"When you reap your harvest in the field, and forget a sheaf in
the field, you shall not go back and get it; it shall be for the stranger,
and the widow, that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your
hands." Deuteronomy 24:19
Dear Donors: Thanks for making the following donations possible. You have
done as the Bible says in the verse above by setting aside a portion for
the strangers and the fatherless children that you see below. By doing so,
you've allowed the love and light of Christ to shine even more brightly here
in Kakinada, India. :) As He always does, God will hold to the above promise
and bless you in all the work of your hands as a result of the compassion
that you've shown to those in need.

Other friends of Portion for Orphans made a donation to those who live at
the Leprosy Colony as well. Below are the pictures. $150 bought a great meal
for 200 of them, 50 Bibles for those that can read, and medicine and bandages
to treat and rewrap their wounds. It's an awful plight they face, but the
beauty that keeps me from being discouraged is that the love of Christ is
being poured out on them in many ways thru your generosity. :)
I look forward to taking them more Bibles sometime, for the children
who were asking for children's Bibles, and for this lady who was left empty-handed.
