New homes in India and Cambodia

In May, Sacred Space Church (Worthington, OH) hosted a food truck fundraiser to raise money for the Kalimpong 6 (India) Children's Home. Many people from the community showed up and heard about the good work Sacred Space and Asia's Hope are doing in India.

In 2016, we added a sixth children's home to our ministry in India. The Kalimpong 6 home is sponsored by Sacred Space Church in Worthington, Ohio. Sacred Space is a small, "baby" church plant, and it's encouraging to see a congregation make such a significant commitment so early. The cost to feed, clothe and house these 18 children represents a significant portion of the church's overall budget. Please join us in praying that God will richly bless them for their extravagant faith.

The kids of our Prek Eng 1 (Cambodia) Children's Home loved the Cleveland Cavaliers shirts that their sponsoring church, The Chapel (Akron, OH) brought them on their visit in July. The Chapel also sponsors our Battambang 6 (Cambodia) Children's Home, supports the Asia's Hope Battambang Secondary School, and will be future sponsors of the Battambang 11 and Battambang 12 homes, which will open in 2017 and 2018 respectively.

We also began construction on two new houses in Battambang, Cambodia. The Battambang 11 home is sponsored by The Chapel (Akron, OH), and will be ready to welcome 20 children and live-in staff in Summer 2018. The Chapel also sponsors our Prek Eng 1 and Battambang 6 (Cambodia) homes. They also have underwritten a significant portion of the secondary education costs for the kids living in the 10 homes on our Battambang campus.

The Battambang 13 home is sponsored by the Wesley and Dawn Polsdorfer family (Columbus, OH). Construction on BB13 will be finished Spring 2017, and the new kids will arrive in Summer. The Polsdorfers have dreamed of supporting an orphan home since adopting their daughter Andriana from Russia 18 years ago.

Construction on the Battambang 13 (Cambodia) Children's Home, sponsored by the Wes and Dawn Polsdorfer family (Columbus, OH), is nearing completion. The home will be ready to accept children in Spring 2017. The Polsdorfers will be joining John McCollum and his family in July to meet the new kids, their parents and caretakers.

We're grateful for the generosity of The Chapel and the Polsdorfers. Thanks to their courageous leadership, 40 children who are now living at high risk of sexual and economic exploitation will soon be rescued, and will find a new family at Asia's Hope.
