Most beloved in Christ.
Greetings from India, I pray that this letter find you both excellent spirit and divine health. We are very much blessed to know about your ministry, and the mighty work you are doing.
I am a Evangelist working in south India, there are 15 evangelists working with me we are working in different remote areas, where their Gospel salvation never had been proclaimed.
We bring forth Gospel salvation through approach the public by small medical camps with the help of a voluntary Christian Doctor, and using Jesus crusification film in villages. Feed the hungry programs . Distributing Gospel tracts. After preach about Jesus and his love. Love of Jesus and Gospel salvation in many unreaches areas.
Every month we conduct at least 4 days by Medical camps and distributing Gospel tracts and conduction poor feedings, thereby we get close attention of Public. In the Gospel service we find thousands of people in streets who are living in Hilly and country side and in town areas, suffering and laid up from acute food problems and so many are in the stage of Emaciation.
There are many of widows, lepers and handicapped people and street orphans are living, they are really in need of Food, clothes, education and medical help certainly they are in need of love from someone.
When I see these people I cry in helpless mood, I request you to pray for these people, we want to conduct poor feeding program in that poor areas. Hence your prayers are needed very badly.
Kindly pray that we want to help at least 100 children’s who are deprived the human love and parents, even they don’t have relatives they are real orphans, they are suffering a lot in the streets there by we get close the love of God.
Kindly pray for the need of establishing more church groups in the villages. There is a great need to appoint Evangelists in the villages where the people were responded to our call for Christ, in our group 15 evangelists dedicated fervently to stay and work for Jesus in wideness. For this mighty work a evangelist must have the support of at least 100 dollars per month. With this100 dollars and with the small offerings that the evangelist gets from the congregation, he can stay in with his family. So I need your kind prayers in this Gospel work.
There are 45,000 villages which never heard at least the name of Jesus in this Heathen country, as our Evangelists go to remote and far distanced villages they face many problems in connection with transpiration, they are mostly in need of two wheelers Please pray for this need.
And I believe God will work through you and change this country. Dear brother, through this letter I request you for your kind prayers above following needs.
Looking forward to hear from you.
Yours in His service.
Evangelist, Peter

This organization taught me the value of giving back to the community. I've volunteered at other non profits before but I've never had an experience like I had with this organization. They really do care about helping people and they're great treating their volunteers. I really recommend this organization for anyone who wants to make a difference.

CIO is wonderful organization to volunteer in. I had a great time there. The people who work there are amazing, kind, and help a lot to students. They do an incredible work helping the community. Many families have being benefited by them. I highly recommend this organization in my school, not only because they are wonderful but the activities students do during the service learning help them to grow as person and see the necessity of others.
