It is time again for some news from the children in the orphanage. I am so grateful for the opportunity to invest in the lives of these precious children. Not only with food and clothing, but also, we can invest in the children spiritually.
Every month we run an event for them, and we are so thankful for Janice from the UK to run the program each time. We will try and put a little movie clip in the update next month.
In this update, you will find a word from pastor Sujan, the children’s daily schedule, and we introduce the beautiful Sai Latha to you.
God bless you!
Hans and Marlies
We start with a word from our partner, Pastor Sujan.
We salute you all the saints in Jesus name,
Thank you for your gracious love and monthly support to provide food for the children.
The children are going on well at our home.
On the 21st of September, we celebrated the birthday of Sandeep. We got chocolates, and Sandeep distributed them to all the children in the orphanage. He was very excited about his birthday. All the children prayed for Sandeep on that day.
We provide boiled water for the children to drink every day because many people suffer from seasonal viral fever. By God’s grace, the children are in good health. Once a week, we provide chicken for the children. The children are strengthening spiritually and physically. We provide soaps, shampoo, hair oil and toothpaste for the children monthly twice.
The orphan children are with happiness at our home because of your monthly support. Orphan children gladly send their lots of love, lovely kisses, and lovely hugs to all the sponsors and HMI.
The children are praying for new dresses to wear on Christmas day because the Christmas festival is the only one to celebrate the Christians in India. They wear new dresses, and they will enjoy that day. When our children see them, they feel sad and think they would appreciate that day if they had parents. So please pray for them.

Meet Sai Latha
Every month we want to introduce one of the children to you.
This month Sai Latha.
Sai Latha was born on the 16th of June 2010, and she has one sister.
She grew up in the village Chirala in the Prakasam district. Both parents were infected with HIV, and her father died in 2016 of brain cancer and HIV.
Her mother is still alive but in no condition to care for Sai Latha because she is suffering from HIV and Diabetes and cannot work. No one was able to help this mother and her children. In June 2017, Sai Latha became part of our house, and we love her dearly.
