“…And all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.”

Isaiah 52:10

Beloved Ones in Christ,

I write this letter with a grateful heart for your love and commitment to help the work of our Lord in India.  Because of your prayers and support, we have been able to reach a multitude of people with the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ over the years. You will be receiving our newsletter in the next week or two, with pictures and updates on the various ministries.

Our Bible College students will be returning from their short-term mission work by the end of May.  The new school year will commence for the students and children on the first week of June.  Please pray that the Lord will give us grace to select Bible College students who are committed to the work of the Lord.

Recently our team of workers conducted two special evangelistic meetings in Kerala State where five churches joined together.  We also held special meetings in Orissa.  I have reports that the meetings were well attended, and many people made decisions for Christ.  Revival continues in Mumbai, where the evangelists are earnestly working to reach out to many villages.  Because of these crusades and conferences, people are coming to know the Lord and growing strong in their faith with fellow believers.

Since returning from India in February, I have been undergoing tests and treatment for my hip pain.  If I feel better, I will go to India with my son Dayan the second week of June.  My wife, Mariamma, is recovering from another bout with pneumonia.  Please continue praying for both of us (especially Mariamma’s complete healing), and for our son Dayan to have a safe, fruitful ministry in June.

I thank the Lord for inspiring many dear saints in America to take the Gospel to the unreached people in India.  As the Lord extends our days here on earth, let us fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord to take the Gospel to all nations of the world and minister to the poor and needy.  Hebrews 4:12 says the Word of God is powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword.  It will accomplish that which God has purposed. We thank the Lord for your faithful partnership.  May the Lord reward you and bless you abundantly.

With Much Love,
G.V. Mathai
