Greetings to you all from India!
Thank you for your long-term support of our mission. I would be remiss if I didn't note how grateful I am that many of you have continued to be supportive of me and the work Ron and I have been involved with for 23 years. In this time of unrest and COVID as well as the many challenges our churches have faced, we must continue to pray for guidance.
We are nearing Christmas and we traditionally send funds to India to buy new clothes and Christmas treats for the children. This year all of our efforts will go towards feeding the children in our 14 orphanages in New Delhi and Mumbai and to the 450 pastors and their congregations all around Tamil Nadu. We now have two pastors in the hospital with one of them on a respirator. By the grace of God we have not had any deaths at this time in our churches.
The construction of the new boys' home at the farm will soon begin. We praise the Lord that we have been granted permission to build the Bible school. There is a great deal of persecution in the villages which has stopped the building of Open Bible churches at this time. Our focus has changed for the time being and we have begun to diligently work to revitalize our beautiful farm at the foot of the mountains as a retreat center. Our desire is to provide a safe environment where the pastors, families, and groups can gather.
"When two or three are gathered together in My name,
I am there in the midst of them."
Matthew 18:20 NKJV
I believe God has brought us to this place at this time. The boarders of the farm are shared with "ISHA." A Hindu shrine that is very famous and well visited by people all over the world. What a better place and what better time to develop our beautiful farm into a place of light and love and serenity for all who love God to gather.
