02/13/2023 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Christians in Madhya Pradesh, India, face two major problems: the growing hostile discrimination against Christians and the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. This combination pushed many pastors into vulnerable situations, as offerings and tithes to churches dwindled drastically.

Despite this harsh reality, Pastor Lamar continues to train local leaders for church planting and evangelism. After his family became ill with COVID-19, they were all admitted to the hospital, incurring a substantial bill that pushed the pastor into financial distress.

Not only has he struggled to make ends meet but it was also incredibly difficult for him to continue spreading the gospel as intended. ICC heard of Pastor Lamar’s plight and decided to intervene. We assisted the pastor in starting up a business so he could support his family and free them of medical debt. Now the pastor can return to spreading God’s word with more financial stability in tow.
