As we have completed 18 years in the North Indian mission fields we want to thank God for His care and we want to thank you for your prayer and partnership.
During the last one year we went through severe opposition from the so called fundamental forces. It's continuing. But God helped us not to slow down but to move forward with the plans we have prepared with prayer. We faced some heavy storms but God kept us safe. Preeti was away for four years because of professional assignment but God miraculously brought her back. We had to send our daughter Debu to Chennai but God is good.
In spite of persecution becoming severe God helped us to see so many souls. In the last few weeks alone I have asked around 3000 new believers and workers of our fields how many of them were having any Christian connection before 10 years and not more than 30 hands were raised! The Church is growing.
I can never thank God enough for sending us to such a place as Bihar. This is a treasure house. Such great opportunity to win souls.
Please continue to pray for us. God put in my heart to pray for winning 10 million souls by 2020. Please pray for 2019 election in India. Please pray for me as I travel in Bihar and central India constantly through mission fields. Please pray for our family and our mission family. Please pray that we will remain faithful till the end. Once again we thank God and thank you. Please remember that there are more than 50,000 unreached villages in central India where Christ is never preached. We have to reach them. This is the most urgent work to be done now. Can you be a part of it more than before? Can we together take the message of cross to these perishing people?
May God bless you.
