Pastor Marty's Story:
Growing Up In the Slums


May 2015

Do you remember your childhood? Pastor Marty does. He grew up in the slums of Mumbai enjoying innocence even in extreme poverty. Through many hardships, Marty lost all hope until he encountered the love of Jesus in a very real and practical way: the healing of his son.

After graduating from a Bible college, he returned to the slum he grew up in and is passionately sharing Jesus' love with those who are struggling.

Join Pastor Marty and let the world know nothing, not even extreme poverty, can cover the love of Christ.

Ministry that Gospel for Asia is supporting in the slums:

Since 1999, Gospel for Asia has been supporting ministry to those who live in the slums of South Asia in various ways:

  • Providing free medical clinics and teaching basic hygiene and preventative health measures
  • Providing literacy classes for adults
  • Conducting tutoring classes for children
  • Holding weekly Sunday schools

Many fellowships have been started as our missionaries bring hope by living out the sacrificial love of Christ. You can play a part!
