While doing evangelical work on the railway stations, Sis.Maria witnessed a child rag pickers sweeping and begging on the train. Something happened to her that day. Mysterious are the ways of the Lord! She was moved at the sight with compassion. She also found many children on streets, railway platforms, spending nights and their lives on the pavement, estranged from the safe havens of a home and having lost their childhood and exposed to high risk.
Many children at a young age, both from rural and sub-urbs stray and land up in Chennai. They leave their homes and come to the city due to various reasons: to evade school, to escape the harsh treatment by parents and step-parents, passion to meet film stars, looking for job, money and easy life, etc. They are at a very high risk of abduction, child-labour, sexual abuse, drug-addiction, etc... She met the many disoriented children and youth on the streets and railway platforms and rag-pickers and motivated and counseled them towards a better and brighter future. Realizing the enormity of their problems and their number Maria felt the need for an Organization and to protect a home for such children, dignity and freedom and to facilitate and assure them their childhood, healthy growth and development in a natural way. To show the compassionate face of Jesus to these little children and to share with them. This ministry has given them quality food, shelter, clothing, education, life skills, discipline, job and many more, along with the joy of a loving home and family. This ministry has been organizing Evening centres in city's slums and backward areas to motivate and facilitate the education of the poor and less fortunate children of these areas, we have 35 boys (orphans, rag-pickers and very poor children) and are supported on the areas. Our ministry did the sowing, the christ family did the watering, the friends of children manured it and God gave the Growth! How great are your works, O Lord!

Jesus Only Way To Heaven is an evangelistic ministry is born of the Spirit of God with the purpose of carrying out the commission that Jesus gave to his disciples in the 16th Chapter of Mark verses 15 through 18. “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover". It is the belief of this ministry that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners.
