Brother Francis Pereira is not only a native of India, he's a missionary there as well! Each year, Spread the Fire Ministries leads outreach teams to various parts of India to minister to the needy, evangelize to the lost, and pray for the anointing of the Holy Spirit on the whole of Asia. Each mission trip is uniquely designed to have the highest impact while still offering the participants a chance to enjoy the culture of Asia.
A tribal church in Assam (the northeast part of Asia) needs to complete their church building project. This is a predominantly Hindu area, but the Lord has been pouring out His Spirit, and many tribal people are being saved! The church building is partially finished, but $15,000 is still needed to provide this church body with a place to worship. About 70 Christians, some traveling a great distance, use this church building. The $15,000 would include plastering, wiring, painting, sound system, and furniture.
If you can partner with us in helping us complete this project, please contact us.
Building communities of Love with hope to be transformed from the inside with strength and new vigour in moving ahead in life with purpose value and Destiny.
It is estimated that over 80% of India's population does not have access to clean drinking water. Indians regularly drink water from lakes, ponds and rivers. This is the same water used for bathing, laundry and watering cattle.
This reality is especially true for rural villages. In a mostly rural Indian state, there are over 3,000 villages without a water source! Rural Indian women spend an average of four hours a day collecting and purifying drinking water. According to The World Health Organization, Asia's water shortage is expected to worsen in the coming years. Fresh water is indeed a commodity that represents an urgent human need. Its supply represents a life-giving place of importance in the affairs of Indian village governments and their various functions.
Fresh water saves lives!
SPREAD THE FIRE Ministries believes that the expression of Jesus has to be in both word and deed. We present the gospel in word and through acts of kindness that can greatly help them. In India, most life-threatening disease stems from impure drinking water which is collected from ponds, canals, and rice paddies–the same water used for bathing, laundry, and watering cattle. A fresh-water well is a gift to people of all castes. Each time a villager draws clean drinking water, they encounter these words in their language, "Touching the world with the love of Jesus." The gift of a fresh-water well is truly a gift that keeps on giving.
Thirst-quenching clean water
Spread the Fire Ministries drills fresh-water wells that supply clean, running water to support the daily water needs of an entire village. If you or your church would like to sponsor a well, the cost is $1,600. Contact Spread the Fire Ministries for more information.
