Then he started sharing about the love of Jesus though I was 5 years I began to grow in God’s word and sharing the Gospel to the Hindu villages from my age 10 then God had given me His heart for the people who are dying without Jesus. So I started preaching planting churches I am mentoring 300 pastors,lepers,blinds,widows and orphans under Immovable Grace Ministries Int’L(IGMI).

Only he got saved through Pastor Richard from his family. So his parents and friends would tease him and mocked him saying you are the next priest of his family temple where his father is a priest now. So they mocked him saying our gods have punished you because you went to worship foreign god when he was fallen from the pole and broken his leg. But he was saying to them when I have fallen down I was saying Jesus that is why I am alive today. Otherwise, you would see my dead body by now. The only true living God Jesus was saved my life in my life. So now Ravi though he could able to walk and work as a photographer he goes to 2 new villages every day to preach the Gospel. Because of Ravi’s faith, his brother got saved coming to church and live for Jesus.

Because of her behaviors, her husband and children left her all alone. Until last year she had no hope or joy in her life because she had a pain in her womb now nobody to help her all of her life she lived for others was waste. Now she wanted to live but her disease and pain are giving her much trouble to her. So when our immovable grace team went to her village nobody even talked to her or stand near to her. Our team members were prayed over her by sharing the Gospel. She accepted our Lord Jesus as her personal savior. Right away with tears, she confessed before all the people nobody likes me I accept all of their blame on me. I don’t want even my healing of my body but I need a people acceptance. So she was screamed before all the villagers please forgive me please forgive me. I did great mistakes I welcome my death now but I need your forgiveness. Many of them not accepting her apology but she felt peace in her heart. Now she is though very weak in her health she is living for Jesus.

JULY-AUG-SEP 2018-10-04.

Throughout in July, August, and September, we were preaching the gospel in 80 villages. More than 7500 many people have heard the Gospel.  230 Many people got saved, and 80 many people gotten water Baptism. 350 Many pastors, 240 many blinds, 480 many widows, 120 many leprosies were fed with rice.

600 Many people were growing in the Lord in 30 many of our care cell prayer groups.280 many poor kids are getting free tuition help in our 12 many of our tuition centers.

We thank of one accord if the main blessings for us to reach these poor people who need Jesus among all other 330000000 gods and goddesses. In India every newborn baby has to take care of minimum 5 of the new gods and goddesses then only they can finish worshiping all of their gods. Otherwise, many thousands of them would be left out without people. These people need the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ more than any other in the world. They have more than 1600 languages. I speak 6 languages yet many people they speak more than 10 languages still it is very few people only we can reach. In 2020 India will overtake China’s population though in size vice India very little than China. So we desperately need more prayers and more help for the mission to reach many hundreds of thousands in India.

Thank you for your help and prayers! May God Bless You!

INDIA VISIT!

Barn Swallow

It is a bird that flies from Argentina to California then back to Argentina the total distance is 16600-kilometers. All these distance they are flying on air above the sea there are no places for them to take rest on hills or find food on the ground. But how would they take rest if they are tired? How would they find food when they are hungry? Because when they start their journey from Argentina they are carrying a small stick and wherever they want to take rest or finding food they put it on the sea for floating and sitting on it then they carry it again fly.

I really wonder how God has given knowledge to the 5 sense creature to face their far journey what they need to do. I am sure He has given to a human who has a 6th sense and whom He made as His own Image to face his life challenges to be in all his life.

I wonder all the trials and tribulation that I had in my past never be big to be the one I was faced until my 30 years in India. I wonder why God is not taking a people to Him once when he got saved because I believe he needs to do more for the Lord than his own. That’s why Paul said it is no longer that I live but He who lives in me.

Like for Barn swallow God has given a small stick to pass their 16600-kilometers as a live stick God is more than able to give His beloved one to move forward to do His will. In Philippians: 4:13 Paul is saying, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

So we all need to walk with the hope towards our destiny what God has for us to walk.

Last time I went to India April 25 to August 4, 2018, God did mighty things among 3000 kids,450 pastors,4 of our churches,300 blinds,50 orphan children, 400 leprosies and train few of our mission leaders in India. Suicidal thoughts women got saved few of leprosy who never walked they were walking and blinds saw their sight. God was touched many people and me really happy to minister among the people whom God wanted me to be. I was entirely filled with His spirit to touch those sick and bound people to be free in Jesus Name.

After I come back to the US I really humble before the Lord what He has for me to do among my family not with my knowledge and power than His will, grace, love, and power. I have an experience of walking on water with Jesus it is not new to me but in practical everybody human, we all need His touch and grace otherwise we can’t fly and pass our journey. I really love all those who encourage me and love me and pray with me. My happiness is not from outside sources than who He is in me.

I encourage all of you to focus on Jesus than our ability, talents, power, and Knowledge. Because Greater is who lives in us than the one in the world. I really appreciate the one who is tender towards my ministry in India www.immovablegrace.org.

Where there is no way God can make a way but whom we rely on? To the one who called us or others? When we rely on the Holy Spirit He will make a way. If God opens the door no one can shut it. If He closed it no one can open it. But He is telling you and me, Here I have set before you the open doors. The door is no other than the Lord Jesus Christ. He said to let my sheep will enter through me and have their food in and out. I will never put you down or shame you like the human does that to you. Because you are able through me everything is possible.

When you are in the hopeless situation do not give up because He is our new hope and He is our Redeemer. Our Redeemer is living. All I say to you is you are more valuable than a sparrow. He loves you and I cares for you and me more than anything in this world. Though I have a lot to say I have to finish it. Thank you for reading it. Here I have a small prayer for all of you!

Dear Jesus thank you for your wisdom, knowledge, grace, love, power your likeness in us to face our life challenges Lord. I pray everyone who is in trouble deliver them Lord and make a way to come out from their trouble Lord. You are the God who never leave us nor forsake us, Lord. We need you all the time even when we are happy or sad. With you, all is possible for us Lord I pray for the people (800000 of them) who lost their houses in Kerala India Lord. Help us to reach them and show your love to the Lord. We need your name to be glorified in Jesus Name. We exalt your name and come to your throne of Grace as your children whom you always love and hear our prayers, Lord. Be with us Lord and teach us always to walk in your ways and fulfill all your will in our Life Lord. We know all our days are counted in your hands. We are here on earth to walk like you think like you and act like you Lord. Thank you for your Word, magnificent love, power, and Presence.  We thank you once again for sending your son Jesus to shed his blood on the cross of Calvary more than 2000 years ago on this earth. Thank you cover us Lord with your blood and blanket of grace. In Jesus name, we pray Amen! Hallelujah!

what we believe

                                               What We Believe

 

  • We Believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired and infallible Word of God, the final authority for the lives of believers in every culture and age and their rule of faith and practice. They are to be interpreted by the Holy Ghost according to their context and purpose, and in reverent obedience to the Living Word, Who speaks through them in the power of the Spirit.
  • We Believe that there is one living and true God, Who eternally exists in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; equal in power and glory; each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.
  • We Believe that God the Father has revealed Himself to be perfect in love, holiness and righteousness; that He created all, upholds all and governs all; and He so loved the world, even in the midst of its fallenness and sin, that He gave His only Son for its redemption. Like a father who runs to welcome the prodigal home, Father God is trustworthy and faithful to His children and all things are possible for those who believe in Him.
  • We Believe that Jesus Christ is God, the Living Word, and is eternally preexistent and co-equal with God the Father; that He became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. Therefore, He is perfect Deity and true humanity united in one Person forever. He lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for the sins of men by dying on the cross as their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone. He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died. He ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, the only Mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for His own. We believe in the literal, physical return of the Lord Jesus Christ to take authority and rule on earth, and to judge the living and the dead.
  • We Believe that the Holy Ghost is co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Son; that He was active in the creation of all things; that He has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ; that He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment; and that He regenerates, sanctifies, baptizes, indwells, seals, anoints, illumines, guides and bestows His gifts upon all believers. His fullness, power and holiness are appropriated in the believer’s life through faith and obedience.
  • We Believe that man (male and female) was originally created in the image and likeness of God. He was created to reflect the glory of God and represent Him on this earth. He was tempted by the devil and fell through disobedience to God. All men are born with a sinful nature and are separated from the life of God. They can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We Believe that salvation is by God’s grace and is a gift of God received by faith alone, apart from all good works and merit, and includes the forgiveness of sins, the imputation of the righteousness of Jesus Christ and the gift of eternal life. We believe that those who receive Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord are miraculously born again by the Holy Ghost and become children of God and partakers of His divine nature. We are assured and know that all things are working together and are fitting into a plan for good to and for those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose. God has planned from the beginning for man to be molded into the image of His Son, Jesus, and share inwardly His likeness; therefore, man can only find his true identity and destiny in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We Believe in the universal Church, the living spiritual body of which Jesus Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members, and in the unity of all believers in Christ with the evidence of that unity being shown by how we love one another. The Church has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations and making disciples through the equipping of the saints.
  • We Believe in the reality and personality of Satan who coordinates and motivates opposition towards God, and in the real existence of both angels and demons.
  • We Believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life, the other to everlasting damnation.

Bibles are being burnt out by the Hindu priests and Extremists in India!

In India every single day the opposition from the Hindu extremists are at a higher rate now than ever before. Bibles are being burnt out in front of their priests, churches are being broken up and pastors are being murdered. We really need your prayers for preaching the Gospel. 

We know God touched saul and he was the one who preaches the Gospel to the Gentiles. We pray the Lord would somehow touch these opposition groups.

We need more prayers and help to help Bibles and New Testaments to those who really need it. I believe God is working in India among churches and gentiles. 

IGMI is reaching these Hindu people to know the Lord. This is the right time to reach them and we need you.

God has to touch these people of India. Though God has used many thousands of missionaries to give them free education, medical aid, eradicated many superstitious like sati. 

Hindu extremists are taking the Bibles behind them Hindu priest is standing.New Testaments are put into the fire by the Hindu Extremists in India! Though few extremists are burning the Bible still God is using IGMI is giving our Bibles in many hundreds of villages on regular basis. We need minimum 1000 bibles in a month to our 300 pastors who are under our banner in India. We are requesting people of God to give your gifts towards Bible or you can get Tamil Bibles and send it to us. Please pray for us and help us to reach the unreached groups and people in remote villages and hilly places.

 

Hindu lady and a man who got saved are receiving Bibles from Pastor Richard Joseph through immovable grace ministry Int’l.

 

Forcefully taking the Bibles from Pastor and going to put into the fire .

 

IGMI is giving Bibles freely to those who are receiving Jesus and many hundreds of them are growing in the Lord by the benefits of them having bibles. It is very easy for us to follow them up.

Discipleship School &Free tuition given to poorest of the poor Dalits in India!

Discipleship School by Pastor Richard Joseph.

Immovable Grace Discipleship school in India is to teach the new young people to stand for the Lord in their faith as well as they follow Christ.

IGMI is giving Discipleship training to many hundreds of young people. Those young people many of them are becoming as a native missionaries in many parts of India.

Many times our discipleship school will be held on a street and outside of the villages or building where no one wanted to live.

IGMI has a new strategy to plant church building where there is no single christian or churches and reach the people through Free tailoring school ,tuition for poor children , church services on Sundays , Bible studies on everyday and One pastor can live as their family shelter.

Many of the times church planting failed in India as I have been seeing more than 20 years of my ministry experiences because of the church would be run under the Hindu land lord. When those people who don’t like our worship services held in their rented building or others who are opposite groups of the Gospel can threaten the house owner then the ministry could be easily removed from that village though the pastor and people are really wanted to be grow in the Lord.

 

 

Discipleship Teachings by IGMI.

Children Ministry

 

IGMI Free tuition with Gospel in India!
Free Notebook help for poor children through IGMI!

In India, our former president Nehru said, “Children are the future leaders of India.” In  India with 1.21 billion people constitutes as the second most populous country in the world, while children represent 39% of total population of the country.The children’s population (0-18) is 472 million.

While an absolute increase of 181 million in the country’s population has been recorded during the decade 2001-2011, there is a reduction of 5.05 million in the population of children aged 0-6 years during 2010-11. The decline in male children is 2.06 million and in female children is 2.99 million. The share of Children (0-6 years) in the total population has shown a decline of 2.8 points in 2011, compared to Census 2001 and the decline was sharper for female children than male children in the age group 0-6 years.

Our ministry we reach out children in the villages, schools, and streets. we saw many of the children are not having two times a food daily if they are going to school they will have a food at school at least one time. Many of their parents are having an alcoholic problem, poverty, and bondage of doing rituals and idol worship. Many of them are not even send their children to school due to poverty and caste issues.

we bring them to Christ and give them the Christ love to them so they would felt someone loves them in their life very first time. We give them sanitary help and notebooks. We have seen many of the villages are having many orphans and semi-orphan kids. when we found them we help them with rice, lentils, school materials and help them to go to school.  We also have a free tuition centers ministry so the village’s children especially Dalits kids will be getting benefits of it. Above all, we give them the Lord’s gospel so they know only Jesus is the true living God who comes to searching them. Like He said you did not search me but I searched you. You did not love me first but I loved you first.

we need this ministry has to be kept going so we are in need of Notebook help funds and sanitary funds and Tuition school teacher monthly help like $ 40. We also need minimum 5000 new testaments above all we need prayers. We also pray for the children ministers whoever wanted to get involved with us we need your help to reach these unreached area kids in India. we need your hands for this poor children. you can also come and promote our ministry in your areas. 

Widows in India!

In India when a girl baby birth to death they have to face many challenges like education, dowry, family inequality, when they are not married they have to go under the leadership of father then after married they go under their husband still patriarch’s styles are kept by the societies.

60% Dalits girls are never married. When a husband died she had to take care of her children but that is not easy for her to live because of sexual harassment from any men.

Many of them become a forceful concubine or they have to take suicide. But Immovable Grace is always concern about unreached people in India. So we started free tailoring school for the widows and poor ladies. We have reached more than 12000 women in 10 years.

We also feel our branch school be started where the city has more women death rates. We are only need of monthly salary for the teacher and one-time machines investment for the cost of running school. We have a people who give their place for us to run without any rent. We not only teach them a tailoring but our focus is to preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to them.

We are not supported by any big organization so we need your hands if God has given you such a burden to reach the Lost please let us know. We need you. Thank you.
