It has been quite a while since we published a blog.
Several reasons were due to this:
Working here is
difficult and not without risk, sometimes making it
necessary to publish less.
Next to that, we have seen that blogs and publications
on Facebook among other activities did not bring the
results we hoped and prayed for.
All this did not mean that the work as a whole was halted
but it sure slowed it down.
For us, more reason to pray things over and to see how the Lord
was leading us in what we do and could do further.
The situation in the world at time is such that the need in
the two projects, Tenali and Bhimavaram, is undiminished.
This, for us, is reason to reach out to those in need even
harder and to share the things we have on our hearts and are
so seriously needed with you.

In my previous blog I mentioned Matthew 9:37 in which the Lord is saying that the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.
There is an abundance in harvest waiting here. The so many children, teens and adults who need us and who we try to help.
And in our case we are blessed with a fantastic team of workers, volunteers that give all their time and energy and even looking at severe persecution put their lives on the line to help.

“Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.”
As promised, time for a new blog.
On Facebook I already wrote that a lot is happening here in Tenali and
it is. We are on the crossroads of an enormous breakthrough in expanding
our Ministry here. The harvest here is absolutely plentiful!!!
We serve in this large slum with about 7000 people and in previous
blogs and on our Facebook page, I already told you about the poverty
and in fact inhuman circumstances under which people, men, women and children have to live.
A situation where young children and in special girls in general always suffer the most.

“Whoever shuts their ears to the cry of the poor,
will also cry out and not be answered”
Being here in Tenali is an ongoing very humbling experience.
Seeing the need and the desolation of the people here, you
cannot do anything else than realize how blessed we are
and how much we consider as natural in the West.
And we really stand at awe, when we see how much of an impact
we are already starting to make in this huge slum, by placing
clean water pumps, feeding the so many children, and offering
young girls and single mothers the opportunity for a future by
learning to sew and having their own sewing machine, so they can
make a living.

Today was a day of great celebration again in the Tenali slum, we together with our brother Ps. Abraham may work in.
Can you imagine that you have no water in your house? No tap, that just with the twist of your hand spills out clean and cool drinking water for as long as you want?
No shower, no flushing toilet.

Time for an update again about what is going on in Tenali and Bhimavaram, Andhra Pradesh, India, where I am staying for about two weeks now.
