In 1983 Larwin and Silvia Nickelson set up a sewing school in the town of Kolar Gold Fields in South India. This allows women access to a free education, and to earn a small salary. After one year of training they are able to find jobs as tailors, and to take care of themselves. More and more women with Hindu or Muslim background have also developed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Monovah Nickelson is the brother of Larwin. He leads the missionary work in South India that his father began over 50 years ago. At present, the ministry includes at least 30 churches, a Bible college, sewing schools for underprivileged women, and an orphanage.
The overall concept of the organisation is evangelism, church planting, biblical, and practical training among the unreached and lost people in other nations. This is done in collaboration with local leaders with the aim of capacity building. Motivated by Christian charity Ein Herz für Nationen e.V. is also supporting humanitarian aid programmes in areas of crisis and disaster in order to help people by word and deed.
