You will never succeed in life if you try to hide your sins. Confess them and give them up; then God will show mercy to you. -Proverbs 28:13

Greetings to you in the precious name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  

God created every thing for a purpose.  The Gospel and Music Association (GAMA) is one among the plans which God had in His mind to fulfill His purpose in this world.  We believe that God formed this association to touch the lives of the people, to transform the cities, to shake the nations by reaching out.  From the day God called us we are acting as a partner with God in fulfilling His purpose in this world.  Now we take this opportunity to introduce this association to you so that you too may be a partner in this ministry of reaching out. Romans 8: 28 says And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 

Origin of GAMA:

GAMA was started in the year 2000 with a great vision to do Holistic Mission’ to the people in need.  Even though it was a meager origin with just a few members, the growth of GAMA is notable.  Now it has more than 250 members, out of which a majority are students.  GAMA provides the opportunity for the youth to act as vibrant tools in the Lord’s vineyard.   

Ministry of GAMA:

GAMA is doing holistic mission among the people.  GAMA is not only meeting the spiritual needs but also meeting the physical and mental needs of the people through various levels of its ministry.  Three various levels of ministry are underway to equip the people to be part of the Kingdom of God.  The spiritual needs of the people are met by GAMA through annual convention meetings cottage prayer meetings, and so on.  The physical needs of the people are met by arranging well wishers to help the family those in need.  Many of the students are getting educational aid to continue their education.  The mental needs of the people are identified by the members during the annual convention and they are brought to the cottage meeting for counseling.  Hence GAMA ministry is well known among the people for its Holistic quality. 

Annual Convention:

From the year it was founded, GAMA is conducting a huge convention meeting in the Cathedral campus with a high budget.  Approximately every day 5,000 to 7,000 people attend this meeting.  The last day of every convention is often over crowded and it goes beyond control.  Every year the budget is increasing and the Almighty God is providing our needs through donors like you.

Cottage Prayer Meeting:

Every Friday evening GAMA conducts cottage prayer meetings at the head office.  Many of the members attend regularly to enrich their spirituality.  This meeting is conducted in the residence of members as well as in other houses on request.   

Educational Aid:

GAMA is meeting the educational expense of many of the students.  The needy students are identified and GAMA approaches well wishers to help the students to continue their education.  Notebooks are also distributed by GAMA in several schools to lessen the burdens of the parents. 

Village Ministry:

Village Ministry is considered to be the most important ministry of GAMA.  Every week a group of people engage in village ministry.  Our goal in village ministry is not to entertain or merely educate the people, but to bring them to a place of maturity into Christ-likeness - both in character and ministry.  Doing ministry among the people of other faiths is very difficult.  We cannot go directly to preach the word of God.  Certain steps need to be followed.  In this ministry, short videos about Christ and Christian life are used.  GAMA uses media, e.g. LCD projector, for the spreading of the Gospel.  Every week GAMA spends about Rs. 1,000 or more for this.  Moreover, we lack the means of transportation and there is an urgent need to have a vehicle for its own to enable the ministry to be powerful in the villages. 

Charity works:

Apart from the educational aid, GAMA is meeting other needs of the people also.  During the time of Christmas, GAMA conducted special carol services and get-together meetings with the economically poor and gave them gifts to celebrate Christmas.  GAMA also renders help to those who lack the finances to conduct funeral services of their dear ones.   

Our Needs:

From the time of its formation, the needs of GAMA have been well satisfied by the grace of God and by the generous contributions of well wishers. Now GAMA is in need of a vehicle to carry the Good News to all.  We are praying for this.  The approximate budget for this vehicle is about 6,00,000 (six lakhs). For this purpose we are approaching you to help GAMA to purchase a vehicle which would facilitate the village ministry and make it more effective.

May God bless you abundantly and enrich your life.  Please pray for GAMA and its ministry.  You are in our prayers.

Thank you,

Yours in His service,
