Welcome to Nehemiah Children Home!

Greetings from Director (November 10, 2015): 

Last month on October, First Baptist Church of Temple City invited me to participate in their first Missions conference. Unfortunately I was too sick to attend the conference, so my wife Shitoni drove down to Temple City with our two children. She was able to share the mission and the work of Nehemiah Children’s Home to all the people at the church. Shitoni was happy to see many familiar faces that we had not seen in such a long time.

Our main means of supporting the children of NCH and giving them a better future is by paying for their education. The children study at one of two private schools because the Indian government does not provide teachers to the public schools.

The names of the graduating students are:
1. Mayami (boy)
2. Somichan (boy)
3. Okpei (boy) and
4. Mathanphy (girl)

They all stood second division/ class in their final exams. Since they all are so very good in their studies, all of them have received a sponsorship for their higher education. We are very proud of them and their accomplishments.

We cannot support additional children, unfortunately. Because we have limited support, we do not want to promise to more needy children that we can add them and support their education as well. I hope that you will pray for the need in Manipur that we cannot meet. I also ask that you pray for these four young people as they start a new future.

The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor. Proverbs 22:9

Getting to know Nehemiah Children's Home

The Nehemiah Children Home is a start-up, religious based orphanage in in Ukhrul, Manipur (India) in a campus encompassing about 8 acres of land. This non-profit organization is envisioned to provide a home for hundreds of
orphans in the area.

The children have become orphans as the result of various tragedies. Rebellion and insurgency in and around Manipur have resulted in death to many of their parents. The people suffer an extreme level of poverty and receive little health care. Tuberculosis, malaria, cancer, AIDS, pneumonia and other treatable diseases are common but regularly go untreated, frequently resulting in death. Malnutrition is common
resulting in shortened lives.

Some have lost both parents, some have lost one parent with the surviving parent unable to support them, and some have parents who are either disabled or unable to care for them. Since there are many more (orphanage) applicants than spaces available, we must set priorities. The children with the greatest need have been and will continue to be admitted first.

... visit and help and care for the orphans and widows in their affliction and need. James 1:27
