Testimonies

 

BELOW THIS BANNER IS SAYING THE LORD ONE WHO FORSAKEN US IN THE TSUNAMI WE DON’T WANT. CHASED OUT CHRISTIANITY AND ITS MISSIONARIES FROM OUR NATION

1.

In Many parts of Indian villages entrances, they put a billboard it is saying no other religious people are allowed to come in for preach or convert any of our people. But one of these villages a man name is pandi he said us to come to his house and not conducting normal prayer meeting start with singing songs etc., but teach us like moral teaching session. So he said I know before you conduct a meeting at a street where anyone can hear about Jesus but now we need your protection so please come inside and we will come to you for welfare meeting from a Social organization you can come to us. Then teach us about the Lord Jesus. The thing is MR. Pandi has already welfare meeting in his house so those people still thinking that he is holding a meeting for people welfare purpose. Yes, indeed he is helping people to walk in the ways of our Lord.Our God is miraculously doing wonderful things in this village. Nearly 20 people are attending in pandi’s house.

Aruna was saved from a strong Hindu family. But she is the only one daughter in her house from middle-class family. Because she became a believer there is no one ready to marry her from her relatives. So all of her relatives and family they were saying to her if you are Hindu you would be married and having a blessed life.  But Aruna never give up her hope on Jesus she said my Lord is faithful to me so far He never leaves me nor forsaken me. But time passed her parents thought that she would never marry because they said to Aruna that all Christians are low caste when you marry a low caste people please don’t come.

But Aruna got a nice guy from their same background who got saved. He shared the Gospel with them in a way Aruna family could accept Jesus. Because Aruna father is a carpenter man is called (in caste – Aasari means carpenter ) in India Aasari . Aruna husband said to them Jesus also carpenter he died for all of us particularly Jesus was doing the same job we are doing it. Aruna’s parents moved by it now they all give their life to Jesus. Now the whole family is Coming to church every week and bible studies and all our prayer meetings by bringing up some people with them.

NEW LADY GOT A NEW TESTAMENT!

A women name is Kaleeswari a strong Hindu lady never heard the name of Jesus before. But she lived as a prostitute in her village. She has nobody to share about her life. One day when she was passing by a shop she heard a group of people singing a song about Jesus where our Immovable Grace Village ministry team conducted a prayer meeting.

While she was hearing the Gospel Lord touched her heart she was cried out for repentance and given her life to Jesus. She had thrown all of her idols. Now she is not prostitute anymore doing evangelism in the villages after villages.

Now her villagers are seeing her face is filled with happiness and Joy many of them begin to be her friends. Kaleeswari is sharing the Gospel with many of the villages children and people who are spending their lives without Jesus. She is a living testimony to more than 20 villages whom she knew by the people as a prostitute.

A man name is Perumal was an orphan from his childhood. But he was grown up in his uncle house who promised to his parents by taking care of him well. Perumal parents have died from HIV. They were given their house and other property for them to give education and food. But after 2 years they stop sending him to school and sent him to work in a market. He was staying in a market all of his time then he got leprosy after he got it he went to his uncle to give him medicine. But he told him to not come home anymore because of leprosy. Then himself he went to Government hospital for getting free medication there he told his situation. He was sent into Leprosy home. There he got no one to come and see him and care for him. This month he was decided to leave the home for taking poison. He thought no one is there for him in this world why should l live? He was crying out in his bed I have only one thing if there is any God let them show to me in any way that you love me. There when our IGMI team went to preach the Gospel they said Jesus loves the people who affected by leprosy He died for them also.

Jesus cleanse leprosy so when Perumal heard those words he asked Jesus now I believe you are the true living God who sent these people to answer me, revealed yourself to me. Perumal realizes only in Jesus he has a purpose live. He received Jesus as his Lord and savior. Now he is preaching the Gospel to others Leprosy in surrounding leprosy colonies in India.

So she attends there and heard the Gospel begin to believe the Lord will give her a baby. She also asked the team to pray for her they were saying about Abraham story and help her to believe in the Lord. She started to believe in the Lord.

NEW CONVERTS IN IGMI!

6.

Free tuition has been started in 2 villages for poor children. In a remote village where there is no single shop or hospital, all people are Hindus no one single Christians among 2000 houses. Our IGMI team went to preach the Gospel by going after the walk in a muddy hot road. There was a man name Sundaram he had affected by Tuberculosis. He could not able to go out and work but his wife is the one who finds a cooly laborer. They have one daughter who is a teenager could not able to go to school because they spent all of their money for his disease medication.

When our team sharing the Gospel he gave his heart to Jesus and received the Lord as a first person in that Hindu village. Though he is still sick he believes in the Lord Jesus Christ will heal him completely. There is a prayer meeting happening for other new believers to come and hear the word of God on weekly basis. His daughter and wife see much changes in him that before he can not able to eat food or walk but now he gets much improvement in his body that our Lord Jesus is healed him.

Even in 2017 years passed a village never allowed any Christians into this village for preaching the Gospel and converting people.  Pastor Richard had been chased out from this village when he was preaching even last year. There IGMI gospel team went courageously and doing door to door personal evangelism many of them were not receiving even the Gospel tracts because they were not able to read or write and warned by their village Hindu leaders do not have any relationship with other religious who come into the village. Finally, a lady name Shanthi who was Lyme one received it and said to them I do not need of any gods or goddesses because my life is void meaningless. Then our Gospel team member Mala said to her I know how you were escaped from the fire accident. Though your parents, all of your relatives and lover forsaken you God still thinking about you He has a special plan for you.  Our IGMI team prayed over her she was heartbroken cried before the Lord and received Lord as her personal savior. Now IGMI has given her a Bible she is started reading her Bible and talking about Jesus all the time to the village children. Many Children are coming to the Lord because she helps her village children in their studies.

A  Hindu devotee man name is Alagesan who was a drunkard and doing real estate business in India. He was never thinking about his health but he got a stroke. Then he could not able to walk and do anything became paralyzed. People were laughing at him because she never respected anyone so they all thought that he got a punishment from their idols.

He was realizing how this stroke changed his life entirely. But he is living near to the Manathururukathin Sabai. One day our IGMI team member went to do the door to door evangelism saw he was laying down on the floor like the worm. Our team member shared him a Gospel of our Lord Jesus and He can heal his sickness.

First, he was arguing with them then he begins to trust Jesus and they prayed for him. He got healed now he can able to walk. He could able to sell sandals store now he could able to come to worship the Lord. All of his friends and relatives are mocking him that he became a Christians like he only trusting one God rather than our 3 billion gods and goddesses. But he is standing for the Lord saying He only the true loving God and true Living God you may be teasing me but I will live for Him only in all my life.

 

Who are the broken people ? and Why Gospel needed to India ?

Many thousands of leprosy who lost their fingers,legs, eye sight and social acceptance,family. These leprosy people are lost their hope in this whole world still consider as a cursed people in India.

Nobody loves them and help them IGMI is helping these people by the Christ love and care . We see smiles on their face and heart overflowed with Joy and hope of Christ in them.

leprosy life in India is like a dead animals at the road side. Nobody cares or help them. But IGMI is helping those people by going to them like good Samaritan.
Leprosy man has no place to live but he lives nearer to the dustbin where no one is even come to it for filling the dust in it.
Jesus said when I am naked you have clothed me.

PASTOR RICHARD AND IGMI TEAM GO AFTER SEARCHING VILLAGES TO VILLAGES FOR HELPING PEOPLE WHO ARE NEGLECTED AND GIVING THEM A GOSPEL AND RICE HELP.

We bring greetings to you for visiting our web site . You will see us preaching the Gospel to the unreached people of India. Our  hearts are crying out to God for the Indian people who worship man made idols,stone,all kinds of animals and creation. Our goal is to bring them all to Jesus Christ by sharing His loving words of God in our preaching. We also train and help many hundreds of  men and women to reach their own villages for Jesus. Always it is our hearts desire to minister His love to His lost children.

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MYSELF & MY COUNTRY!
I am pastor Richard Joseph who married to Julie having 2 daughters and one son. I am pasturing from 1998 till now planting many churches in India and helping  our native missionaries to start their churches in various places. We were Preaching the Gospel to whole over Tamil Nadu lepers in their beggars colonies and to hundreds of blinds . We were taking care of orphans by encouraging them and helping with rice and lentils plus educational supplies. We are helping the poorest of the poor pastors and helping the Dalit kids .

Our ultimate Goal is to preach the gospel to the Hindu people in India. India has nearly 2 billion people (not million) but 3 billion gods and goddesses they have. As I said it earlier they worship all the living creatures like sun ,moon earth animals ,living person ,stone ,snake, cow, donkey all the animals and dead family members .They please their gods by having a fear through doing rituals like walking on fire ,giving human blood sacrifices , hair sacrifices, taking holy walk ,put a hook by piercing in their back of connecting their idols chariot and dragging them literally on the muddy bumpy roads for many hundreds of miles  showing to their idols how they are devoted themselves to those idols .

Mostly all early morning you can see people crowded to the temple for worship by bowing down to them rolling down to them. Tuesday and Friday is their holy days. The women in the houses they clean it and putting fragrances and smokes to their idols many of them takes fast those days.

Hindu people they worship Cow because they believe lots of their idols are living in different parts of the cow. In many of the Indian villages and cities you could able to see the temple cows are roaming in and around everywhere it is called holy cow. So people will feed them and drink cows urination as a holy water and burn those cow dung and make it as powder put it on their forehead as holy powder.

HOLY COW!

Each and every  Castes there are worshiping different gods and goddesses in India. Their every idols are having a different symbols so each groups of them are needed to put their own gods marks on their forehead so that other castes group of people can know which caste he or she belongs to.

Every villages and cities are filled with the idols temples.

They even having a saying like this : “where there is no temple don’t even go to live there.” people don’t know about who is the only one real God they need to know Jesus is the true living God. We are preaching the Gospel here. Many times we were spit on our face, cursed by the high caste people, slapped on our face, beaten up put into local police jail and still we never given up for preaching the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Many time we thought this was our final day. Many of our bibles many times torn up by the Hindu extremists in the villages.

We have a lots of testimonies in the past years of our ministries to many hundreds of villages in India. We are praying for writing  a book about the life living of our pastors and missionaries who are suffering for the shake of preaching the Gospel in India.

Dalits are approximately 300 million people who are deemed “untouchable” and comprise the lowest rung of the Hindu caste system. Since the origin of this system 3,000 years ago, the Dalits have lived in bondage to the code of caste. They have been unable to escape their fate and are deprived of even the most basic liberties and privileges, including the freedom to decide where to live, work and worship.

We invite you to learn more about the widespread opportunity the Lord has given us to share His love with the Dalits.

“Caste is a state of mind. It is a disease of mind. The teachings of the Hindu religion are the root cause of this disease. We practice caste ism and we observe Untouchability because we are enjoined to do so by the Hindu religion. A bitter thing cannot be made sweet. The taste of anything can be changed. But poison cannot be changed into nectar.” —B.R. Ambedkar, Dalit Activist

“In a land where every animal is worshiped, these fellow humans are treated worse than any animal, even in [the] 21st century.”

Dalits are commonly called “Untouchables.” The word “Dalit” literally means “broken” or “crushed.”

Nearly 300 million Dalits live in India today.
the four main castes are:
* Brahmins – priests and teachers
* Kshatriyas – rulers and soldiers
* Vaisyas – merchants and traders
* Sudras – laborers and servants

# The Dalits fall beneath this structure and are considered less than human. Their position in Asian society is justified by ancient Hindu religious texts such as The Laws of Manu.

# Dalits are expected to perform menial, degrading tasks that include unclogging sewers, disposing of dead bodies and cleaning latrines.
# Dalits are forced to live in separate settlements, prohibited from worshipping in temples, barred from using the village wells, and their children often denied education or made to sit in the back of the classroom.

# The Indian constitution outlaws the caste system and reserves nearly 25 percent of government jobs and university spots for Dalits. However, more than a million of these posts remain unfilled, or filled by dishonest non-Dalits.

# Even simple Dalit assertions of their lawful rights and privileges have touched off hate crimes against them by members of the upper castes. These have included rape, harassment, violence and murder.

# The average literacy rate among Dalits is approximately 37 percent. Among some Dalit communities it is a low as 10 percent.
# Every hour, two Dalits are assaulted, three Dalit women raped, two Dalits murdered and two Dalit houses burned, according to the Human Rights Education Movement of India, yet only one percent of those who commit crimes.

Immovable grace helped the leprosy women with the Blankets !

opposition for Christians in India!

These are the boards at the entrances of the villages in India put by the Hindu extremists saying, ” Other religious people are not allowed to entry in this village for converting people from Hindu.” 

We see in the Bible Paul would be saying that we are carrying His (Jesus) marks in our body. Same way I (Pastor Richard Joseph) have many times beaten up for the Gospel shake. Myself and our IGMI missionaries gone through many times of beaten up and few times gone to prison for the Gospel preaching into remote villages. In India when you got by the police they will put false cases against you so that you could not able to come out very easily.  But God’s grace we could able to be sent out to us a right people to delivered us .

When some of our missionaries were gone to unreached villages for preaching the Gospel few Hindu Extremists men are threatening these Christians not to preach the Gospel anywhere of India otherwise we will beat you and make you to walk nakedly. They were even calling them a bad names you dogs and beggars leave away from India.  They even torn their tracts and cursed them by poured on it.

At the same time there are many young women are given by their own parents publicly though after 2017 years passed there are many human welfare and women welfare organisation are there but they can not stand against it. Theses young girls are decorated like a bride and any one even her own brother or father or any kinds of people can sexually assaulted in the name of their goddesses. Then rest of their life those girls can not married and  became temple prostitutes until their death.

It came even through news https://www.facebook.com/Savarimuthu2015/videos/493068991055193/

“There is  an increasing number of attacks on Christians in India.

Based on reports from Fox News, 26 cases of religiously motivated violence were recorded in the first two months of the year, targeting Christians in the country.

According to the report, the attacks are allegedly attributed to Hindu radicals who believe that they will not be held accountable for their actions since a Hindu Nationalist is in power.

“They are wolves in sheep’s clothing. There has been an increase in attacks because these nationalists feel emboldened with [Prime Minister Narendra] Modi in power,” Jeff King, president of the International Christian Concern said.

Christians have already appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is part of the Bharatiya Janata Party or the Indian People’s Party, to take action on the rising incidence of religious persecution but have lamented the lack of action by the government to deal with the attacks.

So far, a letter was sent to Modi by eight US senators and 26 members of Congress, asking the Prime Minister to condemn the acts of persecution but so far, there has been no response.”—Christian Today .

Life from death- A real story of Pr.Joseph.

   Miracle From God-  The touch of Jesus never fails in any single people’s life of the whole human History!Pr.Joseph.S

 

Pastor Richard Joseph is chosen by God for the end time revival in India. Through his ministry God brought thousands to the kingdom of God. Pastor Richard Joseph reached thousands of villages through his ministry. He is very bold  in preaching the Gospel and in the ministry of Indian soil.

Here I am so much glad to work for the Lord and praying for the Lord should send His people to come and work for the Lord in India. Still in India I could challenge you there are so many thousands of villagers who never before heard about our Lord Jesus who He is.

WHO WILL GO FOR THIS DYING PEOPLE? Among those many people of India who do not know about the Lord Jesus .WHO WILL PREACH THAT? He is the only real Lord and savior. But through our ministry Lord is changing many people hearts.

This is really a happiest thing and you could also know how we got saved.

My dad’s  name is Joseph his father Savari Muthu was a Hindu man and his lifetime he got converted in to Roman Catholic .My dad  was helping my  grandpa in  his agriculture work. Same time he got a job as a teacher  in private school  just for 1$ in 1980’s as his monthly salary .it was not enough for him to run his family in a year 1980. He had to work in the sugar cane field and rice field flower garden plugging flowers and selling it in Market then he had to ride his bicycle for 40 miles. The very next year   1981 he was affected by T.B and hospitalized.

WE BECAME ORPHANS AT STREETS ROAMING AROUND HERE AND THERE WITHOUT ANY OF OUR PARENTS IN THE HOUSE. OUR MOM WILL BE IN THE HOUSE AT VERY LATE NIGHT. IF WE ARE LUCKY TO WAKE UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT WE COULD SEE HER WITH COVERED HER BODY BY BLANKET.WE BARELY SEE OUR PARENTS WHEN WE WERE LITTLE. OUR ELDER SISTER WOULD GET A FOOD FROM HER FRIENDS HOUSE AND FED US OR WE WOULD DRINK PUBLIC BORE WELL WATER.

We never wasted our food or cloth we would not have more than one sets of dress that also would be given by the government school freely.

I could remember the time I carried fire woods in the mountains area and cow dung all my childhood to young days by picking them up with my hands make it as a bread at walls for people to cook rice food in their fire woods.

I REMEMBERED THE TIME I WAS IN YWAM MINISTRIES I WENT WITH OUR TEAM THERE WAS A RAIN IN A REMOTE VILLAGE. I HAD TO ACT LIKE JESUS BEEN CRUCIFIED ON CROSS BY THE PEOPLE. WHEN THE RAIN STOPPED WE DID THIS DRAMA. BUT THE ROAD WAS HAVING WATER AND COW WASTE WAS ALL OVER MY FACE BECAUSE I HAD TO BE LAID DOWN. I DID IT AND ALL OUR TEAM MEMBERS ASKED ME HOW COULD YOU LAID DOWN ON COW DUNG ? IT WAS NOT A NEW THING FOR ME TO LAID DOWN ON COW WASTE BECAUSE I WAS LIVED AMONG THOSE.

I know hungry what it means and suffering what it means. Even now I would do any menial Job because I had a life before lived as an Untouchable person  in India. Now my work is to bring the people from  different sinful ways where Satan is captured many millions of people to do his menial activities. I remembered those days though I was beaten up for the Gospel I was going to preach the Gospel without eating a food for three days in a row. The reason I was not married for a long time if I martyred for the Lord (which I am wishing it ) I did not want my children to became an orphan like me lived in my childhood.

The doctor’s were given up a hope for my dad .So my mom begins to wander around like a mad woman, Is there any God who can help us? But she was searching for the good thing in all the wrong places of her known different religious rituals and practices before their idols. Finally one of my mom’s friend who was a Christian lady advised my mom by said; you are saying that you are a Christian so why don’t you try to put your trust upon our Lord Jesus once again in a different way.
                                Prophetic word From God
Then my mom decided to go with her friend to one of the Bible believing church there only 5 members were there .When the worship was going there was a prophetical word came to the people like thishere is a woman coming newly here, your husband is affected by witchcraft if you put all your trust upon the lord Jesus he will save your husband and your kids .I have chosen your family to serve the lord as a mighty instruments to preach the Gospel in India and many parts of the world. I will save your husband life.”

Then all these people were asking each other for whom was this prophetical words? Whose husband is not feeling well and affected by witchcraft? Then my mom said my husband is in bed at hospital .we don’t have a hope about my husband she said. Then all the people at church they were prayed for my mom and also they came to our house to our remote village and removed all our idol and pictures.

My mom came to my dad said everything what was happening in that prayer time at church. My dad also put all his trust upon our Lord Jesus but doctor said you need to take your husband to your home before he died because you are saying nobody for you to take care of you.
                                                              Dad Trusted The Lord
In that time very risky to hire car for my dad’s dead body if he died so my mom took him to our home. Because still in India Hindu people believe when a person die outside of their house like anywhere in the hospital they do believe the devils will be surrounding with that dead body. Some time they can attack the car when they taking those dead body so they will cut and throw the lemon fruit on their way to up to the burial or burning place(Graveyard).They think lemon can chase the devils that is why when you go to India you can see lemon in front of their car,Bike and any Vehicles inside . Even today when a person died at Hospital or accident, suicide they will not take that body to their house and from there to burial places. They still think that they can bring lots of devils into their home. For normal dead people they will bring all of their relatives and decorated them with flowers garland because they think they became god and they will protect them. So they put their pictures frame and begin to worship them with their idols as I did worship my dead grandfather before I got saved.

 

We know all the rituals in this world that are being practiced  really blindness from devil .Every day we were expecting our dad’s death we were cried every moment of our life that was our life  before our Lord touched us. We were not had a hope about my dad will be alive for next day. But we were broken in our heart and pray by putting our hands upon my dad .We were helpless by all our relatives and friends. My mom only taught us how to cry before our Lord.

After we became a believer we never go to the people for our help but we are looking up to our Father in Heaven. The Lord used some of the Christians to teach the real truth and how we have to worship our Lord Jesus spirit and truth. My mom begins to put her final trust upon Jesus and we were prayed. The Doctor’s were said to my mom that my dad will be dead soon some days now or later one month. We were very active in putting our Final trust upon the Lord Jesus so my dad was not yet dead after three months passed. We got all so excited and praying all the time in our house and the touch of Jesus never fail in any single people’s life of  the whole human History!

                                            Healing From God   

Then we were so much happy. Also my dad could not had sensation from his hip to bottom before  but now he can move his leg or stand or sit slowly he was getting his  sensation  back again in his body. My dad  was laid in his bed more than 6 months at hospital and more than 6 months at home. Our family we put all our hands upon my dad to pray for him everyday more than hour. Lord we know only you in this world .We don’t have anybody, we will do whatever you are asking us to obey for you Lord please Lord heal my dad.
We are so much learned how to plead before our Lord in our life living .I believe this is the Lord’s will about our family .We could not believe when our dad got sensation and slowly he was sitting and walking we were glad to see our dad was walking through our staff. Like a parents how glad for them to see their kids are walking we were glad to see our dad was walking as I am typing this I could not control my tears. With tears I am typing it that Now my dad is living walking more than me fast walking, doing more than me do work for the Lord and talking more than me speak it’s making me so much happier . My dad loves
Jesus very much in his life and his heart .He was reflecting Christ like characters many of the Hindu families in that village and surrounding villagers got saved. He is helping us to do the will of our father in our life. 

My dad was a Hindu drama conducting director in surrounding 30 villages before he got saved now those villagers asked my dad by saying , you are person who escaped from the dead pit . We are here to requesting you to conduct our Hindu dramas for our idol worship festivals. My dad look at them by smiling said to them if you want me to help you with anything I could I am very gladly to give you my help. But as you all know me how wrecked, broken , how bad I was how much I tried all your rituals for your gods and goddesses to help me in my dead sick bed. But none of them couldn’t come and help me.

By holding a BIBLE IN HIS HANDS said to them, THE ONE WHOM I DID NOT KNOW HE CAME TO SEARCHED ME WHEN I WAS NOT SEARCHED HIM BEFORE”. He can help you from all of your problems so I cannot do anything for your Idols. From that moment onward 1985 to now also my dad is preaching the Gospel in all of his influenced Hindu villages without any Christian organisation helps or support.

Now the Lord is asking us to work for Him so we decided to serve our God as a family .We rejected to work for the world after my schooling I gone to bible college to do my Bachelor of theology and Masters of Divinity then my brother and my older sister everybody we are in the ministry field to show the seed of the Gospel in many parts of India.

We are as a family ready to die for the Lord Jesus even today .We’ve gotten lots of opposition, persecution from the Hindu people when we went to preach the Gospel in many other villages. Because of we became a spirit filled believers from roman catholic our relatives all were hated us. We had challenged them that only we need Jesus, He is enough for us more than any rituals .He  IS  A TRUE GOD NOT A MARY IF YOU BELIEVE JESUS HE WILL HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND THE TRUTH .NOW WE HAVE PLANTED MORE THAN 7 CHURCHES WE NEED TO DO MORE FOR OUR LORD .SO WE ARE EXPECTING GREAT THINGS AND MIRACLES THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS.

NOW WE ARE 100% SERVING FOR OUR LORD .WE WILL LIVE ONLY FOR HIM AND SPEAK ONLY FOR HIM AND DIE ONLY FOR HIM.
My dad was acting before as a Hindu god’s in his villages whenever those villagers had festivals. But now my dad said to them when they were asked him to come again to organize the Hindu drama he said .sorry I cannot come because those gods and goddess were not gave me my life but only this God.(He showed them his bible ).
My dad was burdening for the kids so he took us to various village among kids he was dancing and teaching about the gospel and stories when were little .
we preached the gospel to many villages kids. Also got a much burden to serve God because we saw in a church nobody wants to come to serve the Lord. Because they ask who will take care of me? If I go to ministry nobody will be there for me to take of my family and me. But as a whole family we saw the heart of Jesus ready to use us and send us in to the field .we are ready.

Children’s VBS

Children’s VBS :  Yesuvai Nokki/Looking Unto Jesus.


This spring pastor Richard decided to expand its children’s ministry
to include a ten day Vacation Bible School (VBS) for the children of the Immovable Grace church and many of the surrounding villages. In the first two weeks of May, when the children have a break from their normal studies, Pastor Richard and the Gospel team shared the message of “Looking Unto Jesus” to 250 children between the ages of 9 and 14 (4th through 8th grade) who made the commitment to complete the VBS Junior course. Many of the younger children and their parents also listened in on the lessons. These  children, most from Hindu families, were taught from workbooks that included lessons on What Jesus Likes, Fellowship, The Good Shepherd, Obedience, Pleasing Jesus Through Our Speech, Using the Talents that Jesus Gives Us, The Primary Person In Our Lives, Through Jesus All Things Are Possible, Helping One Another, and Being A Testimony for the Lord, among other topics. The VBS teachers traveled to each village in teams of two to hold classes each day, completing 20 lessons and teaching memory
verses and new songs. One team was forced to move their VBS class from inside the village to the nearby farmers’ market location because of interference from one child’s Hindu father. In spite of this disturbance, the child whose father expects him to be the village’s Hindu priest when he grows up, continued to attend the VBS classes and was at the top of his village in his lessons. On the last day of VBS, we brought the children to the Immovable Grace church where the teachers held a VBS Looking Unto Jesus Celebration. The children watched a video of the story of Jesus and then after singing the VBS songs they had learned, each child was given their completed VBS books, attendance projects and a certificate of completion of the Junior course. Those students who had good attendance and did well on their lessons and memory verses also received a gift pack that included a New Testament Bible and a Gospel tract, as well as a toy and other items. At the end of the celebration, Pastor Richard asked the children what they learned from the VBS. They all said that they learned more about Jesus and about how He wants us to behave. One boy said, “I
 was not serious about Jesus, but through the 
VBS I learned more about Jesus and how to worship Him. I am looking forward to learning even more in my future.” 
Another child said, as tears fell from her eyes, “I used to be a bad girl. I called my mother names and did not listen to her. Through this VBS, I learned that it was important for me to obey my mother and not call her names.” After the ceremony, the children were given cookies and cold drinks before they were taken back to their villages. Even as they were leaving the children began asking when the next VBS would be. We believe that it is very important to minister to these children on a regular basis. Pastor Richard is planning to begin a weekly Kids’ Club so that these children will learn more about Jesus and how important He is to their lives, learn more about living in a way that is pleasing to the Lord and learn how to worship the Lord, pray, read the Bible and share Jesus with others. Then they will be able to share Jesus with their families:

 “And a little child shall lead them.” Isaiah 11:6. You can make a difference
in each of these children’s lives with your love and support by sowing into our ministry.

 

 

Children ministry in India! “GO” OR “SEND”

In India God has lead us to start a children ministry year 1995 . Since then God is faithfully using us among children. As I was born in India and grew here God has given me many grace to know and experience the life of a young one in India. I never wore any sandals or shoes until the day of my Bible college Bachelor of theology. The day of my graduation I should wear a shoe so I had to get it the one which was very old and next day onward I found very difficult to wear it because when i wear those it was very tight for my feet it was not my size I didn’t know how to pick the right size.

I was a very remote village boy who never have a changing cloth I have a memory of wearing Government school uniform dress which has a many holes in my back of my trouser. So I was not too comfortable with hanging with people or going many times outside.

But when I was 4 to 5 years I drowned into the large river water that river was built by Bennie hock who sold his property in USA built that river dam because of him seeing many times people huts are damaged and many lives died by the flood water in Tamil Nadu India. It is very concrete one in that river water I was sinking in there my heart said I am going to die and I am on my way to hell. Jesus if you save me I will love for you as long as the day I live on this earth. There was a lady unexpectedly came there who knows how to swim she saved me by pulling my hair. From the day onward I would talk with God by looking up at air. Lord I know you are real I don’t know where you are but I know you can hear me and see me.

Then year 1986 I got a wonderful opportunity to touch first time of Bible. So I started reading it I like proverbs and psalms very much as I read it. I like History very much because up to my high school I was an excellent student of History so when I begin to read Genesis it was opened my eyes to see how God created this universe.

I started trusting God by reading the Bible than any other channel. I started seeing God moving through lives and Miracles and wonders. I come to encounter with demonic spirit in my own life. I would run to the wells or grave every single night. I was having bone fever every single year i was peace less then I realize only if i read Bible and pray to God i would have peace in my heart. Otherwise I would be like mental disorder person.

I was helping to my mom in finding fire wood and making cow waste bread by my hands for her to cook food, I was not like other children because all of my children were boasting about their idols how arrogant they are and how bad they are so people will be obey them with fear and trembling. But I would share the Gospel to them Jesus is the one who died for our sins rather than we would take our punishment.

Many of my friends believed but some of them are serving the Lord in India.

Our farmer president respected Nehru said , “Today’s children’s are the tomorrow’s leaders.”

India with 1.21 billion people constitutes as the second most populous country in the world, while children represents 39% of total population of the country.It is estimated that more than 400,000 street children in India exist.

In front of our own eyes you have to take your hands and worship our gods. So I went inside to their temple took my hands like worshiping their idols but I said to Jesus who is in my heart “Jesus you are in my heart though I am taking  my hands toward this idols they are not my god but you only my true living God. I am not worshiping this stone but I worship you only.” she said me my parents thought that I worshiped their gods .
