Dear Partners,                                                       

May the unconditional love of our risen Lord Jesus Christ be with you always. Thank you so much for your love, prayers and generous support during these difficult times. You have been a great blessing to us .We are so thankful to the Lord that He has united us for such times as this, to accomplish His divine plan and purpose for His precious children in India. May I humbly encourage you to keep your mind and heart focused on the Lord and His divine promises as we face many uncertainties. The Lord says in Psalm 41:1-2 “Blessed is he that considers the poor, the Lord will deliver him in the times of trouble”. I don't understand many things that are happening around us but I know in my heart that many people are struggling and going through some difficult times. Please know this for sure that, you are not alone. The risen Savior is interceding for you and His Holy Spirit is with you even in the difficult times. I believe with all my heart that Romans 8:28 is true all the time! My personal prayer is: Lord teach me how to love you.

He is not here... Luke 24:6 

The death and resurrection of  our Lord Jesus Christ is one of the greatest event in the history of mankind.He was tortured and crucified for our sins, from that  Roman cross He proclaimed. “It is finished” The  mission for which the Father has sent Him into this world. He willingly submitted His soul to the heavenly Father. One of His secret disciple asked the Pilate for His body and He was buried. On the first day of the week early in the morning Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James and other women came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb. They went in and did not find the body of the Lord  Jesus. And it happened, as they greatly perplexed about this, that behold two men stood by them in shining garments. As they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, He is risen!"

After two thousand years, the lost and confused humanity is still searching for the Truth, but  unfortunately in wrong places. May the light and love of our risen  Savior shine through us that many may come to know Him personally as their Lord and Savior. Many people are realizing the emptiness within. Its not the material things of this world or the job security and the bank  balance that is able to keep their heads and hearts together  but its our faith and trust in the living Christ that can help us to hang in there. Many times I wonder if God is somehow trying to get our    attention. Friends I hope we can pray with all our hearts as Paul said it “That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His suffering.”  The resurrection comes only  after suffering and death but our flesh does not like that!!

House of Hope and Healing.

At Servant’s Heart we are a 24/7 ministry operation, that means.. Any child who needs food, clothing, medication or shelter can show up at any time and we are there to serve them in Jesus name. Sometimes children just want to come and sit quietly and pray. Let me share with you a story how God is touching the lives of this children and their parents.

Everyday Mrs. Singh literally comes running with her four children. One is physically and the other one is emotionally handicap. She lives in constant  self condemnation believing that she must have done something wrong in her previous life or committed a great sin i.e. reincarnation belief. Majority of the people think that if a person is born with physical or mental handicap it has to do with their past life and the bad things they did. One day she testified to me that, “When I am here in this place I can feel something very different. I can feel the peace and some supernatural strength that calms my inner spirit.”

The Lord has given us the opportunity to tell her about His love and forgiveness. He is the one Who can set her free from all condemnation, guilt, and fears and give her the hope that she longs for. Friends only the eternity will tell how God has used you in a marvelous way to touch the lives of these precious souls on the other side of the globe. We thank God for each one of you for partnering with us in these crucial times. Please continue to pray for us and the children. Most of them are preparing for the final exams, pray that God would grant them His wisdom and strength. Thank you dear friends for your  partnership and generous support.
