Warm greetings and blessings for the new year. I hope and pray that you had a meaningful time with friends and family this Christmas Season.
As TRACI, the year 2022 was very eventful. We are grateful for the number of people we were able to intentionally influence either through our training, research or reflections. We are also grateful for your prayers and willing contributions. As we begin the new year, the Lord has promised to lead us, as we set our eyes on Him. We do see more opportunities to minister through the Churches and Mission Organisations. The Lord in his purposes is also bringing in people to serve the movement and we are grateful.
By March 2023, we have two training programmes lined up on Integral Mission (in Hindi for local Pastors and in English through an online platform). TRACI will also host two paper presentations; one on ‘Engaging a gendered World’ and the other by Research Scholar on ‘Faith & Scholarship’.
I make this special appeal; would you partner with us in meeting all our financial needs. Please find below the TRACI annual budget and the monthly breakdown. As reflected in the account, while the yearly budget is ₹ 58,26,000 ($ 70,327), our monthly need is around ₹ 4,85,500 ($5,860).

We are able to raise about 50% of this need. May we seek your gracious partnership in the ministry of TRACI. We do have a short fall of almost 50% of the need. While we are making efforts to raise this need, I realise the need of individual partners to stand with us in prayer and extend your willing contributions.
