"God’s Word is persuasive having the potential to slowly chip away at a human being till the truth strikes his heart. We distributed the players whispering a prayer that it would change the whole Banchhada community."
"How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed?
How are they to believe in him of whom they haven't heard?
And how are they to hear without someone preaching?"
- Romans 10:14
Imagine a father staring into the big brown eyes of his daughter as she wriggles slowly in his arms. She’s got big round eyes, a small chin and soft curly hair just like her mother. The father would have tears in his eyes, dreaming about the things this bundle of joy would achieve in life just like any normal Father would. But you are WRONG...

‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' - Matthew 25:40 Every day for the past 35 days, the villagers had diligently gathered around the bore well and prayed earnestly for rain. They chose not to give up on a God who does everything beautifully in HIS time. God heard thier prayers.
They told us that the only well in their colony had dried up a few years ago, the bore well with a hand pump that was later installed has also run dry. Presently, the whole colony pools in money to source water from private water tankers. This water is reused several times by the residents in order to save money.
The children did not mind the heat and were so full of joy. They sang songs for us and welcomed us with their beautiful smiles. We distributed these lovely dolls and the players to them. It was wonderful to see many hugging and kissing their soft dolls. They were excited and we hope that the players they listen to will not only be helpful for their own spiritual nourishment but for everyone in their homes. It is our prayer that each child will know the Lord Jesus Christ in a personal manner.
