Konnect with the Kids : 2016

Topper - 2016.jpg


We are getting ready to start signing people up for Konnect with the Kids ministry for this next year.  Just this morning I received the list of children, their pictures and am in the process of making up all the packets.  We will be having people sign up at conference.  I wanted to give those of you who signed up last year to have a chance to have the same child even if aren’t going to be at conference.  If you would like to be part of this ministry again this year please let me know so I can reserve the child you want.  I am not able to guarantee that “your” child is still at the orphanage, but I will reserve them for you if they are still there.

To see pictures of the current children click, here.

The suggested donation for the gifts is Christmas $20, Clothing $20, School Supplies and Uniform $35.   So the total for 3 gifts would be $75.

If you are interested in being involved again this year, please send an e-mail to with the following information:

-Your first choice of children

-If your first choice is no longer at the orphanage would you still like to be involved?  If so, would you prefer a boy or girl.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

In Christ,
Joy Steiner
Konnect with the Kids Coordinator

Update on the Ministries in India and Myanmar : June 2016

VBS in Tamil Nadu

R.OS. VBS 2.jpg

May is the end of the school year in Tamil Nadu. At both Agape Home and Torbay House, Vacation Bible School (VBS) was held for the children.

Brother Paul reports: The children were divided into three groups according to their ages. Each group had bible lessons, sang songs and did handicraft works. The children also participated in bible quizzing, skits etc. Thank all the donors and sponsors for the children’s ministry as it yields a great impact on the lives of the children and please continue to pray for them.

This is a blessing for the believers and the children in these locations as the government under Prime Minister Modi continues to allow great pressure on Christian ministries and persecution of Christians. More recent stringent regulations regarding orphanages have shut down many. In God’s gracious, providential working, both Agape Home and Torbay House have passed the government inspections and continue to operate.


It is exciting to report to you that the Southern Chin Brethren Fellowship of churches in Myanmar have voted to join hands with the CGBCI for the purpose of church planting among tribal groups in Myanmar. Praise the Lord!

As I mentioned in last month’s update, pray for Naing Bu and his wife, Pam, as they plan to be at Conference and share with us this exciting news and give more details. You will have the opportunity to speak to them in person.

As always, we are very grateful for your prayers and financial gifts to the ministry in India. We pray that you may realize what Jesus said in Luke 16:9.
