International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted l Kerusomen Gospel Ministries

Join Kerusomen Gospel Ministries and Pray for India

November 3, 2019

Open Doors, an advocate for persecuted Christians around the world writes: 
"This International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) is the time for Christians to pray with their brothers and sisters in India. India recently moved into the top 10 on the Open Doors World Watch List of the most dangerous countries in the world for Christians. Believers in India are often shunned, unjustly arrested, attacked—even killed—because they choose to follow Jesus and not Hinduism or the local religion. Our Indian family needs the prayers of the global church this IDOP to stand strong in the midst of persecution—and to remain a light for Christ in the world’s second-most populated country."
In the six states Kerusomen has churches, there has been a 77.5% increase in incidents of persecution reported... 

Fast Your Birthday and Change Lives

Facebook Birthday FAST for Kerusomen Gospel Ministries

Imagine: Your Birthday a Blessing

Just by skipping your birthday...

That's what Maureen did this year. By giving up (fasting) her birthday to rescue widows in India, she raised a total of $315 dollars. (including personal checks sent directly to her). This was nearly enough to provide 2 widows food and medicine aid FOR A YEAR.

Pray for India / Kerusomen Gospel Ministries

Want to Change the World? Pray.

If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.  - John 14:14  

Billions of people are living in India today without having a saving relationship with Jesus. Billions. Unless something changes.
We call them the "unreached" or "unengaged".  We hear the statistics and wonder: "What can I do? "
When Jesus was confronted with our dilemma, He saw the "multitudes" and He called them "sheep without a shepherd" and felt "compassion" for them.  Then He told His disciples:  "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."   Matthew 9: 35-38
Four things jump out in these verses:  First, when Jesus saw the multitudes He called them "sheep without a shepherd".  He personalized them. These were real people with real faces who were really lost without Him. Second, He felt "compassion".  He really cared about them because He really understood them.  Third, He commanded us to pray in a certain way: "earnestly".  Synonyms for earnestly are strongly, deeply, intensely, seriously and industriously. Finally, Jesus focused first on the opportunity: "the harvest is plentiful".      
Putting Jesus words into practice when praying for our KGM family in India and their mission to reach the "unreached" means getting personal.  Really caring enough to generate true emotion, compassion and empathy as we cry out to God for them with persistence and passion. Knowing that only God can change their situation. 
Prayercast has a beautiful, moving prayer on video that can jumpstart us on our journey to adopt God's heart for His lost people in India. It combines music and stunning visuals of the Indian people and places. As we watch and pray along with an Indian pastor who knows the desperate needs of his country and its people, may our hearts be broken and stirred to a new passion and urgency.   
Prayer is the first and most critical step in reaching the people of India with the Gospel. We know this intellectually in our head - may God shift it to our heart.

How God is Moving In Kerala, India / Kerusomen Gospel Ministries

 KGM Growing Strong in the Lord  

Update from Pastor Saha on the ministry challenges and progress in Kerala.

Kerala, located on the Southwest coast of India, is the home state of Kerusomen Gospel Ministries. This is where Sahayadas (Saha) Simon and his wife Anju planted their first church and formally launched their ministry in 2007.

It is the most densely populated state in India with 1,300 people per square mile[1]To put that in perspective, there are nearly 100 more people per square mile in Kerala than there are in America’s most densely populated state, New Jersey. Kerala is just twice the size of New Jersey.

Since the state of Kerala is the hub of the KGM ministry in India, its people, their history, and its current political and religious climate play an important role in the ministry's outreach...

Christian Widows Movement Serves Jesus at Home and Abroad

Friends Needing Friends: Turning Tragedy into Hope for India Widows

Dorothy Ackerman is a champion for widows. When Dotti lost her husband in 1986, she was discouraged to discover that there were no growth groups for widows - anywhere. Not even at church. Out of her tragedy, in 1988, Friends Needing Friends was born. 

At first, Friends Needing Friends was a small group of 10 women, bonded by their desire to love, support, and encourage one another during this new phase of life called widowhood. Thirty-one years later, their message of God's special love for widows circles the globe, impacting the lives of over 50,000 widows in 20 different countries through its FNF blog. God also uses this sisterhood in a very tangible way to bring His message of hope to widows in India...

Mission Impossible? Reaching the Unreached in India / Kerusomen Gospel Ministries

460,000 Villages in India Have No Known Christian Presence

With all our technology, wealth and passion for the lost, there are still millions of people who don't know a single Christian who can share with them the Good News of Jesus.

But all of our freedom and easy access to information makes it hard for us to imagine that millions of people born in India, will live their lives and die, never knowing anything about Jesus. Not because they don't care.  But because they don't have a choice. Nobody ever told them. They have minimal, if any, Christians or Christian resources in their villages. These 1.3 billion Indians will never hear about Jesus, even if they want to. Unless something changes.

But What About Global Missions?

Won't they reach these people? Take a peek at the must-see video above. As you watch, keep in mind this sobering fact: 22,500 people in India will die today, most of them never...

The Hungry Children of NW Haiti - Kerusomen Gospel Ministries

The Gift of Hope - Wrapped in a Hot Lunch

More Than a Meal for Children in Northwest Haiti

Almost all of us have experienced a tornado, or hurricane, or fire or something that has created a desperate situation. Living without our normal comforts - electricity, clean water, fresh food - even for a short time, is miserable. Sadly, the people in Northwest Haiti live in that desperation every day of their lives. 

Kerusomen Gospel Ministries partners with Living Water Ministries of the Palm Beaches in their outstanding School Lunch Program for Children living in Northwest Haiti. Poor diet is one of the major health problems in this region. Currently, LWM, with its partners, provides a hot, cooked meal each day at school to 4,500 students in 30 different schools. 

Take a trip to a remote village in Northwest Haiti with Sherissa, a volunteer for Living Water Ministry. In the film you will see a school being built, experience the excitement of the children and villagers, hear the dreams of a native pastor, and get a glimpse of what the love of Christ can do through you - with the gift of a hot lunch.
