Prayer Request

We received this prayer request from Brother Nehemiah this past Wednesday.

Greetings in Jesus name,

Please pray for my wife she is seriously ill, suffering from typhoid malaria, eosinophil and thyroid problem. She is receiving medical treatments. May the Lord heal her completley.

Yours in Christ.


Please be praying for Nehemiah’s wife and their whole family.

The church planters from Odisha met for a time of Bible teaching and fellowship this past week.  Here are some picture from their time.

Update on the Ministry in India : May 2014



This is another picture of the Bible distribution in Golamunda.  Team co-leader, Peter Sipka, is the man in the front middle (not holding a Bible).  I do not yet have a report on how many Bibles have been distributed, but once again, we want to thank those who made contributions to purchase Bibles for distribution. Pray that the word of God will have full effect in the hearts of every recipient.  Pray that many more will be saved and added to the churches. Pray also for Brother Peter as he is asking the Lord to provide a wife for Him of God’s choosing.


As a result of the outreach in the village of GADVAKATRA, Brother Sangram met the couple in the picture above.  Soon afterwards, the wife began attending Sunday services.  On Brother Sangram’s return visit, the husband invited him in to their house and asked Brother Sangram to pray for him. Pray that both of them will be saved and added to the church.


A year from this month, we are planning our next trip to India in order to meet with the Brethren there, see how they are doing, encourage them and minister to them primarily through the ministry of the word.  We are praying for wisdom as the church planters have many requests regarding topics to study for a better understanding of the Scriptures. Please pray with us.
