Dec 2018 Bryce Homes India
Dear Brother Roger and every single supporter of Bryce Homes India.
We (myself along with my wife Roselin and foster parents and children) greet you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and Wish you all Happy Christmas and Prosperous New Year.
We all are very much thankful to all from the bottom of our heart. Because of your prayers and support all homes are able to experience God's grace, mercy, love and providence.
I am Pastor Wilson serving the Lord in India along with my wife. Since 2017 me and my wife are leading, guiding, helping children and foster parents spiritually, mentally and physically. We are committed to the building up of children and parents. Through this program we are able to share the gospel to many who are kept away from main stream of life.
We are currently taking care of 12 children; four Bryce Homes each accommodate 2 children, and in one home 4 children are staying; all homes are located in different places. Now we are taking care of 6 boys and 6 girls.
1). We praise the Lord for loving foster parents.
God has given us good loving and caring parents who take care of children and share all their resources and are building each child spiritually, mentally and socially stronger, along with me and my wife.
2). Praise points according to each family:
Family 1: Single mother Akshaya taking care of Sagar, who is now 2nd Class. Vidya is attending 4th class this year. Both are good in studies and growing spiritually, able to read Bible by their own and understanding who Jesus Christ is at this early age. Akshaya and we both are helping to build their life by the grace of God. Children are completely adjusted with Akshaya.
Family 2: CH. Prakash and Pravllika are taking care of Chintu and Chinnu. Chintu is in UKg in schooling this year. Both are learning many things in Sunday school able to sing songs and Chintu is doing good in studies as well as in his Sunday School. They are most loving kids in their class.
Family 3: P. John and Sumalatha are taking care of the girls Samantha - 4th class. and Mahitha is 2nd class. This year Samantha came to know the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior. This is greatest blessing of this year for Bryce Home ministry in India. She is witnessing Christ in her home. Her natural mother started to attend the church and we all are hoping that she will soon commit her life to Christ and will bring change in her community. Mahitha is became good listener and showing obedience to elders, she is very naughty and wants to play a lot, good in studies. John and his wife are very happy because God is using them in this way for His glory.
Family 4: G. David and Shalini are very much thankful to God and all of you because you made it possible to have two angels in their home in the form of Sharolin who is in 3rd class and Greeshmann in to 2nd class. God taught and found Sharolin in her young age to be His daughter. She not only learned about forgiving others she witness to her family the joy of forgiveness of Christ which she is having in her life. She is encouraging her family to attend church and adopt a new way of life style. We hope soon we can witness great testimony from her home. Greeshmann is slow listener but very attentive. She talks more and asks more questions to me and her foster parents. We all try to answer her but sometimes parents bring discipline with love.
Family 5: This home is started in 2018 January and Pastor B. John and Phebe are taking care of 4 boys. In the beginning we had lot of challenges with the boys because of their past life and habits. But by the grace of God and with all your prayers we have seen many changes in their daily life. We taught them how to pray and read Bible daily and also memorize the Word of God and pray according to word of God. Our gracious God stated to work in their life and we are praising the Lord for His word in the hearts of the Children. Athin is now in 8th class, this academic year he is selected for School Kabbaddi Team and represented for his High school team and finished in second position in district level sports. Athin also keeping good pace in his studies. He is good in memorizing Bible. shows obedience to all which was not before. We all are praying that he may come to the Lord soon. Pavan - is now in 6th class. He had regular lying habit but God worked in his life and now he left that habit. Spends lot of time in prayer and reading Bible. He is doing good in his schooling and gets good marks in all exams. Solomon - is now in 8th class. He also had bad habit of stealing money before coming our home. But Lord worked through His Word and heard our prayers and he confessed that it is sin. Solomon confessed that Jesus Christ is the Lord and no other God in this world he completely changed his life. Now he is growing in grace we all are carefully teaching all the boys about Christ. He is also good in his academic studies, gets good marks and also loved by his teachers. Songarin -is now in 6th class; he is good listener and learner. He is also good in sports this year he took part in long jump and finished in 5th position. He was disappointing of finishing 5th position but we encouraged him not to lose sight and hope for next year. He is very active in home and church activities, loves to sing songs and is doing good in his education.
3). Praise the Lord for new clothes.
This year all children got two pairs of new clothes and pair of sandals for Christmas and New Year. All children took part in Christmas carol rounds, Drama (Play), memory verse competition in their respective local church's. I can say all children had good joyful time.
4). We praise the Lord for granting sustaining power to children-- Health.
All 12 children are having lot of physical health problems and many times fall sick. But God always heard all our prayers and healed them and gave good health. Some time they need lot of attention from us, according to their need we spend our time with them. Above all this year God never left all of us alone. We witnessed Lord working in children hearts and also parents and foster parents life. We praise the Lord for His grace and mercy love and care and providence. Lord is changing all of us in His image day by day by teaching through Word and good and bad times.

Thanking you all.
We are thank full to each one of our donors whom we never meet personally, but you all kept open your homes and hearts to raise the children who are socially out cast and desperate in need of spiritual and physical deliverance. You all showed love of Christ, and your tentative made us to go forward to do greater things for the glory of God. We continually appreciate your love, prayers, support, for the children. Your one step made some people to see the light (Christ) in their lives and homes. It helped us to share the gospel to many those who are living in darkness. Without you all this program will be never seen this great day, because of all of you we are able to start Bryce Homes .
Please uphold us in your prayers and continually share the love of Christ with us so many can be saved. God may bless your families, work, church's. God Bless you all.
