Some snapshots from a South Indian mission field:
Pastor Chinnaiah was doing evangelism throughout a South Indian village. As he shared the Gospel with people, he came across a worried couple. Noticing that they looked very discouraged, he asked them what their problem was. They opened up their hearts and shared that their daughter was suffering from severe tuberculosis. Her condition had become quite serious. The parent’s love and worry showed on their tensed faces.
Pastor Chinnaiah shared Jesus with them and gave them hope that nothing is impossible with Christ. This family put their trust in the Lord and started attending church. The Lord did a miracle and their daughter started to recover. Within a month’s time, she was completely healed. This increased the faith of this family.
Pastor Chinnaiah began to regularly visit this family and disciple them in the faith. Soon, a fellowship group was started in this village and ten people are regularly attending the prayer times. Praise the Lord for showing His mighty power in this village!
What else is God doing in this field?
Here are few quotes from other pastors ministering in this region of South India:
“The Gospel meeting conducted recently in one of the remote villages was a success. Twenty people attended the meeting and two of them gave their lives to the Lord.” – Pastor Rajaiah
“Praise God for helping me establish churches in two villages. Pray for the church construction work in one of the villages to be completed very soon.” – Pastor Mahadeva
“In the month of November 2015, as a church we had arranged a mass evangelism. A good number of believers participated and we visited around 80 villages.” – Pastor Prasad
Each day, across the nation of India, God is using the work of native pastors to spread His Gospel among unreached people. Following the example of Jesus in Luke 4, their heart’s cry is the same as their Master’s –
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed.” – Luke 4:18
