From My Heart
Winter Quarterly Newsletter 2018
As I reflect on the year 2017, there’s one word that comes to mind: gratitude. I’m very grateful to God for his faithfulness. He has lead us this far, provided for us and protected us. And I am very grateful to YOU – it’s a result of your partnership with us that God has accomplished some amazing things last year that you will read about in this newsletter.
However, in spite of all the wonderful blessings the Lord brought to our door, we also faced many challenges. Tragically, we lost two of our very own pastors. One was shot dead by some militants and another one was beaten to death. And yet another pastor has been in prison in Jharkhand for more than two months. These are just a few examples of the increasing militancy against Christians and churches. New legislation is also in the works that would restrict Christian ministries across India. But in the midst of all these challenges, the church is growing.
My belief and conviction are that the kingdom is unshakable, nothing can stop it. Amidst all of these obstacles and persecution, the church in India resembles the first century Church, growing exponentially.
Today, I want to thank you for standing with us. Thank you for your prayer. Thank you for your financial support. Thank you for your generosity and the sacrifices you have made to move the kingdom forward.
