...of how God connected Minnesota to ACM-India's ministry.
ACM India MN was created to support and partner with Agape Christian Mission in Tamil Nadu, India. In early 2014, Natalie Rowley, a young woman from Minnesota, felt a call on her heart to go and serve the children and people of India. When researching non-profit organizations she came upon the website for Agape Christian Mission. She contacted Rajan, the director of the mission, who told her he would be visiting the United States in the spring and would be speaking at a church in Minnesota. This church turned out to be 10 miles from Natalie's home. Natalie, along with her parents, David and Cheryl Rowley, went to hear Rajan speak and meet with him about the possibility of Natalie serving at ACM.
The seed was planted that spring day in 2014.
That year, Natalie went to India to spend time with Rajan and his wife Helen. During her time there she met the children they minister to and witnessed all that God was doing through these two amazing people.
Since then, Natalie and her husband, Dave, had the opportunity to live and serve alongside Rajan and Helen in India. Teaching English, feeding the poor, praying for the sick and loving the precious children of Champion Home. Natalie's parents and sister were able to visit in the winter of 2016 and again in the fall of 2018. The love and passion Dave and Natalie have for ACM has now extended to her whole family.
Out of those seeds of love, ACM India MN was created. Our hope is to share the work that Rajan and Helen are so faithfully doing. Our goal is to support and help provide them with resources to continue their mission to serve the children and people of India.
