I want to share about our ministry in India for your valuable prayer support and moral support and if possible financial support. I am a Hindu by birth and naturally as a Hindu I used to worship Gods made of clay, wood, stone, bronze, brass etc. but I did not have the satisfaction nor joy. Once I was invited to a Christian meeting in my neighborhood, I reluctantly attended the meeting, the Lord spoke to me in a special way. I realized that I was a sinner. I accepted the Lord as my personal savior (after some days of hearing the word of God of course!) After my studies I heard the call of God, and after much struggle I submitted to the Lord for the full time service. From then on my Lord had been faithful to me. We are involved now as a Church and Ministry in taking the Gospel to places where he is not known. Our burden is to plant at least 200 churches by the year 2010. With 200 missionaries/pastors shepherding them. This needs your prayer and support.

We are Fundamental Baptist, Independent, non-charismatic people who love the Lord and His word! Basically we have a ministry among the non-Christiansand involved in Church Planting, Children ministry, work among the widows, Aids Patients, Children Scholarships, Bible Institute (for the village Pastors in their local language).
By the Grace of our Lord we could reach some souls for His Glory since 1990!
All these years HE had been so faithful we could just stand in awe and express our heartful gratitude, even though there are so many sorrows and heart-breaks in the ministry. By persecutions, trials and testing our faith and dependence upon the Lord grew and we did learn many lessons in the life which are learnt only in the "School of Life".
We covet your prayers for our ministry and things we attempt for His Glory!
"Faithful is He that Calleth you, who also will do Brethren, pray for us" 1 Thess 5:24,25.
