The following is a wonderful true story....I hope you all enjoy it, too.


Each year, many lives are transformed through the outreach of Orphans Faith Home's annual "Christmas for Street Children" program. A boy we shall call Kamal was the leader of a group of five young boys living together on the streets of a small town in India. A true orphan, Kamal did not even know who his parents or relatives were. One recent Christmas Day, while out on the streets, he heard music coming through a public address system somewhere. As he approached the source of the music, he could hear that the sound was that of people singing from a nearby church. Then Kamal heard an invitation for all the children on the street to come in to hear a story about someone named Jesus and to enjoy a party where they would receive food, clothes and a toy. With the promise of food for the day, Kamal went into the church. He sat down and chatted with the other street kids who had also been drawn there. Shortly thereafter, Pastor Sundaram related how this day was the birthday of Jesus, who loved each one of them. When he heard the pastor's words, Kamal was shocked and began to cry.

After the story was over, the church held the party. The kids played games together, and gratefully received their promised food, clothing and toys, all provided through the generosity of India Partners' supporters. Eventually the party came to a close and the other children left the church. But Kamal stayed. Pastor Sundaram had noticed Kamal's tears. Now he asked the boy why he had been crying. Kamal replied that earlier that very day, when he had asked someone for food, he had been terribly beaten. Kamal embraced and kissed the pastor's legs and said that he wanted to stay and live with the pastor.

Orphans Faith Home offered to take Kamal into the orphanage, but Pastor Sundaram and his family volunteered to keep the lad in their own home. To this day, Kamal has been under the watchful care of this kind pastor and his wife. Thriving under the nurture of godly people like Pastor Sundaram, Kamal is off the streets and attending school. Through the "Christmas for Street Children" program, Kamal's life has been changed. He has hope for his future!
