Love in Action (LIA), an orphanage in Bangalore India, is operated by Nancy Anthony and supported by HIM. LIA currently cares for 25 children ranging in age from 3 to 19. The children are provided with a safe and loving environment, physical and medical needs, school and Christian education. Love In Action was started by Nancy’s parents, Enoch and Carunia, and has been in operation for 15 years. Her mom, Carunia, was an orphan and always dreamed of starting an orphanage to help the poor children. Since her mom’s passing seven years ago, Nancy has taken the responsibility of running the school and taking care of the day-to-day needs of the children. The daily regimen for the children includes Bible study, songs, school and chores. They are up early before school to recite scripture, have devotion and sing songs. A vegetable garden and a children’s choir have been started and many of them are learning to play musical instruments. With the help of H.I.M. and generous donors, a roof project has been started before the rainy season. The new roof will provide a dinning and study area for the children. There is still work to be done but progress is underway. The Love In Action home is under constant threats from Hindu neighbors and the children frequently face persecution at school. Some of the children have special medical needs to address. As operating costs and medical bills continue to grow, they need prayer and financial support now more than ever.
