Chambur Church Rebuild and Health Center – Mumbai
This building is in such bad repair that the city of Mumbai condemned it and closed it for public use 9 years ago. It was a major church in Mumbai, having Bible Workers and pastor accommodations. But, due to financial constraints, the church has not been able to rebuild. We are envisioning a 3 story building with a center of influence/clinic on the ground floor, larger church hall on the second floor, and living/guest quarters on the top floor. All the donations that aren’t used at Sathe Nagar, will be put towards rebuilding the Chamber church!
Sathe Nagar Slum Church – Mumbai
The slums of Mumbai are the largest in Asia and we have had several Bible Workers working there for a number of years. Sathe Nagar has over 100 believers, but they do not have a church. They have been renting different churches for a while, and have been trying to raise money to build a new church for 6 years. It would cost about $20,000-$25,000 to build them a church, and it would be a great blessing to this vibrant community of believers.
2 Riot-Damaged Churches
Odisha, India. Riots broke out in 2008 and many Christian churches were damaged. Two of them were Adventist churches. This one is the worst damaged and has never been rebuilt. The second is almost as damaged. The local members are clinging to faith and begging for prayer and new churches. We have a JFA Bible Worker in the area doing the ground work, but the communities are very poor with most barely able to survive. But right now, with the churches in this condition, it’s just a reminder of the violence that took place over a decade ago. We would like to help rebuild both churches for the surviving members and to be beacons of light for the community.
11 Typhoon-Damaged Churches
Odisha, India. A major Typhoon came through and blew off the roofs of 11 churches. Now they are semi-functional or completely non-functional depending on how much of the roof is still in tact. They desperately need our help as these churches service poor communities.
All 11 churches will only cost $14,000 to repair! That’s an average of just $1,273/church.
SUD Mission Projects
Southern Asia Division Mission Projects
We have a dream of several small “Lifestyle Community Centers” in every large city in India. These centers will be places where people can come to mingle and learn, to be inspired and discipled for Jesus. Another mission project is to train “Lifestyle Coaches” to lead the ministry in these Community Lifestyle Centers. These are just two of the Southern Asia Division’s Mission projects that we are hosting. Others include: hospital and church renovations and assisting students to attend SDA schools. Please note where you would like your donation used.
Thank you for helping us help others!
