Over our many years of ministry, we have worked with hundreds of children who need to know the Father’s heart so they can become true sons and daughters of His. We know that part of our mandate as believers is to care for the widows and orphans, so we are doing just that. In July 2009, Frontline established its first children’s home in Rajahmundry, India. The Frontline Ministries International Children’s Home currently houses twenty-two children from several villages outside Rajahmundry.
We are partnering with Pastor Deva (da-wa) and Suneetha of Emmanuel Christian Church in Rajahmundry as they operate the children’s home. They are the onsite “mama” and “papa”. FMI provides the children’s basic needs of clothing, food, housing, and schooling tuition. In addition to providing for the children’s basic needs, the children’s home also ministers to the children’s spiritual needs.
Some come from very abusive homes, while others come from financially destitute families unable to properly care for the children. Despite the children’s pasts, our Father in heaven has a great future for them. Our heart is not to just feed and clothe them, but to teach them about our wonderful Heavenly Father each one can know on a deeply intimate level. He is a good God and we know that He compassionately cares for each of the twelve children.
We also know that He can and will meet every emotional need in every child’s heart. We love them all dearly and we are very excited to see each one develop into a laid-down lover of Jesus.
During the past year, construction was completed for the new sleeping/eating quarters for our children. In December 2009, Christmas presents were sent to the children and coats were purchased for them, as well. Since they’ve had so little their whole lives, even the smallest gifts are so exciting to them and they are very appreciative of everything FMI provides for them.
Early in 2010, a team of six traveled to the children’s home. They continued to provide for the children’s basic necessities and were able to spiritually invest in each child, as well. They had a great time getting to know the children individually and also spent time ministering to a variety of groups by partnering with Pastor Deva and Suneetha. India is a destitute country financially, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. FMI knows the great need and plans on taking in as many children as God gives us. FMI is the sole provider for the children.

We have been so blessed to step into this new adventure of establishing a children’s home. The children now have a safe home with plenty of food, and the amazing opportunity to know Papa, receive His love, and grow into strong men and women of God who will wholeheartedly serve Him throughout their lives.
