Outreach Update for Oct 12, 2022

OUTREACH MINISTRY IN INDIA:

Sudha and John are back home in Ponnur. Amazingly, they were able to participate on YouTube with All Saints’ worship service this past Sunday. Sudha offers gratitude for that Bright Beginnings Learning Center was lifted up in the Prayers of the People. Prayers are requested for the students who are about to take quarterly exams. Please also pray for the fifteen Adult Education students who are beginning to learn the basics of reading.

*Last week a small group of students experienced the special treat of dining at a restaurant.

Each month Outreach sends money to Bright Beginnings. These funds are used to purchase food and materials for the students. At the time the 2022 Outreach budget was approved there were 42 children attending Bright Beginnings. Now the number of students has risen to 63! John and Sudha are trying to “stretch” the funds, but this is difficult. Might it be possible for you to make a one-time or monthly donation to Outreach in India? Every little bit helps!

Any contribution you could make to Outreach in India via Tithe.ly or check would be used to purchase uniforms, food, and materials for Bright Beginnings. There is now a drop down line on Tithe.ly for Outreach in India. Checks may be written to All Saints’ Episcopal Church. In the memo line please write: “Outreach – Mission in India”.

Thank you to those who have already and are continuing to contribute! Your generosity is having a huge impact on the lives of children and their families.

We pray with John and Sudha every Saturday at 8:00 am.

You are invited to join us on Zoom as we pray with and for John and Sudha.

Holiday Outreach Project ~ Stay tuned!

Plans are in the making for people at All Saints’ to have the opportunity to buy a holiday gift for a child at Centro Hispano. Like last year, folks interested in participating will be given the name, age, and gender of a child, as well as specific gift suggestions. If you are interested in participating, it would be helpful if you could email me, Linda Miller, lindy205@verizon.net, as soon as possible. That will better enable me to know how many Centro Hispano children we will be able to help. Thank you!

“ We pray for peace. … We pray for a just peace.
We pray that the lives of innocents and the lives of any
human child of God will be spared.
We pray that our leaders will find a diplomatic way, a nonviolent way. “
