"Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ - Luke 10:9
As Jesus was sending his Disciples out in Luke 10 he instructed them to 'Heal the sick who are there and tell them, 'the Kingdom of God has come near to you.' The order in which Jesus instructed his Disciples to do these 2 things is very important. Someone once said 'people need to know that you care before that care what you know'. 10"NINE Projects are programs that meet the immediate needs of the community through compassionate and selfless service - however, God uses these service opportunities to create fertile ground for the Gospel to be planted. Our leaders that facilitate these 1o:NINE Projects are trained to seek out the man of peace in a community and train that person to become a disciple maker within their context.
Access to a community is key to finding the man of peace who will eventually bring the gospel to that community. APII has established dozens of these 'access mnistries' across North India. We believe that meeting physical needs "with no strings attached" will provide the opportunity to meet spiritual needs as the Lord provides. We seek to be an organization that has deep compassion for the people we are serving. We consider it an honor to co-labor with Christ to be a blessing to these beautiful people.
