Dear Supporters,

At the end of June, we as a ministry experienced a “death of a vision.” We need to connect with another Christian team that can help us design and build the India campus. Due to Tech Serve’s previous commitments and other information that they shared with us, they are unable to help us at this time. We want to go to India during the last two weeks of December, 2006 or early January, 2007. This time frame is critical for two reasons: it does not rain in Andhra Pradesh (where GEM is building) from November to March; it is winter in India at this time and thus the daily Fahrenheit temperature is in the high 60’s and 70’s.

I have contacted a Christian brother in Indiana, who personally knows Joseph Murala, founder of GEM, who is currently praying about the commitment of helping us build in India. He is a contractor and has various Christian contacts who are skilled in building the India campus. He has other commitments and of course wants to have God’s leading in the decision. If the good Lord leads him to help us, it will be under a similar arrangement as we had with Tech Serve. A team will be formed to volunteer their time to build the campus in India. Each person who goes on the team will finance his or her travel, housing, and food expenses. The responsibility of GEM is to pay for all of the construction costs.

I have another organization that can be approached if the Indiana team is also unable to help us at this time. The Southern Baptist Conference sends teams to other parts of the world to help Christian ministries. This is our next place of enquiry, if needed.

Due to the length of this up-date, you will need to patiently wait until August to enjoy the next testimony of one of our orphans. May God continue to bless each of you who are a part of the GEM team.

Desiring that Jesus Christ will work in and through the GEM board of directors,

Bernie Wold
President of Global Evangelical Ministries
