CMA Sunday morning serviceIt is my joy to write this CMA news letter. This Sunday, we celebrated the most glorious event in all of history. Because He lives, we who know Him shall live also. In the resurrection, Jesus Christ conquered sin and death; He is alive forever.

There is none other like Christ
He had no servants yet they called Him Master
No degree yet they called Him Teacher
No medicine yet they called Him Healer
No army yet He is Conqueror
He won no military battles yet He is victorious over the world
He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him
He was buried in the tomb yet He lives today!”

We thank God for His faithfulness that from the beginning of this year till today although the financial crisis of the world He is faithful to provide the every needs of us by His providence (Phil.4:19) as He supplied for Elijah by crow. We are ever grateful to those who are our mentors, teachers, advisors, prayer partners, supporters, co-workers and well wishers.

There were many events during these three months in our mission. You can find them in the Easter Letter

Moipith Health Centre to be inauguratedCMA has a long tradition in the promotion of health for residents of the Sunderban Islands. These islands in the bay of the Ganges are a unique eco-system. At the same time, the inhabitants are very poor and deprived of many facilities. On most islands you will find no gas, water or electricity. Often, the farmers can provide their own food, but medical care is practically inaccessible. Regularly CMA teams go with one of our two boats to the islands, accompanied by a doctor, an optician and a pharmacist. 

We are particularly grateful that, by the help of “Palm en Ceder” from the Netherlands, five clinics could be built where our health care gets a permanent place. This week four of the five clinics on the islands were inaugurated by Rev. Willem Smouter from the Dutch church in Breukelen. Read the rest of this entry »

Christ Mission Ashram calenderBy the grace of God we have entered a new year, the Year of the Lord 2009. We consider it our calling to bring the gospel of Christ to unreached people in North India, through teaching, preaching (evangelism), healing, discipling and planting churches in unreached people groups. This includes crèche, orphanage, Ideal Mission School, India Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Good Samaritan Hospital, Literacy, and reaching the Sunderban Islands.
Throughout this website we offer you information about this work, with a specific aim: we hope that you will join us in prayer for this Ministry, while only in the power of God we can fullfill our calling.

CMA "MV Salt and Light"The Sunderban Islands are having a special place in our ministry. We feel it as our burden to reach the unreached, and to preach Christ where He was not known. These islands in the delta of the great Ganghes river are inhabited by people that are unreached in many aspects. Many of them are not in touch with either schooling or basic health care, and no one ever told them the Gospel. Our Boat-ministry is to extend a hand to the inhabitants of all the 54 islands. By the grace of God we we treated a total of 15625 patients this year (2008). We also had 62 cataract surgeries by the help of Dr.Park Jae Hyung of Spiritual Wave mission.

Artist impression of new CMA-buildingThe year 2008 was a year when Indian Christians had to pass the fiery furnace (I Peter 4:12) in different corners of India such as Orissa, Karnataka, Jharkhand, Assam, and Uttaranchal etc. Throughout this year the living Lord has shown us His grace, mercy and protecting hands and carried us in His wings (Isa. 40:31). By His grace for our Kolkata Love Presbyterian Church we baptized 7 people on Easter. We are also preparing 7 more to be baptized in Christmas. During this one year God has blessed us abundantly, and we praise Him with all our heart.
