It seems as though we have been living here the past year struggling with the government with the rights to keep the girls. As you can read throughout our eblog posts, people in our State wanted one child.  The Eastern slogan: “We two, but we are one.”  This means the government only wanted us to have one child. Because of customs in India, girls are very expensive to care for and raise, so everyone wants a boy. In villages, some people were killing the infant girls and we rescued them from death. These people didn’t want to get caught by the police so their paperwork they gave us was incorrect. Now, we are in a big battle to keep the girls out of “bad orphanages.” Thus far we have spent $15,000 in legal fees. We are expecting to spend another $6000. We need 21 churches to do a  fundraiser for a $1,000 so we can finish this epic struggle in the courts.   Nov 7 was Diwali Celebration (festival of lights). In Hinduism, this is a festival for the spiritual victory of light over darkness.  But for us, it’s a reminder that the government stole the fourteen girls that we saved from feticide and put them back into the darkness of our culture. Painfully ironic! The last time we saw the girls they...

Baby Girls Home Ministry Russal & Kumari Greetings: I am Russal Raj and my wife Kumari Russal, while working with the Bitner’s church planting team in an organization called Youth With A Mission we started visiting many remote villages where the people were rejecting their baby girls. We were not able to have children and when we were praying about this, God spoke to us using Gen. 17:4. “As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shall be a father of many nations” (Our Tamil Bible says: “you shall be a father of many Children”). We realized that God had a plan for us and He was going to fulfill it. After this, I had a dream that ‘many small fish were dying because they were out of water. People were stepping on the fish. Some of them were already dead while others were still dying. However, no one cared about any of the fish at all. In the dream, Kumari and I took all the fish and put them back into the water safely. After I woke-up I shared the dream with my wife. She told me that she had the same dream! This confirmed Genesis 17:4 in us, and we accepted that God wanted us to save the baby girls from the horrid death that awaited them. Getting Started We started saving lives. We didn’t care much about who cared; these girls were being killed and we were going to try to stop as many as possible. In some districts the people believe that baby girls are not well and a curse to their...
