A Vision That Became a Reality
As a result of a dream that Pastor Joe had in 2005 Building for Him India was founded. In the dream Pastor Joe literally saw a building that was surrounding a white wall with a hole in it. Sitting in the hole were 3 children and behind them there was a group of large eyes looking out at him when he heard a voice say “come help us”. The following day he shared the dream in a church that he had helped plant in Connecticut when an Indian woman who was visiting the congregation came forward to proclaim that he did not have a dream but he had a vision of a real children’s home that her father had established in southern India years prior.
Through a series of miraculous events over the following week an opportunity opened up for him to go to India in pursuit of the mission to help the children he saw in the dream. Since its founding, Building for Him India has been established as a nationally recognized and registered Christian Ministry in India. Building for Him India has been able to expand the children’s home, constructed a church building, and is in the final stages of construction of a regional medical center and dental facility.
Building for Him India continues to provide housing, clothing, education, medical care and spiritual guidance for children being raised in the children’s home in addition to ongoing community outreaches through the provision of meals, clothing, medical and dental care.
