Indian Community Resource Center

While I was in India in 2012, I visited a school in the Himalayan mountains. It was a small Christian English school operated by a caring pastor named Balabir and his wife Rekha. Having never met me before, they invited me into their home and taught me about their community for 2 weeks.

Since leaving, I have continued to stay good friends with this family.  They have begun building a resource center for their community.  This will serve as a school, church and community center for them to minister to the valley.

In the last few months, they have made much progress with the construction of the building, but they are at the end of their current resources. 

I am trying to raise money for them to be able to complete the school.  Please help me reach this goal, so they can begin serving their community.

For more information about Balabir's ministry, community and family, please go to their website.  Click on "news" to see his blog postings and updates.
