As I write this update our family is on opposite sides of the globe. Asha and I (Dawn) are in Canada. I am here raising funds for our budget. While my dear husband is in India caring on the work there. Hannah is not too far away in Toronto working and gearing up for her next year of college.
The weeks of summer fly by as I work on our fund raising. I have watched God work and so many times in our lives and it amazes me how he continues to provide and we are still able to continue to our work in India.
Even though the church headquarters is now only half way finished we are able to hold services in the building. Just before we left India at the end of June we were honored to host a free eye camp. People were able to receive free eye exams and will be able to receive free eye surgery if needed.
The VBS was held in a local church and they averaged 15 children a day. Many of these children were unchurched and broken homes.
This week Hannah will is volunteering as part of summer camp that is held in our home church Highway Gospel. The theme for this years camp "Lego". It is amazing to see our girls to continue on taking part in ministry.
My summer is being spent fundraising a few years ago God started me down a road of selling scarves and bags made in India I called this idea “Scarves of Hope”. I have watched as God has taken the 5 suitcases of scarves that I brought to Canada and often miraculously help raise funds for our budget, Christmas and so much more.
I am still looking for opportunities to sell scarves bags and the many other items that I have. If you are interested in Scarves of Hope or would like to host a Scarves of Hope party please let me know.
Please pray as Asha and I continue to travel and head home to India the first of September. Hannah will start her second year of college in September pray that God will continue to be with her. Please pray that we will see the completion of the church building that God will provide the funds for us to finish.
Prasad and Dawn
