Update from Church of the Risen Christ

To the members of IPC, who have given so generously in 2022:

I hope you are doing well. I am sending you a detailed report below about how the funds we receive are being used. I also want to use this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to IPC for providing us with funds to cover the bulk of our expenditure and share a few photos and videos with you.

We couldn't have done all this without your support. We are very grateful indeed and thank the Lord for the opportunity to partner with you to reach so many suffering people in our country with God's love. We pray that the Lord will continue to bless our brothers and sisters in IPC and use them to reach more people.
