INDIA’s 7 YEAR VISION STATEMENT
This is a community school for secondary technical training. It will be used not only to teach students a trade, but also for Gospel outreach to those who attend and as the meeting place on Sundays for outreach to the village one mile away where the Gospel has not yet been preached. Praise God for the vision of our Brethren to expand the ministry in India. In addition, the church planters in Odisha met and the men in Tamil Nadu to establish their goals for the next 7 years. They did this because we are doing this in the U.S. I started to share those goals with you last month, here is the second installment on their goals for the next 7 years.
If all the goals of the church planters in Tamil Nadu and Odisha were to be met, it would result in…
- 182 new churches
- Training of 400 pastors.
- 2,056 new believers
- A hospital ministry
- Distribution of 150,000 tracts and gospel booklets.
- Churches and believers in 100 villages
- Churches and believers in 2 new states.
They have determined that they will establish these goals by…
1…Fasting and prayer .
3…Showing Gospel films
4…Evening outreach to children by tutoring classes
7…Social work (water wells; food distribution; etc.)
8…hospital ministry beginning in 2016
9…Corporate Prayer by the saints
13..youth programs (Teaching Dance, music, computer and Gospel).
14..Helping poor, widow and orphans (James 1:27).
Special thanks to those of you who responded to the need for Bibles in Odisha. Those funds have been sent along with funds received for mats so that the believers have something to sit on.
Thank you for your faithful prayers and support of the church planting ministry in India.
