I am happy to announce that through the July Children’s Offerings at First Presbyterian Church, the congregation was able to match what our kids raised at VBS for a total of…..$1,626.57! That is about 89,461 rupees!!
Wow- what generosity!
The first $320 will go towards tiling the floor, as planned. The rest will start a fund to construct an art building. Currently the children have no place to be creative; this building would fulfill this need. This additional project costs $1935. With the additional costs we raised, that means there is only $630 left to raise!
I ask that you continue to keep Bowl of Compassion in your prayers as they begin construction and continue to carry out their mission.
I will continue to post photos of the work that is happening in Bodh Gaya as I receive them!
