Share the JOY with Meri

As I mentioned in an earlier post I donated money in each family member's name to a new home in India built and run by The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Ky. of which I am an associate. The new home is Asha Kiran "House of Hope" in Dharuhera,India.
It is for the daughters of women caught in the terrible lifestyle of street workers.
Any boy born to the workers is taken and give to a wealthy family, as boys are more valuable in that culture and are permitted an education.
The girls are kept and introduced into the work at 12 years old.
The SCNs in India are working very hard to break that cycle.

Seeing our family involved in such work brings much JOY to HH and I and the enthusiastic way they all accepted the idea of a gift to help others added to the JOY.

Megan and Ben after reading their letters I had written for them and the story of the girl we are sponsoring.

Grands and our daughter discussing the 
gift to Asha Kiran and how they feel to be part of this great ministry.

Thomas and Ellen, grands, stating how proud they are to be part of this also.
Thomas says
"I like this, Mamaw. It's a good thing."

All of the grandchildren were very grateful for this different gift and all agreed to contribute next Christmas to pitch in to make another donation to support our girl.
