What is one thing you’d like your supporters to know about your home?
This home was started by a vision from God. We really struggled to get by until we were able to partner with Boaz. We offer our sincere thanks to Boaz and everyone who supports us.

What do the children in the home call you?
They call me Father. I hope that they will see their heavenly father through me.

Meet Yeshwanth and Tharun
I’d like to introduce you to the two newest members of the Bethany Blessing family. I cannot thank you enough for your support of the amazing caregiving team looking after these sweet boys. Please pray for their transition.
Yeshwanth’s father left the family many years ago. His mother cleans for a living and is not able to make a stable living. She sent Yeshwanth’s older brother, Dhanusha, to live at Bethany Blessing in 2022 and was happy with how well he did there. In early 2023, she asked Pastor James to take her second son as well. The boys have one more sister at home. Pray that the family’s circumstance will change and that they will all come to know the Lord.
Tharun is the older of two children. HIs father died of COVID, despite his mother’s desperate efforts to save him. Tharun’s mother recently brought him to Bethany Blessing, likely due to the burden of being a single mother with little money in a low-income country.

New Children Spotlight
Franka and Santra’s father started having an affair many years ago but finally left his family completely more recently. Their mother has taken work as a domestic worker, which prevents her from caring for her children. Pray for Santra and Franka to have a smooth transition to their new home, as well as that their mother will be able to find a job that allows her to care well for her children as well. Thank you

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a bonus update with you. At the beginning of the month, we finally returned to India for the first time in three long years. It was such a huge blessing! Since we were able to visit the home that you support, I wanted to give you a brief update.
We got off the airplane and snagged a few hours of precious sleep before heading to Bethany Blessing. As we pulled down the street and saw Pastor James’ family and the children spill into the street to greet us, relief and joy washed over me. We’d done it. We were really there and being reunited with our partners and their beautiful families. We did a lesson, played outside, and gave out a lot of hugs. What a wonderful time.
Taylor and Maggie returned the next day while April and I led house parent training. They had another lovely day and Maggie was able to get pictures and interviews for her media projects. Maybe you’ll get the chance to see some of those videos once they’re ready! Thank you for your continued support.
