Pastor Abedini Gets 8 Years Prison Sentence
Yesterday, January 27, we received word that Pastor Saeed Abedini was given an eight year prison sentence in the notorious political Evin Prison. He has been charged with planting house churches "that are intended to undermine Iran's national security".
This verdict is a terrible blow to his wife Naghmeh who is devastated.
"With today's development I am devastated for my husband and my family" she said. "We must now pursue every effort, turn every rock, and not stop until Saeed is safely on American soil".
Please continue to pray for him, his wife Naghmeh and his a 6-yr-old daughter and 4-yr-old son who need their daddy home in Idaho.
God bless you for your faithfulness.
Together in His Ministry,
Paul H. Popov

The Gift of a Cow
Name of the Beneficiary: Mrs. Pramila
Name of Village: Anuppalli, Chittoor District, Andhra Pradesh.
Mrs. Pramila is 43 years old and is married. They have four daughters and no sons. She works as cook and earns meager salary. She has to take care of her father besides her four girls. Her mother passed away and her father depends on the support of Pramila.
Pramila is unable to meet the family needs and she is worried much about the future of her four daughters.
The cow will be taken care of both Pramila and her father in the village Anuppalli. The cow will be insured fully and the health of the cow taken care of by the Vet coming from the nearby town. The insurance of the cow is most beneficial since the insurance company will replace the cow in the event of snake bite or the cow grazing poisonous grass/leaves etc.,
Both Pramila and her father are very happy and are grateful for the assistance. Since the milk is sold at a high price (Rs. 18 to 20 per litre), the cow which will give birth in the next three months will bring good income to the family and the milk yield is expected at 8 to 10 liters a day.
Pramila and her father Solomon convey their gratitude and thanks for the help given to them.
Name of the Beneficiary: Mrs. Kanthamani
Name of the Village: Perakkoor, Chittoor District.
Mrs. Kanthamani is 70 years old and her husband passed away. She could not live at her husband's home but had to move to her native place called Moranthangal which is in Tamilnadu. She beget 13 children and six of them passed away. None among the four daughers and three sons supports her. All of them are very poor and the last son who remained unmarried is an alcoholic. As Mrs. Kanthamani is old but stable, strong and healthy needed some help to support herself and her unmarried son.
The cow means so much to Kanthamani and she is able to take good care of the cow. The cow that is bought is healthy and will give birth to a calf in the next two months or so. She is expecting 10 litres of milk a day which she can sell to the dairy at a good price of Rs. 20 per litre. The cow will be insured and the Vet will take care of the health of the cow.
The social worker of the South Asia Council for Community and Children in Crisis will visit the cow beneficiaries from time to time to give guidance to raise the cow. In the next three years it is expected that the mother cow will beget two more which can be sold and this would be additional income to Mrs. Kanthamani.
She can live at peace and even support her very poor married daughters. She expresses her joy and conveys her gratitude for the help given.

Pictures from India - Past Trips
We would like to invite you to join us as we prepare to return to India in 2012.
We look forward to visiting the various homes throughout
Southern India which are sponsored by SAC CCC.
We have a need for doctors, nurses, dentist, and other medial professionals who wish to travel to India with us to help in the hospital.
We have need for social worker who is involved in various fields of service, counselor to aid victim and their families.
We are open to having Christian worker travel with us to share their testimonies and we just need people to travel with us to help encourage these untouchable children.
Our trips are usually ten days; however you are welcome to stay even longer if you choose. Perhaps you have always felt the desire to do a missionary trip, but have just never made to commitment and this could very well be the right time for you.
Call or email us and let's discuss this possibility of you making this trip.
Sam's Kids Report 2011
There are many of our sponsors for the Sam's Kids project in Bangalore, India who has slowly discontinued their contributions. We understand your economic condition is perhaps different from the time when the original commitment was made. However, we would like to encourage you to prayerfully consider rethinking a regular offering in behalf of the child whom you agreed to become a sponsor.
As we have made several trips to our various homes where our children live throughout South Central India we have discovered a group of loving children who need your help. Perhaps you are not able to contribute $35.00 per month, but would you prayerfully consider making a sacrificial gift. I can assure you your gift will help to change the life of some child. There are many children who have lost both their parents to the awful disease of Aids or HIV leaving them without any place to go or anyone to support them.
We are presently trying to determine if we are going to be able to make our August trip to India, the needs are so great in our homes. We wish to be a good servant of our funds which the Lord provides, join us in prayer.
The staff of SAC-CCC in India is filling a very large need in these children's lives; we need your help immediately.

God may have already provided the gifts he wants you to give.
In the 11th Chapter of Exodus the children of Israel were instructed by God to borrow the Egyptians jewels of silver and gold.
In the 35th Chapter of Exodus the children of Israel hearts were stirred and they brought their offering for the work of the tabernacle. With a willing heart both men and women brought bracelets, earrings, rings, and all jewels of gold.
Perhaps God has appointed a tabernacle size project for you to do, and your question is how are we going to be able to pay for it?
