Prayer needs for Kidstown from Director, Chuck Valley

 

James 1:27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit the orphans and Widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the World.

 

  • Please pray for the people of south India in the Kerala region. Massive floods have devastated the area and even though our three children’s home in the area are safe, tens of thousands of people are homeless now. The schools are closed, there is no electricity and the wells at the homes were overrun with floodwater. Many of the children at one of our children’s home have been sent out to relatives and friends in the region that do have good water and electricity until the home can be made safe. Please lift up these home and all of the people of the Kerala India region.

 

  • All of our children in India and Nepal started school a few months ago and are in mid-term testing, while in Romania, children head back to school in the next few weeks as they are on the same schedule as here in the US. Pray for new funding for education and scholarships for colleges and trade schools. Our goal is to see every child given the opportunity for a quality education to aid them in their growth into young adulthood.

 

  • Summer time finds many of our supporters gone on vacation and busy enjoying the summer. As a result, we find that donations are significantly down and the budget very tight this summer. Please pray for provisions to be provided during this time and that new donors will step forward to help.

 

  • Pray for our homes in India and Nepal as they continue to be persecuted by governments that are moving away from Religious Freedom. Their freedom to choose for themselves is being taken away and our children’s homes are being forced to adhere to difficult regulations because they are not Hindu operated. Pray for the leaders of these countries to have softened hearts, for God to speak into them and stop this persecution.

 

  • Please pray for the Kidstown Board and staff as we work in setting New Goals & Objectives and an updated 5 Year Plan for the organization. Pray for discernment to make the right choices for the future and to seek wise council.
