Pastor John and his wife, Sudha, are now back in Ponnur and continue with their team to provide love and support for forty-two children. The center is open after school and in the evening, and the children receive a hot meal and homework help. They sing songs and play games and learn about Jesus. They are part of a community of love.
Last Wednesday was Samrajam’s birthday. She is a young girl whose mother recently died from Covid. Thinking that it might bring Samrajam a bit of cheer, Sudha reached out and asked if we could send Samrajam birthday greetings. Tommy, Angela, Linda, and a group of children at All Saints’ Creation Camp sent video greetings to Samrajam. We received a thank you video from Samrajam. Her face was radiant!

The monthly operational cost for the Bright Beginnings Learning Center is $840. Outreach ministry has contributed money for the month of July. How is our abundance intersecting with the longings and dreams of Bright Beginnings? How might you be called to get to know Pastor John, Sudha, and the community in Ponnur? How might you help? Here’s a live Facebook message from Tommy in which he gives an inside glimpse into the lives of our friends in India.
Please pray for John, Sudha, the children at Bright Beginnings, and their families. We pray with John and Sudha every Saturday at 8:00 am. This past week John shared scripture, prayer, and songs both in Telagu and in English. What a blessing! You are invited to join us on Zoom as we pray with and for John and Sudha.
