children. Due to starting work among children they gave name to this ministry the “CHILDREN’S CHAPEL”. As this areas was newly developing, therefore people were far away from God and preaching in this area was equal to nothing. Literacy rate in this area was alarmingly low. People of this area were victim of many social evils, such as illiteracy. They started this ministry in a small room. Children were taught with Bible stories, children songs and with other Sunday school material for their spiritual growth.Since parents were not literate, uncivilized, so no positive changes were coming in children. Children’ habits, and attitudes were not changing in their lives. We worked hard for two years in these children. After receiving no proper response  we thought that children spend most of the time among their parents, so we must also give services among parents of children. We were thinking that when parents lives will change, their good influence will be upon their children.Now Work was started on faith with very small sources. It was a big challenge before us to work in such people. Where about 95 per cent population was uneducated and uncivilized. Due to poverty and uncivilized condition of this area many people were involved in social evils such as drugs addiction, cheap alcohol, heroin etc. It was a challenging task to evangelize and reform the community. Due to poverty and unemployment people were also involved of theft and other social evils.

Due to lack of sources we had to face many difficulties. Because people were themselves facing financial crisis, so they join us for some period and then left us. After that we started working on one house church per 5 families and firstly we trained 5 cell leaders after that we appointed them to make the house churches in their area. And the house church leaders did evangelistic work and started raising small funds for the main objectives of Children’s Chapel. And in this way we started work with these small funds. I and Ester Monday to Saturday we did work in house churches with the house church leaders and on Sundays we gathered in one place for main church Sunday Service. Then with the movement of the Holy spirit, revival came in this area. Gradually house churches increased and numbers of believers also increased day by day.

Our this experience became wonderfully successful, that a children ministry generated other important ministries, i.e
