Reaching & Rescuing in India
In India, Grace is partnered with three missions, all working to reach and rescue people, in Christ's name. Here is the scope of who and what we support in India:
1. AlongSide Asia
This group is headed by Dave and Cathy Hicks, who partner, coach, and encourage Indian Christian Leaders. They are helping new generations of evangelists and deisciple makers find financial support and resources- Alongside Asia partners with other ministries in India to maximize their impact.
2. Malstead Family - Freedom Firm
In February, Greg & Mala Malstead visited Grace Church and shared with us the impact of Freedom Firm in India . They also shared their struggles with the court system and the recent court victory of their daughter Kavi, who won her own case and can now travel into India again.
With Freedom Firm, the Malsteads are part of a network committed to rescuing girls from sex-trafficking and child prostitution. They restore the girls to health and to their families, if safe, and seek justice for the girls.
3. Nicholas Das - Hindustan Institute of Missions
The Hindustan Institute of Missions (HIM) is more than a training center for church planters. It is a language school, a vocational school, and a children's school - teaching the Word of God and practical skills that graduates can use to better serve their communities. HIM is reaching some of the most unreached and difficult to reach people groups in India. Nicholas leads HIM and is hosting our own Mike Stachura this week.
Keep praying for Mike as he travels through the region and adjust to the hot temperatures and the time change.
