Dr. Alex Philip
This past February, Dr. Alex was able to come to the USA and join us on a Sunday morning. The translation work promoted by New India Evang Assoc. has made great strides in translating Bible stories into the mother tongue. 199 pastoral leaders were trained in using mother tongue Bible storying and Scripture this past year. 2719 translated Scriptures have been distributed.
Hundreds of children have returned to the 12 schools organized by NIEA. Five hundred children live in the orphanages. NIEA has the first Bible School accredited in Bihar. The newly built nursing school was dedicated in April of 2022. Despite covid restrictions, NIEA has made great progress this past year under the capable leadership of Dr. Alex and his staff. We will continue to support the work in the orphanages by sponsoring children and assisting with food, clothing and school materials.
