The children at Agape Home and Torbay House made Christmas cards for the people that sponsored their Christmas gifts.  Here are scans of some of the cards and the actual cards are in the mail on the way to the Konnect with the Kid sponsors.

Update on the Ministry in India : November 2014

UPCOMING TRIP TO INDIA

Last month, I mentioned that our next scheduled trip to India is April 30, 2015. Our team is set now for this trip: Pastor Ike Graham; Joshua Steiner; Grace Steiner and Joy Miller. Pray for us and pray that all objectives will be accomplished. A new written plan will be formulated when we are with the church planters to include a financial self-support plan beginning in 2017. This will mean greater needed funds in 2015 and 2016 to meet these goals. Please pray!

TAMIL NADU UPDATE

Brother Paul sends this update regarding Tamil Nadu:

By the grace of our Lord, the Sunday service and communion are followed regularly. As an outreach during the month of September, we visited a town called PALLADAM. We met a few Independent Pastors working in villages and urban areas. Two Pastors are interested in joining with us after we explained our statement of faith (CGBCI). We prayed with them and returned. God willing, we will have a fellowship of Pastors meeting on 4th November at Agape Home.  Please pray for the fellowship as we will meet and plan the work and the conference for May 2015. Brother Moses is leading a prayer group near his residence every Sunday evening.

The children in Agape Home are currently being led and taught by VIJAYAKUMAR. He is the young man who was baptized in 2013 and is assisting in the ministry in the very place where he was nurtured. He teaches bible stories, songs etc. We request your prayers for the kids of Agape home and Torbay house. Thanks to KONNECT WITH A KID as their help will be used for the kids to get new dresses and gifts for Christmas. We praise GOD for the rain the Lord sent! Pray for protection of the children at Agape Home from the elephants in the forest. Sometimes these elephants break through our fence.

God willing, we are planning to visit the forest area near SATHYAMANGALAM to reach the tribes living there in November 2014. Please pray for my son, Gilbert, as he completes his medical internship in May 2015. Also, pray for my son, Meshach, and thank God for him as he received passing grades in his first year of Medical school. God willing, Meshach will be baptized soon. Pray for me as I undergo therapy for my left hand because of my diabetes. Pray too for all the church planters and their families.
