“Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have ransomed me, O Lord, God of truth.” Psalm 31:5

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Greetings in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ! Praise the Lord for His provision and grace in my trip Germany and Romania. For nearly two weeks, I got the privilege and opportunity to visit a few churches both in Germany and Romania. In this visit I was able fellowship and renew my friendship with Pastor Nathanael Armisen, Pastor Peter Schild, and Pastor Tobias. It was a blessed time. 

After that, I was off to Romania. I praise the Lord as He opened the door, and granted me my desire to preach the gospel in Romania. I preached in two churches, shared my testimony in one, and talked about the ministry in India in three. It was a great feeling to see and experience the common bond we have in Christ Jesus, even though culturally and ethnically speaking, we are miles apart! I thank the Lord for the immense privilege he gave me to bear the Name of Jesus and also proclaim the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ. I particularly enjoyed the warmth and affection of the brethren. This is only possible through the work of the Holy Spirit! 

News from Reformed Baptist Church

This November will mark the 2nd year we have been in our church building. We are planning to have our normal pastor’s conference and gospel meetings once again this year. Pastor Mark C. is going to come and preach for us. Please pray for his safety during his time in India, as he ministers to us and also a church in Hyderabad. Also, please pray for the evangelistic events we are hoping to conduct. We truly want to reach out to our community and invite them to the meetings. Please pray that people may respond positively and attend the meetings. Pray for the preachers too.  

Please pray for a young man whom the church is considering to appoint him as an elder. Please continue to pray for a couple of young men who seem to have stabilized in the faith. They have been consistent to the church meetings, and has also been serving the church as they can. One of these young men in particular has felt great remorse about what he has done against the Lord. 

Please continue to pray for two ladies who have been touched by the gospel message. Both these women have been abandoned by their husbands and are currently living in the slums. We met these two ladies during our Saturday evangelism. Please pray that the Lord would grant us grace and wisdom to minister to them. Many in our church are from poorer sections of the society. Therefore, there is a great demand for the mercy ministries. We as a church desire to help three individuals on monthly basis, to help them buy some medicine and basic necessities. In the future, we are hoping to help more. Please pray that the Lord may grant us wisdom in this area, and that we may be compassionate towards the poor and needy. Thank you once again for all your prayers. We would count it as a privilege.

In His Grace,

Samuel B.
