This is a picture of Brother Ruben. He, along with 2 women, were baptized by trine immersion on Sunday, March 5th. The ladies were Poongodi and Thangamani. Ruben is one of the 3 leaders helping to plant a church in the mountain area of Sathyamangalam with Brothers Stephen and Velusamy.
Those who were baptized also participated in 3-fold communion that day with the other believers at Agape Home in Coimbatore. Afterwards, the church planters had a meeting during which they discussed:
- The printing of new tracts in Tamil and their distribution. They also discussed distributing other Gospel booklets and some small books.
- To divide the Conference of 2017 into one in Tamil Nadu and the other at Vishakapatnum for the believers in Odisha.
- For the church planters of Tamil Nadu to meet once a quarter for fellowship and to rotate the location.
- We will work on repairing buildings in Sathyamangalam and Pongalur for ministry and a place to worship.
Please pray for us in Coimbatore to find a suitable location to build a church building soon. The government will not allow a church to meet at Agape Home and neither will they allow anyone to stay there or for us to hold our Conferences there anymore.
Brother Paul was awarded a Ph.D. on March 3rd by Anna University in Chennai for Electrical Engineering. Rejoice with him in this milestone in his life. Lord willing, he will join us for Conference and to see the Ark this summer.
