Hearing the Truth for the First Time

Hello. Jai Masih ki! (Praise the Lord!)

I hope you are all doing well. Thank you for praying for me and for my ministry hear in the North. Thank you also for helping me through financial support. God bless you all.

I hope you all had a great Christmas. We also celebrated Christmas out hear in the village. We invited people from all around and had a gathering in our new church building. We invited many people, but a lot of people did not come because now they are scared.

Our state government made a law that no one can accept a different religion because they want to make our state a Hindu state. They fought a very long time to make this law and now they won. Now the government is making big posters about it. The Hindu people started rallying in the roads. They are saying that that Christians are bringing Christianity in, so the Hindus are all trying to stop the Gospel from soaring in our state.

Because of this, a many Christian brothers who we invited to our Christmas celebration did not come. Please continue to pray for my ministry here in the Northern mountain villages and pray that the believers may be strong in their faith. We had a great time with the young adults and children. They were so happy and did a dance. We gave them a gift. Thank you so much for the funds for the Christmas outreach. God bless you all

We invited some new young adults to the Christmas program. When I was sharing the Gospel they liked to hear it so much that they said “We are hearing the truth for the first time in our life. Thank you so much for telling us about Jesus.”

Then I told them, “If you want, repent from your sins right now. God will forgive you and He will give you new life.”

They were so happy and said “We really want except Jesus in our lives.”

Those brothers gave their lives to Jesus Christ. Please continue pray for these brothers. One of their names is Anand* and the other is Sunil*. Please continue to pray for these young people. God bless you all.

I want thank you all who are praying for me and my ministry in the North. God bless you.

Prayer Requests:

  • Please continue to pray. We are living in the mountains. Now, in our state they are not allowing the Gospel. Please pray that God will open a door so that this anti-conversion law will soon be gone and that we will be able to share the Gospel in freedom.
  • We started some home fellowships. Pray for these families. They are new in Christ, so please pray they will stay with their faith.
  • Continue pray for those who are serving in the ministry here. A few days ago, a pastor got in trouble for working in one of the villages. He started a fellowship there and then the village people got angry. They tried to find out what mission the pastor is with. I also got a call from the police because they are finding out again where these things are happening. They want stop fellowships and churches. But we know that God is great. He can do anything. Pray that God will open their eyes so that they can see the truth.
  • Please continue to pray for our ministry here and for the believers to stay strong in their faith
  • Pray for our new building construction to be able to be finished soon. May God provide the funds for finishing the building work so that we can gather there for prayer for many activities.
  • Pray for our safety when we share the Gospel. May God give us knowledge and wisdom so that many people can come in Christ.
  • Continue to pray for village people who are priests. May God open their eyes so that they can come out from the darkness and see the light of the Gospel that can save their lives from sin.

Thank you so much everyone who is praying for us. Thank you so much for your love in Christ. God bless you all. Thank you so much once again that you guys are helping us through ministry support and for your love.

Thank you so very much. God bless you all. Continue to pray for us.
