During their summer mission trip, Regent University students promised to build a group of orphaned boys a home in Silvassa, India. Now they're working overtime to deliver on that big promise.
They've already purchased the land and this weekend, the "Christ For India" team set sail on a dinner cruise along the Elizabeth River to raise the funds for the building.
They were joined by Pastor R. Abraham from India. The new boys home will be a part of his growing ministry.
Abraham said the students' work is just one part of a big revival he's witnessing in his country.
"Very recently, we are having a revival in one of the eastern states, it's called Orissa, where we used to have big persecution against Christianity," he said. "And in the last six months, one of my churches, which was just 40 people is starting to see revival."
"People are coming from nowhere. They don't have clue who they are, where they are coming from, coming getting healed, set free," Abraham said.
Pastor Abraham said that the church has grown from 40 people to more than 3,000 in six months.
Children born blind have been completely healed through prayer and three men were raised from the dead.
One man was bit by a cobra. With his corpse completely wrapped, the villagers carried him to be cremated but after a pastor laid hands on him, witnesses said he was revived.
Regent University students believe God is using them to bring these same miracles to the orphans they've adopted.
They currently are raising more than $1,000 a month to support the boys, organize yearly mission trips to send teams to minister to the kids, and have plans to complete the orphanage by May 2014.
