MISSIONS PROJECTS

All Angels’ was pleased to support the following missions activities in 2017:

Younglife (NYC): Through club, camp, and other activities, teenagers with intellectual and developmental disabilities get the chance to experience fun and adventure, develop fulfilling friendships and challenge their limits. Young Life staff and volunteers model Christ’s unconditional love and acceptance as they walk alongside their friends with disabilities, so that God’s love for them becomes tangible in each of their lives. We support the salaries of congregation members working at Younglife.

Intervarsity Fellowship (US): The purpose of InterVarsity is to establish and advance witnessing communities of students and faculty on colleges and universities who follow Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Their vision is to see students and faculty transformed by the gospel, campuses renewed, and world changers developed. We support the salaries of those working in the areas of Spiritual Formation & Prayer, Discipleship, Prayer, Undergraduate Ministries, and Leadership Development.

Catholic Charities – Westchester (US): This ministry works to resettle refugees in Westchester County.

Christian Aid Mission (India): This ministry plants churches, trains new believers for God’s ministry to reach their own people for Christ, and develops indigenous leaders for the newly planted churches. They have a Missionary Training Center in Nagpur and have placed church-planting missionaries in the states of Maharashtra, Jharkhand, and Chhattisgarh.

Diocese of Eastern Himalaya (India): This ministry spreads the Gospel in an area of India where less than 2% of the people are Christian, engaging people in conversation about Jesus through the distribution of blankets and mosquito nets to poor villagers who face harsh winters without heat in their homes and summers where malaria and other-mosquito-borne diseases are extremely common and life-threatening. The ministry also offers a Saturday feeding program for children in the area.

Eleutheros Christian Society (Myanmar): ‘Eleutheros’ means ‘free from’ any form of bondage or enslavement. Their mission is to be witnesses of Christ by creating a free, fair, and just world for the lost, the last, and the least. They seek to extend the Kingdom of God into the Naga villages of Burma by planting churches, developing church and lay leaders, and assisting residents with their health, education and livelihood challenges.
