Mercy Ministry Volume 2621

Mercy Ministry - Home Page Nurse Priscilla, Villages YWAM Campus Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! By the grace of God, The Mercy Medical Ministry has served many in Jesus’ name. The past five years in O*** has gone fast. God called me to this highly persecuted state to be a nurse in the villages located in the mountains where there are no doctors. Specifically, my Mercy Medical Ministry comes alongside the church planters helping them show love and kindness to the people. In five years, we have ran numerous medical camps, eye camps, and have seen God bring healing to many. This work of kindness helped the church planters plant five churches. Three are doing very well. Of course, there is always opposition in O***. Many people oppose the church. But God is in control. We show kindness. The Gospel is preached. We leave the results to Him. VILLAGE MINISTRY: These days are thrilling for us but He is always faithful to protect us from the animals in the jungles and from evil people. One village is actually 75 kilometers away from where I am staying so up and down the mountains, it feels like 150 kilometers. At the village, nine of them were baptized. Glory to God! Just before going to the baptism spot from the church, we lacked the van passes to the church. The Hindu official people came to visit the village. So with prayer, we quickly finished the baptism service and went to the medical camp. Performing the medical camp, we will get appreciation from the people but a baptism service...

Church Planting, Mercy Ministry Mark Volume 2621

Church Planting & Mercy Ministry Home Page Mark and Hepsibah Village Ministry Greetings from India. We believe God is calling us to reach our district consisting of 1,486 farming villages and a population of over 400,000 people. Ninety percent of our villages do not have a church. Only 2 percent of the population is Christian. Presently, we are equipping and supporting pastors and their lay leaders in our area to plant more churches. We are praying to expand our ministry in 2021 to plant new churches throughout our district. We plow the hard rocky soil in our area with good works in Christ’s name. We have ministries like sewing and tailoring schools for mothers who need extra income. We offer free Day Care centers so the moms can work. We have after school tuition classes for the poor school-aged children who are not currently enrolled in school. We also have literacy training. We work to help the needy start small businesses. For ones who are hurting, we offer medical care, a counseling center, and help feed the orphans and widows. Our social work has opened to the door for evangelism, Bible distribution, home care groups, and discipleship training of lay leaders and church believers. During the Covid lockdown, we were able to help 95 pastors by giving about half of them enough food to help the poor in their churches. Additionally, we gave over 100,000 drinks, 25,000 food packages, 20,000 immunity boosters, 4935 kg tons of rice with all the spices and cooking oil they needed to the homeless and migrant workers. We helped the local police force by...

CHURCH PLANTING & COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT Sam Paul Volume 2621

CHURCH PLANTING & COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT Samuel Paul India Greeting in the Sweet Name our Lord Jesus Christ, By the Grace of God we are fine and Ministry also fine. It is my pleasure to share with you the burden and what the Lord is doing through us. Church ministry - We are doing church ministry in a highly sensitive area. It is full of Hindu fanatic people who belong to a particular high caste. Even from the beginning, we have faced many persecutions. By the grace of God, about 70 people are coming to church regularly. Even in spite of the Covid lockdown, we were able to baptize three Hindu people. A Hindu family struggling with the feeling of demonic oppression in their house invited us to pray for them. We prayed and shared the power of Jesus Christ. After our prayers, Vas*** accepted Jesus Christ and promised to come to church from next week. Please pray for his growth and maturity in Christ. Bible classes - We are making disciples through the teaching of the Bible chronologically by using the “Lamb of God.” Many people are being blessed and are experiencing life changes after participating in this Bible study. Through this study, many people have become full-time pastors and have started new churches in new and unreached areas. At present, we are meeting in two different locations. Leprosy Ministry : We have a heavy burden for and always consider the people who have leprosy. These people have been rejected from their own family. Some are living on the street. Some live in a leprosy colony. We go to...

Girl’s Baby Home Russal Volume 2621

Baby Girl Home - Home Page Russal, Kamari, and Staff South India The Hindu government still has our girls we saved from infanticide. The Covid19 lockdown brought our fight in the high court to a complete halt. As you can read throughout our other blog posts, people in our State wanted one child.  The Eastern slogan: “We two, but we are one.”  This means the government only wanted us to have one child. Because of customs in India, girls are very expensive to care for and to raise, so everyone wants a boy. In villages, some people were killing their infants when they discovered they had a girl.  We worked in these villages to literally rescue our girls from death. The parents of these girls didn’t want to get caught by the police so most of the details on the paperwork is incorrect. Now, we are in a big battle to make our government return our girls to us. We have made some headway, but it is an ongoing battle we can never give up. Our cost to keep the house for the girls so we can maintain our non-government status is very high. Now, the court is prohibiting us from discussing the Baby Girls Home situation with others. Please email tommy@equipthenations.org for our current information. This past month we have been busy doing personal evangelism. A new resource we have is a book written by a Hindu priest who accepted Christ. He is now in ministry here locally. His testimony is exciting and thousands of people have come to Christ after they have read his book. I met...

Church Planting John S. Volume 2621

John Solomon & Family - Home Page Church Planting & Ministering to the Poor Undisclosed location Area of Malaysia Greetings from Malaysia. God is calling us to reach the rejected Tamil speaking Hindu people living in object poverty and the unreached and unengaged group of Tamil Muslims with the love of our Savior Jesus. Our island has 35,000 Malaysian Indian Hindus with a 0.01% Christian population and 285,000 Unreached and Unengaged People Group (UUPG) of Indian Muslims. Because of the Muslim persecution, the Tamil Muslims are without a Christian witness. Our goal in 2021 is to plant the first church for the Tamil Muslims. Because of the persecution, this is an overwhelming goal. We are going to train leaders to do good works, manage and conduct prayer stations, run Bible distribution events, and direct and perform evangelism efforts among the Muslims. When the ground is tilled and ready for seed, we will be to present “The Straight Path” using select biblical references in the Quran as we teach our chronological Bible lessons With the Tamil Hindus, we let our Christian light shine by living the Letter of James to the poor, the widows, and the orphans. We are constantly feeding the homeless. We would like to one day build a refuge home for them. We are helping the orphans attend school by buying uniforms and school materials. If they are not educated, they have no hope of surviving here. Our outreach to the Tamil homeless Hindus is never ending. We supply food, like rice, cooking oil and doll on an ongoing basis. The lack of economic opportunities have created...
