Earlier this year, there was catastrophic flooding in Kerala, a state in India along the nation’s southwest coast.

Over 60 churches were affected by the rising waters. However, most of the believers who are a part of these churches also lost their homes. Those believers are currently in the process of trying to rebuild their own homes and lives, so the funds for rebuilding the churches is lacking.

Over the past 4 months we have worked to make sure the immediate needs of people in the affected areas are met. Now we are looking to move into the next phase of trying to help them reestablish life in Kerala, by reopening places of worship so we can continue to bring hope and healing to these desperately affected communities.

The average each church needs for repairs is $1,500.00. The money will go towards repairing flooring, walls and roofs, so that people can safely join together in worship again.

If you’d like to help us reestablish the presence of the church in Kerala, you can give securely right here.

Thanks for being a part of this community. We couldn’t do this without you!
