Our Story: “An Act of God’s Pure Grace”

July 16th, 2014

Our latest video was just released, and we’re thrilled to share it with you today.

Filmed on location in India by the generous and creative folks at Let There Be, this brief, inspiring film tells the story of how Vision Nationals grew from a single church into a multi-faceted ministry that touches thousands of lives each year. As one of our board members said, “The story never gets old.” Indeed, it doesn’t.

Vision Nationals is an act of God’s pure grace, and this film beautifully captures that sentiment. Please take a moment to watch the video and share it with others. And thank you for partnering with us as we plant churches, train nationals, and care for orphans and widows in India.


Since 1992, Vision Nationals has been fulfilling the Great Commission in India. Through your prayers and financial gifts God has graciously sustained our work.

5 Things You Should Know

July 8th, 2014

5_Things_a_final

No. 1: “…remember, asking is the rule of the kingdom.” Like so many of his contemporaries, Charles Spurgeon understood the importance of persistent, believing prayer, and more than one hundred years after his death, his writings continue to embolden the church to pray. As we intercede for India this month, we invite you to join us. Like Spurgeon, we believe that “God’s church might have inconceivable blessings if she were but ready to pray.”

No. 2: On June 18 we opened a new children’s home in L.N. Peta, Srikakulam District. By God’s grace, 20 at-risk children are now being loved and cared for in a safe, familial environment. Our hope is that in the coming years we’ll be in a position to offer hundreds, if not thousands, of vulnerable, abandoned, and orphaned children a place of refuge in one of our homes.

No. 3: Despite setbacks, including excessive heat that blanketed Andhra Pradesh, construction continues on our new school. By mid-September the new building should be ready for occupancy, and we’ll be able to welcome hundreds more students into our school.

No. 4: On July 21-25, we’ll be hosting our pastors’ training program in Visakhapatnam (Vizag); helping us facilitate this important event will be two teams sent by partner churches in the U.S. As a ministry, one of the greatest privileges we have is the opportunity to strengthen and encourage Indian pastors. By God’s grace, our campus has become a hub for equipping the church and her leaders, and it is truly an honor for us to be in a position to build up the body of Christ. We treasure each and every occasion to do so.

No. 5: As we shared with you in last month’s edition of 5 Things You Should Know, Madhurawada Church is an extraordinary congregation with a passion to proclaim and demonstrate the gospel of Jesus Christ in the city of Vizag. Their love for Jesus and his mission has compelled them to start an English-speaking congregation (or “English church”), and the church’s first worship service is slated for Sunday, August 3. Please keep this vibrant community of faithful Christians in your prayers as they begin this new work.

July Prayer Requests

July 1st, 2014

July Prayer Requests

Our work in India depends on the persistent, believing prayers of God’s people. As we wholeheartedly embrace a posture of dependency on God — inviting his kingdom to come and his will to be done on earth as it is in heaven — he acts on our behalf.

THIS MONTH, PLEASE PRAY FOR…

The new children’s home we started in L.N. Peta, Srikakulam District, on June 18. By God’s grace, 20 at-risk children are now being loved and cared for in a safe, familial environment.

Our pastors’ training program, which takes place on July 21-25 at our campus in Vizag. It’s our hope that this event will be a great encouragement to Indian pastors.

Monsoon season to begin. The Indian heat wave has claimed at least 169 lives in our state alone and forced us to cut our school day in half. Millions are suffering under the oppressive heat.

The English-speaking congregation (or “English church”) that is beginning to take shape in Vizag. The church’s first worship service is slated for Sunday, August 3.

The safety of construction crews as they build our new school.

Our students and teachers as they begin another academic year. Between Master’s School and Master’s College of Theology we’ve enrolled more than 110 new students.

God’s favor as we renew our government-mandated recognition of Master’s School. This year, for some inexplicable reason, the process has been fraught with challenges.

The completion of the church buildings that are currently under construction, as well as the capacity, financial and otherwise, to build many more.

God’s grace to rest upon us as we plant churches, train nationals, and care for orphans and widows in India.

Thank you for praying for Vision Nationals.
