partner of Helping Hands of India, allowing those who sponsor children to contribute through
Big Family and thus have donations be eligible for deduction on federal income taxes.

We ask that the volunteer intern prayerfully consider serving in India for a period of at least
six months... preferably one year.  Volunteer service workers may serve for shorter periods of
time.  Churches and other Christian organizations are invited to serve in the orphanages on

volunteer will raise funds to cover expenses of air travel and miscellaneous expenses for their
stay in India.

Big Family Mission is organized as a mission society.  Our spiritual covering and 501(c)(3)
status are derived from our affiliation with Lighthouse Ministry and Lighthouse Community
Church (home church of Ken and Dianne Dockery, founders of Big Family Mission).  Our
mission society is inter-denominational, and we encourage churches and Christians from
different denominations to get involved with God’s mission to His special children in Eastern
Europe, India, and other parts of the world.
