Operation Care: Showing Christ to Kids in India

Love. Compassion. Faithfulness even when others walk away. Eternal life. Kids in India desperately need Jesus and what He provides, especially kids like those living at a prison in southern India because their mothers are in jail, or like those living in a Christian academy in Manipur whose families can’t afford to take care of them.

These “homes” could be considered places of desperation, but they have become windows of opportunity! In them people show Jesus’ love to kids and tell them about Him. There’s slim chance these children will hear about Jesus anywhere else; only a handful of people in their cities are Christians. But without our help, these windows of opportunity may close.  

Your VBS can make a difference through Operation Care! For $7, a child can have a Bible to learn about Jesus and His love. A gift of $12 could provide a hungry boy or girl with a box of food. For $17, a child will have a blanket. And for $50, a child can have a mattress and a warm place to sleep!

By giving to Operation Care, you will be part of showing Christ to kids in India. You’ll help them see He is worth trusting and following. And kids in your VBS will love getting involved and showing how much they care. Prayerfully consider making Operation Care your VBS missions project.
