Greetings to you all! I just wanted to send a brief update on pastor’s training classes that were held last week.
In partnership with HeartCry, we had these training classes at Pastor C’s church. There are many small-scale industries around him which employee thousands of people. He ministers among those who work in the daily-wage factories. Truly, the harvest is plentiful, and the laborers are few in this area. His fellowship (consisting of 30-40 people) meets under the asbestos sheets roof for worship. This is just a temporary hall that they lease. Please pray for this dear brother and his family.
As a group, we are going through the workbook, “Knowing the Living God” written by Bro. Paul Washer. This study on Theology Proper is much needed in our area. We are grateful to God for allowing us to be a part of this ministry in telling others who He is, and what He has done. We also wanted to thank HeartCry and donors for holding the rope, and providing us with these much needed resources to help train the pastors here in India.
We also gave the brothers two additional books. We gave them RC Sproul’s systematic theology book titled, “Everybody’s a Theologian” and David Helm’s book, “One to One Bible Reading.” Both of these books are now available in our own language, Telugu. We are grateful to the Gospel Coalition for making these resources available. We thank God for their sacrifice and efforts.
Trusting the Lord that He May bless our efforts, and bring forth lasting fruit, not only in our lives, but also in the lives of our congregations.
