Precious Children of India: Giving Voice to Destitute Children of the World by Elizabeth Ann Carpenter

Children around the world live in dire conditions without even the basic necessities of water, food, shelter, and love. They often suffer in silence, struggling just to exist among the unexplainable and irreversible conditions in which they find themselves. Many are so young they do not know what they lack – the love of a family and the comfort of a home. Survival is their only concern as they grow up in a world of adults who seem to have forgotten them or are so busy with their own survival that they really do not have time to care.

These first person narratives are compiled from conversations with dozens of boys and girls in India. They put a voice to the suffering that they and thousands more like them endure every day. Children bravely share their stories of being caste bound, trafficked, beggars, witnesses to murder, unwanted, and of suffering great loss. Each child is a witness to his or her own story of survival. From their voices can be heard the desperate plea for someone to care, and if not for themselves, then for those even less fortunate whose voices have not been heard.

About the Author
Elizabeth Carpenter, and her husband, Bruce, have been deeply touched by the desperate needs of children around the world. They answered God’s call to give these children a voice by gathering and sharing their stories. From this calling, His Precious Children: A Story-Sharing Ministry was formed. Their ongoing passion is to work with needy children around the world and empower them through sharing their stories. Their most recent trip was to India.

Elizabeth and Bruce live in Columbus, Ohio, with their two dogs, Tippy and Zoey. They have two grown children, their daughter, Christina (husband Brian), and son, Zachary; also, like a son, Liz’s youngest brother, Kevin. They love being grandparents to Ethan and Oliver too. They are part of the church family at Discover Christian Church in Dublin, Ohio.
