If you could save a child from a life of sex slavery or forced childhood marriage would you? How about if you could help save 50 children from that fate?
There are places in the world (too many places) where poverty and ignorance lead people into human trafficking, mainly of young girls, but also with young boys. One of the most dangerous places on earth to be a child is India, where abject poverty leads too many people to sell their children into slavery or into arranged childhood marriages that doom them to a miserable existence and rob them not only of their childhood but of any dreams that they may have had for their lives.
Two local people, John and Lisa Schiller have had a dream for many years to do more about it than just feel sorry for them. They have a long background in providing foster care of children in need of the love and discipline of a stable family environment. Now they are in the process of realizing a long-held dream to do more. They are behind a project to build an orphanage in India as part of the Angel House program there, which provides safe refuge for hundreds of children across India.
The Angel Hose that John and Lisa are building will begin construction in June of this year and is scheduled to open in the first week of December. Once it is built and open the on-going maintenance and operational costs will be picked up by a local church in India. John and Lisa plan on traveling to India in December of 2017 for the opening of their Angel House and to meet the 50 children who will live there.
Building the orphanage is a big undertaking financially and John and Lisa can use your prayers and financial help. You can see more about the Angel House Program please visit their web site at http://angelhouse.me/. To learn how to support John and Lisa’s project to build their orphanage at www.missions.me/angelhouseofhope. If you can help financially, please contribute at that web site; if not, at least add them and their project to your prayers.
I’m sure that John and Lisa will bring back pictures from India of the children that are being saved and given a chance and the opportunity for a less dangerous life.
