API Eight Mission Trip Highlights
- Published 02/10/2015
Many families around the world living in the most difficult times. I can hear over and over is voices of hunger, pain, conflicts, misunderstanding, anxiety and depression, delusions and hallucinations. Mental health issues and counseling needs have grown significantly in India and across the world in the 21st century. I believe our faith, education, and research must address the mental health care needs facing humanity by incorporating both scientific and faith based perspectives and finding innovative and affordable ways to address these challenges. We have an unparalleled opportunity and potential to impact the lives of families experiencing depression, suicide, addiction, and family crisis situations by offering respectful, meaningful, and effective care , counseling and treatment. As a community we cannot ignore the suffering our brothers and sisters are facing.

We live in an era where Psychology plays an integral part on the situation of marriage and related events. However, great marriages are built on a foundation of trust and not on behavioral skills. Emotional security is the cornerstone for the relationship that one wants or you simply need to feel secure in your marriage. How can we achieve that? The Bible brings us to the basics of the definition of marriage as we search for an answer. The best definition for marriage in the Bible comes from Genesis 2:24 – For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be united to his wife and they will be one flesh.
Among the Indian Churches, one-third of the young people said they were dissatisfied with the current church environment. Youths think that church is not having a positive influence on them. They are discontent with the adults in the church, especially with adult failure to live up to the truths they profess to believe.
