Merry Christmas to all our prayer partners and financial supporters!
May the joy and peace of His salvation overflow from your heart as you
celebrate the birth of the Savior. May this wonderful time of the
year help you touch the heart of people in a special way to show the
love of God. Wish you all a wonderful Christmas !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for your continued prayers and financial support throughout
this year. It is because of your prayers and support that we have been able to reach out
to many unreached areas of India. We saw lives
transformed through the ministry of our graduates. We are so thankful
to the Lord for helping us to start the School of Ministry to train
the locals for the work of the gospel. Previously we were limited to a small area and language was a barrier to communicate the gospel.
Training the locals has eliminated this barrier and expanded our area
of ministry. This year we baptized about 20 people who truly
made a commitment to follow Christ. There are many who are interested
in learning about Jesus and put their faith in Him.
Recently Vinita was used to teach the Word at a ‘Women Conference’ in
another area. More than 850 women from all over India from different
church backgrounds came for the conference. Vinita had never taught
such a big group, therefore, she was scared, but because of your
prayers the Lord gave her boldness to teach. After this conference
she got an invitation to go to China to teach the Word, but she refused
because she had to teach in English. Please pray for her that she
would not hesitate to teach in English.
The School of Ministry students are doing great in learning the Word. We
went to a picnic spot by the stream of river. It was wonderful
experience to learn the Word in the open by the streams of water. We
could feel how people and the disciples of the Lord would have felt
when they were taught by the Lord by the Sea of Galilee.
Last month the students had another exposure of ministry among the
school students through music and testimony. They had opportunity to
go to seven different school in the city with a Christian band for a
week. Students are more open to the gospel. At the end of the program
feedback forms were distributed to the students and many responded .
Please pray that these students would keep searching for the truth and
know the Lord.
We also went for camping last month for two nights to meet the
believers and encourage them in their faith. They
are all doing well in the faith. I (Pastor P.M) am bit sad that I could
not go to this camping trip due to my back problem. My back is troubling
me so much these days. Winter is not good for my health. Please pray
for my health and also for my wife’s health as she has been often sick this
We were recently informed by our missions organization that several of our financial partners have had to cancel their monthly support over the past few months. We would like to request that you please pray about supporting us financially on a monthly basis or giving a one time gift as the Lord leads you so that we are able to continue the ministry that the Lord has called us to. To support us, you can give online at: https://www.egsnetwork.com/gift2/?giftid=E46C575741924CB or by mail make checks payable to SGWM, 17451 Bastanchury Rd, Suite 203, Yorba Linda, CA 92886 and in the memo portion note “Pastor P.M.”
With all good wishes for Christmas and New Year !!!!!!!!!!!
Co-workers in Christ,
Pastor P.M., V.M. and R.M.
