Constant Prayer Needs
The VISION of API and our ministry partners is to prepare 30 million new disciples in India by the year 2018. We have seen more than 92,161 churches planted in various urban and rural area of North India. These churches represent over 4 million believers! We were able to reach this population through Community Learning Centers (CLC) and other service ministries. Through the CLC project itself we were able to equip 22,449 believers to be disciple makers and church planters. Pray that God would continue to bless this ministry as we meet basic needs and make disciples. Pray for the vision of seeing 30 million new disciples in India by the year 2018.
Other service ministries of ASSI include Sahyog A Child, Child & Adult Literacy Centers, Vocational trainings, Disaster Relief & Rehabilitation, Micro Loan Programs, Self Help Groups, and Mother and Child Health Awareness Programs. Pray that God would continue to provide opportunites to serve and the tools and resources necessary to meet these needs in Jesus' name. Pray for the CLC leaders and their families.
Through the Sahyog A Child Project we are working towards rehabilitation of street and railway children. Last year 300 Railway Children were benefiited by the services of our 8 centers located in Gorakhpur, Lucknow, Varanasi, Delhi, Patna, Mugalsarai and two in Kolkata. We have educated 9242
underprivelged Children and 2000 Adults through our 95 Literacy Centers in the villages. The goal is not
just to educate these children but also to get them admitted to regular schools for further education to
those who will continue. Pray for these beautiful children...that they would know that though the world has seemingly forgotten about them, that their Father in Heaven loves them deeply and has great plans for their life. Pray for the staff that work with these children every day. Pray for the emotional and physical health of the children being taken care under the Sahyog A Child and Literacy Center Projects, as well as for those who are surviving on the railway platforms, streets and slums.
One of the newer mission fields is the Urban Youth of India. In 2009 API and our ministry partners initiated an Urban Youth Ministry project with an aim to build and equip the young urban population of the cities to be effective leaders. Our focus is on starting a movement among the youth to reach the unreached in their communities. The Urban Youth Ministry which has been a blessing for more than 350 young people through trainings, conferences, counseling and consultations, is an extension of the existing ministry model pioneered in the Bhojpuri, Awadhi and Magahi community. Pray for the Urban Youth Ministry; for God’s wisdom to guide our team as they are working towards encouraging young people to be church planters. Pray for wisdom and guidance in pioneering this new ministry to the urban youth population. Pray that leaders would rise up with a burden to reach their cities for Christ.
