Surachha, age 10
Surachha was born in a very remote village where her parents worked as laborers. Tragically, her father was walking home from work one night and fell off a cliff and
died. After her husband died, Surachha’s mother struggled to feed and educate her children. She was introduced to Jesus three years after her husband’s death. It was through the pastor who led her to Christ that she heard of House of Living Stone (HoLS). Surachha came home to HoLS in October 2010. Today, Surachha is a confident and opinionated girl who has many friends. She loves helping her house mother with chores. When she grows up she wants to help needy children.

Gaubir, age 10
At the age of two, Gaubir’s mother left the family to marry another man and shortly after, his father disappeared to marry another woman. Their whereabouts are still
unknown. Gaubir and his two siblings were taken in by some relatives, but they were mistreated and Gaubir became malnourished. Another aunt heard about their situation and came to bring them to her home; but with nine people living in a small house, and with a very small income coming in, this situation did not work. Gaubir’s aunt learned of House of New Life (HoNL) from her pastor and sought placement of Gaubir with the family. He came home to HoNL in 2012 at the age of five.
Today, Gaubir is the most talkative and outgoing of his siblings at HoNL and his house parents say that he cannot sit still! He is full of life and extremely outgoing. He makes friends with everyone he meets. One of Gaubir’s favorite pastimes is coming up with creative stories and then sharing them with his family. Join us in encouraging this bright little boy to bring joy and life to everyone he meets.

Ishwor, age 9
Ishwor was four years old when he was welcomed home to House of New Life (HoNL) in 2012. Shortly after Ishwor was born, his father died from alcohol
poisoning leaving a wife, three children, and a huge debt. Ishwor’s mother moved to the city to work to pay off the debt and provide for her three children. She worked very hard, but when she was at work there was no one at home to care for her children. She barely earned enough to buy them food and was unable to send any of them to school. When she learned about the Hope’s Promise’s homes in Nepal, she sought the help of the Nepali Hope’s Promise staff.
Today, Ishwor is the youngest and definitely the smallest of his siblings, but he has no problem keeping up with them—especially playing soccer! He is a joyful boy who has a heart of gold and is always looking for opportunities to help around the house. He is constantly dancing and his overflowing joy is contagious among his siblings and house parents. Join us in cultivating Ishwor’s passion and joy so that everyone he meets sees Jesus.
