Dear Ones in Christ,
We pray that you are enjoying the summer! As you spend time with family and friends, we pray that the Lord is renewing and nourishing you in this season of rest. Exodus 33:14 reminds us that the Lord’s presence is with us wherever we go, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” We can rest assured, that the Lord is our sustainer and protector. We pray that the Lord communicates this truth to you in deep ways this season.
In June, I again had the opportunity to witness how the Lord is continually at work with the ministry in India. My dad and I left for India on June 11th. We arrived safely, and had many productive meetings while we were both on the campus in Kerala. We are thankful that we met this year’s Bible college students and the children in the children’s home. The new school year, which began the first week of June is starting off well. Please join us in prayer, as we lift up the Bible college students as they continue with their studies. Please also pray for the children, that each may know the deep love of the Lord in a refreshing way this new school year. We are thankful for your partnership in prayer, as we truly believe that the Lord responds faithfully to your prayers.
G.V. is still ministering in India, continuing to conduct meetings and disciple new believers. He plans to return to California on July 25th. Please pray that the Lord would continue to strengthen him and give him restorative nights of rest, as he prepares for each new day. Last week, my dad conducted special meetings with local churches in Mumbai. As you saw in the Spring 2017 newsletter, the Lord is working through the faithful evangelists who desire to make His name known throughout India’s financial capital. Please pray that God would continue to sustain them, and give them each what they need for each day.
We praise the Lord for His faithfulness in providing us with a new administrative assistant at our campus in Kerala. While I was at the campus, I had the opportunity to welcome her to the IEM team. She will be assisting with various tasks around the campus, and will be communicating with the U.S. office on a regular basis, informing us of campus happenings and sharing specific stories of how the ministry continues to impact people’s lives. Please pray for her and her family.
Thank you for your continued partnership in touching the lives of people in India with the Gospel. We are uplifting you in our prayers as well.
Yours in His Service,
