Prayer and Praise - Baptist Children's Home


Houseparents:  Please join us in prayer for couples to serve as houseparents.  We especially need a couple to serve as relief houseparents.

Pray for safety for Bill and Kathy Brittain as they travel sharing the ministry of BCH with churches across several states.

  • Praise: warmer weather to get outside and let the children play.

  • Pray: safety in traveling in upcoming trip to Creation Museum.

Mt. Pleasant (MI):

  • Pray: children who are readying themselves for home visits this summer.

 Witmar (MI):

Independent Living Home:

  • Praise: workgroups who came to help with cleaning, painting and household maintenance, and landscaping.

  • Pray: The government in India has changed its policy for organizations which care for children. All homes which provide care must be owned and not rented by the organization. Even though we have appealed the new policy, we have had to close our Bethel Home as a formal group home. The girls have transitioned into our Gilgal Home. That means new houseparents, a new area, church, and school for the girls. Please pray  they will transition well. The houseparents in the Bethel Home were able to remain there with three girls who are finishing 12th grade.

  • Praise: Children were able to attend Vacation Bible School and participated in various programs.  They enjoyed learning new songs and Bible stories.


  • Pray: foster parents caring for 200 children..

  • Praise the Lord that Bill Brittain and Jim Geurink had a safe and productive trip in Liberia as they met with ministry partners there. But as with their recent trip to India, Bill is seeing how urgent and great the need is to raise additional funds for children’s education. In both Liberia and India all students pay annual admission, tuition, book, and uniform fees to attend public or Christian school.

I Thes. 5:17 Pray without ceasing.
