My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for India Gospel League, Inc. North America, Hudson, OH, USA
I have been involved with the India Gospel League (IGL) for over sixteen years. For six of those years I was Director of the Wichita India Project (WIP), a group of churches located in Witchita, Kansas that came together to support the IGL. Though involved with missions for many years, I had never seen the completion of a project in a foriegn country before. The WIP came together with a goal to plant a certain number of churches, support pastors, build a number of Life Centers, teach life skills, and improve village life. IGL came up with a required budget to do all these ministries and in less that three years the money had been raised by WIP and all goals completed. We were able to walk away knowing that the indigenous community was sustainable. Therefore, we decided to do the same in another region of India. During that time period God enabled me to travel to India on two different occasions. I was able to see how God used the local Christian population, not Western missionaries, to accomplish His will. This is how missions should work.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
evangelism, health care, learning life skill, children's homes, and feeding of lepers.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the results. The IGL is goal oriented backed by results.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
dedicated and willing to lay their very lives on the line facing persecution and even death. I have know Samuel Stephens, president of the IGL, and his family for over 16 years. They are truly the life blood of the indigenous church.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
increase the value of life, improve health care, teach families to support themselves and thus reduce the number of orphan children.
