Dorene Benson – Memorial
A School for the Children of Lepers in the Ashroi Kendra Dream Center was dedicated in January 2011 in honor of Good News India’s eldest Sponsor, Dorene Benson. It was built in her 99th year and she was thrilled to know these children were to be blessed with a good Christian education. She had taught in one-room school houses in Montana before she married (1931-34) and later in a Christian School after her children were grown. Dorene accepted Christ in 1946 while listening to Evangelist Charles E. Fuller on a battery operated radio in her kitchen on a ranch in western Montana. And for the rest of her life, she was a great supporter of Missions around the world. Dorene woke up in Heaven on April 2, 2011, just five months short of her 100th birthday. Her prayers for and support of Good News India in her last years were a highlight of her days.
