Greeting to you in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We wish you Happy Christmas and Happy New Year of 2018. Though we are far in distance, we are in one, because of God's grace.
In the grace of God the weekly church services and cottage meetings are going well. I have finished the book of James, and I am now preaching through the book of Acts. From this book I am teaching the believers to be witnesses wherever we go. I am also teaching from the book, "The One True God" the second and last Saturday after the church services.
In this year we celebrated Christmas joyfully. In this Christmas season our church family went door-to-door, and village-to-village to evangelize the people with the gospel. It was wonderful. God truly helped our team. Some people were listening to the message, but some were rejecting His words. We don't know whom God's has elected, but our responsibility is to peach the Gospel that He has commanded us to preach. While declaring the truth, one older woman replied, "Every road is the same. We will go to the same place from different roads.” I told her that the way to go heaven is not like the ways of this world. Only Christ is the way. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). Another man was rejecting God's Word and told us to stop evangelizing. He told us to change religions because Christianity is a Western religion. He was orthodox Hindu. We told him that we are not telling about religion, but about the truth. The truth is men are sinners and God's wrath is upon man. We told him that Christ is the only escape from His wrath. Thanks God for giving us patient and humble heart while preaching His Word to those people who are in darkness. May God call them into His kingdom according to His time.
Once again thanks to God for His grace and guiding in His ministry, and providing all the needs. Thank you all for your prayers. We are praying for you all.
Prayer Requests: Please pray for those people who heard the gospel. Please pray for the church youth. We are praying for upcoming RBS training. Please pray for us that we may grow in God's knowledge and shepherd His flock biblically.
