Greetings to you
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ from all the Bryce Homes India children and

God has given us great opportunity to serve among the children through you all.
By grace of God all children are doing well. even though there are some problems
we face every day. God is faithful and giving the foster parents loving and
caring hearts. In all things we can see progress in their physical, spiritual
and schooling life
The new children are adjusted with the Christian home system. They pray, study
the Bible and attend church. Brother John and his wife are leading and guiding
them along with our help in spiritual, physical and schooling. The boys are
growing up. Sometimes we have difficulties handling them but they are obedient
to all of us when we talk to them in love.

Testimony: During the time of Christmas we started to teach the children about
the birth of Christ on earth, we continued the teaching till Good Friday and
Easter. During these days the parents took them to church regularly. And we
taught them why Christ died on the cross, the necessity of confession our sin
and forgiveness of our sin by Christ and the eternal life which Christ gives us
by forgiving our sins.
From Family -1- Vidya, Family -3- Samantha, Family -4- Sharolin are able to
understand the need of forgiveness of their sin and they confessed that Jesus is
their Lord. Now it is our responsibility to lead them carefully and strengthen
them in faith. other kids are also imitating the elders so we hope God will do
rest of the work. Pray for their spiritual growth.
