February 2017

We want to apologize for writing to you bit late. Since we came back from our trip to another state in India, we were caught up with so many works and activities. Thank you for your prayers for us and our time traveling. We had wonderful time with our relatives and friends. We enjoyed time with them. It was good to see my (Pastor P.M.’s) mom after a year. She is 88 years old. In January she fell down on the floor at home and got a deep cut on the top of her left eye socket, but the Lord protected her eye. Though her eye became red for a week due to blood clot now she is well. We got opportunity to minister to the people from the Word. It seems that time passed so fast.

We came back to the North India on January 31st. We are busy with the School of Ministry and church ministry. It is joy to teach the Word to these young men in SOM and in cottage meeting and to visit families. The only thing that is not favorable is the weather. The cold weather of the north does not suit us. Both of us are not doing too good health wise. But we are growing in the Lord and the power of His Spirit.

Please continue to pray for our ministry in India. Our graduates are being used by the Lord mightily. One of our graduates showed Jesus movie in two villages . In one village 800, and in another about 500 people came to see the movie. With another graduate, the whole village came for the Christmas program and all of them raised their hands when asked if they want to  accept Jesus as their personal Savior. The very next day they came to our graduate (brother) and threatened him to not to preach about the Christian God.In another village where our another brother was taking Sunday Service one of the believer girls father came in and slapped his daughter and started yelling. The girl was so embarrassed because her father slapped her before all the believers. He had never beat her before. But she did not stopped coming for the Service. Praise the Lord!

Pray that more and more people would be brought to the saving knowledge of the Lord. Pray that the Lord would give gift to our graduates to share the gospel boldly. Pray for our health and our financial needs. Since some of our supports have stopped their support we are in financial need.

We appreciate your support and prayers. Please continue to uphold us through your prayers and financial supports.

Thank you so much!

Co-workers in Christ,

Pastor P.M. and V.M.
