The Indian Orphanage and Deaconesses
The funding and administration of the Church orphanage(s) in India is the responsibility of the Deaconesses under the presidency of the Matriarchate with such assistance from other Priesthood Councils as shall be offered or requested. Ministry to the poor and afflicted is a duty of the Church in all ages and at all times. Cooperation with non-New Covenant agencies is desirable [Oppsal, Oslo, Norway].
1. The Word and will of the Lord concerning the relief of the poor and afflicted in the land of India:
2. Let the saints organise themselves in General Conference, by covenant and by sacrifice, and execute My commandments in this matter (NC&C 74).
The Responsibility of the Deaconesses
3. It is the especial responsibility of the Deaconesses to administer relief;
4. Therefore let the sisters of My Church shoulder the burden of collecting for this project, giving an especial responsibility unto the Deaconess' Councils which in each Colony shall go unto the saints, and to the world, petitioning for funds.
5. And let the Deacons' Council also assist, and all those in the other Councils who have been sanctified by the spirit of this work.
The Matriarchate's Responsibility
6. Let the Matriarchate co-ordinate this work, delaying not.
7. Ye shall establish a separate fund for this purpose that all, whether memberor non-member, may contribute toward this treasury.
Helpers from Outside the Church
8. Ye shall by non means forbid those not of the New Covenant from assisting, for as I have told you before, there are many who are labouring outside the Covenant, yea, even a great army of workers, who are sanctified to one degree or another by the Light of Christ.
9. The needs of the poor and physically afflicted transcend spiritual boundaries, saith the Lord, and therefore thou shalt allow no spirit of sectarianism to be a barrier to the relief of suffering.
Co-operating With Outside Agencies
10. Let the Deaconesses work with those organisations and agencies I lead them to seek assistance from, calling for the assistance of the men's Councils as they shall have need of them.
Drug Addicts and Alcoholics
11. Blessed is he who hath worked with drug-addicts and alcoholics in times past and present, for there is no more noble work than to be an agent in setting free those in bondage.
12. Ye are called to minister to the sick in mind, body and soul as ye are able, as ye receive the keys of knowledge, and according to your faith.
Learn from Others
13. Learn from those churches and organisations who know of these ministries as ye have need of them until ye are able to provide such ministries yourselves, and have been endowed with power, that ye may stand independent of all these societies, like Mine apostles of old.
14. Labour with mercy and intelligence, for this is very pleasing unto Me.
Feed My Sheep
15. Feed My sheep inwardly and outwardly, and minister unto those who have no shepherds (Jn.21:17).
Workers of the Cross
16. I am calling you to be workers of the Cross, entering into My ministry, ye saints of the New Covenant, doing all the works of the Son, and greater, to the glory and honour of God the Father.
17. Minister as humble servants unto all, great and weak, rich and poor, healthy and sick, that no child of God may be neglected. Even so. Amen.
