      “Every Christ follower qualifies as a Kingdom builder”   Sam Stephens So often we feel inadequate in telling people about Jesus or sharing the gospel and so we shy away from even bringing it up. Maybe you thought about sharing Jesus with a friend but because of their background decided not to. You may sense in…

        Every spring it begins…­ A new round of Children’s Gospel Clubs (CGCs)! Students attending a CGC not only learn about Jesus, they’re encouraged to share Him with their families and friends.

          If I invest in a nursing student, it’s not just about $50 a month, though that might be my first thought. It becomes more about the student at the other end of that investment—a student miles away, where a caste system still exists and poverty is the norm. As I get ready to send my son…

              I’ve only been with IGL for a few weeks, but my heart is already overwhelmed. My name is Kris and I’ve recently taken the Publications Coordinator position with India Gospel League NA. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been saturated with learning IGL’s history and the vast ministry God is propelling in South Asia.…

                “After this course, I hope I can get a good job and take care of my mom,” Lakshmi explained why she joined the nursing program at IGL’s college.

                  India is home to one of the fastest growing economies in the world. But that growth has not extended to the nation’s healthcare services. India’s poor healthcare system is credited with allowing 1.6 million people to die each year. Qualified doctors and nurses are in short supply across the country, with an estimated three doctors…

                    As I looked around me, I wondered how such a beautiful paradise could exist in the midst of such poverty and destitution. It wasn’t the beautiful landscape that caught my attention in my February trip to India (though to be sure there are many beautiful sights), but rather the inexplicable joy radiating from my brothers and…
