Leprosy Victim
Leprosy Victim
Leprosy ... The "Living Death"
. One of man's most dreaded diseases because of its appalling effects on the victim's body.

Leprosy Victim
The Promised Land
The Promised Land

ICII has long had a vision for reaching out to the homeless and desperate who are afflicted with leprosy.

In 2007, the Lord provided 11 acres of land where we established a residence for homeless leprosy victims.
Many of these lepers had been tragically abandoned by their families and cast out into the streets or in other unpleasant situations because of their frightful disease. The sad reality is that many lepers are left alone to suffer and die in their terrible state, heartbroken and emotionally shattered because they have no one to love or care for them.

Worship at the Promised Land

Up to a hundred leprosy victims from the area meet every week to worship the Lord Jesus Christ and to hear the word of God in the new church building, named Mark’s Chapel

Worshipping the Lord
Just constructed in the spring of 2009 on the Promised Land, this church, named in memory of  a loving supporter, is a place of worship where everyone is welcome to come and worship Jesus, and everyone is loved, including those afflicted by leprosy.

After the worship service, they get a satisfying, all-you-can-eat meal. For many of these leprosy victims, this is the best food they can get all week.

ICII's Vacation Bible School on the Promised Land!

This spring, over 300 kids, mostly from Hindu families, heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ at our VBS, many for the first time.  Each child got a New Testament and a Gospel tract, and they were taught the word of God. They each also received a gift pack with a notebook and pencil, a snack, a toothbrush and toothpaste, and more. They took their excitement and testimonies home to their families, and their new Bibles and tracts, and told us that they would pray for their Hindu parents and share about Jesus with them.

As we visit leprosy colonies, we often find healthy but poverty-stricken children living there. These children are
trapped in a lifestyle of suffering, need, pain, and rejection because their parents have leprosy.
Many times, the parents can not care for the children, and beg us to take them to a better place.


Our latest project
is to build a separate orphanage building on the property as a home for the needy children of poverty-stricken leprosy victims who are now living in poor leprosy colonies.You can help us provide a loving Christian home for up to 20 children!

"For I was an hungred,and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me"  - Matthew 25:35-40.
