Late in 2010 a very generous donor in New Zealand designated significant gifts to be used for the children and orphans who are cared for by many of our ministries in Asia. The funds were shared between India, Thailand and Myanmar and were remitted in time to be used to give hundreds of children some extra joy as they celebrated the first advent of the Lord Jesus Christ at Christmas.
Below is a report and pictures received from The Good Samaritan Trust in Chennai, which is one of the partners of our Indian ministry – Yesuway Jeevan Mission.
The Managing Trustee, Rev John Mathew wrote…
