A Life Rewritten By Love
Daily beatings by his drunken father were the reality of Karthic’s early life. When he was five years old his father attempted to murder his mother and was sent to prison. For the next several years, she struggled to care for her three children, and there were many days with no food for them to eat. At age seven, Karthic took desperate action to help his younger brother and sister survive. He began stealing food and money to meet their needs. Soon, the police became involved, and he found himself terrified and in trouble. Ravanamma, a neighbor who attends the Sion Assembly Church reached out to the family and before long, Karthic and his siblings moved to SAC’s Children’s Home.
There they are loved, well-fed, and cared for daily. Karthic is now a well-mannered 14-year-old who does well in school, loves God, and desires to one day be a Pastor. He is also very artistic and enjoys painting. His life story has truly been rewritten through the loving actions of SAC Ministries and their supporters who make their ministry possible.
In 2021, the Indian government notified Pastor Rajendra that their dormitory had to be modified to meet new guidelines. Thankfully, the ministry owned property nearby and began plans for a new boy’s dormitory. The new facility will meet all regulations and allow SAC to serve more children in the future. Construction is almost complete. This new dorm will house up to 35 boys with the new space essentially doubling their overall capacity.
We are thankful for the gifts that have made this project possible so that even more children like Karthic can experience a life story that’s rewritten by love.
