  • A water well was drilled in Basini and they are praying for a harvest of souls there.
  • Eli Benya, who told his family that he would only return if they became believers, joyfully witnessed the baptism of his mother!
  • They are distributing tracts at the banks, hospitals, municipalities, offices and in the marketplaces.  Pray for fruit from this ministry.
  • Pray for the Lord’s protection as they are being opposed by Hindu radical groups and “Christians” who don’t want them to “rock the boat.”
  • Pray for a church building to meet in.
