In 1986 I traveled with a group of Christians to Bangalore, India, to share Christ’s love and the way of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. During that trip I met Abraham and his wife Lydia and began a friendship with them that has spanned these many years. Three years after that mission trip, Abraham came to the USA and asked me to help him begin a ministry to orphans and poor children. Both Abraham and Lydia’s parents died when they were young and they had to live in children’s homes while growing up. They know first hand what it is like to grow up without their parents and desire to help children who are in similar circumstances. Thus they began the remarkable ministry known as Alpha Children Ministry.
This coming week Abraham and Lydia will be visiting here in Michigan and sharing about their ministry back in India. Saturday, May 4th at 7:00pm we will be having a dessert fellowship and presentation time at Crossroads Community Baptist Church at 2580 Packard Rd., Ann Arbor, MI 48104. I hope you can join us and hear their incredible story.
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress…” James 1:27 NIV
