Dwelling in the Word of God

Praise the Lord!

Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you, dear supporters and prayer partners, for your prayers and financial support. We are praying for your family and your country. By the grace of God, my family and I are doing well. God has kept us safe.

Joining Together Online for Our Friday Prayer Meeting

Because of the lock-down, we organize Sunday services through Google Meet. All of the believers join with us online. I got the opportunity to deliver the Word of God to them.

I also got a chance to share the Word of God through the Christian Youth Ministry group. In that group, most of them are young adults and from villages. Please pray for them–that they may grow in the Word of God.

Sharing the Word of God with Young Adults

Nowadays, we are studying and learning from a different book of the Bible. Every day we meet through Google Meet along with pastor 15*, pastor 3*, and other ministry workers. Together we have a Bible study time. Through this, God is helping us to learn from the Word of God and we also correct ourselves.

Also, every Friday we have a prayer meeting. All of our family members join. Our kids also share what they have memorized from the Word of God, and songs and stories from the Bible. Through this, they are growing in God’s Word.

Prayer Requests:

Studying the Bible Together Daily With Other Ministry Workers
  • Please pray that my children may grow in the fear and knowledge of the Lord.
  • Please pray that the Lord would intervene in the problem the world is facing.
  • Please pray for the village ministry in my local area- that the villagers may grow in the Lord’s Word.

Blessings,

Pastor 16* and Family

We Were Able to Start In-Person Church Services

We thank the Lord that we have been able to start having church services. Because of the lock-down and Covid, we were unable to open our church for a long time. But, God is faithful–during that time, He helped us and kept us safe. In December, we started opening our church for in-person services again. People started coming and attending the services. Please pray for them to grow in God’s Word.

Sharing At the Wedding Service

Last month, a brother from a Calvary Chapel got married. We had the opportunity to be part of the wedding ceremony. The Lord helped us to conduct the ceremony. The bride and groom are both Christians. Please pray that the new family will grow in their faith.


We had a good Christmas season. We celebrated Christmas with local believers and family. It was a nice time to get together after being apart for so long.
Last month, believers that we are discipling went through persecution. They were called to a village meeting in their home village. There, the leaders offended them by swearing at them and tried to force them to reject Christ. By God’s grace, the believers got a chance to explain their faith while all the village people were gathered together for the meeting. Afterward, the believers were told that they will not be aloud to have jobs and the strong opposition/penalties they will get. But, they still stood strong in their faith. Please pray for them.


Sharing At the Wedding Service

Prayer Requests:

  • Please pray that our children will grow in the fear and knowledge of the Lord.
  • Please pray that the Lord would intervene in the problem the world is facing.
  • Please pray for the local village ministry- that the people will grow in the Lord’s Word.

Blessings,

Christian Burial Service of a Woman from Our Church

Last month, one of our church members passed away. She was a good believer from our church, who lived in a nearby village. She was from a Hindu family. When she died, her relatives who are unbelievers also came to her funeral. They wanted to do her funeral the Hindu way. But her son, who is also a believer, stood firm and the burial was done in the Christian way.  So, we got the chance to conduct the funeral. So many non-believers also came to the funeral and we shared about Jesus Christ to them. They heard silently about Christ. We thank the Lord for that.


Here, in our country, non-Christians have their own way of burials. They perform some pooja (demonic idol worship) for the peace of the departed soul. Only men are allowed to attend the funerals. Women stay at home. Please pray for the family members who are believers–that they would continue to grow in their faith.


I went to a different state in the North to attend a wedding. God helped me to visit that area. We had a good time with the family and enjoyed the worship that was before the ceremony. It took about a 14 hour journey by car to get there. The roads were so horrible, but the Lord helped us to reach there safely. That place is filled with Hindu temples. People from all over the country come to worship there. But in the center of the city there is a church. I thank the Lord for keeping His people there to share the Gospel.  

Prayer Requests:

  • Please pray for my children-that they may grow in the fear and knowledge of the Lord.
  • Please pray that the Lord would intervene in the problem the world is facing.
  • Please pray for the local village ministry–that they may grow in the Lord’s Word
  • Please pray for the state in the North that I visited. May God’s work expand in that area.

God bless you,

Pastor 16 and Family*

Sharing the Word of God Through Social Media

I thank the Lord for opening new doors for me to share the Word of God. I am preaching from Ephesians once a month through Facebook during Sunday church services.

I thank the Lord that during this lock-down, He gave the opportunity to draw closer to Him as I am spending more time in prayer and studying the Word of God. It is so interesting to learn from the book of Galatians as I prepare myself for audio teachings.
