8 Clean Water Wells built in India which help an estimated 30,000 people. These clean water wells have brought hope to thousands of Indians living in villages where they had little or no access to clean water. They have helped many children to remain healthy and have blessed mothers who have not had to walk so far each day to get water.
89 people adventure on 5 different GPartner Trips. Our teams were blessed to share and show God's love in Haiti and in India.

Food, Medical Care and Education provided to over 200 Slum Children in Haiti. Each day in Haiti our GPPD Associate would go into the ravine to provide the young children and mothers a nutritional meal so that these children will grow strong and healthy.

Warm Clothes and Food provided for Romani Children in Slovakia. The winter months in Slovakia are bitter cold. Most of the Romani children do not have proper clothes to wear nor food to eat. Many children are sick during these months because of the cold weather, improper clothing and lack of nutrition. The food and clothes help children to remain healthy so they did not miss school.
20 women in India begin a small sewing business. Teams of ladies from the US headed to India to teach women in poverty and older orphan girls how to sew and basic small business skills.

Refugees were provided with education in Jordan, refugees are not allowed to attend school so all of the education provided greatly helps them to have a brighter future, especially as their families are trying to relocate to the West.
The Jordan Refugee Community Center comes closer to purchasing. The building we have been renting for years will soon be ours. Please pray for further renovations on the building.
Syrian Refugees receive vital help. We were able to provide refrigerators and heaters for people who fled to Jordan, leaving everything behind. We also were able to share with them about the true hope that can transform their lives.
From nebulizers for needy orphan children in Haiti, to shoes for bare children's feet, to Bibles in the hands of a seeking refuges in Jordan. Only heaven will tell of the marvelous things He has done through and in obedient hearts this year. Thank you again for partnering with us in 2012 to impact the lives of people around the world. We can't wait to see all that God has in store for 2013!
