Medical Ministry

CICM’s Medical Ministry is bringing healing and hope to more and more people through the prayerful support of CICM partners like you. With its humble beginnings as a makeshift Mission Hospital serving a few thousand in the heart of Damoh, the medical ministry has grown to reach even more communities. In addition to that Mission Hospital in Damoh, we now have a dental clinic, a Nursing College, and medical camps held regularly in remote villages throughout the region. With a medical team of over 100 personnel and eighteen doctors, more than 5,000 patients are treated every month! For that we praise God!
Because of supporters like you, the CICM Medical Ministry spreads care and healing to these communities in need, but also something even more powerful: the hope found only in the Gospel message! It is common for those with disabilities, illness, or disease to become out casts – the untouchables. Their beliefs in false gods lead them to believe that these physical ailments resulted from past lives. Children born with a cleft pallet are ostracized from their communities. Through the love of Jesus Christ and the healing touch of compassion, the CICM ministry team is able to share help and hope with these outcasts. Every life is sacred and deserves love and care that Jesus offers every day.
Your prayers and support of CICM’s Medical Ministry provide the foundational resources needed for the Mission Hospital, Nursing College, and medical camps. CICM relies on God’s blessings and the generous support of our partners to continue being the hands and feet of Jesus to the people of India and the surrounding countries.

Church Planting

The Bible is clear in commanding Believers to share the news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the world! Within the last year, CICM has planted over 320 churches throughout India and the surrounding regions! Praise God for His faithful provision and hand on these Churches!

Often times, churches in India look much different than the brick and mortar buildings we are so familiar with in America. Sometimes they begin as just as shacks, held together with scrap wood. It could be a tarp set up in attempt to protect from the elements, or it can even be a large tree, offering shade, to gather under.

What makes these gathering places “Churches” are the Brothers and Sisters attending, hungry for God’s Word! Despite the difficulties and persecution they face, thousands of people come to worship. In fact, more than 400,000 people attend a service in a CICM church every Sunday!

God is good, and we are so thankful we can trust in Him to continue to draw people closer to Him. To learn more about Church Planting through CICM, visit our website,

Thank you for your faithful partnership, both in prayer and financially!

The Healing Touch, Once Untouchable

Even as a doe-eyed child playing in the dust of her village, Priya was considered part of an untouchable caste. Because of her family’s lack of resources, education, and social standing, she had little hope of opportunity for schooling or work outside of field laborer. For her, being untouchable would mean a lifetime of rejection and hard labor, with opportunities miserly guarded by karma, the belief that prior life actions determine status in life now.

Today, an operating room technician hands Priya a sterile blue towel to dry her just washed, ready-for-surgery, hands. Priya is part of a surgery team at the Mission Hospital in Madhya Pradesh, India, operated by Central India Christian Mission. After putting on her gloves, she prepares the instruments and medicines to be used in today’s surgery, a hernia repair. Her healing touch is no longer considered the polluting touch of an untouchable; she assists doctors treating all people, regardless of social class.

When just a child, Priya was afforded the opportunity to go to school by the Children’s Fund Program that CICM operates. It provides children with school uniforms, educational expenses and even daily food. And later, at the urging of both Ajai and Indu Lall, founders of CICM, Priya decided to attend the nursing school also operated by CICM. “I decided to become a nurse so that I could return and help my village people. From my childhood I have seen so many diseases…that inspired me to go and do the nursing training course and come back to my village to serve my people.”

Once a week, Priya leaves her work at the gleaming Mission Hospital and returns to her childhood village. Her crisp, light-colored nurse’s uniform stands in stark contrast to the colorful, flowing saris of the village women as she stops to take blood pressure, hand out cold medicine, distribute vitamins or give general health advice. She says that God has helped her fulfill her vision — to help the people of her village. “I am serving my Lord Jesus Christ through my capabilities and my education. I am no longer considered untouchable.” And, she adds with a slight shy smile, “I am getting a good young man, from a good background. I am getting engaged to him and getting married very soon.”

In order to offer this type of opportunity to other young men and women, we need you to get involved. A $265 gift provides housing for one student this year. Please pray that God will provide housing resources for each student over the next three years. Your gift today will provide safe and secure student house for decades to come. Please pray about what the Lord is laying on your heart to give. Click HERE to give now!*

*Please be sure your gift is designated specifically for, “Nursing College Dorm.”

Prayer for CICM

Screen Shot 2016-08-19 at 10.32.17 AM

We have seen God provide in many ways throughout the 30+ years since Central India Christian Mission was founded. His faithfulness continues to show through our supporters and we are grateful to witness that goodness.
One way in particular we have seen the Lord work is through prayer! Today we ask that you join us in bringing these requests before the Lord.

  • Please pray for our special needs children – those who are blind, deaf and crippled. Pray that we will be able to educate them in the right way with the love and message of Jesus Christ.
  • Please pray as we work under our State and National Governments that are not favorable to minorities. Pray that we will continue to fulfill the Great Commission in spite of the barriers.
  • Please pray that we will be able to have enough support to send the graduates of our Bible College to the unreached areas.
  • Please pray as we are trying to raise enough funds for 2000+ children with our Every Child program. 
If you feel led to give financially to any of these areas, we would be incredibly grateful! Please click the Give Now button to do so. Thank you for walking alongside us in prayer as we seek the Lord first in showing His love to this Nation.

CICM Evangelism – Taking The Gospel To The Ends Of the Earth!

Screen Shot 2016-07-20 at 11.38.15 AM

Many parts of India are hostile and hurting. Culturally, compassion is not practiced or received. This makes the stories of the life of Christ very impactful as people learn about His life full of compassion and servanthood.

Sharing the life changing message of Jesus Christ with the lost is the passion of the CICM Evangelists. They dedicate their lives to building relationships, serving their communities and teaching the Word of God. Through their efforts and by God’s grace, we have seen hundreds come to know the love of our Savior and experience healing!

Letter from Lashi – Children’s Update & Needs

Dear Friends,

Greetings from the Children’s Home!

I hope and pray you are doing well.

On behalf of the CICM Children’s Homes here in India, I wanted to send you a note of thanks for all your love, prayers and support throughout the year for our children. We are so thankful to each one of you for your contributions towards caring for the needs of the children here in India! Because of your support, hundreds of children who had been abandoned and disowned now have a home, a family, good food to eat, and are receiving an education. Above all, they are being raised in an environment where they see, feel, hear and learn about the love of Jesus! 

With Christmas fast approaching, several churches have asked how they can help the children and/or the Children’s Homes. The following is a list of important projects that we are working on that your church may wish to take on. We rely on God’s blessings and your partnership to accomplish each project. Big or small, they are a HUGE blessing for the children!

Due to security issues, we cannot list the needs and items our website. If you are interested in giving a gift toward this cause, please email We are grateful for your partnership and all the ways you help us show the love of Christ!

The Slum Church

When it rains in a slum just outside the metropolis of Meerut in India, only the mosquitos are happy – and maybe the small children. They love to play in the water-turned-mud that runs between their living quarters, closely packed shelters held together with throwaway plastic, wood and metal. Parents, who want better for their families, hope for a day their children will have safer places to enjoy.

“We don’t have anything here. We don’t have land. We don’t have a house. Nothing. This is everything,” says Kunal* as he motions around the spot he and his family call home. About 5,000 similar structures house the members of two tribal groups that are trying to seek out a living in this squatters’ land. With very little education, and few employable skills, it’s a challenge even to hope for a different kind of life.

Pastor Rohit*, his family and church members are reaching out to this community by bringing the Gospel as well as practical items these families can’t afford, like blankets and food. One of his church members says about his relationship with those in the slum, “Christ went to every person…there was no one too low or too high. There are few people that come to help people like this. That is why I decided to work here.”

By investing time and resources here, church members are building relationships and the people in the area are beginning to respond. Kunal and his family now attend services at the black plastic and bamboo building where the church body gathers. He says, “I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. He has transformed my life. My children were sick and when we prayed…our children were healed.” Experiences like that give him hope for the future.

*Names have been changed for security purposes.

A Life Worth Dying For

Brothers and Sisters,

My son-in-law, Josh Howard, and I wrote Christian Extremism because God laid this message on our hearts. As Christians, we’ve been called to something bigger than this life and this book is a call to action for Christians to get out of their comfort zones and become Christian extremists.

In Christian Extremism we tell personal stories, as well as stories and testimonies from people who are living an extreme Christian life. If you would like to learn more about the book, read what others are saying or purchase the book, please visit 100% of the proceeds go directly to CICM.

Thank you for your continued love, prayers and support. We are grateful for you.
