Earlier this year our church responded to the joint No limits / Missionary Ventures special appeal to help over 500 struggling families across the states of Telengana and Andhra Pradesh in India. No limits and Missionary Ventures were able to send an amazing £10,500 and the churches distributed ‘love packages’ to vulnerable families who had been impacted economically by the pandemic. It was such a blessing and as most of the families were non-Christian it opened many previously-closed doors to the wonderful good news of Jesus.
Another appeal is being launched now, but this time it is different. There is a large number of Pastors and Evangelists who are struggling to provide for their families as their churches are not yet meeting due to the threat of the virus and therefore are not receiving any income. The stories are heartbreaking. Husbands and wives not eating in order to give their children something; urgent medicines and treatments being delayed indefinitely due to lack of ability to pay.
Acts 11 describes a severe famine affecting most of the Roman-occupied territories in the Middle East. The church in Antioch didn’t debate why the disaster was happening or what God might be saying or doing through it. They simply decided to raise funds and send it to the brothers in the worst-hit area (Judea) via Barnabas and Paul.
‘Antioch’ call is being made today in order to help the faithful and committed brothers and sisters in leadership in India in their time of extraordinary need. Please prayerfully consider what you might be able to give. Anything from a Mite to a Mighty amount would be gratefully received.
