Why Churches Change Everything
Tribal village churches in India don't look like ours. They are often in a home. Like this one in Punjab, a few miles from the border of Pakistan.
But what they look like doesn't matter. Because what they DO is change everything.
Here's four ways they change lives:
Women, raised to consider themselves as worthless, become empowered through church driven educational and vocational training programs. They contribute to the household income receiving honor and respect in their home and in their village.
Children who would drop out of school are encouraged to complete their education and their parents receive support from church-run Vacation Bible School and English classes.
Outcasts of society, like widows, receive food and healthcare aid, companionship, encouragement, and vocational training opportunities. Even more important, they are welcomed back into the community as valued, cherished members.
Yes, all over the globe churches change everything. That's why we plant them. In fact, it's why we're passionate about it.
Every month members of The Builders community are helping to enlarge the Kingdom in India, one church at a time. You can transform lives, too.
