    * The Jaipur Anugrah Ashram was purchased in 2014 to reach out to the state of Rajasthan. As much as it is a desert the gospel too has scarcely reached people of this state. DBI was able to train 700 men and women in their one week, one month and one year courses since 2014. Due to the constraints in space, they are unable to train more and have had to send away prospective students. In 2017 they plan to expand the center to make room for more classrooms and dormitories. The project would cost $250,000. Pray that God will provide these funds for the expansion of the Jaipur Anugrah Ashram.
