AMG provides much-needed care and support for leprosy victims in India
There are approximately 3.2 million people living in India afflicted with leprosy. They live in isolation and poverty, shunned even by their own families, and often forced to turn to a life of begging in order to survive.
In this nation where darkness seems to hold such a grip, AMG is shining the light of the Gospel precisely through ministry to those whom society treats most poorly. In addition to church planting, newspaper evangelism and childcare, AMG is dedicated to sacrificially serving the leprosy victims of India.
AMG reaches out to leprosy patients at all stages of the disease. National workers in mobile medical units go to villages throughout India to identify those who are in the early stages of the disease so treatment can begin before any permanent physical damage is done.
AMG’s Valley of Love community provides leprosy sufferers a place to live and work in an environment where they are accepted and loved. Here they learn skills which enable them to provide for their families and become productive members of society again.
Food is distributed on a regular basis to leprosy victims who live with their families. Many times the deformities resulting from this disease leave people unable to work and earn a living. The food AMG provides enables them to meet the needs of their families.
One of the more pronounced deformities associated with leprosy is severe cataracts which often result in blindness. AMG operates the Kadyum Eye Hospital to compassionately restore sight through comprehensive visual care.
People from nearby villages come to the hospital for free treatment. Patients are treated for all manner of vision problems, and medicines and glasses are made available at no cost if needed.
Each month, Kadyum Eye Hospital conducts about 150 cataract surgeries and lens implantations. As a result of these surgeries, patients regain their lost sight, which enables them to return to normal life and work with confidence.
Through each of these outreaches, our ultimate goal is to lead the leprosy patient and his or her family to Jesus Christ. By making the love of Christ a living reality in their lives, we point them to Him as their only source of hope.
Each of these compassionate outreaches requires significant funding to continue. Your gift today will help cover the cost of equipment, supplies, and medicines needed to extend Christ’s love and compassion to leprosy sufferers in India.
Presently, there are 11 people, organizations and/or projects in need of your support.

God didn't intend for you to fight life's battles alone. Would you like to know how you can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?
It is because of God's love that He desires a relationship with mankind whom He has created. Yet because of His holiness, He can have no dealings with sin. That presents a problem...
Each of us has committed acts that are sinful. But more than that, because we are born with a sinful nature, we fall short of God's standard of perfection.
Because God is holy, He cannot look upon sin or accept sinful man into His presence. Yet because of His great love, He has made provision for man's sin...
Jesus is not just a good man, moral teacher or historical figure. He is God in a human body.
The death of Christ demonstrated the love of God and satisfied the demands of His holiness. His perfect sacrifice paid for our sins and took them away.
We cannot come to God on our own terms. God, who created us, has provided a way for us to know Him, but that way is only through His Son, Jesus.
It is not enough to believe intellectually that there is a God, or that Jesus existed as an historical figure, nor is it enough to have an emotional experience. Each of us must respond to God through an act of the will.
Salvation is turning from our old way of living, independent from God, and turning to Him and the new life He offers.
"...if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation." - Romans 10:9-10
Salvation is a result not just of intellectually believing or of having an emotional experience. Salvation comes when we are ready to surrender our wills to Him. It is not just the words we say, but the attitude of our hearts. If you would like to receive Christ, this is the attitude He is looking for...
"Lord Jesus, I need you. I recognize that I am a sinner and I need your forgiveness. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Come into my life as my Savior and Lord. Take control of the throne of my life and make me the kind of person you want me to be."
If you have given your life to Christ, He wants you to grow in that relationship. Here are some things that will help...

List below are the most common questions that we receive concerning child sponsorships. As always, if you have additional questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 800.266.4977.
Child sponsorship includes prayer and financial support for your child. It costs $32 dollars a month, or $384 a year to sponsor a child. But equally important is the prayer support that your child receives from you. This is the advantage of pairing children with sponsors - the individual attention.
Yes! We encourage you to write to your child . The letters that you write will help build a valuable relationship that your child will never forget. Usually twice a year your child will write to you.
Yes. We do ask that you send money and not gifts-in-kind because of the difficulties involved in shipping packages. The money that is sent for the child will go 100% to the child. Your child's teacher will purchase what the child needs most at that time or you may specify what you would like to have purchased for your child.
Children under the care of AMG receive a hot, nutritious meal and a snack each day along with access to medical care if needed. Children are provided educational opportunities and are tutored if necessary. Childcare center staff members encourage children to take advantage of every opportunity they have to learn new skills. Children are given new outfits of clothing and shoes once or twice a year. Each child is given a clear presentation of the gospel, with the hope that they will become a Christian, and reach his or her world for Christ.
AMG has always approached the care of children with a holistic emphasis...daily food, education, access to medical care and most of all, the gospel. Every child receives more benefits and access to services than any one sponsorship could provide therefore all sponsorship funds are pooled for the maximum benefit of your child and all of those attending their center. Your sponsorship dollars are combined with your fellow sponsors so that every child receives uninterrupted care regardless of the possibility that a sponsor misses sending their sponsorship donation on any given month. Your faithfulness and that of every sponsor giving regularly will ensure the maximum benefits for your child as well as all the children in the Child Sponsorship program.
We understand that circumstances change and sometimes it may be necessary for you to give up your sponsorship. In this situation, notify us and we will begin looking for another sponsor for your child. Meanwhile we will continue the support from the general fund until another sponsor can be found.
While we ask that your sponsorship commitment last at least one year, the length of time during which you sponsor a child is up to you. Sponsorship programs help AMG provide food, clothing, medical care and education to children until they reach age 18. Most of the children AMG serves rely on these programs for their wellbeing. When a sponsorship lapses or is discontinued, AMG will seek out another sponsor rather than discontinue or interrupt the care for that child. Sponsors wishing to extend their relationship with a sponsored child beyond age 18 may do so if the child continues their affiliation with AMG either as a Bible student or National Worker.
AMG sponsors short-term mission trips around the world. Frequently, we will go to countries where childcare centers are located. When we go to the country where your child lives, we encourage you to participate in that trip. Short-term trips are a great way to share the love of Jesus and meet the child that you have chosen to sponsor.
If you are ready to sponsor a child now, write, call, or click here to select a particular child. Or, if you would like us to assign you the child in greatest need, simply write to us. As soon as we receive your first donation of $32, we will send you a photograph and biographical and family information about your child. If you are interested, but have more questions, click here to email your questions or call 1-800-251-7206 and ask for Anna.
