TURNING DISASTER INTO VICTORY
Preaching the Gospel By Our Actions - Instead of Words
My name is Ahsin and I am 46 years old and my wife’s name is Hina and she is 45 years old and we have three children. We have been pagans for many, many generations. During the floods this year, we were left to drown by our own people who left us in the flood waters. But some Christian people saved our lives and they gave us food and medicines. Our pagan priest would not allow us to join his camp,
What happens to #Believers at the Great Judgment? Everyone who has ever lived is to be judged – there are no exceptions. But the #Bible is clear on what will happen to those that have put their trust in Jesus Christ. #Judgment? www.NewHorizonsMissions.com.
This year we were caught by surprise. It looked as though our congregations would be spared the floods that have destroyed so many lives and homes in the three previous monsoon seasons. But, no! This week the whole Punjab region of Pakistan and India has been inundated with deluges greater than any seen in the past 50 years. Millions are homeless and without food and countless acres of crops as well as poultry and cow farms have been "drowned".
How can this happen? Dams built in India have changed the natural flow of
What's Impossible for Man is Possible for God
It was 10 years ago that Kashi and Shaguta were married. They received the blessings of their Hindu priest and like many other newly-weds, they confidently started on the journey of becoming parents. After all, the couple came from large families so they fully expected to have several children of their own. Shaguta was longing to be a mother – to hold her baby in her arms – boy or girl, she didn't care – she just wanted her own child.
For 10 long years they tried everything but no baby came. They offered sacrifices to the fertility gods – but nothing happened. Finally, they received the worst possible news from their Doctor. After she examined Shaguta, she told the couple that it was impossible for her to become pregnant as she had a barren womb and there was a blockage in her uterus. They were devastated and cried out to the gods of their ancestors - but there was only silence.
Let our own Pastor Kevin take the story up from here. “New Horizons had just installed a clean water system in our village and we invited people of all faiths to
My name is Frankaa Shaman and I am 45 years old. I am married and have 4 children. I am serving over 20 years in prison for murder and other crimes. I am ashamed of my life and what I have done to other poor innocent victims. Like most criminals I started with a small crime but then I became out of control. My first crime started when I was a teenager when I was at a public swimming pool. I saw a purse in someone’s clothes when they were swimming and I put it in my pocket. I spent that money by watching a porn movie with my friend . How I wished I had never done that as I soon found out that porn movies created lustful desires in me and I started to sexually abuse to satisfy my desires and to go with prostitutes as well. Then I started robbing people on the road with a gun to get more money.
Then when I was 18 years old I started using drugs which created more need for money so
Tragedy for Sunday School Teacher Sisters
Martha and Alison were two sisters that loved each other – but also loved the Lord with all their hearts and they were actively involved in teaching children in the Mission School in the village of Atticah. However, a major flood recently swept through their poverty-stricken village in South Asia leaving a trail of disaster in its wake, First of all, Alison's heart was broken when her beloved sister, Martha was swept away by the raging waters and drowned. Could anything else go wrong? Well it did. A week later, the mud brick wall of a house collapsed on Alison completely crushing her leg. She was left in agonizing pain for several days receiving no medical assistance or even pain killers. The rain continued to pour down on her body but she was unable to be moved because of the extent of her injuries. She tells us she was screaming in pain for three days and nights and was close to death when God sent assistance.
We now move the scene to United States where Pastor James and his team received word of
She had no where to turn since the people around her were also poor and struggling to stay alive. Roberta cried night and day trying to figure how she and her family would survive. But God had a plan. He directed Roberta to Pastor William who was able to provide her with food and clothing for her family. The blessings continued as other women who are believers in Jesus Christ were able to find work for Roberta as a servant in a Muslim home. But the
The Needle of Life
Dear Pastor James & New Horizons Team,
God is great and merciful to all of his people and protects these people from all problems. A few years ago disease spread through Bungarla and killed many people. Children were also attacked by disease and those children not immunized contacted diseases including polio, tuberculosis (TB), hepatitis, measles, coughs and other ailments. God then directed New Horizons Missions (NHM) to step forward and immunize both adults and children resulting in disease being significantly reduced in Bungarla.
One of the children affected by polio is Amanda. She is an orphaned girl who lives with her aunt. Almost five years ago she was stricken with polio and unable to walk. The situation was terrible for this young girl. Because her aunt worked, there was no one to watch or care for her. As a result Amanda would sometimes soil her bed, resulting in beatings from her aunt.
But again God directed New Horizons Missions, to step forward. After my contacting you,
Dear Pastor James,
I would like to share a story about a young Hindu man who came to believe in Jesus after a long time of learning from God's Word – the Holy Bible. It took a long time for this man to come to understand God’s salvation plan and accept Jesus as his personal Lord & Savior. I prayed for him continuously. His name is Sameeal and he is 24 years old. When I started to share with him things from Bible, he was not interested ignored me. He was very a ritual person and obeyed Hindu idols and practiced Hindu worship in the Temples. He also offered sacrifices to idols. He shared with me

“Why do something for only a couple of people when you can do it for an entire village,” she said with a sparkling smile. Susan Uriarte, Director of the Women Together in Christ ministry related her plans to the New Horizons group at Shepherds Grove Church in November of 2013. She and her members planned to hold their annual fundraiser to benefit our missions in South Asia and her excitement was apparent in her gestures. The group decided that funds should be used to provide clean water in Walabad Village, where just over 200 Christians live and worship.Clean water is a major life-giving commodity in any third-world country but in South Asia, it
Tents Become Home
Simple but Effective Shelter & Warmth in the Third World
Through the generosity of Donors, New Horizons Missions was able to purchase much-needed huge tents, heaters, and rugs for flooring. Each year, many of our congregations experience devastating floods. Many of the poorest live in a tattered tent and theses are often washed away by the rushing waters, along with what few belongings they have acquired.
These 250-occupancy tents are used as shelter for those living under trees or out in the open. Pastors report to us that the most needy, newborn babies and their mothers, are particularly grateful for the warmth on the cold, foggy nights of their winter. Without the heat many would die.

In the west we consider a tent useful for a camping trip by the lake or perhaps to visit when the Circus comes to town. But we have found that in South Asia, a large tent will provide much needed shelter and save lives - especially of the elderly and little children. Each of these large tents will sleep about 250 and is a much-needed asset to a congregation who are living in the most dreadful poverty. What may be a plain tent to us becomes a place of rescue and comfort for the lives that are being benefited from this simple structure.
But you can imagine their excitement when a Donor enables us to purchase them a brand-new sturdy bicycle. All of a sudden they are now able to visit 3 or 4 villages in a day and then return home with the added bonus that their bodies are not as exhausted as they are frequently.
