This is a picture of Brother Joseph Suriya. He is the team leader ofthe church planting team in Umerkote, Odisha. He asks us to pray for the upcoming marriage ofteam mate Manoranjan. He also asks prayer for the believers as harassment and threats by Hindus would not stop God’s people from carrying out the Lord’s will for them.
In Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, Brother PK Moses requests prayer for the prayer cell being held on the college campus. Some faculty and many students have been attending. Pray for him as he ministers especially to students trapped in drug us and alcoholism. He also has a Bible study which is being attended by 15-20 people. They are working their way through the Gospels and are about to finish the Gospel of Matthew. They are praying that a church can be born from this Bible study.
Brother Munisamy in Pondicherry asks us to pray for their continued efforts in evangelism among the people of JJ Nagar. So far, it has yielded little fruit, but they continue to witness there. He also asks that God raise up leadership for the church as he grows older.
Brother Samuel Mani in Coimbatore requests prayer for the expansion of their ministry in the suburb of Palladum. He is one of the newest team members working with Alfred on the eastern side of Coimbatore (a city of one million people). In the following picture, you can see him receiving a gift from Brother Paul after he was trine immersed. He also asks us to pray for their Bible study outreach and evangelism efforts in nearby towns.
Because of volatility in his position at the College now, Brother Paul will not make it to Conference. He prayerfully plans to join us in 2018 for Conference when we are scheduled to go back to Kentucky and see the further development of the Ark Encounter.
