Beloved Ones in Christ,
Thank you so very much for remembering the ministry of IEM with your fervent prayers and faithful support. The Lord is enlarging the ministry through the preaching of His Word as we minister to the spiritual and physical needs of the people in India. We thank God for the many thousands of people who have come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ over the past 51 years.
Since March, our Bible College students have been engaged in summer ministry throughout various parts of India, camping in remote villages, distributing tracts, conducting VBS programs, and witnessing from home to home. Please pray for their safety and for an effective ministry. They will be returning to IEM the end of May, and the new school year will start on June 5th.
Two weeks ago, some graduates from our Leadership Training Institute went on another Gospel tour to the northern province of Idukki, about 150 miles north of our campus. They stopped in many places to hold open-air meetings and distribute tracts. Please continue to pray that these Gospel tours will bring many people into the Kingdom.
We currently have six churches established in Idukki. Last week we were notified that one of the churches in this mountainous region was badly damaged by a severe rain storm, which is not uncommon, and happened to another church in 2011. The winds were so strong that the church roof and walls collapsed. Even heavier monsoon rains will be coming in June and July. We need to repair the building as soon as possible. Please join us in praying for the Lord’s provision and for all the believers in Idukki.
Along with the Bible College students and supported evangelists, the children in our Children’s Home are also grateful for your loving prayers and support. The Lord has been gracious in keeping them well, and they are growing strong in the joy of the Lord.
Thank you for your continued partnership with us in fulfilling the Great Commission of our Lord. We love you all very much and remember you in our prayers.
Yours in His Service,
