ABOUT US

 

 

The Light of Hope Mission in India is headed up by Pappy Daniel who came to know the Lord as his personal saviour at the age of 17. After graduating from high school, he attended a teacher’s training programme and became a public school teacher in India.

He taught in the public school system for 8 years but then he felt the Lord called him to full time Christian ministry. This caused him to resign his job and he set about witnessing and evangelising after equipping himself with gospel tracts which he distributed in the villages to tell the folks about new life in Jesus Christ. Daniel also began visiting houses door to door trying to reach people for Christ, one at a time.

As Daniel walked through the villages, sometimes with his family, they saw the abject poverty of the village children. It was often easy to count the childrens ribs and it was impossible to not notice their hyper-extended bellies. The children were also without proper clothings due to the miserable living conditions of their parents. Because no one cared for these precious children, they were unable to obtain a proper basic education. This was the reason and motivation for the ministry of Pappy Daniel that caused him to open an orphan home for children in Kerala at Cheppad in the Alleppey district not far from a famous tourist resort known as the lagoon area.

In addition to the orphanage which currently looks after around 120 children there is also a thriving christian fellowship at Cheppad . This includes children who also meet for worship on Sundays and there are house groups in the poor villages where there are no church buildings at all.
