Update on the Ministry in India : January 2016

Updates and prayer requests:

Recently, Brother Paul sent the followiLokhantha Tandi IMG_2588ng updates and prayer
requests: Please pray for brother Lognath Tandi (in picture below) in Golamunda. He is seriously affected by a stroke recently and was admitted to a hospital. He is struggling physically. Prayers are needed much for him. Also pray for brother David Hanu in Umarkote. His infant daughter is not well.


Brother Paul also mentioned that he is praying for our Bible teaching trip to Myanmar. We are scheduled to leave this Saturday, January 16, 2016. By way of reminder, we were invited by a Plymouth Brethren pastor who was studying here in the U.S. to come and teach their Fellowship elders Grace Brethren distinctives. We will be in Myanmar preaching and teaching January 19-30, 2016. If you have not received a prayer card, like the one below, you may request it from Joy Steiner at You can also call her at 330-683-3526.


Please pray for us. Here are some of our requests:

  • For safe travel and good health there and back.
  • For the men who hear the truth to be drawn to a conviction about Grace Brethren distinctives because they are biblical and not for other reasons.
  • For the interpreter(s) to understand well and convey accurately the biblical truths that we will be teaching.
  • For every listener to understand the truth well and not read into what is being taught.
  • For an agreement to partner together in order to plant churches in Myanmar; especially among tribal groups which have no Gospel witness.


In last month’s India ministry update, you were informed of a financial goal deficit that we were facing for this quarter. Praise the Lord that many of you responded and, except for the orphan ministry, all financial goals were met for this quarter. Thank you so much!

Myanmar Trip – Prayer Requests

Pastor Ike, Josh Miller and Pastor Bryan Maley have their visas and are preparing to leave for Myanmar on January 16th. Please pray…

  • For good health and stamina there and back
  • For smooth transitions from one place to another
  • For clarity in communicating the word of God through the interpreter
  • For good understanding on the part of the listeners
  • For a desire on the part of the national brethren to join us because the word of God is their motivation; not because we are Americans or have more money than they do (as they think).

For a good strategy, then, to reach unreached areas and plant solid, biblical churches.
