Jaya is three years old.
This beautiful little girl is named Jaya and she is three years old. She was born in the West Godavari district of India. While her parents worked in the farming industry she was left in the care of a neighbor. Sadly, one day her parents were both killed in a car accident. Jaya was sent to live with her aunt. Since she was so young and needed a lot of care, her aunt’s husband felt they could no longer care for her. Her aunt began to look for an orphanage that would accept her. Due to her age, several orphanages turned her down, until finally they heard about the Feed My People Orphanage in Tenali. They made the 159 mile journey to see if Reverend Thomas would accept her and they received her with open arms! Reverend Thomas told us:
Now Jaya is with us and we are very glad to love and take care of her. Please pray for our orphanage and for her so that God will show grace and she will grow up physically and spiritually in His will.
For over 25 years, Global Outreach has partnered with Feed My People Orphanages in India. We count it a privilege to be able to help provide food, clothing, education, medical care and Biblical training to nearly 300 orphans in India. Your faithful giving makes this possible!
"He said to them, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.' And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them." Mark 10:14-16
