Worldwide celebrations took place Holy Week remembering Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. Historical evidence worldwide continues to show “perfect love casts out fear”. Following are Winter photos of courageous pastors and volunteers who love people and ministered tangible relief through dangerous economic, health, and persecuting circumstances. Please continue to pray for Jayan and Jyothi’s ASHA Ministries team of courageous leaders. They are so thankful to God for your prayers and support and are praying for you. God bless your Easter and Spring!

Winter Self Sustaining Projects: A Sewing Class in Uttar Pradesh and one in Madya Pradesh were started. Funds were just sent for two projects, a Sewing Class and a Beauty Shop at the foothills of the Himalayas. Life Seeds helped a pastor’s wife in North India start one of our first self sustaining projects that Jayan recently viewed. She started with one hand made wooden spindle and weaving machine and made beautiful wool clothes. Now she has several wooden machines and teaches women to weave wool products for the market. We are so proud of how she’s helping other women learn this trade and self sustain while making wool blankets and clothes for their cold North India climate.
Jayan recently held three Pastors/Leaders Trainings in Punjab, Haryana, and the foothills of the Himalayas. He also spoke in Delhi and Jammu. We are grateful for Jayan’s willingness to travel these long trips to encourage and train pastors and leaders who mentor and equip their communities.
