"GRACE CHILDREN'S ORPHANAGE MISSION STATEMENT"
Pure religion and undefiled
before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their
affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. (James 1:27) "
On November 6th, year 1996, a
great cyclone hit us. We lost everything. Homes and fields were damaged
severely. 2,000 people died at this time. 1996 was a terrible year for our area. Amalapuram, A devastating cyclone
occurred with heavy downpour of rain and lashing winds where thousands of
houses washed away, thousands of yielding trees felled to the ground, thousands
of human beings, children men, & women and old people were washed away and
died and many animals died. It was every Pathetic and heart wrenching
experience to go through that scene. Children without parents, relatives were
in the streets after the heavy delusion, begging for food and clothing many
became subject to the communicable diseases like cholera, Typhoid and decently,
pneumonia, dengue fever etc., Millions of people remained as suffering
population. As result of this, we opened our home to many orphan children. It
is by faith in God alone,
Our Orphanage ministry come to the rescue of the people especially children and old widows who lost their Belongings in the natural calamities such as floods, fire accidents, earthquake ,cyclone etc., by attending in teams by helping them cooking vessels, rice, clothing and blankets, medicines and other required items. The entire expenditure is being met by our Ministry all over the state wherever such calamity occur, As I looked at this horrible suffering sconce, I was moved and I visited the homes of the surviving families and believers and begged them to share some food and clothing for the cyclone victims. I and few others took up this task to feed the people and distributed relief clothing. Even though I lost my own house yet I engaged myself in giving relief to these especially, I paid special attention to the orphans and old widows. And supporting equipment for people with disabilities.
I started this ministry with the
name GRACE CHILDREN'S ORPHANAGE in 1996 itself and got it registered with the
Government in the year 1998. The registered charity number, 0101701480. We the
organization Grace Children's orphanage committed to serve the destitute
children (boys and girls) Since that time the orphan children have been
receiving school education, residency, food, clothing, uniform, medical care
and widows are being given total care like food, clothing, housing, medical
care etc., the Lord have been promoting this ministry through donations from
individuals and friends. The ministry is still in progress, looking forward for
friends, and individuals for support. The ministry is growing, orphan children have
to get into high school and college. We cannot ignore them at this juncture.
They need to study and take up some job or trade and maintain and support their
Our primary motto is to inculcate
the spiritual learning and build up God's Wisdom among the boarders. In the
beginning we have started with 10 children in our home with our own resources.
Now the present strength raised up to 75 children with in 3 branches (places)
from Believers of our Lord Jesus and Christian donors who are interested in our
main aim to uplift the destitute children. By the God's grace the maintenance
of hostel etc., is being developed day by day. Among the 3 branches, 2 branches
are our own buildings and the remaining 1 branch have taken by paying rent
(rented building) We have to construct permanent buildings in the remaining
rented building for which we are praying God every day. More parent less and
poor children approaching us to give them also admission in our institution,
because it is running and conducting on sound lines without profit making
efforts. But since we are not able to maintain the present staff itself with
our limited sources, we require some more sponsors to assist us in this mighty
effort to admit more and more poor and needy children in this area into our
Grace Children's orphanage, charity organization.
Therefore, I need your help,
please adopt this orphanage and widows home and God will bless you. Please pray
for our ministry unceasingly. So that our good Lord will speak to you to be a
part of this Grace Children's Orphanage Ministry. Looking forward to your
favorable reply & support. Please do pray for us and for our work In India.
In HIS Grace Services.
