Land Purchase India

Land Purchase



Raising $50,000 to purchase Land in India for a missionary family to build a home/work space.


$50,000 is needed to help a missionary family purchase a parcel of land in northern India. The purchase of this land will allow this family to build a house and continue the ministry God has given them in this area. The availability of houses / apartments to rent is scarce and because of lenient jurisdiction law, tenants can be asked to leave immediately upon the landlord’s request. This grant money would help enable this family to own property and build a house, giving them peace of mind as well as equity that will be a blessing to them in future years. The parcel of land would need to be strategically located between the families current area's of ministry. The average land price per sq. ft. in that area is 75.00 USD to 100.00 USD per sq. ft. and they desire a piece of property anywhere from 1500-1700 sq. ft. Our goal is to raise $50,000 in assisting with the purchase of land. 100% of funds given to this grant will be contributed to the purchase.

our focus GOW is active in the following geographies:

  • 31 Million Orphans
  • 1/6 of Residents Live in a Slum
  • 10 Million Bonded Laborers
  • 4 Million Orphans
  • 50% Don't have any living Kin
  • 5.1 Million children are out of school

The children are just like our children. Only with a lot, lot less opportunities. They love to run. They love to play. They love to learn. And they long for someone to love them. They are just like our children.

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.

1 Corinthians 13

My heart has always been drawn to orphans and children in need, as well as widows. When I heard that GOW worked directly through their ministry in supporting and helping these women and children, I knew I had to be a part of that. And after traveling to India to see firsthand the impact of this ministry, I was deeply touched. I saw firsthand that GOW was having a major role in raising up lives that otherwise would have been discarded in the harsh reality of the life of the poor and forgotten in this nation.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
