Leena and her husband Vijay are a vibrant part of the church in Mumbai. They have served in many ministries and they have two lovely daughters. They are hard workers, but despite their endeavors, they live in very poor conditions in a slum outside Mumbai.

Leena suffered a terrible fall in the shower and severely injured her back. To deal with the pain, Leena took painkillers, but they only masked the injury and now her back is much worse. During the COVID outbreak, Leena lost her job and she and her family do not have the means to pay for her healthcare. Given her worsening condition, it is possible she may need surgery. Leena and her family are seeking your financial assistance as they endure this incredibly difficult time.

Hello, my name is Miguel. I was baptized on May 28, 2008, in Monterrey, MX. My wife Jovany and I have two children, a 3 year old and a 6 year old.

Approximately 10 months ago, the company where I worked had financial problems, and I was left without income.

I have been looking for a job, but it has been challenging with COVID. We are behind on our monthly rent and we are at risk of losing it soon. We are trying to pay loans that we requested in order to pay for food. We are in a very difficult situation at the moment and we are seeking your support of $1000 to help us with our needs.

The Middle East is a beautiful region rich in natural resources, history, and culture. Its significance to many has created unseemly never-ending wars and conflicts that have caused the displacement of over 20 million people. Research on the needs in the region show that nearly 35 million require daily humanitarian assistance. (Pew Research Center)

The hardships that follow from living in a conflict zone spare no one and many of our brothers and sisters in this area are in urgent need of our help. The financial instability that our spiritual family faces is grave. Toppled governments and civil unrest makes it nearly impossible to earn a living, especially when the valuation of your country's currency is on a steep decline.

Below are the present needs for 10 disciple families/individuals. As always, 100% of your contributions will go directly to assist our brothers and sisters. God bless!

My name is Guissell. I am a disciple of 23 years, a wife and a mother. My husband Mario, and I have been through a lot in our walk with God. When he first came to church he was working through a messy divorce while caring for his two children. But God changed his life and he has been a disciple for more than 17 years. We are so grateful that now our oldest son has already become a Christian and we are praying for our other 3 children.  

My husband is a school bus driver and when COVID hit, they shut down the schools and started remote learning. My husband immediately lost his job and since then has been unable to find anything steady.

Recently, the whole family tested positive and we were infected with COVID. Our economic situation is very unstable, and we are in great need of assistance. Your help towards our family needs is greatly appreciated!

We are the Hernandez family, my wife Berenice and I were baptized at the Mexico City Church 24 and 27 years ago respectively. We are currently living in Merida, Yucatan. We have two kids, Hernan (14) and Dante (10).
Last year, my son Hernan was diagnosed with a disease named multiple osteochondromas (bone tumors cover by cartilage). On September 2020, he had a 5 hour surgery in which several tumors were removed from his legs and surgical plates were settled on his knees and surgical screws were settle on his ankles.
Nevertheless, he´s been experiencing pain and lack of complete movement on one of his arms. He has tumors on his wrist. He needs a new surgery to remove these tumors, to help him reduce pain and recover complete movement of his hand. Also to remove the plates and screws from his legs. This surgery must occur on the first week of October. Our business, that is our source of income, has been heavily affected by the COVID pandemic and our family income has been drastically diminished.
For this reason we are requesting an economic support to cover the expenses of clinical tests before surgery (blood test, MRI, CT scan) and the surgery itself.

I was baptized on September 29, 2019. Becoming a disciple saved my life. Before knowing God, I was going through a very rough phase in my life. However, thanks to the grace of God, not only was I saved, but so also my wife, mother, and sister! God is amazing!  

Today I come before you, to ask your assistance to pay for my son's laptop which broke before I could finish paying the installments. Due to the pandemic, my son is in great need of this computer to pursue his studies and I currently cannot afford an additional payment. Your assistance to our family would be an incredible blessing!

Hello Brothers and Sisters.


This is Sylva. She lives in Beirut, Lebanon, and attends Lebanon Church of Christ. She was invited to study the bible and the lesson of the "Cross" made all the difference in her life. She got baptized on August 19th 2011. Since then Sylva showed nothing but a serving heart ready to be always available for the church no matter the challenges she was going through. Today she leads, with love and compassion, the pre-teens and the kids kingdom ministries.
Her dream is to live for Jesus and bring as many people as possible to Him.
She is a mother of two adorable children, and works as a math teacher. Over the years, Sylva and her family suffered from a financial crisis especially when her dad went through medical treatments in 2006 (cancer patient with diabetes). Being the only child of the family, it was truly hard on her and a big responsibility to be able to handle all the challenges. For the past two years, the economy in the country has become very difficult for all of them, especially that her husband was out of work because of COVID. She had to tutor privately in order to put food on the table and take care of her family as well as parents. 
What she earned was used to pay bills and food but not mechanic bills for the car for several years. Therefore, her basic need is to fix her car since she works a long way from home and there is no proper transportation in our country. Finally, Sylva would like to thank you for your generous hearts.
