From the President
A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
NEW CLOTHES AND SHOES TO
ORPHAN, DESTITUTE CHILDREN
I take this opportunity of wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
Seems like 2016 has just flown away. At AIM ASIA, the year closed with a planning meeting of our Coordinators in Kolkata and celebrations in all our activity centers where new clothes, shoes and blankets were given to the orphan, destitute children, widows and the leprosy patients.
It was a joyful time for every one!

A MILLIONAIRE TODAY,
DO NOT LET THIS YEAR
PASS BY NON-PRODUCTIVE!
The Year comes and the year goes. Does it matter?
There are still people in the world today who cannot read the date on their calendar. It does not matter to them if today is a Saturday or a Monday.
The Year comes and the year goes. Does it matter to them?
There are people who live just for today with no plans for tomorrow. They forget God has gifted us with a journey in this life between our first breath and the last breath. They do not care to know that what we do between these two breaths impact our eternity.
When we think about eternity, there is a feeling that eternity is something beyond the time, beyond this life – it is where God is.
Our God does not dwell in eternity; rather the eternity dwells in Him (Isa 57:15).
Therefore we do not have to get to eternity to meet our God. But when we have God, we have eternity in us: “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also put eternity in their hearts…” (Eccl 3:11).
Awesome! Times passes but eternity does not. Everything that passes in time passes into eternity. Therefore those who have eternity in them think beyond the time. They are careful to leverage their time in order to impact eternity.
Do you wonder why the wealthy cricketer C. T. Studd emptied his life and his bank balance into world mission? Do you wonder why David Brainerd preferred to live in the woods and die at the age of 29? Do you wonder why David Livingston didn’t care about being torn by wild animals? Do you wonder why David Wilkerson risked his life to take the good news to the mafia?
Do you wonder?
There were many predictions that the world would come to an end in 2013. The world did not end but many lives have perished. Two more months, this year will be gone with a few of our impressions. Many may not care about it but someone is collecting these impressions we make in time and how they impact our eternity.
The Apostle Paul warned the Christians at Corinth, "Each one's work will become clear, for the Day will declare it because it will be revealed by fire; the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is (1Cor 3:13).
Paul actually did not say anything new. Jesus had made it amply clear in the parable that He taught (Luke 16:20-31), giving a vivid description of how a rich man's glory turned into ashes overnight.
My Dear Friend, are you doing anything today for your eternity? Do not let this year pass by non-productive.
“There is surely a future hope for you; do not let your hope be cut off” (Proverbs 23:18).
