Dear Friends and supporters 

Here at Bethany Mission Society India we are very much thankful that God is using our ministry to spread the love of God to reach the unreached people with the good news of Jesus Christ and bringing the people to the kingdom of God. 

At the end of the 2020, I express my sincere gratitude to all the friends and financial supporters for your continued prayers and generous support to Gods work in India. 

Even in the midst of global pandemic crisis , God has been faithful and did not withheld his goodness from us in providing our needs. we felt, we saw, we experienced and testify Gods marvellous goodness in our lives constantly. Whenever we were downcast , discouraged and almost doomed, God intervened into it and promised , I am not yet done with you all and my promises are true for evermore. 

Just I encourage you all to give thanks unto the Lord. We have so much to be grateful for in this year each and every day. Have a heart of thanksgiving. Just pause and give thanks for all that God has done and continues to do in our lives. I encourage to trust God and choose faith in God alone, He will help you to go through whatever situation you are in or you face in the future. No matter what you see and what you feel , just choose to trust God, because Gods faithfulness never disappoint us and his goodness never fail us. 

““The global pandemic provided us vast opportunities to spread the love of God and to feed  and food supplies to many families, homeless and street children, to provide medical care and sanitary needs to those who were abandon by the family members due to virus fear. Many hindu professed people and police officers who troubled us earlier   received help from us and glorified God and attending the churches. I am very much thankful to friends, churches and many organisations  especially Go Internationals Wilmore based to provide monthly support  to feed the hungry and provide medical supplies and sanitary needs. 

Even in the midst of financial hardship God helped us to begin the construction for 3 church building and community halls and hoping to finish it up and dedicate for the glory of God in 2021. 

With the support from Cattles for Christ Internationals,  3 water wells were installed to provide safe waters to those who considered by the people as  untouchable communities and not allowed to take water from public wells  and also who were excommunicated from the local wells  for  accepting Jesus Christ

With the support from Cattles for Christ Internationals, 10  families were blessed with cattles to help the families to earn their bread  

We were able to distribute 5000 blankets to the poor and elderly people in Christmas season 

3265 people were baptised and added to the kingdom of God through our church plants, 10, 000 bibles were distributed , 3 church planting training centres with 120 church planters trainees in operational and ready for graduation April 2021. 

100 ministry enhancement tools ( PA systems were distributed) 

As we look to 2021, we need your support more than ever before.  We hope to continue the work of the Lord with great intensity. We want give gospel- centered  hope in an uncertain world by word and deed. But we need your help greatly. We paused for a moment to thank God for every one who prayed for us, helped us, supported us, loved us, walked with us and stood with us all through the year. Just we want to thank you all for your generous support to spread the love of God in India and beyond. We pray and wish A Happy and blessed New Year 2021. May Gods peace and presence be with you.

Hunger and Homelessness in India due to COVID-19

I am reaching with this post to express my sincere gratitude for the financial support received from the friends, supporters and churches to help the people to have food and other essentials in this challenging times. COVID-19 global pandemic is rapidly spreading in India and disrupting the lives of the people. 1.6 million people infected with Corona virus in India as on today.  36,000 people died with virus.  India is the second largest populated country in the world with 1.4 billion people. The medical facilities for the large number of people were very limited. In India, the doctors to population ratio is 1:1425 which is considerably low when compared to the minimum recommended doctor to population ratio of 1:1000 set by WHO. There are only 37,725 health centres with 740,000 hospital beds. Due to this high shortage of medical facilities, infected people cannot be accommodated in the hospitals and people are dying on the streets and roads.Here is the link for more info: https://www.newindianexpress.com/states/andhra-pradesh/2020/jul/20/andhra-covid-19-patient-dies-on-road-after-abandoned-by-scared-auto-driver-2172041.html 

Dead bodies pile up at mortuaries and nobody wanted to do the funerals due to fear of spread of the virus. https://www.newindianexpress.com/states/andhra-pradesh/2020/jul/13/bodies-pile-up-at-mortuary-as-locals-prevent-victims-last-rites-2169003.htmlInfected people and their family members were stigmatised and being excommunicated from the communities and the apartment owners are demanding to vacate the houses and apartments without any prior notices. Even doctors and nurses facing stigma and asked to vacate their rented apartments.https://www.livemint.com/news/india/doctors-nurses-face-stigma-over-coronavirus-asked-to-vacate-rented-homes-11585074366997.html . This phenomenon resulting in high percentage of homelessness and people are forced to live under the trees, streets and road sides  and looking for the help. Lockdowns has robbed the Daily wage workers of their earnings  are suffering without work and food for their families.  

With the financial support  and generosity from friends, churches and mission organisations  we are helping  people with food and other essential supplies to the families to survive in this global  crisis. We are helping the workers like barbers and other small business owners to have  sanitary supplies like disinfectant lotions, sanitary bars, face masks and gloves to continue their work and earn money for the families. We are training our ministers and our school teachers  online  on how to  help the people during this crisis  and bringing awareness on  prevention of  the spread of the  virus. We were  slowdown in mobility due to the lockdown restrictions in our city  but we came to know that  that God is bringing people to our neighbourhood.  Many people are coming to us these days to get the grocery packs as we distributed for many months since lockdown. Due to the homelessness, many people got shelter at banquet hall across our church building and we are given opportunity to help these dislocated people with food supplies and other essentials.

I am glad that  Bethany Mission  became Bethlehem for the people to have bread.  

I strongly believe that we are all called out for a time such as this. God has put us on this earth and placed us where we are and with the people and we are with for a reason. 

I see this crisis as a greatest opportunity for us to show the love of God and sow the seeds of compassion and mercy and fulfil the plans of God for our lives. Thanking you again for helping us to help the people.  Still people are waiting to get help. Your help is highly appreciated  and and your help is matter to us
