The Battle Ground
Nepal, Burma, India, and Bangladesh
We anticipate the needs going forward as the virus (hopefully and prayerfully) subsides. We are organizing a Post-COVID Relief Plan. There are long-term effects of COVID that we are seeing now with these variants. There are lot of complications post-disease like extreme fatigue, lethal fungal infections, palpitations, brain fog, and blindness, to name a few. As the needs continue, we will dedicate Alpha Ministries to be the help, hope and healing.
Battling the Truth
God gifted both of my parents, Pastor Cherian and Grace, with the ability to see people through the Lord’s eyes. During their time on earth, my parents devoted their entire lives to the needs of the poor and the hurting in India, so that the lost could know a loving Savior in Jesus Christ. The two were indeed one of a kind. Thank you for your outpouring of kindness and support as my family and I grieve the loss of my beautiful mother, Grace Mathews. John Lennox once said of his own parents, that their ‘…faith was authentically lived out at home.’ My siblings and I can testify that this too was true in our home. My mother was always willing to meet the most urgent needs around her regardless of the source of people’s pain. Her vision was not just to meet physical needs but through various forms of helping, to point every person to a hope found only in knowing and understanding Jesus Christ. During this troubled time of the COVID surge that is sweeping Asia, the immediate needs are so great and entire families have been affected by COVID death, hospitalization, and loss of income related to increasing poverty from the worsening health and economic crises. The truth of Christ is needed to battle the hopelessness that these people are feeling. Your prayers are deeply needed. Please help us continue my mom Grace’s vision of reaching others by considering a memorial gift that would go directly to those suffering and impoverished. Thank you in advance for your prayers and financial support. God’s blessings upon you and deep appreciation for considering partnering with us.
