Ruxi Vandici has had some major health problems over the past few years.  But inspite of the physical and emotional drag, she presses on to engage students with the gospel.  The following is twofold. First, Ruxi gives an update on her health, and secondly, she shares her ministry endeavors:

“I have just started a very aggressive treatment. Please pray that I will be able to bear and endure it, as the doctor expects me to feel very, very sick.  Please pray that the doctor would have wisdom in the treatment she prescribes.”


The highlight of this past month was the opportunity to befriend and witness more to my new neighbor. One Saturday I invited her over for dinner and afterward we took a walk in the park. We got to know each other better and had a good time together. I had also invited her to come to church with me, and to my joy she accepted! She came the next day on Sunday morning and then attended our small Bible study group. In the small group we discussed the gospel and two people shared their testimonies. I was so glad that the Lord gave us this wonderful opportunity! Then she came to visit me one afternoon and met one of our girls, who invited her to the student evangelistic retreat in July. I am amazed at seeing how many opportunities the Lord has given me in the past few weeks, not only to witness to her, but also to introduce her to other believers who befriended her also. Please pray that the Lord would work in her heart and cause her to seek Him. I gave her a New Testament and several Christian books. Please pray that she would read them, believe on Christ and be saved.

We continued our outreaches in the dorms and are grateful for each opportunity to share the gospel. This last time I had a very long discussion with a guy, and even though he had all kinds of ideas, he listened to the gospel. Even when we got ready to leave, he still wanted to talk and came even to the subway. I am always amazed when I see this, young people who would stay with us for a long time to listen to the gospel! Indeed, the fields are ready but the laborers are so few. Please pray that all these seeds planted will bear forth fruit for the glory of God and the salvation of many souls!

I had the great joy of seeing a woman baptized that I have been studying the Bible with over the last two and a half years. I am so encouraged seeing her determination to follow Christ in spite of the problems she has with her non-Christian husband. Over time, I have seen how God kept strengthening her steps on His path. May the Lord make her a light for her lost husband and give her wisdom in raising her children!

I was also encouraged meeting with two young women who were converted years ago from the world. They had married guys from the church, and in both cases, their husbands who they married led them to the Lord.  Years after now, the women are still walking with the Lord in spite of great troubles with their husbands who are not walking with the Lord anymore. May God give them much grace!
