We were recently able to send a further substantial remittance to Yesuway Jeevan Mission, given by New Zealand donors to be distributed to those who have been affected by the Covid 19 lockdown which has been in place for many weeks in India. Please thank the Lord for our donors who continue to give generously.
Mission Manager Immanuel distributed the funds to a number of YJM’s ministry partners who have recognised the needs of their people and of many others in their communities and have reached out with Christian compassion and love to help meet those needs.
Christ Special High School at Sangkarapuram, in Tamil Nadu, received some of the funds and the Director of the school, Pastor Paul Nilivan wrote as follows and sent some pictures of the distribution…
“Greetings from Christ Special School
The Christ school organised rice, vegetables, provisions for students families. We invited 10 families of our students from different villages but 7 families participated others they are not able to come due to no transport. On 20/5/2020 on we distributed the packages of materials (rice, vegetables, provisions) we explained & educated about corona virus. And also we told about Advent mission financial support.

Rev Paul Gandham wrote as follows…
“I wish to express my sincere and heartful thanks to American Advent Mission New Zealand for your kind help of 30,000/- rupees towards feeding food for the poor and needy people. During this global pandemic of Covid 19 we have distributed food, groceries, daily material to the poor families.
We strive to reflect God’s unconditional love that embraces all people regardless of race, caste, religion etc. We believe that we can show His love by serving the “least of these” on this earth as CHRIST challenged us to do in Matthew 25.
With much love and prayers,
In CHRIST for His glory,”
