India: Cory concludes his stay in India with a Bountiful Harvest


I finished my last full day in India at the rice farming village of Siripurum. The village elders gathered around 200 women, with young children, to receive fresh produce and rice. The Children's Hope partners in India distributed hundreds of pounds of rice, potatoes, tomatoes, onions and green peppers. This program helps these families with added nutrition as they hold on for the rice harvest in December.

“There is a great need here and in most of the small rural villages,” Paparao Yeluchuri says. “If God provides the funds, we will go to many more villages.”

It costs over $500 each time Mission to The Nations runs this rice and produce giving project. The several feeding projects I witnessed serving the warm Upma, runs around $30. The joy in the eyes of those who are receiving this food is priceless.
