Ministry Location: India
Ministry Focus: Jorge and Jacina have been doing missions in India for the past 16 years.
Presently they are involved in church planting and social work. They started a church in the City of Bodhgaya, Gaya district, about seven years ago with just a few families. That church is now legally registered in India under the name “Promise Church”, and they presently have about 2000 people attending services weekly. They have built six church buildings in the villages, all paid for and property of Promise Church India. They have a training center where they train people for the ministry. Presently they have one senior pastor and seven evangelists on staff, full time. Every year, they do a day long medical camp, where they hire local doctors and nurses and provide free consultations and medication for hundreds of people. They also do a two-day evangelistic crusade that attracts thousands, and every year they have dozens of people giving their lives to Jesus and many get healed and delivered.
They have started several orphanages in India. Presently they support one in Bodhgaya with 10 orphans. This is a fairly new work that they plan to expand as funds come in. Not only do they care for the children, but they also have them attending a private school and learning English.
About six years ago, they started a rescue home in the city of Hyderabad for Dalit (lowest cast in India) girls. Most of them were used as Temple prostitutes or were sold by their families to the sex trafficking business. Presently that “rescue home” has 48 girls that are being cared for by a full time staff of several workers from Operation Mobilization India. All the girls attend a Christian School from Good Sheppard Churches India and all of them are doing very well. This year they had the joy of seeing two of the girls finishing high school and continue on into college! Praise God! This rescue home is under the total leadership of OM India.
