For quite some time now, a number of you have contributed to
the care of the orphan boys and foster care boys in the Agape Home orphanage in Coimbatore and for the children in the Torbay House orphanage in Paruvakkudi south of Coimbatore. Growing needs and the potential loss of financial support from a large donor have brought us to the place where we need to make a change in the “Konnect with a Kid” program.
Beginning January 1, 2018, we are seeking to have 100 donors who will commit to giving $25 per month to the care and education of the boys at Agape Home and for the boys and girls at Torbay House. Some years ago, the Foreign Missions Panel of the CGBCI endorsed this ministry for 2 reasons. One was the avenue for contacts and evangelism that it provides in the communities where the homes are. Secondly, it provides for a Christian education of the children in these homes. Over the years, this has proven to be a fruitful ministry as parents and children have come to know the Lord through this ministry. Just a few years ago, you may remember, 3 teens from Agape Home were baptized.
If you are currently involved in giving to Konnect with a Kid, would you consider changing your giving to $25 per month? If you are not currently involved with Konnect, would you consider this opportunity and investment? The monthly amount of $25 would begin for January 2018. If you would like to participate in this, you will receive a picture of the child whom you are helping and an address to write to him/her. To sign up for this program, please contact Grace Steiner by e-mail at email@example.com or you could call her at 330-749-7156. If 100 people or units (families; 2-3 go together) commit, then we should be able to meet the monthly needs of the children.
