“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10).
The devil tries to destroy God’s work—especially efforts to bring children up to know Jesus. We’ve seen this in India where the radical Hindu government is targeting Christian organizations and forcing them to close. (You probably heard that Compassion Intl has now pulled out of India because of this.)
In our case, God seems to have done a miracle—in spite of the régime’s threats on two of our children’s homes. Thanks to a local government official who is Christian, for now our homes and children are safe—but please continue praying to that end. (Photo - children in Grace Home praying.)
 In Mexico, our kids love to learn the Bible (seen here in these photos). But we need to pray for their caregivers/parents. Perhaps because of drugs, they are often negligent, or just clueless. For example, we have a dentist who offers his services freely, but unless Deanna or Gaby bring the kids they may not go.
 Deanna plans to teach parenting classes for these adults, using my book, “Heaven Help Me Raise These Children!—biblical direction for practical parenting issues.”  Pray this endeavor will be successful.
 Recently, at a Calvary Chapel Bible College event, we were given the opportunity to speak to students about the call to help orphans and children-in-crisis. Time well spent: Some young adults are now considering working with children, mentoring, adopting, fostering… Fruit multiplied!
 Thank you for your continued support and prayers for the precious children in our programs and homes. We could not reach them without your generosity. Send your tax-deductible contributions to the address above—or via the website: www.orphansfirst.org.
