*See video at the end of this post for Thanksgiving greetings from Brother Ebey.

Native pastors in North India - these men thank you for your prayers and support!

“I thank my God upon every remembrance of you….”

So wrote Paul the apostle to the saints in Philippi. And today at Serve India, as we reflect on the goodness of God over the past year, we echo Paul’s words.

Today, there are other men like Paul who are giving their lives to proclaim the Gospel. Some of them minister in difficult places, where each time they open their mouths to speak the name of Jesus, their lives are in jeopardy. Others minister under difficult physical circumstances, or press on despite financial obstacles.

Like the Apostle Paul, they too, are grateful for you! One of our pastors in South India shares,

“I am so thankful to the Lord for giving me the opportunity to serve people in unreached villages. Also, I thank you for your prayers and financial support.

“Recently, we went to a nearby village for sharing the Gospel. Initially, I could not see much fruit. But later, eight people came forward for prayer. As they heard God’s Word, they started to believe in Jesus. By seeing the changes in their lives, five more people came forward and started believing in Jesus. As a result now a fellowship group has started in this village….

“I am greatly blessed by Serve India’s monthly training. When I started teaching my believers, they responded and started sharing the Gospel with people. As a result, we started two branch churches and four fellowship groups. The church is growing, and the believers there are growing in their spiritual life. Praise the Lord!”

As we look back over this past year, we are humbled to see the Lord’s hand at work through you.

Today, we see the Word of God is going forth in India – because of your partnership.

We see native pastors trained and equipped for effective ministry – because of your generosity.

We see children being fed, cared for, loved, and taught – because of your compassion.

We see the Light of the Gospel penetrating the nation of India – pointing India’s people to Jesus – because of your vision.

Thank you for giving to help make the Gospel known among all nations. Like the Apostle Paul, we and the native pastors across all of India echo our thanks to God – upon every remembrance of you.

Gratefully,

The Team at Serve India
