LoveWorks is passionate about compassionate action. We don’t just teach people to respond to compassion – we practice it.
Presently we are supporting 3 ministries in India that are dependent upon the kindness of other brothers and sisters. We have made a commitment to serving them in prayer and financially. Every donation we receive, a portion is shared with these ministries.
T.L. Haokip is the President and Pastor of a Biblical Theological College and Seminary and the caregiver to an orphanage. He is training a new generation of missionaries and pastors who are willing to lay down their lives for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many are now serving in countries that are hostile to the Gospel such as Nepal, Burma, Tibet, and Northern India. I met this amazing brother in Bangaluru during a LoveWorks conference and the Holy Spirit bonded our hearts together. He is a real inspiration to me and his life’s work cannot be ignored. I believe in him and the call God has given him – we show it by supporting him financially.
Aphao Muivah is the Director to Home of Faith, a children’s home for orphans. We also met Aphao in Bangalore and he invited us to come and visit his children’s home. I broke into tears later as we drove away from a tiny one room shack that 18 children lived in. They all slept on the floor in this tiny room. I could not see this and do nothing. We made a commitment to also financially support this courageous man who loved these children. Aphao’s wife died shortly after giving birth to their 2nd son and this created such a heartbreaking moment for us all. We stand with this brother and the great work he is doing to love the needy children in his care. They deserve tangible support and encouragement – not just prayers.

Paul Venkatesh was born and raised as a hindu in the inner city of Bangaluru. His last name, Venkatesh, is actually the name of the Hindu god where Paul was dedicated as a baby in the Venkatesh temple. When he became a Christian, he wanted to keep his last name as a remembrance of what he came from. He was the first in his family to follow Christ, and for many years was heavily persecuted, even by family members and was finally kicked out of his home. A pastor took Paul into his home and discipled him as an evangelist, and now Paul has a vision of planting “100 churches by the day I die.” Paul has already had two of his church plants destroyed by Hindu radicals, but remains steadfast and faithful, enduring much persecution. He continues to plant churches throughout Bangaluru, Karnataka Gold Fields and Chennai, but remains rooted not just in his home city, but his home community just steps away from the Venkatesh temple of his childhood, caring for his community and leading many to freedom. Paul and his wife also manage orphanages in India caring for the many homeless street children.
