In India, there are hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions that have the dreaded disease of leprosy. Leprosy bacteria attacks peripheral nerves, which causes the loss of feeling. Wounds and burns get infected and the victims are often too poor to get medicine, to fight infections. When this fearsome disease is left untreated, the end result can be permanent disfigurement and physical disabilities such as the loss of toes and fingers. The victims may develop poor eyesight and even blindness. This disease is often called the 'living death' because of its appalling effects on the victim's body. These unfortunate people are called untouchables by their society, and are regarded by others as low-caste people.

This leper's eyes are oozing and his hands and feet are deformed. He has lost most of his eyesight.
This elderly man with leprosy was homeless. Unfortunately, time ran out for him, and he died, probably never realizing there was a cure for leprosy.

Many of these lepers have been tragically abandoned by their families and cast out into the streets or in other unpleasant situations because of their frightful disease. Overall, the sad reality is that they are left alone to suffer and die in their terrible state, heartbroken and emotionally shattered because they have no one to love or care for them.

    These unfortunate men and women are what can be called the poorest of the poor, and have no hope of ever building a future for themsleves. The only way they can even get their next meal is by begging and hoping that someone will have mercy on them to give them even a coin, so they can buy cheap and tasteless food to fill their empty stomachs. Many homeless lepers do not even have a blanket to lay on or even cover themselves on the cool and rainy nights.

They don't have sandals to protect their feet which causes more infections which causes flies to cluster around their open sores. Many of them do not even know that there is a cure for leprosy, and if they did, they probably could not possibly afford to obtain the medicine to stop their disease. Many doctors will not even touch them. People in their society think that they have been cursed by the gods for something they had done in a past life and now they fully deserve what they are going through now. Jesus is their only hope and you and I must be His arms of love reaching out to them. We are their only hope in this life...

The pastors and missionary Kathy invited this homeless man with leprosy into their van to hear the Gospel. After hearing about Jesus, he is praying the sinner's prayer.

Independent Church In India's has purchased by God's grace an eleven acre piece of land, and construction to build homes of compassion have begun for victims of leprosy. ICII has begun constructing a ten room home for twenty leprosy residents. Here these leprosy friends can lead a normal life and even work. They can live the rest of their lives here feeling wanted and live without starving or begging and they can feel the love of Jesus in their lives. At their new home healthy food and water, medical care, clothes, personal needs, and lots of love and tender care is provided. Our vision is to provide many more relaxing and loving homes for these precious people that have never had any care their whole life. We want to provide the care and the love they are longing for.

Pray with us that the Lord will provide more homes of compassion, a church (which will also have a kitchen with a dining hall, a medical center, and all needs for "The Promise Land" Homes of Compassion Leprosy Community. Please pray about what the Lord would have you do to help Independent Church in India (ICII) to continue to build these homes. ICII's true heart's desire is to provide for their needs, and teach them spiritual truths. ICII wants to make sure that every leper they meet will know the love of Jesus and realize they are no longer an untouchable, but precious in the Lord's sight. Help us to build them a home filled with Christ's like love and help them to realize for the first time in their life that they are loved. You can change a dark world of a leper into one of new life and hope in Jesus Christ...

Udaiyammal - A Hopeless Leper Finds Hope...
United States missionary Kathy A Smith and Pastor Britto from Independent Church In India visit a remote village to preach the Gospel and to help a poor widow with the horrible disease of leprosy, who is utterly struggling to provide for her orphan grandson. After hearing the Gospel and witnessing the Christ-like love and compassion of these missionaries by putting medicine on her leprosy wounds and wrapping up her feet, many in the village including Udaiyammal are touched and commit their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ.

"For I was an hungred,and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me" Matthew 25:35-40.
