Native Missionary Movement: Update from the Chidren’s Home & School in Navapur
Dear NMM Friends,
Many communities in Northern India have toiled hard for generations simply to survive. Some men and women haven’t had the privilege of pursuing an education themselves, and they are helpless to give one to their children.
But God loves these children deeply, and He is working in part through NMM children’s homes to give them a chance for a better future.
NMM child sponsorship gives more than 1,000 needy children a daily meal and regular medical checkups for their physical health and development. The program also helps the children with their education so they can one day get a good job and afford enough food, decent clothing, medical supplies, and other necessities of life for themselves and their families. Beyond this, these homes provide the children with opportunities to pursue and even excel in their God- given skills and interests.
You can make an incredible difference in the lives of children and their Sponsor a child families through NMM children’s homes. When you sponsor a child, you for $25 a month. bring hope and encouragement to a family and help break the cycle of poverty. Your support gives a child and his family a far brighter future.
Through our children’s homes, God is enabling these children to become all they possibly can be so they can be a blessing in the future to many others throughout Northern India. Millions of children in India live life never knowing the hope that awaits them in Christ. However, through NMM children’s homes, they get to learn for the first time what it’s like to have new life and be embraced by their Heavenly Father.
Thank you for your financial support and prayers that allow many to experience incredible love!
Joy Punnoose NMM President
The past academic year was a wonderful experience for everyone at Navapur’s Home of Hope & School. We thank God for all the staff, teachers, and volunteers who worked hard and loved the kids. Without this team, we would not be able to achieve our goal of giving Jesus to the little ones before they leave Home of Hope.
Guda is a village in Alirajpur District of Madhya Pradesh. It has a population of around 4,000 people with a very poor literacy rate of 5%. Pr Edubhai Chouhan, who ministers in this village, was blind from birth. His parents took him to many places hoping to cure his blindness, but all was in vain. Deperate about these failed attempts, Edubhai decided to commit suicide; but that failed too.
Hearing of Edubhai’s plight, a pastor visited him, shared the Gospel, and prayed for him. Miraculously, Edubhai was healed and saw the light of this world for the first time! Submitting to Christ, he began spreading Good News in his village. Suddenly, Edubhai found himself in the midst of trouble and rejection. His kith and kin became his enemies, forcing him and his family to leave their home. They took shelter under a tree for eight months before moving into a small hut Edubhai made himself.
The villagers forbade them drinking water for becoming followers of Christ. So they had to travel to ten different locations to collect water for their daily use. But NMM’s drilling of a tube well by Edubhai’s hut was God’s boon to this family. It not only serves Edubhai and his family—but the villagers too! Edubhai has been truly reflecting Christ in the midst of rejection by society.
