Our Hope Is in the Lord – Pastor Rabi Update September 2023

“Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy Word.”

Psalms 119:114

Thanks to be God, He has brought wonderful students to our Calvary Bible Institute! This semester, God brought talented students to our CBI. When I see them, I rejoice in Christ because they are eager to learn the Word of God. Some of them are skilled in the field of music; they know how to play the guitar and how to write and sing songs. Some are skilled in playing sports as well. Many of them have a heart to serve the Lord, even though they do not know what will happen in the future. If we can train them well, I think we will be able to do a lot of work for the Lord in our country. When I see the students, I can tell that they are understanding everything I teach them. Their hearts want to know “Who is the Real Jesus?” One class of our dear students is going to graduate soon; pray that God will mightily use them and bring positive changes into the churches of our country.

This semester, I am teaching the Gospel of Mark and the Book of Acts. Our dear students are eager to learn about how to preach the Gospel to unreached people.

In our church, we already finished the book of Colossians. Now we are beginning the book of 1 Thessalonians. Our believers are learning and growing day by day.

My beautiful wife, Mahima’s sister’s daughter is also studying in our CBI. It was through this daughter that my wife and her whole family came to Christ. She came to CBI to study, and now she has also publicly showed that she is following Jesus. Now, she is a first semester student in our school. Before coming to CBI, she was planning to go to Japan. We talked with her and asked her to join CBI, and now she has joined us.

Our dear brother Harka already graduated from our Calvary Bible Institute. He is in the ministry now and is serving the Lord. He has had a difficult time, but he has been able to feed his family by working with making small furniture. He left his home area to do ministry in a new area. When Harka came to CBI, he knew the importance of study. After he graduated he joined a college in his area. He did a great job there and got good grades. Now, he also would like to get a bachelor’s degree someday, but is looking after his family and two small children. Pray for God’s will to be done in this. Harka is doing Gospel outreaches every month and visiting new areas.

My beautiful wife is also doing online Bible Study. She is now teaching the book of Revelation. She finished the book of Genesis and the book of Daniel. Pray that God will give us a baby. We have been married for 5 years. Pray that God will help us to do treatment, or that He will provide a nice job for my wife so that she can be busy during the day. May God provide for us and help us to have a baby who would also grow up to do God’s ministry.

We are ding Bible study in the leprosy colony. By the grace of God, everyone is growing in the Lord day by day. By His grace, we are doing this and feeding them with the Word.

Thank you so much for supporting us, praying for us and raising us up! God bless every entire family at Saving Grace World Missions!

Grace and peace,

Your faithful servants,

Rabi and Mahima
