I got an email with this title from Focus on the Family. I thought the story interesting enough to share. The following is a reprint of the email that I received:
In the summer of 1999, a twenty-one year old college student named Michael Job was killed in India by fanatical Hindus. His father was well know evangelist and Christian worker, Dr. P.P. Job. The fanatics did not like Dr. Job or his Christian message, so they killed his son.
Dr. Job was devastated–but not broken. He responded to the hatred by starting an orphanage unlike any other in India.
- This orphanage is only for girls…strange enough in a culture that doesn’t value girls.
- And even more unusual–this orphanage is only for girls of persecuted and martyred Christians.
Today the Michael Job Center for Orphan Girls is a dynamic refuge for hundreds of girls of persecuted families from all over the Indian sub-continent.
Each child that comes to The Michael Job Center is a vision of hope for the future–a hope that is born out of sorrow and strengthened with love.
But more children are waiting! Sponsor an orphan girl for just $25 per month and you will prepare the way for more girls of persecuted Christians to be rescued from a life of poverty and hopelessness.
