Pure Ministries was founded in 2015 by Nick Sandusky of Arkabutla Baptist Church with the intention of providing physical and spiritual nourishment to orphans around the world. PureNations believes that the future of this world will reside in the next generation. We desire to reach the next generation with the Gospel before they are impacted by the lost world around them. PureNations is of the conviction that God has blessed us greatly, and it is our responsibility to use those blessings to advance the kingdom of God.
Luke 12:48b, “For everyone to whom much is given, much will be required and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.”
Psalm 68:5, “A father of the fatherless, and a defender of the widows, is God and his holy habitation.”
In 2015 the Lord allowed me (Pastor Nick Sandusky) to go on a mission trip to India, for the sole purpose of training pastors. The pastor (a great Christian brother) who hosted the training was doing his best to care for abandoned children, as well as be faithful to his ministry. It was absolutely astonishing to me the living conditions of these children, not to the fault of the pastor, he was doing the best he could with the resources that he had. What stuck with me most from this trip was the need for the children. This pastor was trying to run a Christian orphanage with hardly any resources. Long story short, when I got back I pitched a ministry idea to our church (Arkabutla Baptist) called "PureNations" this ministry was to help provide for orphans and widows around the world, and they responded overwhelmingly.
Our first project was to help sustain this Orphanage in India. Soon we sponsored all 12 of the children in Prince & Princess Orphanage agreeing to meet their, physical, material and medical needs. Well fast-forward a couple years and we are still supporting these 12 plus a several more. However, the need is great, and every time we sponsor a child another one is in need; currently there are 3 children who are without support. While this pastor helps meet there material needs, he is also investing into their spiritual needs. All the kids in this orphanage are immersed in the Gospel from a young age.
It is my belief that we have been blessed abundantly in our country (USA), and that God gave us those blessings not to waste on ourselves, but to expand the Kingdom of God. This first project is just the beginning, Lord willing PureNations will be able to impact the world in a mighty way for years to come.
PureNations partnered with John Scudder in 2015. John is the President and founder of South Asia Evangelical Mission, and is faithfully serving the Lord in his native country of India. John is the founder of Prince and Princess Orphanage and is currently trying to expand their ability to care, minister and reach children in need. As of now Prince & Princess Orphanage is unable to house anymore children due to the state of their present facilities. Pastor John's desire is to build a building that can house 40 children with enough land to farm, raise livestock and as a result become SELF-SUSTAINING.
John is faithful to meet the physical needs of these children, but his chief concern is for their souls. These children are immersed in the Gospel and shown the love of Christ by the leaders of Prince & Princess. We would love to partner with you in this ministry.
If you would like to support this ministry in any way. please visit our FB page and send us a message.
PureNations has almost raised $20,000 towards the land for Prince & Princess. In January 2018, PureNations sent two men to India to see first-hand the work that was taking place. The Lord is doing great things through Pastor John Scudder & Prince and Princess.
