Update 2 (7/21/2020): We are so proud of our kids and leaders in Manipur. The Lockdown in Manipur has dramatically affected all - just as in the USA. Know that the kids are praying for You! They thank God daily for all who send help and enable us to care for them.
The rural mountain setting has it's advantages - unlike our young people in South India, our kids can get outside!! The humble home is on a piece of land that borders the river from which they get their drinking and bathing water. Because of the location, they can enjoy it's fun and beauty even in lockdown!
They are spending time in the sun as well as with the Son - you can see it in their worship. They have drawn close to the Lord and grown in their faith in these months home without school or other usual activities. We were able to supply the home a one-month backup supply of rice. Supply trucks have continued to bring goods up the mountain through this emergency, but only food vendors and the firstaid center are open. Locals can only leave their residence during certain hours and only for food supplies or medical help. The military keeps a watchful eye on the truckers health and so far it seems to have kept the tribal peoples of this mountain safe. We are praying for more reserves in case the trucks should be suspended at any time.
We have so much to tell you, incuding video "hello's" from each of the kids - email us at email@example.com or sign up at our website for email updates. Also please visit our FaceBook Page GemSeekers Ministries! We will be resuming updates at this time. We felt to hold off as our friends in the USA and around the world care for their own families during this season, but you have been faithful nonetheless to remember the poor and needy. To all our supporters, you shine!
Blessings to you and your famiies, for a thousand generations until the Lord comes!
