Praise the Lord for a new family in Bagamunda where Brother Lalendra is serving. In Gangiapada, two new men are attending the church. They are preparing to baptize the new believers there. In Chacarbhata, Brother Sagar reports that two people were added to the church and three new persons are coming. In Chaparia, Brother Bag reports that Hindu people are threatening the church and the believers. Every week, youth and children meetings are conducted apart from Sunday Service. Please pray for the other Hindu people, for the health of my wife and children, for the financial needs. In Magaraguda, Brother Pradeep reports that three women and two men are additionally attending the service and three people are ready for baptism. Other “Christian” groups are opposing the planting of CGBCI churches.
In Semala, Brother Nehemiah is the team leader. He sends the following prayer requests: Our team was able to distribute 1500 gospel tracts and 500 other gospel books through our outreach and other ministries. About 100 people responded to the gospel about 20 people are being prepared for baptism. Please pray for Gupteswar and his wife they don’t have any children. Please pray for Brother Surendeep Pradan’s wife who had surgery. Please pray for Brothers Surendra, Ramesh, Barja, Sangram and Surendeep; their families and ministries that the lord may use them mightily for his glory. Please pray for Chaudhary Chatria that the Lord will save him. He is always standing against the Lord’s people. Please pray for the people who have received the gospel they may accept the Lord.
Brother Joseph Surya is the team leader in Umarkote. He sends the following prayer requests: Each of the men on our team have been carrying out extensive outreach into the areas and villages where they live. Please pray for David Hanu who is planning to be married soon. Pray for Brother Nag who needs more tracts and Bibles. We all believe that it would be advantageous to have a church building rather than just meet in our homes. Pray that the Lord will supply buildings for us to meet in if that is His will. Pray also that the many tracts and Gospel books that have been distributed will take root and sprout in the good soil of the hearts of those who have received them.
Please also pray that we might reach our financial goal for the support of the church planters. As of today, we are $4,000 behind for our 3rd quarter goal. Please send financial support to:
