I love Becky’s articles. It is a good reminder to me that God is there in the details of our lives and that impossible things can happen.

Thank you Becky for such a wonderful article about what is and what will happen in Bihar!! We have personally witnessed what amazing "miracles" you have accomplished with RisingStar in Tamilnadu and now there is the same hope for the leprosy affected children and their parents in that area of Bihar. Thank you Becky and thank you to the Proctors.

I use “” for everything I order through Amazon. This site allows you to choose a charity that a certain percentage of you order total will be donated to. The first time I read about Rising Star, I determined that this would be the organization that I would choose. Can you imagine how many funds would be raised in even a short time if you and all those you know would pick Rising Star as their charity?? I urge you to check it out for yourself, then spread the news. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a hospital, proper medical care, an Oh so comfortable dorm for the students? Everyone you know who orders from Amazon can help with this!

Becky, thank you for your efforts to make the impossible POSSIBLE! And thank you to the Proctor's, for recognizing a way to help that vision come to light! It was hard to see in some of the photos the light of hope become dimmed through a hard life. That will be a wonderful miracle to see! My wife and I are grateful that we can be a small part of this effort through our contributions. I hope you'll report out the progress of the school, and changes in their lives!
