Urgent and pressing material needs of the congregations and institutions we serve in the Field of Harvest in Southeast rural India.
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. James 5:16
By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. – John 13:35
It is Our Father’s desire to be of service to one another. There is no poverty and misery on earth as is seen and experienced by low caste Christians in India. While many Americans discuss the virtue of looking after ourselves in our own backyard first and foremost, the church in India despite institutional persecution and deep need, continues to explode in growth. The drawback is that they are dependent upon the love of the brethren in more affluent nations to supply their basic needs. On this page we will list those material things that are of pressing need and require provision for the purpose of the laborers in the harvest in India, to be useful tools for the purpose to which they are serving and have been Called. Please join us in prayer that The Father in Jesus’ Name would provide these needful things to the brethren in India:
• Air conditioning unit for Pastor John Gampala. He suffered a major heart attack in January and currently the heat and humidity is creating difficulty for him to breathe.
• Ashram building for 40 Widows. Asking for prayers for provisions to build an Ashram or widows apartments on property already purchased by the Gampalas. No cost estimate as yet.
• Prayers for healing for many maladies, diseases and sickness among members suffering from everything from kidney stones to TB.
• Funding to meet rising costs of caring for 160 children. Hebron back in 2012 cared for 210 children on a full-time basis, providing meals, schooling and healthcare. Due to shortfalls in income, the numbers of orphans Hebron has been able to care for has been steadily decreasing to 160 in 2014. There is a monthly shortfall of about $2,500.00 per month that is reducing the provisions to very basics.
• Completion of building a vocational nursing school at a cost of about $38,000 U.S. Once completed an official from the Indian parliament has offered Sagar and Hebron a federal subsidy for the purpose of teaching a marketable skill to the rural Indians in Southeast Andrha Pradesh. The subsidy will be enough that Hebron will be able to operate internally should economic conditions worsen in the USA.
Prayer is the most important investment we can make that Our Father would open doors to provide for these needs.
