This month your gift will go towards JKPS’ Mobile Medical Services
JKPS has a medical program that delivers quality medical services to the poor living in rural areas of West Bengal and neighbouring states where medical services are inaccessible or of low quality. JKPS has developed a mobile medical unit with three built in clinics: general medical, eye and dental. There is a high demand for the mobile clinic in many remote communities.

PLEASE PRAY: JKPS needs your prayers. Please pray for the health, encouragement and safety of their workers as they share the love of Christ. Pray for the people of West Bengal and for the leadership of India. Pray that those who are suffering would know that they are loved and would be taken care of. Pray that God would be known in India.
