“Reaching the unreached is my burden and God has called me to reach the Lambadas, Hindus, Naidus, Gollas, and Reddys. Many of them have never heard the name of our Lord Jesus.

“Two years ago, three families of ten members left the church. As a servant of God, I had rebuked them for following Hindu rituals even though they were baptized. They went to different churches during these 2 years but had no peace and many problems arose in their families. Believers kept praying for them and some had a vision that the families came back and were decorating the church for Christmas. God also revealed to me that they were going through some challenges. I wanted to visit them but hesitated, thinking I may not be welcomed. Amazingly, a week after, they called to request that I come to pray for them as they were having some problems. I went with my wife to counsel and pray with them. Thank God, two families came back to church immediately and the third family six months later.”

Sun 25. Santosh – India
“Manish was born and brought up in a strict Hindu family. He worked for the Naxalites (the Maxist-Leninist political militant group). He hardly came home nor catered for his family. Because of his association with this group, he behaved so rashly. Ministering to him was a great challenge. He often threatened to shoot me. But when he was shot and heavily wounded, the Lord opened the door to tell him about the love of Christ. God’s Spirit touched and wonderfully changed his heart. He is now coming to church. Praise the Lord.”
