You really don’t hear much about orphanages anymore today. At least not in this country.
Caring for orphans has pretty much been relegated to, and taken over by, government programs. But it really is the church’s responsibility.
religion pure and undefiled with the God and Father is this, to look after orphans and widows in their tribulation — unspotted to keep himself from the world. James 1:27 YLT
Well, here is a ground floor opportunity to be able to take part in raising up a brand new, genuine orphanage in Pune in Maharashtra, India. In this part of the world there are many orphans and they do not have government programs to help them all. Many are forced to resort to begging for their daily survival.
Just look at these pictures …
It will first start out as a girl’s orphanage until such time the Lord provides male staff for boys as well.
The driving force behind this endeavor is a young lady by the name of Christina whose picture is at the top of this article.
Christina is an educator by profession and has been traveling with her team to preach and evangelize in the midst of Hindus, Muslims, Jains and many other people who don’t know Jesus.
In her culture, her parents want her to get married so that she will be taken care of. But she has told them that she is married to Jesus and wants to serve Him with her life.
She received a vision to start an orphanage. As an educator she can teach these children and raise them in the love of Jesus. She is raising a team to be able to staff the orphanage with round the clock care.
Since children are very near to Jesus’ heart, especially orphans, He is already opening doors to make this happen.
But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:14
Proof is the property you see in the above pictures. The rent for this building is 15,000 Rupees a month which is about $189 US dollars a month and a real bargain by our standards. Of course there will be other needs as well such as utilities, food and personal care items.
This is a ground floor opportunity to invest in the kingdom by investing in these children’s lives. Would you please pray for this project and if you would like to participate in this endeavor, all donations will be forwarded in full to Christina by using this link for PayPal, Zelle or Venmo.
Or you can send your gift to her directly using one of these 2 options:
- PayPal – Send to http://PayPal.Me/christina9719
- Transferwise – Has the cheapest international exchange rates and the fastest transfer. You can use this referral link to setup your free account. Then when you are ready to give simply add Christina as a recipient using her email firstname.lastname@example.org or this direct link.
Your gift in any amount will be multiplied many times over in this part of the world. When you invest one dollar, it will be like you are investing ten dollars. Where else will you receive such a return on your money?
Just indicate it is for Lazarus House. You can make a one time donation or a monthly recurring donation to support the orphanage as part of your regular giving. Once Lazarus House is established you will also be able to support a child directly with your monthly gifts and receive pictures and updates of their progress.
Jesus has a special spot in His heart for the fatherless.
Here is Christina in her own words:
[Forwarded from Christina Lazarus Binekar]
Thank you dear Prayer Partner’s and supporters, Your support towards My God given mission means a lot to me,
I really want to thank God for the desires he has given to me to serve him to advance his Kingdom here on Earth.
There are many stories to share I would love to share one,
I was on a mission trip, To my surprise I encountered a street beggar who really had emotional trauma and a poor self image of himself. I couldn’t stop just talking to him. He didn’t respond to me. I still went to him and asked if he was okay?
He responded to me in my mother tongue, wow this surprised me where in that part no one knew this language really, He felt comfortable talking to me then on, he responded in another language to me, which was to my surprise again it was English this time, seeing a beggar speaking English stood me. I went on asking him what happened to him and why is he in this condition? and his right hand was even injured badly.
He told me his stories and even said about how he was been betrayed by his own family members and was chased out of his own house
And he ran from his hometown.
I felt sorry for him
Everyday I used to visit him and say Hi and even Pray for him and I was so excited every time I saw him and even to talk to him was a really good experience, this happened for two week with my team. I gave him food and clothes too.
Then we had to go to the Ministry out of that town. I didn’t see him for a while then on. After coming back I heard some bad news as it was cold and rainy. He went to be with the Lord.
People said no one was there to take care of him in that time, His dead moved me and I thank God in that beggars life I was a medium where I prayed for him cloth him and made him believe that Jesus is the way to Life and he did accept him as his saviour before he went to be with the Lord and I do believe that in that hour of dead he must have thought of his saviour for help and his Hope for Life.
I thank God that he uses us to advance his kingdom here on earth even if it’s a small act he does mysteries we don’t understand.
I thank God For his Life and that he could find his saviour before he could die. Praise God!
With this move that happened I really wanted to stop there. I really wanted start up something to help other people who are Homeless and orphans.
So far God’s been conforming me to pioneer an orphanage and even to help the kids with medical help and with their education.
I want to start up something radical and move for God in times as such.
I want to start a project called THE LAZARUS HOME.
Where I want to start an orphanage for the needy and homeless kids where I can give them a stay and help them medically and give the needed education for them to be a good citizen.
This is crazy how everything started building up in my thought and then into faith and now into action.
I believe If God has put this on my heart he will take it to the completion and do much more than think or imagine. According to his power in us its more than enough, Amen!
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Ephesians 3:29
THE LAZARUS HOME is for the children who has no background and hope for their future and it’s something to remind me of this in the Bible where Lazarus was a Poor man who was ignored by the rich king and in the end Lazarus was remembered by God and was in Heaven instead and king was In the hell”
There are many people who are ignored in their lives even in their needs to be a helping hand to them to experience Heaven on earth I and want to place them in the LAZARUS HOME. Who are really ignored my the Society.
Because Our Generosity is someone’s Miracle, Amen!
To see this vision move forward I really need your prayer support and generous help for all the provisions to start up from zero to somewhere.
I believe Greater things he will do that believes in the Lord’
Continue to Pray for me and this Vision and God will take it into completion.
I also want to invite you to be a part of this Vision for LAZARUS HOME PROJECT, if you are in India. Or invite someone who has the same vision for this mission.
Please feel free to share this Project with the rest of your family members and friends and church communities would be really encouraged and loved. If you can give me any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you before putting into action this big faith move.
I need a lot of encouragement and prayer support plus provision with financial help. If God is leading you to be in this part for a big move let’s not waste time and move ahead for advancing the kingdom here on earth just with your regular encouragement with prayer support and even financial support. I am ready for this move of faith, and see the exciting awaited journey happening into action.. keep praying and stand with me in this journey of generosity and even faith move to happen.
And I really want to Thank you Grandpa Frank again for really believing in me that I can do this and your time of prayer and encouragement swell.
Love you all so much and Blessings to you all!
PS: Christina affectionately calls me Grandpa and she is my granddaughter not by blood but in the faith of the Lord.
Here is the link to help get Lazarus House off the ground. Or use one of the options above. Just think how you will have had a part for all of eternity in raising up this new orphanage to help these children to be raised for the glory of the Lord. Your reward will be receiving a big squeeze hug around your neck when you finally see them in heaven.
