Update from India

This dining hall for the Dr. & Mrs. J.W. Cook Children\'s Home in Amravati, India, was built with funds from Grace\'s Harvest OfferingJohn Cook just sent an email sharing some important details of the ministry we help support there.  First, the Dining Hall we gave money to build in 2006’s Harvest Offering is up, and almost finished off–it is already being used by the children who live in the Children’s Home.  Just a few finishing touches are needed.  Children are still waiting to be supported in the Children’s Home, and you can sponsor a child (either from a poor family who cannot raise the child, or the child of a village church planter ministering in an area where the children would not be safe and unable to attend school) for $50 a month. 

Another important development is the construction of the first building for Grace Bible College.  This strategic training facility has outgrown its rental facilities and could triple immediately with this building.  The $200,000 needed will build a three story structure with enough space for classrooms, a library, offices, and housing for staff and students.  The leadership of GBC would like to honor each gift of $200 by placing a brick with the donor’s name in the entry hall of the building.  One thousand such gifts are needed to give GBC a permanent campus, next to the children’s home.

Pray for these ministries, and if God directs, consider a gift to IMI for the ministry in India (either finishing the Children’s Home, sponsoring a child in the home, or helping to build the Bible College building.
