“This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” (2 Corinthians 9:12)
News from Bethania Kids is a vibrant source of strength for us in this uncertain time. Colorful pictures of the children, stories of Bethania graduates finding employment, and updates on what’s growing in the kids’ gardens are all so encouraging! We know that when we open up an email from Bethania we’re going to find evidence that God is faithful and is still powerfully at work in our world. Even news of the children’s struggles in being separated from their Bethania Homes and Care Centers in this time of global pandemic only points us back to the hope that has come through this ministry all along.
We’re perceiving that hope more clearly now, in news about the efforts of India staff members to continue actively caring for Bethania kids and their families with prayers, phone calls and home visit, and in the work of U.S. staff to help sponsors continue to feel a connection with the children. In all of this, we’re seeing how blessed we are as sponsors to be a small part of this ministry, and how the blessing we receive is far greater than any we will ever give. Thank you Bethania Kids for shining the light of Jesus’ love so brightly – we thank God for you!
