Kareena's Story

This week’s email from Pastor Koshy in Delhi brought the very sad news that one of Cry of India’s sponsored children has passed away. Kareena Ekka, a little 8-year-old girl who attended Joy Academy in the slums of Delhi was still in school until two days before her sudden illness and death. All attempts by doctors were not able to save her life.

Yet even in the sadness Pastor Koshy shared, “Kareena was the only child of the family and through her the whole family was touched by God. Because of Joy Academy, the parents started to attend the church. Both the mother and father of Kareena got saved and I baptized both of them a few months back and they are strong in the Lord. Thank you so much for supporting Joy Academy as it is another God story of how the school was used to bring a whole family to the Lord.”

Kareena was just one little 8-year-old girl whose Cry of India sponsors made it possible for her to attend school. Her profile information reads only that she was ”shy” and she was “poor”. But in the “God-story” of her short life, she made an eternal difference for her whole family. Please pray with us for her family and the church at Joy Academy in their time of grief! And thank you to every Cry of India sponsor! You are making a difference in India, “One child at a time!”
