Yakov Marineli, the founder and organizer of the ministry in India, provided an accounting of the donations to the sponsors for the past calendar year, which was presented by Valery Tumkevich who summed up the results of the outgoing year. The festive evening was held in a hybrid form: online and offline. Tatyana Malinovskaya was able to join us from South Carolina, USA. Tatyana carries out the Good Hands ministry in America and is an employee of the Indian ministry who helps orphans and widows of India. She expressed her gratitude to the sponsors of Lithuania and shared her testimony. Also, the pastor of the church, Anatoly Dmitruk, shared a word of edification and encouragement. The worship team sang several psalms. The pastor of the church in Pabrade, Artur S., shared his testimony. Their church assists refugees who ended up on the territory of Lithuania. Gintare Kachkovska shared her testimony and sang a psalm with her daughter Melisa. Her family is raising a child who was taken from an orphanage at an early age.

The guests of the sponsor’s evening were from different churches of Lithuania: Pabrade, Shervintai, Nemenchyne, and Lepkalne Str.

Financial service to the orphans of India started in Lithuania 5 years ago, in 2016th. In India, this ministry has been going on for 20 years. Hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world are involved in this ministry. By the aid of sponsors and those who help, wells with a clean source of water get opened, help is provided in closed leper camps, and about 6.5 thousand orphans are kept on complete provision in India. For one child, sponsors allocate 30 euros per month. This is not a large amount for Europe, it is impossible to live on this amount here, but it is a significant amount for India. The evening took place at tables in a cozy atmosphere and tea drinking. In conclusion, there was a prayer for the sponsors and staff of the Indian ministry.

Those who wish to join this ministry and support the orphans of India, please contact Valery Tumkevich as the one in charge of this mission in Lithuania. He can be contacted by phone +37062071753 or by email: tumkevich@gmail.com.
