The Philip and Timothy Stains Memorial Children’s Home
The Philip and Timothy Stains Memorial Children’s Home provides food, shelter, clothing, and education to 124 orphans and half-orphans in four homes in South India. David Gnaniah, the founder-director, said: “Most of these children lost their parents because of sickness or domestic violence.” In the last few years, The Home has been expanded into a school, primarily for tribal children. Emphasis has been on solid education for the poor children there. Karen Jesse has taught English there as a missionary. Pastor Sam and Shanti have visited The Home and The School several times through Volunteer-in-Mission Teams. Many of our church members have sponsored the children. FUMCWA has been a partner in mission with The Home and The School. Your support continues to strengthen such global missions.
