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

In India God has to 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 much 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 has a changing cloth I have a memory of wearing a Government school uniform dress which has 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 the 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 the air. Lord, I know you are real I don’t know where you are but I know you can hear me and see me.

The then year 1986 I got a wonderful opportunity to touch the first time of the 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 the Bible and pray to God I would have peace in my heart. Otherwise, I would be like a mental disorder person.

I was helping to my mom in finding firewood 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 tomorrow’s leaders.”

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

  • In one village one of the 11-year-old girls said me, Anna (my older brother ) my parents they were found out me that I am no longer worshipping their idols so they pulled me inside their temple and forced me to bow down and take hands towards their idols. 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 worshipping 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 worshipping this stone but I worship you only.” she said me my parents thought that I worshipped their gods. They did not know to whom I worshipped but I only know to whom I prayed that is my Jesus.

Leprosy Widow Felt First Time Real Love !

SHE WAS TASTED REJECTION HATRED NOW SHE IS TESTIFYING ABOUT JESUS TO HER FRIENDS WHO ARE AFFECTED BY LEPROSY IN INDIA!

KANI is a mother of 5 children when she got leprosy her children chased her out from her own house. She already lost her husband through a bus accident. Now she is nowhere to go. So she started begging at the street and stay in a Government Leprosy colony. There she heard about Jesus when the Immovable Grace team went there. Now she is filled with happiness in her face and said, “Lord Jesus this world gave me how to be a sad person but you made me as a Happy person. I will live for you and share your happiness in this world.”
She needs your prayers and love so that she will be not only fed and taken care off but also she can preach the Gospel to her leprosy friends in her colony! She living for Jesus and a good prayer warrior!
We have seen already she is talking about the Lord what He has done for her. Her friends are amazed to see how her face has been changed and filled with happiness from Jesus!

KANI NEEDS:

  • Kani need regular medical help
  • Food and medical aid
  • She needs a monthly help!
  • Monthly 30 $ will be cover her expenditure for her to have needs to be met. She will pray for you!
  • Leprosy is a disease that affects the skin and nerves then slowly it makes paralyzes of a person and makes them blind and slowly shut down the human.
    Immovable Grace has been visited and preaching the Gospel to more than 25 leprosy colonies in INDIA where each colony has a minimum of 250 lepers who never felt the Love before in their life.
    Poorest of the poor Leprosy need your prayers and help!
    Jesus cleanse the lepers many of the lepers they were chased out from their own home by their own children because of the social Stigma!

     

  • Many hundreds of lepers need to hear the Gospel and need your help.
    In Many leprosy colonies, even the doctors won’t touch them because of their Hindu belief if a person affected by leprosy that means he/she much be done very worst sin in the previous birth of their past life. So no one is allowed to help them.
    When we preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus they started believing it and they also feel loved.
    We need your prayers for this leprosy who desperately needs your love help!
    You could meet their medical needs or good food, blankets, rice and lentils or fruits and vegetables some of them are not having shoes (when they walk on a hot road in India they didn’t feel the hot but many of their foot become septic because of the nail was punctured their bottom of the foot.
    Many of their children need educational help and a water system for their colonies. We pray the Lord would use you among them Mightily!
    Harvest is plenty but the laborers are few!
    In India, many of the leprosy villages people are abandoned by the societies. Many of them need your Love!
    We need your help to reach out to these precious people who lost their hope. These people never felt someone who died for them and resurrected on the third day unless we go to them and share the love of Jesus. Would you go to them or send your help to those who are going to reach them. We believe the Lord is the one who directs towards IGMI for reason.
    You can come and share the Gospel to them and If the Lord called you to visit these precious people you are invited to show the seeds on this faithful ministry.  We are not a large organization or big people we are ordinary people who called by our Lord to do His work among wherever people who are rejected by the societies and communities we go to them to preach the Gospel.

    Jesus loves the forgotten people who are affected by leprosy!
God is calling you to serve among these leprosy people who will go for me? To whom shall I  send ? will you be the one whom God is searching around this Globe ? can you ask God. Lord, why can’t I be me for this great work?
When you read a Bible Lord loves the needy and the one who is in the dust and people who were forgotten by this world. Would you be Jesus for these people today?

It is easy to preach but how many of us really wanted to live rather than preaching. The one who doesn’t do he will preach about it, but the one who does it will he act and live on it. So will you be the one who acts and live for the Lord? God wanted to see the fruit of your season not from somebody else. He really searching for you towards these leprosy people in India. You can directly involve to this ministry no any resistance or conditions but consider if you wanted to travel for such a long distance how could you see them without doing anything like before your eyes you will see them are suffering and hurt by the pain how would you feel that you didn’t do anything to help them?

So if you are coming for the mission please feel free to write and we would like to receive you.

We need more people in the States to do a fundraiser for these people. So in anyway, you could do that we would like to welcome you to do for us.

Leprosy in India receiving the Gospel. We need more prayer partners for our Mission!

We also need Bibles, New testaments and Spectacles.

Touch of Jesus among lepers! Will you be the Hands of Jesus among the ones who need Jesus?

 

Many hundreds of lepers are not having good health and shelter to live these precious people are living among streets, ditches area, bus stands and dust waste areas without any hope in their life. DO YOU WANT TO REACH THEM FOR JESUS?

Even Today many hundreds of lepers in leprosy colonies go out of the colonies for begging because they are not getting good medical treatment and food. I have seen many of the leprosy colonies lepers would wrapping their bandages and dressing their wounds one leprosy to another. 

IMMOVABLE GRACE is helping them with good food and giving medical aid to them.

Little by little this leprosy man loses his legs if nobody takes care of his wounds.

This leprosy man lost his legs toes and fingers he can’t do any work!

 

A lady who affected by leprosy is a very much worse situation.

Martyrs for Jesus in India!

I will live and die for Jesus !
We have one of our pastors who preach the Gospel among remote Hindu villages without any food a day. He and his wife were beaten up and the gang was chased them and beaten up our pastor’s head on that spot he died. His wife was injured and we were able to help her.
But she told me “I and the rest of my 3 children are ready to walk the way how my husband walked for Jesus.”
Right now she is doing ministry for the Lord. She told me I thought we are all alone only Jesus knows us but now we know we have people who are in His kingdom to watch over us and stand with us.
She needs 40 $ to feed her 3 children and serve the Lord faithfully.
They have changed many of the people lives in remote Hindu villages they need your prayers and love support.

WE NEED YOUR SPECIAL PRAYERS FOR OUR FRIEND GIDEON PERIYASAMY AND HIS MINISTRY AND FAMILY!

The rev. Gideon Periyaswamy was 43 and led the Maknayeem church. It was converted 25 years ago by Hinduism. In the past, he had been harassed and humiliated. The Hindus “were not happy with the increase of the Christian faithful”.

Our  Christian pastor was found dead hanged on the roof of his home in a village in Tamil Nadu. The Rev. Gideon Periyaswamy was 43 and led the church of Maknayeem, in the village of Adayachery. His death is shrouded in mystery, and the fact that just a week ago he had lodged a complaint against extremist Hindu groups was aroused. Some faithful already speak of murder and the attempt to disguise murder with suicide.

The pastor was found hanging on a rope on January 20th, 2018 At about 5 am, the body was revived by Indira and Regina, two Christians from the community who came to the church to clean the structure. The women reported that the body of the Rev. Periyaswamy hung abnormally from the ceiling, knees bent to the floor. In addition, when the police broke the knot around the neck, a cut was found under the throat, with a noticeable blood clot.

Local witnesses argue that death is due to the disagreements with local extremists, who humiliated and harassed him for years. “But he – remembers a believer – told us that we had to live in peace with our neighbors and not create grounds for disagreement”.

The pastor had converted 25 years ago from Hinduism and from 12 led the Adayachery church. The Rev. Reuben, a friend of the deceased, reports that “the local Hindus were not happy with the increase of the Christian faithful”. Despite the death threats, the pastor repeated: “I have no problems. If the Lord grants it to me, I will die a martyr for Christ, but his ministry will not end. “
