with leprosy-affected families

 Children who live at leprosy colonies in India dwell among the poorest of the poor on the face of the earth. Although they live among those with leprosy, and are at higher risk, most never contract the disease. Even so, they are considered outcasts, facing a lifetime of total rejection as an "untouchable". They have no hope of ever having an education, a good job, or a bright future. Sometimes such children are kidnapped to be sold as slaves. Many girls are forced into prostitution at a young age, and boys become thieves or drug dealers to try to escape the poverty-filled life.

Independent Church in India's Promised Land Children's Home was established with the vision to provide a loving home to children whose parents or guardians are victims of leprosy and cannot care for them.

Constructed in 2010, the home is situated on eleven acres in the lush tropical farmland at the foot of the beautiful Sirumalai hills of Tamil Nadu. The facility was completely renovated in 2014, and it can now accommodate 25 children. With their living quarters, dining hall, playground, library, and recreation room inside the enclosed compound, the children can live, study, and play safely and comfortably.

 

By the grace of God, there are twenty-four beautiful children now living at the Promised Land whose young lives have been totally changed. Once they were hopeless and empty inside, suffering physically with hunger and poverty as well as emotionally with shame and rejection because of a disease they don't even have. But now, living and playing on the Promised Land, having their needs met and receiving the love they deserve, their eyes are bright and their hearts are joyful.

What missionaries are saying about Independent Church in India

  "To see first hand individuals becoming an extension of who Jesus is in our world today, reaching out to lepers whom society looked upon as untouchable, to provide food and clothing, bedding to sleep upon even if that means sleeping on the side of a busy dirty street filled with all kinds of humanity, animals etc. is the kind of compassion Jesus still has today if He can just find someone to carry His presence and power."                   ................................ Evangelist/Missionary/Author - Dave

 

 

 


In the villages, which have been reached by the ministry team of the Independent Church in India, there is a ray of hope ....... Many of the people have a new hope, which they have found only in hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ.     - US Missionary Kristi
