This Sunday...


“’It is because of God’s grace that we have the strength, courage and motivation to work among these people, to share with them, to hug them, to love them and to care for them,’” Pastor Jiva  

Matthew 10
5 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. 6 Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. 7 As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give."

Jesus still sends people out to cleanse those who have leprosy. Did you know?


Kishori is one of many who has lived with leprosy. She struggled to get to the hospital for cleansing and treatment, until one day missionaries through Gospel for Asia showed up at her door to clean her wounds. And they showed up the next day, and the next, and continued doing so. Each time they showed up at her door they would come to cleanse her wounds and tell her and her family about Jesus. Kishori is now healed from leprosy but still receives help from Gospel of Asia. The missionaries also help others on a daily basis who are stricken with leprosy.

Sunday is World Leprosy Day. I know how we can all get sidetracked and distracted on the weekends, so I wanted to let you all know about it now. Not everyone is called to go into the fields to help those with leprosy, but we can still help those who are sent.
