Please join India Transformed! for our monthly, “Live Updates from India with our founder John Peter” on the first Thursday of each month at 6pm MST. We will share stories of how God is miraculously moving through India and transforming lives through our Community Transformation Centers, Women’s Empowerment Program and Children’s ministry. Due to the rise of Christian persecution taking place in India, all attendees must pre-register to attend so we can verify your status. This is open to all NALC members.

Despite the pandemic, the NALC network made 2020 a tremendous year!
We are humbled and honored by your faithfulness and the trust you place in us to be good stewards with your generous donations. You have brought so much joy to the children, women and communities we serve in India that it warms our hearts.
Highlights of 2020 include:
- caring for 469 Dalit children and bringing them hope and joy
- teaching 180 women in the ARISE! Program with employable skills
- training over 60 Community Transformation Workers to reach 2,350 families with the Good News
- expanding the Private School to add grades 11 and 12 to increase enrollment by 500 students
- purchasing property to build a Christian college to serve marginalized people
These opportunities happened because of your ongoing support, which is the basis of our community of devoted supporters. This promises to be another exciting year ahead as we develop a Mission Training Center on the new Christian college campus. To learn more, please click here to read the 2020 Impact Report.

It is with thankful hearts that we are able to say that we made it safely back to the states in December with negative Covid tests on both ends. As we shared in our last email we are planning to be in the states until the end of February as a short furlough with time to rest, regroup and take care of some things before we head back to Bulgaria for the spring. We have had a wonderful time with our family these past few weeks and while we are not able to see many of you in person due to the virus situation, it has been a blessing to see those of you that we can during this time. We do hope that we are able to connect with more of you either in person or virtually in the coming weeks while we are stateside.

While other faith communities look for ways to close and minimize these churches, the NALC values these parishes as they continue to seek avenues to enhance ministry and make disciples for Jesus. Like all other congregations, small and rural missions face both challenges and opportunities.
