Merwin Joshua grew up in a family with strong Christian values, but his life was headed in the wrong direction. In 2003 he said, “The Lord loved me so much, He intervened in my life in just the right time even without my invitation.” In 2004 he joined the Relief and Development Department of the Evangelical Church of India and VisionTrust in 2005.

The VisionTrust India Learning Centers provide protein-rich meals, clean drinking water, basic hygiene training, periodic health checkups, and deworming medication. By attending the Learning Centers, the children have a quiet place away from their chaotic homes to study and receive tutoring. Most importantly, since these children are living in a polytheistic culture, the Learning Centers teach children about the love of Jesus Christ and what it means to live for God and love others, often for the very first time.
