Disaster Relief. Bihar Flood Update August 2017
We are coming to the end of a harrowing week. We started with the threat of flood in 2-3 districts of Northern Bihar and by today, over 20 districts are affected. Over 34 million are hit. District after district is underwater, flowing .... and overflowing. Our staff have seen dozens of dead bodies being thrown into the flowing waters; screaming women and children drowning in water with full force; angry villagers sitting on the roads with cattle and children with no food and water; thousands of houses made of mud and bamboo collapsed - and such suffering, which I must confess is overwhelming.

At NIEA, we are in the business of envisioning a New India. Serving in a largely under-developed part of India, transformation is what we seek. Transformation is the progressive and ongoing measurable supernatural impact of the presence and power of God working in, through, and apart from the Church on human society and structures.
It addresses the plea “Lord, may your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.”
Over the past years, we have seen the power of God's Word go forth as eager listeners and readers have access to Scripture in their own heart language.
Lives are changed,
as committed disciples engage with the Living Word, dramatic results ensue.
Individuals are being called to be conformed to the image of Christ. Churches are being challenged to be renewed. This motif encompasses every facet of human society and calls for an understanding of the Greek word “metamorphoo” which means to change from one degree of glory to another, with ever increasing glory (see John 4:14; 2 Cor. 3:18, I John 3:9).
Through the multi-faceted ministry of training, church planting, child care, education, medical services and scripture translation, our focus is to see the nation transformed -one by one, village by village, state by state. God's peace and grace be with you!
Leading as many as possible to Christ, especially the most needy in society,
by growing the ministries we offer
