Pastor Philip Bloch introduced Wendy Oesterling, director of development for Bethania Kids. She gave an informative and descriptive presentation of the orphanage that was started 30 years ago in India. It celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2017. Bethania continues to grow, and 100 percent of all contributions are given directly to the orphanage.
