Pastor M’s Heart for Mumbai
The Lord laid Rays of Hope Ministry on Pastor Manoj’s heart in 2002. After obeying God through giving every rupee he had to begin Rays of Hope. This included all of his savings from 1994-2002.
Pastor Manoj could no longer ignore the thousands of children who are homeless/orphaned in the city. He was able to rent a small room and take children in. This was the start of what is now Ashalaya (which means House of Hope). Ashalaya has since cared for 135 children! Praise God!
After prayerfully awaiting for 10 long Manoj and Priya were married on December 8, 2007. For 4 years prior to the wedding, the couple saved up. Months before the wedding, God led them to pray over the Red Light District and slums of Mumbai. The Lord spoke to them, “begin Hope Center”.
They needed a place to rent but the ministry had no money to pay the security deposit and rent. Priya called Manoj and encouraged him to use the money they had saved for their wedding… just 45 days before the wedding! They sowed all they had (the Lord wonderfully provided for every single expenses of their wedding!
The HOPE Center is serving hundreds of children and women every single day. Rays of Hope now owns that property and will begin remodeling the building very soon. Manoj and Priya have two beautiful daughters!
Pastor Manoj & Priya’s story continues with God leading them to purchase 30 acres of land to be called the City of Hope…
