Animals Make a World of Difference for Widows in India

One of our partners, Friends Needing Friends, is a widow's ministry headquartered in Florida. For six years this amazing community of women have generously supported 18 KGM widows in India. Every year FNF has also sponsored a Christmas party for these widows complete with lunch, gifts and a program. This Christmas because of Covid-19, the widows in India are experiencing their worst economic hardship in years. 

In good times these women and their children survive on as little as $1.90 a day. Now with the pandemic to contend with, the future of these families looks bleaker than ever before. The fear of disease is keeping employers unwilling to re-open; the well-to-do won't allow domestic help to enter their homes. Many of these widows are disabled. Unlike America, most Indian citizens have no government safety net to fall back on. It's even worse for widows; help from the outside is their only hope...

From the Mission Field l Feed a Family for a Lifetime

Food for a Lifetime

Did you know India ranks number one in countries where poverty is likely to rise the most due to Covid-19? (Brookings Institution) Sending food kits worked during the lockdown, saving many lives. But India's severe economic downturn and crushing job loss could last indefinitely. We need a better, long-term, sustainable way to restore hope to thousands of struggling families.

Chickens Change Lives

Pastor Saha sent this video from the mission field where Sabin Raj, a KGM family member, shows how he raises chickens in his backyard. This has made a world of difference for him and his family: food security, extra income, and most of all a hopeful future. Like many small business owners, Sabin started small and grew his business. Today his 5 hens produce 300 eggs a month and chicks to sell at market that provide a reliable food source for his family and a steady stream of monthly income. He also raises ducks and goats.

 And it all started with a handful of chickens. 

Many of our Kerusomen pastors, widows, and daily wage laborer families are suffering from crushing job loss and rising food prices caused by the pandemic. In good times these families survive on as little as $1.90 a day.  Now with factories shuttered, construction halted, and the tourist industry decimated, the future of these families looks bleaker than ever before. The fear of disease is keeping employers unwilling to re-open; the well-to-do won't allow domestic help to enter their homes, Unlike America, Indian citizens have no government safety net to fall back on. Help from the outside is their only hope...

Reaching the Unreached Oral Cultures in India l Kerusomen Gospel Ministries

  Kerusomen's Bible Storytelling Movement 

Reaching the Unreached Oral Cultures in India

Imagine if you did not know how to read the Bible because it was not printed in your native language.  Or what if you never had the opportunity to go to school so you never learned how to read. How would you come to know the truth in God's Word?

Many people in India don't have to imagine this scenario - they are living it. 

  • India has over 19,500 mother tongue dialects. Few have Bible translations in their heart language.
  • Make no mistake, these are intelligent men, women, and children who either can't read and write or who simply prefer to learn by hearing because they have done it for generations. They comprehend and remember what they hear and they are able to wrestle with spiritual truth.  
So, how do we reach them with the Good News?  

Let's imagine that someone showed you an image representing a story from the Bible, told you that story in your own heart language, and did it in a compelling way. Just like Jesus did. Would that make a difference? 

You bet it would. Suddenly a whole new world of Truth would open up for you. Truth that could change your life...for eternity.

Kerusomen Gospel Ministries invites you to take a look at a new way you can reach the unreached in India and spread the Gospel message farther and faster than ever before...

Restoring Hope l KGM Stands By Families Fighting Extreme Poverty

  Unlocking Opportunity for KGM Families Battling Poverty in India After the Lockdown

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve seen the widows and families we serve display remarkable courage and tenacity. 

We’ve also seen them face difficult choices: risk disease or poverty; resign or reach out for help.

Earlier you helped us in the lockdown emergency that left millions in India shut-in and starving. Now as the lockdown lifts, our KGM family is facing new obstacles: crushing job loss and skyrocketing food prices. Pastors, widows, and day-laborers alike have watched the life they knew and their future hopes vanish overnight.

We discussed the situation with Pastor Saha. The obvious short-term solution is to send more food relief packages.  But how long would that last? A few weeks or months at best. We wanted a more permanent plan. One that would provide income BUT require little or no training. An opportunity that even a disabled widow could manage. Even to us, that criteria seemed pretty impractical until...
