Mon 21. Angela – India
God has opened doors to reach people as I share the word of God with them. He taught me to persevere in prayers especially when interacting with people with burdened hearts.

My passion and vision is to reach the Lambada tribe with the gospel message. People in many of these villages have never heard the name of the Lord Jesus Christ declared. I have been praying for opportunities to share the gospel with some families. Thank God for an opportunity to minister to Banavathu, a Hindu for whose salvation we have been praying. God answered our prayer and he recently prayed to receive the Lord. Pray that he may be firmly rooted in his new-found faith.

Please pray that they too may soon come to experience Christ’s saving power and bring joy to Sarahbee and to us all.

To God alone be the glory.
Mon 28. Devadanam - India
Mahadevapuram, a city where God has sent us to minister, is a large area with about 5,000 houses altogether. We are often molested by Hindu fundamentalists, yet the people now call me ‘The Gospel Preacher.’ The Lord blessed our ministry in the past quarter with baptisms of 5 people. Two others will soon be baptized having completed baptismal class. We currently have two house churches and two cell groups. Pray that God may continue to protect and enrich these fellowships.
Tue 29. EIM - India
Laws against conversions in 8 States, not only rob tribals and Dalits of their rights to freedom of faith, some of them also have punitive measures against pastors. Most dangerously, the anti-conversion laws seem to provide a license to non-state actors, some other ideologically-aligned groups, and the police and local government officials, to target Christians. Despite heavy persecution, God continues to bring the people to trust Him for salvation as 9 people recently did. They declared their faith publicly through baptism despite the possible cost. Praise the Lord.
Wed 30. Mariadas – India
Himambi was paralyzed and undergoing much suffering. I have shared the gospel message with her on many occasions. I prayed for her and by God’s grace she was healed and made whole. She is one of the six people who came to faith in Christ during the quarter. Thank God because through this miraculous intervention in Hamambi’s life, He has opened the door of ministry to more people in the village.
Thu 31. Dibyajoli – India
We have focused our ministry on Ghobur village.
