New Life Associates proclaims the gospel of Christ in India through a number of channels such as preaching, sharing and mass media. Every day hundreds are accepting Christ and filling the churches. KPC has been a mission partner of New Life Associates for many years.
Led by Rev. Kishore Joseph, Director, and his wife, Dr. Marie Joseph, Medical Director, New Life Associates has also transformed the lives of the poor and needy through medical clinic treatment, revival, and spiritual growth. New Life Associates is based in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.
The construction of the New Life Ministry Centre is a mighty act of God in our twin cities. It is built on about one and one half acres of land upon which are the Trinity Cathedral Church, Emory Multi-Specialty Hospital, Masilamani Conference Centre and the Administrative Building. To acquire this much land in the middle of the city is now impossible. Praise God, He had a plan and helped us buy this land 15 years ago.
This is a fast developing area in which construction of shopping complexes, multi-national outlets and multi-story apartments is underway. Near to the New Life Ministry Centre there are 30 acres of land on which multi-story apartments and duplex homes are planned. Literally thousands of people will soon move into the area.
This growth in population provides an excellent ministry opportunity to share the Gospel, teach the Word and provide medical help. We firmly believe we are in the center of God's will and do our best to fulfill his purposes.
For many years our physicians operated in a small room giving free medical treatment to the poor and needy. But now our dream is a reality! A beautiful 150 bed hospital is built in the New Life Ministry Centre and is named Emory Multi-Specialty Hospital. Poor patients in the surrounding slums and other areas are now being served by this new facility.
The hospital maintains good hospital hygiene and features clean beds, expert medical treatment, and excellent nursing care, backed up with warm Christian love. More and more people are learning about this new hospital and it is expected that it will soon be treating hundreds of out-patients daily and 150 in-patients.
In the past four months our doctors have treated 1,592 out-patients, performed 82 Ultra-sound scans, 12 normal deliveries, 10 surgical procedures and 17 Caesarean sections. There is an urgent need for more equipment and we hope that to receive support for that purpose.
The Trinity Cathedral Church built in the New Life Ministry Centre is growing. Within a span of three years we have 150 believers worshipping in this beautiful church. We are working hard to establish them in the faith commitment to Lord Jesus. This year during 40 days of Lent we held prayer meetings in the homes of all families. Every Friday night about a dozen members gather for Bible Study, fasting, and prayer.
In the past few months 8 new believers have been added to the church through baptism. The church can accommodate 1500 people for worship.
