INDIA: Church Planting Among the Unreached
~2 Tim 1:6
Yesupadam, founder of Love-n-Care Ministries International, was himself an ‘untouchable’ Dalit, and most of those they help are from the low castes, the ‘untouchables’ and also the tribal people who are lower than untouchables.
The ‘untouchables’ are vulnerable to harsh religious and socio-economic discrimination. Nearly 90 percent of all the poor Indians and 95 percent of all the illiterate Indians are Dalits. These children are brought to Rev. Yesupadam’s Love-n-Care (LNC) Homes, and are provided education through their two schools.
The ministry also includes a hospital, a vocational center to train those who are disabled from polio in computers, printing and sewing, and train others in a Nursing School. LNC will be starting an Industrial Training Institute soon as well. However, the main ministry of LNC is to church plant in the poor untouchable villages and tribal mountain areas, which involves constructing buildings to serve as meeting places for the believers.
