India: When It Rains, It Pours
Some struggles would be difficult to deal with in a normal year. But in the midst of a pandemic, some challenges seem insurmountable. That's what happened when heavy rains filled dams in two districts of central India in late August 2020. In the middle of the night, the floodgates were opened—and the resulting waters washed away 40 villages with next to no warning.
Perimeter has supported our Christian ministry partners in India for more than 20 years through funding, leadership training, and life-on-life missional discipleship. Our Indian ministry partners were the first ones on the scene to assist the thousands of villagers who lost their homes and everything they owned in the blink of an eye. They distributed food, clothing, and even built homes for many families who lost theirs. They even bought new nets for fishermen so that they could go back to work to provide for their families.
But just as important, they provided hope that the villagers were not forgotten.
Not by people, and not by God
