The newest outreach point in Tamil Nadu is the village of Kandiyaperri. With great appreciation to a couple who donated the funds to build a meeting house/church building in this village, the ministry has continued to expand. The building is still in need of electrical wiring and a good water supply for drinking water. Gilbert, Dr. Gilbert, Paul’s son, gave his first paycheck as a doctor to help fund what is needed to complete this building effort! Special thanks also to Esther Moeller who supplied a DVD player for the ministry in Kandiyaperri.
Brother David Selvaraj has been overseeing this ministry, but he needs help. Pray that the Lord will raise up another church planting partner to work with Brother David in this endeavor. It is very encouraging to know that Hindus are being reached through this ministry. One Hindu man is now sending both his sons to Torbay house for education. When they are home, they attend the services in this meeting house in Kandiyaperri. Pray that the entire family, each one of them, will come to know Christ.
OTHER PRAYER REQUESTS:
- Please continue to pray for Brother Paul as he is still in the midst of the difficulties at the College where he is head of the engineering department.
- Also, even though this request is not for India, pray for Pastor Bryan Maley, Pastor Ike Graham and Josh Miller as they are being sent to Myanmar in January to teach a group of Plymouth Brethren pastors who want to know more about the CGBCI. For more information about this, please contact Pastor Bryan Maley.
