The people in India desperately need our help.
At this very moment, a terrible situation is unfolding on the other side of the world in South Asia. As you may have seen in the news, India is in the midst of a serious, nationwide crisis due to the resurgence of COVID-19. Let me paint a picture for you: hospitals are overflowing beyond capacity … medical supplies, particularly oxygen, are running critically low … there are dead bodies on the streets … and the crematoriums themselves are breaking down due to ‘round-the-clock use. In April alone, the country recorded a staggering 3 million new cases (over 400,000 in a single day) and over 17,000 deaths. And many of those 17,000 died without ever having heard the name of Jesus. Those souls are lost forever, but you can help save so many others.
To put it plainly, these circumstances are appalling, and it appears that it is only going to get worse.
As the Body of Christ, we are not only called to bring the true light of the Gospel to those who have never heard, but also to alleviate suffering when it is in our power to do so. e3 Partners has been working with indigenous leaders in South Asia to share the Gospel and plant churches for many years, and this extensive network will enable us to move quickly. In fact, many of these leaders and their families are in dire circumstances themselves.
So let me ask you a simple question: are you willing to rush a donation to assist the people of India, who so desperately need our help? Just $33 will provide an entire family with food, hand sanitizer, facemasks, and vitamin C for one month. Think of it, a donation of just $100 will provide for three families, $1,000 for 30 families. A little goes such a long way. And by providing physical relief, we are opening the door for the spiritual relief of the Gospel. Already, we have seen thousands upon thousands turn to Christ through the compassion and generosity of God’s people, many of these from among some of the most unreached people groups in the world. We have learned that where there is suffering, God is at work.
So, will you join us? The people of India need our help. And in doing so, remember the words of Jesus in Matthew 25:40: “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these, you did for me.”
