Mercy In India

The story begins with a infant baby girl found on the side of the river naked and abandoned by her mother, left to die. A pastor walking along the shore found her and took her to his Christian house and raised her as his own. Fast forward, March 2016 while visiting India, we found ourselves in her home as guests. Miss Mercy is now in her late 30's.

After traveling half way around the world, I stepped out of the airport in Chennai India. The heat and humidity was so bad at about 2:30 in the morning it staggered me, I wondered how I would survive! Next were the mosquitoes, we were told they carried malaria, and on top of that our ride was no where to be found!


Lou and two elders of nomadic tribe

There were hundreds and hundreds of desperate native people waiting to solicit their services as we walked from the airport toward the parking lot. Fear began to creep into my thoughts; had I done the right thing by coming here? Would we make it out of here alive? We were told the people spoke English, but I could hardly understand a word they said!

I looked and looked, still no driver, no one to pick us up from the airport. As the people crowded in toward us we would retreat back toward the safety of the airport. Each attempt took us further from the safety of the airport, and deeper into this crowd of people, and their world of hopeless, poverty and despair. After arriving in the town of Nagalapuram India,and feeling the love of the people we knew we were in good hands. We have many stories to share about our journey and the love of God demonstrated to us. Once back home I realized the biggest need is for two teachers, books,and pencils to provide basic education for 120 children from one nomadic tribe. Pastor John is estimating $200 per month for the two teachers and supplies. The need is great, if you can help, please do so.

May God bless you richly!

Once more we thank you very, very much for your kind support. Our financial circumstances are not good but your provision helps greatly and we appreciate what you are doing through your donors. Together we wait on our Lord.

At the end of August we had our monthly pastors meeting and we were able to provide lunch. Here is my report to you as you requested.

Please note my list of pastors with their names, work place and church member's details (2 Attachments). We have 45 pastors but I have listed 25 plus Mercy, my wife, and myself because that is all we can financially support currently.
