Pastors School Students
Thank you so much for your prayers and financial support! First of all,
we want to apologize for not being able to send the update earlier.
But we are sure that you did not stop praying for us and the ministry
in South Asia.
By the grace of our Lord Jesus, we were able to complete the first year of Pastors Training School here in South Asia. We enjoyed learning the Word of God through the Pastors from the States via Skype. When we started the school we had five students. In the middle of the year one man left the school due to illness. Please pray that these students will be used by the Lord to win souls.
Pastors School Classes
This year we are hoping to have 10 to 15 students. Praise the Lord! God has opened the heart of a Christian family to allow us to use their house to board the students. This house was vacant for some time and V.M. was praying that we could use it, so that we could also take some girls into the Pastors School. We don’t have to pay any rent for this house. We need your prayers and support for the Pastors School.
There are many teenage Christian boys and girls in the town. The Lord has given us the opportunity to hold a Bible study for these young men and women on Saturdays. We need your prayers for these youth. Please pray that more and more youth may join the group.
When we were here in our home town, before moving North, we had started “City Prayer Fellowship” to pray for the leaders of the town and for the leaders of the country. When we moved to the North, in 2005, it stopped. Since we are back we are praying and thinking of restarting that prayer group. Please pray that we would be able to do so.
This state in South Asia where I live is very hostile to Christians. It is one of the most persecuted regions of the country. We need much prayer that the Lord would prepare the hearts of the people for the Gospel, and that He would raise up the Christians and give them boldness to reach out to them with the Gospel. We believe that the
Lord is going to do His work. The tough land is the most fertile land for the Gospel, I believe. We beg your prayers, too.
V.M. in the Hospital
We are praying that the Lord open the door for us to start Sunday Service. We need a place. People are not willing to rent out their homes for Christian Services, but we are hopeful that the Lord would provide for us. We continue to pray that God would provide a way for us to purchase land for the Bible School and to have church. I have seen land in a few places.
Translating for American Pastors Teaching on Skype
I need a co-worker who would help me in our Pastors Training School. I can not leave, even if I have an emergency, because I don’t have anyone to translate [for Skype classes]. Last month, V.M. was sick and I needed to take her to the doctor, but I left her sick at home and went to the Pastors Training School for the morning class. After the class, I came back home and took her to the doctor. She was immediately admitted into the hospital. Please pray for a co-worker.
Thank you for your prayers for our health. I am doing good and V.M.
is getting better.
