Thank you for partnering with us in prayer in 2016! You stood with us through the exciting times of church planters moving farther and deeper into unreached areas to spread the Good News. And you also stood with us during the hard times of persecution and natural disasters.
 
Without your support, our ministry would not be able to move forward at such an accelerated rate like it did this past year. Here are just a few examples of how God’s kingdom was propelled forward:
 
7,594 NEW CHURCHES STARTED
Each of these new churches is now an outpost of light, compassion and love in the community it serves. Each church represents a growing vision for community transformation that will prayerfully live on long past any of us, and, in all likelihood, will accomplish far more than IGL’s collective statistics will ever reveal. Our cumulative total of churches planted through IGL now surpasses 90,000!
 
8,398 CHILDREN CARED FOR IN IGL HOMES AND SCHOOLS
We have many children in our sponsorship program who attend IGL run daycare centers, evening study centers and local Christian schools. Many of these children come under our care through the ministry of various IGL village pastors.
 
1,221 WOMEN RECEIVED MICRO-CREDIT LOANS AND BUSINESS TRAINING
So many women in South Asia have never had the opportunities we would wish for – to develop and hone a skill, to help provide for their families (particularly those in dire circumstances), to reach their own potential. We are so glad to be able to work with many widows, single mothers and other women in need, helping them begin small businesses.
