Hello! Happy fall. Thank you so much for your support of Comeback Boys’ Home.

How do you show your kids you love them without using words?

We hug them, play with them, give them gifts, and take them on outings

Spotlight on Subramani

Age: 12
Birthday: November 5
Subramani and his brother Sujan were brought to Comeback by the Center for Women and Children. Their father is mentally ill and their mother cannot take care of them all and also work. Subramani struggles in school but is very sweet and playful. They come from a Hindu family and Subramani has a heavy burden for his unsaved loved ones. Please pray that things will change so the boys can be with their family and for their salvation. Pastor Christopher also asks for prayer for Subramani’s self-image. He feels very self-conscious about his teeth.
Prayer Request
For Pastor Christopher and Janani – For strength and protection from persecution, as well as protection from anything that would put their kids in less safe situations 
For the kids – For good health and the guidance of the Holy Spirit
For India – For peace and relief from inflation

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.

I have never gotten the chance to visit Comeback before so this was a very special trip! After we finished house parent training and said goodbye to our partners, we set out with Pastor Christopher and Janani for their town. It was a long drive, but we finally greeted the kids that evening, including sweet baby Hadriel. We spent the entire next day with them as well, before heading home the day after. We did a lesson, played games, got pictures, and watched a little show the kids had prepared for us. It was such a great day. Thank you for continuing to support Comeback!

How could your home be improved?

I hope you’re having a great summer so far. Please find Pastor Christopher’s update below.

If you could relive one day from the past at your children’s home, which day would it be and why?
I would choose the Boaz team’s visit in 2018. It was a huge blessing and all our children enjoyed it. We are excited for them to come again in the fall.

Spotlight on Gopi

Age: 12
Birthday: October 11
Gopi is smart, responsible, and loves God. He enjoys leading prayer. He lost his father when he was young. Gopi’s mother brought him to Comeback, feeling that she couldn’t care for him and work. Pray for his health and wisdom and that he’d be able to reunite with his mother. He wants to be a minister when he grows up.

For Pastor Christopher and his family
  • For God’s protection in everything.

Hello, prayer warriors! We have an urgent prayer request. 

 

Pastor Christopher and Janani at Comeback Children’s Home have a newborn! A young unmarried couple brought him by this morning and asked them to take the little boy, who had been born just 3 days earlier. Due to the extreme ostracization they would face being unmarried parents, they didn’t feel like there was any way they could keep the baby. Pastor Christopher and Janani tried to talk to them, but their minds were made up and they were eager to leave. Their hearts were grieved by the separation of this family, but after prayer, Pastor Christopher and Janani knew they had to take him. 

 

The problem is that their children’s home is only certified to take older children. They can sidestep these rules in this case by officially adopting the little boy, but they need to do so speedily. Please pray for the following:

 

1. That the adoption process will go quickly and smoothly

2. That the Center for Women and Children will not have a chance to make trouble before then

3. For the baby’s health. He has been neglected.

4. For everyone as they adjust to having a baby in the home for the first time in many years!

Thank you so much for your continued support for Comeback Children’s Home! Please see Pastor Christopher’s update below:


Can you tell us about a specific challenge you saw God overcome for your home?
Recently, they had to renew their children’s home license with the Hindu nationalist Center for Women and Children. Everything went well! This is a huge answer to prayer.

Spotlight on Shivkumar

Age: 10
Birthday: June 14
Shivkumar is an innocent and shy little boy. He is from a devout Hindu family and had never heard the Gospel before coming to Comeback. His father left when he was two years old and his mother works as a laborer. The Center for Women and Children determined that he was being neglected and removed him from the home. They placed him at Comeback, where he is doing well. He is very interested in reading his Bible and growing in his relationship with Christ. 
Prayer Requests
For Pastor Christopher and his family – For wisdom and strength. Also for one of their biological daughters, Helda, who tested positive for COVID and is quarantined.
For the children – For their upcoming exams 
For India – For a reversal of the increasing persecution
