In the bustling city of Rajahmundry, India, sits a church built from caring hearts and committed funding of the people of Inland Hills Church. It all started a number of years ago with an Operation Christmas Child shoebox that was sent by a little girl in our church… and was received by a little girl in India. An exchange of letters started and before we knew it, our churches were working together.
In 2007, Pastor Andrew and his parents, Pastor Dave and Carol, traveled to India to meet Pastor Joshua where they experienced first-hand the great need in this part of the world. The Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20 tells us to go into all nations and share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Through the giving of our church family, we have been able to provide Bibles, bicycles, motor bikes, and a van for village pastors taking the Good News of Jesus Christ into jungle areas and remote villages. We have also purchased gas lanterns and fishing nets, and helped install 20 fresh water wells for village families.
One of our ongoing projects is to provide monthly support to 42 village pastors serving in remote villages. IHC has now helped build 15 churches in India. As God provides, we will continue to build additional churches for those who are currently meeting in thatched huts.
IHC has also purchased land to one day build an orphanage, hospital, chapel, and school. This ministry has grown and multiplied, since we first visited in 2007, through your prayers and giving. Thank you for your heart for the unreached in India.
