From all the ALC Team & Children!!!
Dear Friends of Abundant Life Care,
At this Holy Season, we at ALC India would like to wish you a blessed holiday season, a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year 2013!
Thank you for being our faithful friends & partners in reaching this dying world for Jesus Christ!
As we close this year, we are depending on the faithful support from those who are committed to reaching the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ!
You can help us meet this challenge... we desire to finish the 2012 year end very strong... So we can go into 2013 with an ability to minister to the least of them!
Isaiah 54:2 New International Version (NIV)
"Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes".
~ Your Friends at Abundant Life Care, Inc. ~
Many of you have prayed for us this year. We are so grateful for you! We are so blessed we can share our life together with you. After serving Jesus on the Missions Field for almost 18 years it is more obvious than ever how faithful and kind the Lord is to His children.
Our hearts are full as God brings all of us into new seasons of growth in Him... We wish we could be there with you all right now!
Sending Much Love - Lee, Praveena & John Daniel Ruud...
And all the Children, Pastors & staff of ALC, India
Happy New Year 2013!

Testimony of Erika and Gus Ibarra 2012
Hello Rev. Lee, Praveena, and your amazing extended family!
I’m so glad to hear how excited you are, but I'm not sure that your excitement can out-do ours! I can't even sit and type because my hands won't let me! We’re so glad that we were able to bless all those beautiful children and your ministry, but most of all to honor Father God.
Lee, about seven years ago, you spoke to us at the Legion Hall one Sunday after church. I was so embarrassed because my son accidentally tripped you, but you just got up and laughed. We began talking, and you spoke life into ours. You told us that God had something great in store for us—so great that even we could not imagine!
You gave me hope with those words, because at that point I truly had none. But from then on, God began to move in our lives. Just a couple of years later we saw you again at Harvest Christian Center’s new building. Again, you repeated those words--God's promise. Those words have now come to pass. God has so greatly blessed us in ways we could never have dreamed!
Thank you for giving us a word from God that we were able to cling to and that would provide us with hope for many years: a word that one day He would transform lives that we saw as hopeless into lives filled with hope, having a great desire to bring Him glory!
We didn't want to let another day pass to bless your ministry with what God has blessed us with! I am excited to see what God will continue to do in India, and I pray that we will one day be able to visit. We so share in your vision to help others.
Thank you for what you do and for your sacrifice to bring hope and life to so many. You are both so amazing!
God bless you all so much!
Erika and Gus Ibarra
