Dear brothers and sisters,
I just wanted to give you an update on our travels and training. Last month, my family, along with several pastors in the area, traveled about seven hours away to meet at pastor V________ church.
We had a blessed time of fellowship with his church and family. He is such an encouragement. God is working through him to draw many to Christ. I am thankful for a couple of the young men whom God has saved and raised up to help him in the ministry. They are truly seeking the Lord through the study of His Word. Many of the other church members came from a very strict religious background. They have been threatened, and attempts have been made to drive them out of the village. However, the Lord is faithful in His sustaining grace. Please pray that the Kingdom of Christ will continue to advance, even in the midst of struggle.
Please remember the pastor of this congregation concerning his health and family. He is diabetic and has a high blood pressure. Along with his health concerns, please pray for his family. He is also raising two teenage boys.
It was a blessed trip. We were able to use this time together to seek the Lord in prayer, study the Scriptures, and have much needed fellowship. During our meetings together, we have been slowly walking through the book, “The Gospel Call and True Conversion” by Paul Washer. The pastors are very excited to learn these doctrines. They come from various backgrounds, and many have trouble articulating these basic truths clearly. By His grace, God has opened a way for these brothers to learn these basic doctrines of the Christian faith. It is a great joy to see their growth. We appreciate all the prayers, and the support that equips the body of Christ in India.
Your brother and sister in His vineyard,
Sunder and Glory
