Update on the Ministry in India : June 2014

As you may know from previous correspondence, there is a plan to begin backing off CGBCI financial support beginning in 2017. This means that over the next 2 years, we will be seeking to receive funds for this financial self-support project.  For example, in Semala, Odisha, Brother Nehemiah and the church planting team estimates that they can begin moving toward financial self-support status with the purchase of 6 cows and an acre of land.  They are still working on a dollar figure and we plan to have a concrete plan from them when we are with them in May of 2015. In the meantime, please pray for this need and mark any gifts for this project “Self-support fund.”


Please send financial support to:

CGBCI Foreign Missions
P.O. Box 217
Grimes, IA  50111

The men in Odisha had Practorium together the second week of May.  In order to avoid harassment and overt persecution, they met in a Christian facility south of the state of Odisha in the state of Andra Pradesh. Brother Peter, taught the epistle to the Romans; Brother Paul taught the letter of 1 Corinthians, and Brother Nehemiah taught the letter of 2 Corinthians.
