Rajpur Foster Parents ProjectFive families plus our GSC congregation support students in Rajpur India. Our monthly Birthday Box contributions help to support our congregational foster child, Ashish SinghWe all like to celebrate birthdays. At Good Shepherd we celebrate birthdays a little differently. On the last Sunday service of the month the congregation is asked who has had a birthday that month. These people stand at the front of the church; say their name, their day of birth, and where they were born. In this way we get to know each other. More importantly, instead of getting a present, the birthday people give money to thank God for being born and these funds go to our foster child in India, Ashish. at the Moravian Institute in Rajpur. Ashish was born in Shimla, India. He has a twin brother and an older sister. The children and their mother live at their grandparents home as their father is not around. Their mother is a “daily wage labourer” which doesn’t provide for the needs of the children.We feel blessed to be a blessing to this family!
The Moravian Institute was established in 1963 by Br Eliyah Phunthsog whilst he was undertaking the revision of the New Testament in Tibetan for the Bible Society of India in Dehra Dun district. During this time he met Tibetan refugees who had just fled from their homeland across the Himalayas. What has blossomed over the years has become The Moravian Institute involving a school, a hostel and a vocational training program. (Click on photo for more)
