|Praise the Lord!
Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you, dear supporters and prayer partners, for your prayers and financial support. We are praying for your family and for your country. By the grace of God my family and I are doing well. God has kept us safe.
We thank the Lord that we have been able to start having church services. Because of the lock-down and Covid, we were unable to open our church for a long time. But, God is faithful–during that time, He helped us and kept us safe. In December, we started opening our church for in-person services again. People started coming and attending the services. Please pray for them to grow in God’s Word.
Last month, a brother from a Calvary Chapel got married. We had the opportunity to be part of the wedding ceremony. The Lord helped us to conduct the ceremony. The bride and groom are both Christians. Please pray that the new family will grow in their faith.
We had a good Christmas season. We celebrated Christmas with local believers and family. It was a nice time to get together after being apart for so long.
Last month, believers that we are discipling went through persecution. They were called to a village meeting in their home village. There, the leaders offended them by swearing at them and tried to force them to reject Christ. By God’s grace, the believers got a chance to explain their faith while all the village people were gathered together for the meeting. Afterward, the believers were told that they will not be aloud to have jobs and the strong opposition/penalties they will get. But, they still stood strong in their faith. Please pray for them.
- Please pray that our children will grow in the fear and knowledge of the Lord.
- Please pray that the Lord would intervene in the problem the world is facing.
- Please pray for the local village ministry- that the people will grow in the Lord’s Word.
