serving globally

At Maranatha we believe that God’s purpose in empowering us to be His witnesses was never meant to stay within the walls of our building (see Acts 1:8). The message of the Gospel is something that we desire to take to the ends of the earth. If you would like to take a next step, we invite you to learn more about the people and ministries we support GLOBALLY. We also invite you to pray for them and ask God how you might become involved.

    children's relief international

    Since 2012 I have been working with a project in India. Smriti Maity is the project leader of Mudpaths in Kolkata, ministering to over 300 children and prostitutes weekly with 3 functioning pre-schools offering a good start for public school and hearing the Gospel daily. The first time I traveled to Kolkata I taught the Bible study in the Red-Light District and loved being with the prostitutes. I could see the pain in their eyes. I wrapped my arms around their precious bodies and knew this is what I was to be doing in this season of my life. In my life too, I had experienced "powerlessness". We have a new ministry called Mudpaths Rescue. Our goal at CRI is to place daughters and sons of prostitutes and those from slum areas into boarding schools. Thus far we have placed 7 girls.
