  • Philippines Hit by Second Earthquake

    By Joyce Porcadilla

    We experienced another earthquake today. It was very strong. Reports said it was magnitude 6.4. We had to cancel classes and let the staff and teachers go home after checking all the building.

    By God’s Grace we are all safe but a lot of our buildings on campus have a lot of cracks. Some houses of our staff and students and former students in North Cotabato collapsed.

    We are still checking and confirming all damages caused by the series of earthquakes we experienced for the past two weeks now.

    Please give today as we prepare to assist our General Baptist family in the Philippines.

  • India Association March 2020 Update

    The India Association reports Dorcas Sewing Centers active in seven villages including Mangampadu, Balijapadu, VAnchangi, Konda Lingamparthi, Raparthi, Ramanayyapeta, and Pavara.  There are nearly 150 ladies receiving tailoring classes each day in these centers and be ministered to by a local congregation daily.

    India Association Pastor's Meeting
    India Association Pastor’s Meeting March 2020

    A new group of tribal pastors met on March 2 in the village of Goligonda.  Pastor Prakash visited two churches and interactive with 15 pastors in that particular areas.  The association is always on the search for new villages to reach with the Dorcas ministry and to assist people physically and spiritually. The main pastors meeting also took place in Pithapuram on March 12.  There were 16 pastors in attendance, they had a time of prayer together for the various churches.

    The association was also involved in helping 30 poor women and widows with clothing during the month and were able to reach 15 families with the gospel in the first three weeks of the month as well as benevolent ministry to 25 people and pastors.

    The India Association typically conducts a season of Lent prayers each year, but those prayer meetings only lasted until March 21, 2020, when the Indian government initiated restrictions due to COVID-19.  Large group gatherings for India Association ceased on March 21 and the Dorcas Sewing Centers stopped meeting temporarily on March 25.

  • India Medical Camp

    Pastor Jessey reports a successful Medical Camp in the rural areas of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh states in India. The medical camps were conducted in the villages of Thummileru and Ramanakkapet. The two camps were able to touch the lives of 456 people.

    Local newspaper coverage

    Pastor Jessey reports that the camps attracted media attention in both locations with local newspapers publishing articles in both locations. “Media was interested to know what we were doing and why we were doing it.”

    The community of Thummileru was only accessible by boat.  The entire team, with supplies, had to take an hours boat ride in order to conduct the camp.

    Pastor Jessey further explained that they had originally scheduled the camp for three days and three villages but ran out of medication after the second day.

    Arriving by boat

    Every day, 23,000 people die in India; 6,000 of those die due to lack of proper medical attention and the lack of medical facilities. According to the latest statistics, there is only one doctor for every 1,700 Indians. India is a nation of 1.3 billion people, and 70% of the population live in rural areas with inadequate or no medical programs. Sadly, this results in people dying from diseases which could easily have been treated with basic medication.

    Responding to this pressing need, medical camps are conducted particularly in remote villages without access to medical facilities (like doctors and pharmacies nearby) or where people live below the poverty line and therefore can never afford to visit a doctor or a medical facility.

    A typical medical camp cost $500 a day and may last for 2-3 days.  Calvary Grace has a goal to conduct several of these each year as funds are available.
