You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
John 15:16 (NIV)
Sheetal and her husband lived in Sangam Vihar, one of the largest slums in India’s capital of Delhi, because she had been unemployed for an extended period. After graduating from the tailoring school at the Delhi Lighthouse Center, Sheetal secured a job as a tailor, became an instructor at the tailoring school, and was able to move out of the slum. But her new jobs were a two mile walk from her home. We rejoice with Sheetal that she has recently been hired as a tailoring instructor for a school near her home.
- With great thanks, that God brought Sheetal out of her despair and that she will continue to bear lasting fruit in her new position as a tailoring instructor, becoming an effective mentor of her trade and her Christian faith.
- For the graduates of the ServeNow tailoring programs to be successful in their new careers, allowing them to improve their living conditions, avoid human trafficking, and increase the quality of life for their families.
- For the staff and volunteers of the Delhi Lighthouse Center, as they meet the needs of the least and the lost in the surrounding slums.
