The Girls and boys at the Promised Land are saying…
“My religious sect school teacher sometimes asks me to pray during school. One day, the teacher asked me to pray for rain. So on the way home from school I prayed that it would rain and that same day it rained. When I got to school the next day the teacher said to me “ Your God is the true God because he answered your prayer!” ~ Eli Raj
“When I grow up, I want to be a pastor and go into the ministry so that I can share the Gospel with many people.”
“I want to do ministry, and serve God among people with leprosy.”
“Whatever I prayed God has answered my prayers. Jesus is always hearing my prayers and people here are giving me love and comfort here”.
“I used to fight with other kids in my colony, but now Jesus has given me peace and I no longer want to fight with others. I like to get along with everyone.” ~ Kokila

A Letter to the Sponsors from boys who live at the Promised Land Home.
Dear Mom and Dad,
We are praying everyday for you and we know that you are praying for us. Because of you we are able to live here, and God will surely bless you because you are helping us. We normally wake up at five o'clock in the morning and we pray for you at least 30 minutes. They are taking care of us really good here and we are studying really good here as well. In the evening we also have tutoring for our school lessons, and are in the habit of studying more. We also have really good food here each day. When we go to school we feel like we want to share the gospel, but sometimes we get mocked when we do and so we pray for them. We know that Jesus loves everyone just like He loves us. He was born into this world for every person and He will help us in our time of need. He died on the cross for our sins.
Before we came here we did not have anything, and many of us had to beg. Before we came here we had never heard about Jesus before. But here at this home, we have all accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior. After we came here we feel wisdom and we are getting good grades at school.
We never imagined that we could ever have this good kind of life before. We never celebrated a birthday before, but now we do. We never had joy in our lives before—we didn’t even know what joy was; but now we are feeling joy here. We never traveled by a van to get to school either, so we pray to the Lord to get good marks at school. We all feel like a family here. We love the playground that we got this year and the staff workers are taking good care of us. Pastor Britto is also coming here and takes good care of us. We like everyone here.From your beloved sons at the Promised Land

A Letter to the Sponsors from girls who live at the Promised Land Home.
Dear Mom and Dad,
We are praying every day for you. We are studying good here. Because of our family situations before we came here, we could not study because we had to work. But now that we came here we are getting good grades. Before coming here, some of us had heard about Jesus but did not have a personal relationship with him. We love to stay here because we came to know Jesus here and we are praying everyday. The staff are taking good care of us and they are helping with all of our needs. We are studying good at our school, and the teachers are very happy about us.
They appreciate us because we finish our homework first and complete everything correctly. On tests we care about getting the best marks in our class, and many times we share the gospel to our friends and many receive the Lord. Even our teachers notice that we are getting good food to eat and that we are staying in a good place. The principle of our school even came to visit our home here and was very impressed. We also are getting good tutoring here after school.
The staff here talk to us like they are our mom and dad, but also like they are our friend. We feel so close to the staff here. We feel so happy to get gifts of our own because before our families did not care about us. But here we are so happy that we are cared about. We want to be witnesses to the Lord. We are always thinking of Jesus and thanking Him because we have come to the right place. We are so glad to have so much joy and love here. We would never want to miss this. We are feeling your love so much. We love every one here because everyone is our friend. We all feel like a family here. We are praying every day, and we like to stay here.
