“Fear Not, For I Am With You” – Pastor 3 Update March 2024

Greetings to you all in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

(Isaiah 41:10).

God has promised that He will strengthen us to move forward for His kingdom. As a family, we are so grateful to the Lord for His protection and provision. Thank you, to all our ministry partners for your earnest prayers and financial support. We have been constantly praying for you and your family. May God bless you!

As you all are aware, day by day Christians are being attacked by Hindu fanatic groups in most parts of our country, especially in the state where I serve. In many places, they are not allowing believers to bury their dead loved ones’ bodies in the villages. The government is trying to pass a law to shutdown all house churches! Because of that, local police are coming and stopping the church services. They are even beating the pastors and believers. In addition Christian believers are completely helpless from the government. If the Christians complain about the persecution, then charges will be filed against Christian’s who are being persecuted, not the Hindu fanatics that attacked them. Therefore it is getting harder to go to the villages and share the Gospel. However, God is opening the door for us to personally evangelize in homes. In addition to doing church ministry, as a family we visit other families to testify about the Lord and pray for them!

Last month we finished our 3rd semester examination at CBI (above). The 4th semester has already begun.

As part of practical training, we have been taking our students to visit homes (above) where they pray for people. They are also involved in church activities, such as Sunday school, youth group, choir, etc.

Prayer Requests:

  • Kindly pray that God may open the eyes of Hindu fanatic groups to see God’s love and come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
  • Please pray that God may stop such great persecutions.
  • Kindly pray for the growth of our church.
  • Pray for suitable land for our church.
  • Kindly pray for me and my family, that the Lord use us for the expansion of His kingdom.
  • Please also pray for my daughter’s study.

Thank you very much for your prayers and support!!

In Him,

Pastor 3* and Family
