Praise the Lord – Pastor 16 update June 2023

Praise the Lord!

Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you, dear partners, for your prayers and financial support. We are praying for your family and your country. By the grace of God, my family and I are doing well. God has kept us safe.

Last month we got a chance to visit a different state with family. We had a good time meeting with cousins. We were able to have fellowship with them and share the Word with them. 

We also got the chance to visit a blind hostel run by Swedish Missionaries. There are about 200 students there. Some live there as resident students. Others, who are from nearby villages, go back to their homes after school. It was our privilege to spend time with them and pray for them. The manager shared a testimony about God’s provision for the blind school. During Covid, they did not have any funds for the school, but the staff stayed without getting a salary and the local people raised some money to feed the students. Now, a Swedish mission has been helping financially for last two years to run the school. Praise God for such committed Christian workers who Christian worked without receiving a salary.  

Since the Bible Institute is closed for summer brake, we are focusing on church ministry. We do home visitation in the evenings since during the day it is very hot.

In the morning we are cataloging the books of our Bible Institute library.  The new Bible Institute session will start the first week of July.

Since schools are out for summer break, we had a VBS that was attended by around 400 children! 

Prayer Requests:

  • Please pray for my children to grow in the Lord’s fear and knowledge.
  • Please pray that the Lord will intervene in the problems the world is facing.
  • Please pray for the village ministry in our local area. May the villagers grow in Lord’s Word.
  • Please pray M* (the niece of one of our students). She is suffering from Chickenpox.
  • Please pray for our state believers, as they are facing persecution.
