2016 Year End Update

 

Susan’s Kids now sends monthly support to a total of FIVE ministries. The Good Shepherd Children’s Home in Xela, Guatemala and Love Alive International in Rwanda, Africa are the two additional ministries we started helping financially in 2016. We also made one time donations to the Kennedy Home in Kinston, Team Expansion (for Josh Trueblood and Emilie Cooper), and Grace Point Community Church for help in missions work in Honduras.

Kupendwa Ministries – Uganda, Africa www.Kupendwa.org
2016 has been a year full of amazing joy, growth, change, heartache, and blessings! We have seen lives saved, babies born, families reunited, and relationships restored! We praise the LORD for all that He has done in so many lives! And we could not have done all of this without the faithful support from you, our supporters and donors! Each donation is invaluable and immensely appreciated! To those of you who consistently give on a regular basis, we want to say thank you so very much! This helps us wisely budget our funds and plan for the future!

Diamond Willow Ministries – Ft. Thompson, South Dakota www.d-w-m.org
As the year comes to a close, I am able to look back and see clearly all the ways God has worked in our community through this past year. It is because of your love, support and encouragement that Diamond Willow is able to have such an impact on our community. I live in a place where drugs and suicide are often what people choose as a way out – BUT – we know there is HOPE that can only be found in Jesus Christ! Thank you for allowing me and others on my team to be able to share that hope with the children and families we serve …

Agape Royal Ministries – India www.agaperoyalministries.org
Greetings from Agape Royal Ministries! The Lord has done amazing things throughout 2016. Thank you so much for your partnership in ministry. There are 249 children in care in our 14 child care homes, growing up to become responsible citizens. My wife Elsie and I visited our four homes in Andhra Pradesh and rejoiced in their accomplishments. One of the girls, Jyothsna, a senior in high school, was honored with a cash award for securing the highest marks. She wishes to become a doctor. Her life has been dramatically changed since she joined our home ten years ago.

Love Alive International – Rwanda, Africa www.lovealiveinternational.com
I sincerely thank you for your compassion for others, your love for the Lord, and your generous gifts to Love Alive International Inc. This is my favorite time of year in ministry as children are out of school, and we have 3 months packed with evangelistic activities with children and youth. Thank you immensely for choosing to be a part of this ministry. Your donation will be used in the best possible way to carry forth the ministry God has given us.

~ Laura Yockey

 

Good Shepherd Children’s Home – Xela, Guatemala – www.bchfamily.org/guatemala
The Good Shepherd Children’s Home is Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina’s affiliate orphanage in Xela, Guatemala. BCH established the orphanage in partnership with NC Baptist Men and Woman’s Missionary Union of NC (WMU NC). Full time Missionaries Roger and Vicki Grossman are passionate to see the people of Guatemala come to know Christ’s salvation. They have served in Guatemala for a number of years and oversee both the orphanage and medical clinic. We are excited to have little ones in Guatemala joining the Susan’s Kids family!

 

None of these things could have happened without your help. We thank you for your generosity and obedience to God. Please continue to pray for each and every one of “Susan’s Kids”.

“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will repay him for his deed.” Proverbs 19:17
