Letter from Sadiya's Pastor

I'm sharing another pastor letter with you today, this time it is from my sweetheart Sadiya, from India. I just love reading these letters!

Dear Sponsor,
Greetings in the name of God.
I am pastor Jacob, engaged in ministry with staff working with us at the Chandan Hulla Child Development center in Delhi, India. In this center we provide care to your Compassion-sponsored child. We are thankful to you for your support for your sponsored child.
To introduce ourselves, we, as a spiritual welfare society, engaged in ministry in different parts of India. We are doing charitable works among the people in humble ways in order to lift the people from poverty.
Chandan Hulla, Delhi is a place where most of the people are poor, illiterate, and non-hygenic. The majority of the people are unemployed and the rest of the people are daily laborers. And they live in rented rooms with common bathrooms and toilets and each family have more than four children. Illiteracy, unemployment, lack of health check-ups and general awareness are the main issues among this community.
As the people of Chandan Hulla don't have permanent income, they cannot look after their family and children properly, to give proper education, food, and health care. Even they don't know the value of education. They are not getting the benefit of information technology. Most of the male members of the family are drunkards. They need general awareness.
Very recently, we started our center in partnership with Compassion International. Through this program, there will be a lot of change in the society. It will uplift the children from poverty and spiritual bondage. Also, this program helps the unprivelaged children of Chandan Hulla to get primary education, health care, and computer education. The adult literacy and general awareness program can be done so that we know the love of God both in action and word. Above all, we can share the joy of a deeper, personal relationship with God, among the village, through these children.
The children can be benefitted educationally, spiritually, socially, physically, and mentally. Chandan Hulla is a mixed community of religious beliefs. Through these children, we can reach those who have never heard of God to extend faith to many people, through these children.
We are grateful to you for your support and prayers for the children of this program. Through your support, the local church will be able to witness in an effort to show God's love in action. We trust that God will continue to work through each of us fulfilling his promises to the children of Chandan Hulla slum in Delhi.
Please pray for our center and staff. Pray always for your sponsored child. We pray God for using you to support our children and bring transformation in their lives. May God continue to pour his blessings upon you.
Thanking you, in His service,
Pastor Jacob
