If you are unfamiliar with the mission of As Our Own in India, I am especially pleased this week to introduce you to Ralph Borde, a young man whom God has equipped and called to lead this ministry.
As Our Own is a Christ-based, community-driven movement in India that rescues vulnerable children from certain enslavement and exploitation, caring for them “as our own”.
As Our Own rescues children from lives of slave labor, such as organized begging and the sex trade. They also work to break the societal patterns that produce exploitation and enslavement by investing in Lighthouse church communities, training pastors at Hope College, and involving local leaders with community transformation.
On First Person, Ralph explains how God clearly called him from a successful corporate career to leading this ministry. On this Mother’s Day weekend, he also give us a very unique way of honoring Moms while helping the children of India. Click here for more.
