Let’s reach out to the Children

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14 NIV)

Children’s Day is celebrated on 14th November in India and on 20th November Universally. Children’s Day is not simply a day to celebrate children for who they are, but to create awareness that children need to be protected against trafficking, exploitation and discrimination.

Have you paused to wonder why the kid begging on the street was not at school at that time of day?

Have you paused to ask why the 12 year old girl is wearing loud make up and standing by the side of the road at that hour of the night?

Have you wondered why the 10 year old boy is working at the construction site?

Most of us turn a blind eye to the wrongs done to the children in our society unless it is our own.

We at Lord Jesus Ministry reach out to kids on the streets, those living under the flyovers and to orphans. Despite the odds being against us, we try to provide these children with basic education, equipping them with a life tool that will help them to have a better life.

We urge you to do something different this year.

Come Volunteer, Contribute or simply Pray for us as we get onto the streets to give a child a reason to smile this Children’s Day.

Kids Fiesta

13699400_10207209433660277_247801868_oWe conducted a two day program for the children on the 8th and 9th of July 2016 at our school in Gangnapur. Where we brought along the children from our street education program in Kidderpore. These Kids do not have homes as they live under the bridge in Kidderpore. This was made like an outing for them to see the benefits of education and interact with the orphanage kids we take care of.

We are glad to say that the program was a roaring success, we not only brightened the lives of these in our small special way, but also showed these children the love of Christ. It was a blessing as well as an encouragement to have our Ex Students volunteer and help and motivate these kids.

Day 1 was kicked off with a devotion session to inaugurate and bless the event, songs were sung and prayers were said. The 1st were the outdoor events followed by lunch. After lunch we hosted a drawing competition for the children and many other participants from around the village. There was even a soccer match which was played out between our Guests, friends and the Ministry Children, with the children emerging as the victors. After a short recess we commenced with evening Devotion following we had a Talent Show Program for all present where some of the children displayed their talents and our guests entertained us with their acts and talents. Dinner was then served on the terrace, the barbecue was to die for.

Day 2 started with a treasure hunt for the children where they were to search for goodies hidden on the campus, followed by housie where gifts were given to the winners. We broke for lunch after which we had the closing program, thanking all our guests and participants for taking their time to make this event a complete success.

We sought to give the children a good time as well as instill the spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ in them, everybody went home happy and joyful which couldn’t be more rewarding to us. We wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Friends and Guests who took active part with the children and ensuring their enjoyment.13711703_10207209434620301_586618994_o

Thanking Police Amid Heat Wave

VIDEO: This past Sunday temperatures soared in Kolkata to 43 degrees or 109 degrees. Across the region there have been many deaths related to the heat waves plus many places suffering a water crisis.

Our church decided to hit the streets in order to honor those serving out on our streets during the heat to thank our Indian Police Service for all they do for us!

Join us in prayers for them and all they do to keep us safe as well as the many facing the terrible heat.
