 Bible Distribution

As illustrated in the scriptures below, the Word of God is of utmost importance. For those with no knowledge it can bring them to a new understanding of the Truth. For those who already have knowledge it can bring a deeper and more thorough understanding of the Truth.

In India, bibles are not readily available in the native tongue and so we are very motivated to make bibles and gospel tracts available to those who want to receive them. When one compares the cost of each bible to the impact that the Word of God can have, the investment is extremely worthwhile and we have a deep desire to increase this ministry as the available funds allow.

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Romans 10:17

For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow, it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Ephesians 6:17

 Bore Wells

In India, people are needlessly suffering due to the lack of drinking water and the government has failed to supply the required water. Much to our dismay, this condition leads to sickness, disease and much human suffering. Our bore well ministry has been a very successful project in reaching different villages through the living water that these wells provide. As the funds become available, we are digging bore wells and helping the local churches and villagers.

By providing a water supply we accomplish two objectives. The first objective is showing them the love of Christ and His desire for humanitarian efforts that improve living conditions and reduce suffering. The second objective is of course to improve quality of life while reducing sickness, suffering and disease. We currently have 30 requests from different villages for bore wells and we welcome you to join us in supporting this project.

Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered. Proverbs:11:25

Then God opened Hagar’s eyes, and she saw a well full of water. She quickly filled her water container and gave the boy a drink. Genesis: 21:19

Then all the Egyptians dug along the riverbank to find drinking water, for they couldn’t drink the water from the Nile. Exodus: 7:24

 Children's Care

Children are precious gifts that become the future and next generation. Currently, we are performing outreach to the leprosy colony children and fishermen colony children. Most of these children have lost their parents and are being sheltered in their grandparent’s homes.

Many children who must reside within the leprosy colony are continually being exposed to grave sickness and disease. As the funds become available, we are helping these children with milk and eggs. Also, we have opened a church for them and every week we engage them with Sunday school and the attendance now stands at no less than 80 children.

Jesus told her, "First I should feed the children--my own family, the Jews. It isn't right to take food from the children and throw it to the dogs." Mark: 7:27

Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.” Luke: 18:16

 Church Buildings

In India, the people lack sufficient locations to gather and worship. As the funds become available, we are supporting the local pastors with the needed construction work. According to our budget we have been able to help supply bricks, cement, iron and labor.

As these churches are constructed they allow for the building of congregations while also providing an outreach for humanitarian efforts and the propagation of the gospel. We welcome your prayers and support so that we may continue to build more houses of worship.

"Now, my son, the LORD be with you, and may you have success and build the house of the LORD your God, as he said you would. 1 Chronicles: 22:11

Praise you the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Psalm: 150:1

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We bless you from the house of the LORD. Psalm: 118:26

And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Hebrews: 10:25

 Fisherman Colony

We adopted this particular colony after receiving a clear vision from Him. Four years back I was led by His Spirit to this particular place and started a church by renting an old building. At first, they refused to give us the building but when He is in action no one can stop it.

These colony people are hardworking people but many of them are smugglers and thieves. They commit theft of the oil from the pipe line and also steal goods from the big ships. We have a great opposition here but God is helping us to win the souls for His Kingdom.

We started a church here with only five members and in four years God gave us an increase to 49 members! With God’s blessing, our labor of love here is going to win even more souls in the coming years.

I am currently praying to buy this piece of property but they have not offered it to us as of yet. Kindly pray that we may buy this piece of property and build our own church at this location. There is great need here and already God has moved upon the hunger for the gospel that exists in this place.

After Paul had seen the vision, we got ready at once to leave for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them. Acts: 16:10

But Jesus told him, "Let the spiritually dead bury their own dead! Your duty is to go and preach about the Kingdom of God." Luke: 9:60

Jesus replied, "Let us go somewhere else--to the nearby villages--so I can preach there also. That is why I have come." Mark: 1:38

And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Mark: 16:15

"Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh. Announce my judgment against it because I have seen how wicked its people are." Jonah: 1:2

Then we will be able to go and preach the Good News in other places far beyond you, where no one else is working. Then there will be no question of our boasting about work done in someone else's territory. 2 Corinthians: 10:16

 Free Medical Camp

We are currently helping the fishermen colony with the free medical care. Four doctors are engaged in this camp. Once every three months we are engaging the big camp with 500 to 750 members and supporting them with medicines.

We are praying for the necessary supplies in order to do this activity once every month as the need is so great. Kindly pray for the needs and we also welcome your donations to buy medicinal supplies.

Heal the sick who are there and tell them, 'The kingdom of God is near you.' Luke: 10:9

They had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Even those who were being tormented by unclean spirits were being healed. Luke: 6:18

Large crowds followed him there, and he healed their sick. Matthew: 19:2

And Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons, but he would not let the demons speak because they knew who he was. Mark: 1:34

 HIV Care

We currently have 30 HIV patients in our village and we are supporting them with medicines. We are also helping them with rice and other needed groceries. In addition to medicine and food we are also educating the villagers about HIV through the awareness camps.

While showing the HIV patients the love of Christ we are able to help reduce their suffering while also presenting them with the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Additionally, we hope to educate the locals while increasing their understanding of HIV transmission.

"Those who are sickly you have not strengthened, the diseased you have not healed, the broken you have not bound up, the scattered you have not brought back, nor have you sought for the lost; but with force and with severity you have dominated them. Ezekiel: 34:4

I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak, but the sleek and the strong I will destroy. I will shepherd the flock with justice. Ezekiel: 34:16

 Jungle Outreach

Once every three months I set out to the jungle in an effort to proclaim the gospel there. These jungle people are very lost and idol worship the waters as their god. We are concentrated on introducing the living water of the one true God to them.

This is very challenging and we are truly honored and love to face any situation for His sake. There is great danger in this particular ministry and so we are asking for your fervent prayers for our safety and also that these blinded people would be given seeing eyes and hearing ears and softened hearts to turn from their idol worship and instead begin to know and worship the one true God the creator of all things in heaven and earth.

"And on that day," says the LORD of Heaven's Armies, "I will erase idol worship throughout the land, so that even the names of the idols will be forgotten. I will remove from the land both the false prophets and the spirit of impurity that came with them. Zechariah: 13:2

For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person--such a man is an idolater--has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Ephesians: 5:5

For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person--such a man is an idolater--has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 1 Corinthians: 10:14

Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit was being provoked within him as he was observing the city full of idols. Acts: 17:16

 Leprosy Colony

Once every two months we are feeding all the 250 lepers with the physical and Spiritual food. We engage them in meetings and we worship with them and encourage them for the life we are going to receive when Jesus comes back, while our hope is with Jesus and He is faithful.

The physical condition of the lepers is heartbreaking and we desire to give them encouragement and spiritual guidance. We kindly ask for your prayers to reach out to them physically and spiritually.

Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. Matthew: 10:8

Instantly the leprosy disappeared, and the man was healed. Mark: 1:42

While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, "Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean." Luke: 5:12

 Marriveedu School

In our village we have a simple hut as a school and we are blessed to do our outreach activities there. We are praying for a more permanent building where the children can enjoy their schooling in all of the seasons.

We are currently supporting these children with milk, eggs and bread once each month. We have set a goal to be able do this outreach every day and we are requesting your prayers and generous support to make this possible.

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs: 22:6

Tell it to your children, and let your children tell it to their children, and their children to the next generation. Joel: 1:3

See, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Psalm: 127:3

Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings have you ordained strength because of your enemies, that you might still the enemy and the avenger. Psalm: 8:2

And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who are those with you? And he said, The children which God has graciously given your servant. Genesis: 33:5

 Old Age Care

We currently have 70 old age people in our church. Some of them have lost their children and some were thrown out of their families due to their old age and so they are living with great sorrow.

We responded by encouraging them with the great hope in Him and help them with rice and groceries once every month. We love to support them with a small pension so they can feel dignified and independent to have some money for their needs.

Kindly pray for these people and extend your love to them. They have suffered great loss and bear the burden of having a low quality of life each and every day. It is our desire to lift them up and bring a new sense of happiness and joy into their lives and it is our hope that their remaining days will be pleasant and spiritually focused on Him who will one day deliver them into the Kingdom where every tear will be wiped away.

Rise in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God. I am the LORD. Leviticus: 19:32

Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained by a righteous life. Proverbs: 16:31

Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. Isaiah: 46:4

Never speak harshly to an older man, but appeal to him respectfully as you would to your own father. Talk to younger men as you would to your own brothers. Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters. Take care of any widow who has no one else to care for her. But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 1 Timothy: 5:1-4

 Orissa Outreach

Once every six months we are outreaching for many churches and encouraging many in the region of Orissa. This place is still dangerous for the Gospel but where He calls He leads and protects too.

In the year of 2009, 5000 Christians were killed by the Hindu rebels and many churches and houses were burned down by them. We have already distributed 1,500 Bibles in different places, and 30 bicycles to the poor pastors.

We are also working in the prisons and helping and spreading the good news of forgiveness in Him. We ask for your prayers for the safety of these people and we also ask that you would pray for God to bind the work of the enemy in this region. As funds become available we will continue to pass out bibles and tracts while also aiding with humanitarian support.

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew: 5:10

If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: 'No servant is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin. Now, however, they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates me hates my Father as well. If I had not done among them what no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. But now they have seen these miracles, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: 'They hated me without reason.' John: 15:18-25

 Pastor's Conference

Once each month 60 pastors are gathering in a place and discussing many issues. We are encouraging the pastors with leadership teachings. We collaborate and choose a location and all together we then touch many doors for the purpose of street evangelism.

While knocking upon doors we are blessed with the opportunity to witness, pray and pass out tracts. It is our earnest hope that these efforts will bring people to the knowledge of the truth in these locations which are nearly void of any form of gospel outreach.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" Isaiah: 6:8

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise. Proverbs: 11:30

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts: 1:8

But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. 2 Timothy: 4:5

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost. Luke: 19:10

Their responsibility is to equip God's people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. Ephesians: 4:12

 Rice Distribution

We have selected two colonies which are below poverty so we distribute ten kilograms of rice to each family once per month. Kindly pray for additional funding so that we may reach out to additional colonies.

Dispersing food is a blessing for humanitarian needs and it softens hearts in preparation to hear the message which we bring. By showing the love of God to the lost we are blessed with opportunities to share the story of Jesus and the blessed hope which is only found in Him.

Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon. Isaiah: 58:10

He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses. Proverbs: 28:27

John replied, "If you have two shirts, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry." Luke: 3:11

What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food and you say, "Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well"--but then you don't give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. But someone will say, "You have faith; I have deeds." Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do. James: 2:14-18

 Sewing Center

At the sponsored sewing center we train the widows and teenage girls with tailoring skills for four months. This project will help the women to make money, so we are donating sewing machines to all participants who successfully completed their graduation.

Reaching these women for Christ is the primary goal of this ministry. The secondary goal is to provide work skills which in turn can be used to give dignity and a sense of accomplishment. This in turn allows these women to labor for funds which can be used to better their quality of life while removing that sense of hopelessness. This ministry has been highly successful and so we are requesting your prayers and support in order that we may continue and even expand this ministry.

Sewing Center Power Point

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah: 29:11

 Street Evangelism

Once each month we gather around 15 pastors and we select a colony and we touch each and every door. As the doors are opened we are inviting people to the church, distributing gospel tracts and openly praising and worshiping on the streets. There is such great need for evangelism in this part of the world as most of the population has no knowledge of the plan of salvation through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ. Romans: 10:17

To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. 1 Corinthians: 9:22

And Paul went in, as was his custom, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures. Acts:17:2

 Street Feeding

Once every two months we feed all the poor people who are sleeping side by the roads and pavements. It is incredibly heart breaking to eye witness the extreme poverty that these people live in.

Knowing that this is their daily existence is even more heart wrenching. Our desire is to reach these people with humanitarian relief while also sharing with them the good news of Jesus Christ. We sincerely appreciate your prayers and support as it is our desire to continue and expand this ministry as the funds allow.

He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done. Proverbs: 19:17

And don't forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. Hebrews: 13:16

Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians: 9:7

If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion--how can God's love be in that person? 1 John:3:17

Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you. Matthew:5:42

Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full--pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back. Luke:6:38

He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. Proverbs:14:31

 Vacation Bible School

Twice per year we engage the VBS for 80 children for 3 days. We feed them all with food and snacks. These children are so precious and our desire is to train them in the truths of God’s word. This will establish them spiritually while also equipping them to teach others as they grow spiritually.

There is great need as there are so many children who can be reached through this ministry. We kindly ask for your prayers and support as it is our desire to continue and expand this ministry by adding more children each and every year.

Vacation Bible School 2013 PDF

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord. Ephesians:6:4

These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. Deuteronomy:6:6-7

 Women's Conference

Encouraging the women with spiritual teachings and helping them with new skills and ideas for small scale business is the main motto. We have found that these women have a sincere desire to make a helpful financial contribution to their families.

It is our intention to give them knowledge and skills to enhance their ability to be more successful in their business activities. We also focus on teaching them wise counsel from God’s Word so that they are fully equipped to pursue their dreams from a biblical perspective.

Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands. She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls. She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night. In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers. She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy. When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple. Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes. She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Proverbs:31:10-28
