We have opened a children's home with many orphaned children living there. Nepal is one of the poorest countries in Asia and has been under a state of emergency since 2001.
This home is a double blessing because it was established to allow a Bible translator to stay in the country to translate the Bible and will also help some desperately poor children.
CCC began it's ministry in Calcutta; one encounter with throngs of poor, hungry children brought Lovie & Syvelle to tears and they knew they had to do something. Since 1974 CCC has helped to support homes/schools in many cities in India.
We believe you have to meet the immediate needs of a person before you can introduce the message of Christ to them. Once they join the home and have a safe place to live, are fed and clothed, the children learn about the saving power of Jesus Christ.
the people are still struggling to recover from the devastating affects of the genocide that occurred in the 1990's. Many of the children saw their parents brutally murdered, others lost their parents to AIDS and still others were separated from their families while fleeing from the soldier's brutal attacks. Under conditions like these, children desperately need to experience the love of Jesus.
The letters we recieve from the children often thank the sponsors that now they have a safe place to live. In the home, they know there will be food each day. And they know an education would be an impossibility without a sponsor.
civil war has devastated the country and has disrupted people's lives for decades. Children witnessed the brutal murders of their parents, their homes destroyed and many of them were brutalized as well. These children have grown and are now adults living with more burden than anyone should have to carry. There has been a remarkable healing for those who came to Uganda Gospel Rehabilitation Center (UGRC), our first home in Africa. The love they were shown by the Christian teachers and workers help them find the peace and comfort they needed to heal.
Many of them are now adults who have returned to the school to teach so they can help others as they were once helped. And some are now preaching the Gospel and seeing lives changed.
