I vividly recall stepping off the train in Samsi, West Bengal for the first time. Our team was rather exhausted from the 40 or so hours of travel since departing from the airport in Houston, Texas. We made our way with our luggage to the awaiting cars and drove the next few miles to the compound that houses the Emmanuel Church facilities.

We only had a short amount of time to change, have breakfast, and meet together prior to the first morning service of the crusade. The crowd was large, the spirit was fervent, and the anointing was present. Throughout the day the crowd continued to grow. The night services were incredible as God poured out his glory upon the pilgrims present.

Several years and conferences have now come and gone since that first day. The physical and spiritual progress has been incredible. Doors have opened, new property and buildings have been purchased, new facilities constructed, and so much more. This is truly a work of God not that unlike the wonderful days of the early church in the Book of Acts.

I wish each of you could go every year and be there with us to witness the power and mercy of God. Whether in the crusade services, the medical camps, or in any number of the village churches where we were the first white men many of them had ever met, God has been there.

There is a way you can go however. We need your assistance in two very valuable and indispensable ways:
1. We need intercessors and prayer warriors to cover us in prayer.
2. We are in desperate need of financial assistance for the open doors are many and the work of God is so great.

Please consider partnering with us financially. Your donations are tax deductible. 100% of your donations go directly to the work of God in India.

We do not have any salaried people nor do we use any of the donated funds for any operating expenses here. Everything we do we freely donate. Why?
India needs Jesus.

God bless you,
Dr. Fred Childs

The capital of West Bengal is Calcutta. The name Calcutta is derived from Kali (Hindu goddess of destruction). The official language of West Bengal is Bengali (85.8%). The minority languages include Santali (2.6%), Urdu (2.1%) and Nepali (1.3%). Majority of the population consists of Hindus (75.1%) and Muslims (23.4%). Christians comprise only about six- tenths of a percent.

When India gained independence, Bengal was divided into West and East based on Hindu/ Muslim religion. Later East Bengal became now known Bangladesh. Due to this partition, millions of refugees poured into the city of Calcutta. Today 13 million people live in Calcutta, which makes it the world’s lowest standard of living with vast slums. Now Calcutta has over one million homeless according to the recent statistics.

Emmanuel Mission India is a ministry effort that encompasses 91 churches with over 10,000 members. We also have a Bible College that graduates both Male and Female ministers and workers annually. Our goal is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout India through evangelism and compassion.

We need help. Would you or your church would considering partnering with us to reach these sweet people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ? We desperately need financial support for several of the ministry projects mentioned on this website. Without support from people like yourself, this whole ministry would have to cease. Any help you can be at all would be appreciated immensely.
