“My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory.” ~ Phil 4:19

Beloved Ones in Christ,

Over the years, the scripture quoted above has been a real source of comfort and blessing to me and to the ministry of IEM. Like the Apostle Paul, I am confident in the fact that God is faithful, and He will remember His own and minister to all their needs.

Mariamma and I are so thankful to the Lord for all our wonderful friends who have faithfully prayed and supported this ministry over the past 50 years. Because of you, IEM has been able to reach thousands of people with the message of salvation; and many nationals have been trained to go forth and preach the Gospel. In addition, we have been able to care for the poor and abandoned children, feed the hungry, and support the widows. The Lord is concerned for all these people, and He has promised to reward those who help them (Proverbs 19:17).

By the grace of God, our Bible College ministry is carrying on. We greatly miss our dear Brother Babu Paul, who went home to be with the Lord last month. He was our IEM registrar, and every year he conducted a ministry trip to the northeastern states of India. Please continue praying for his wife and two children (ages 15 & 11).

The Leadership Training Institute is running smoothly and will conclude at the end of this month. The 200 participants are very excited to be studying the Word of God, and many of them have expressed a desire to go into full-time ministry.

We thank God for His blessings upon evangelists and their ministries in various states of India. They are reaching out to many villages as they conduct open-air preaching and distribute Gospel literature.

The children in our Children’s Home are doing well, by God’s grace, and growing in the Lord. I wish all of you could hear their beautiful songs of thanksgiving to the Lord!

Let us be diligent in praying for our brothers & sisters in India.

Yours in His Love,

G.V. Mathai
