A BOLD VISION AND A BOLD NEW VISIT!

In 2009, I again accompanied my husband to India to visit our friends there who are building an orphanage for the many homeless children, and then on to Nepal to visit our friends there who provide for women and their children and teach them skills that they can use to support themselves honorably in their society.

 

My mind gained a greater understanding of what it is like to live in India and Nepal...  It is not easy.  My heart grew to add more people to my list of loved ones and I am so excited to be able to return to visit them again.

 

I have included on this site the photos of only those that it is safe to include.  If you would like to contribute to the construction of the Living Hope Orphanage please email me atJoanHall@JoanHall.net

As you know from the India page of 2008, the dream of this children's home and center is that of D C Kaushal who has a huge call on his life to see this center become a reality.  His son Subodh John shares this incredible vision and the 2 of them are seeking to place 50 children inside the dormitories of this 1st floor by April of 2010.  Our desire is to see this dream become a reality.
