VBS in Tamil Nadu
May is the end of the school year in Tamil Nadu. At both Agape Home and Torbay House, Vacation Bible School (VBS) was held for the children.
Brother Paul reports: The children were divided into three groups according to their ages. Each group had bible lessons, sang songs and did handicraft works. The children also participated in bible quizzing, skits etc. Thank all the donors and sponsors for the children’s ministry as it yields a great impact on the lives of the children and please continue to pray for them.
This is a blessing for the believers and the children in these locations as the government under Prime Minister Modi continues to allow great pressure on Christian ministries and persecution of Christians. More recent stringent regulations regarding orphanages have shut down many. In God’s gracious, providential working, both Agape Home and Torbay House have passed the government inspections and continue to operate.
It is exciting to report to you that the Southern Chin Brethren Fellowship of churches in Myanmar have voted to join hands with the CGBCI for the purpose of church planting among tribal groups in Myanmar. Praise the Lord!
As I mentioned in last month’s update, pray for Naing Bu and his wife, Pam, as they plan to be at Conference and share with us this exciting news and give more details. You will have the opportunity to speak to them in person.
As always, we are very grateful for your prayers and financial gifts to the ministry in India. We pray that you may realize what Jesus said in Luke 16:9.
