Help us to finish the Brinkley Memorial Home for Orphans and Widows in Tanuku, India.

In 1968 our father, Raymond Brinkley, made his inaugural mission trip to many towns and villages of Anhdra Pradesh. There he found lepers, orphans and the extremely poor that were open to the gospel message of Jesus Christ. He felt called to do this work and created Gospel Partners to help fulfill his mission. Since that time the Brinkley family, along with a few sponsors, have financially supported these Christian ministries in Tanuku. Today, Raymond’s children and grandchildren carry on his mission work and have been able to facilitate its growth.

Gospel Partners created Brinkley Memorial School to give the children of our brothers/sisters in Christ who have leprosy (Hanson's Disease) an education. We now have 88 children of lepers, 48 street children and our 37 orphaned children. The children receive 2 meals a day 6 day per week, uniforms, blankets and an education. If not for this school these children would never be educated as they are not allowed in regular schools. Currently the orphans are living in the school building but the Indian government is now requiring Gospel Partners to build a facility seperate from the school to house the children. Without the money to finish the project these children will possibly end up back on the street and unfortunately the government has given us a tight timeframe to finish the building.  We have purchased the land and construction has started but we need this funding to completed the project.  This $45,000 will finish the building and will also supply all of the furnishing.

Update 11/14/12:

Wall work for 2nd story of Brinkley Memorial Childrens Home has been started. Windows are installed. Builder hopes to have all brick work completed by end of this week. Then they want to do plastering inside. The children are very excited about getting a home separate from the church building. We still need $20,000 to finish this building we pray you will consider helping Gospel Partner complete this safe home for our 37 orphan children and 12 widows.
