Ten years ago today I went to India for the first time. I was part of a mission team sponsored by a local church. Pastor Moses was one of the translators at a pastor’s conference we held and, well, the rest, as they say, is history. But it isn’t ancient history – it’s living history still going on. In the ten years that followed our shared vision has grown and evolved. It has developed into what it is today, a travelling seminary, teaching the poor pastors throughout Telugu-speaking India. We hold pastors’ conferences and distribute books to help pastors in their ministry.
In 8 trips during these 10 years we have held 110 days worth of pastors’ conferences. We trained 4,325 pastors an 1,245 wives. These 2-day conferences include transportation, food and housing and 5 free books for the pastors. We do all of this for just $25 per pastor. We have written and distribute d 40,000 copies of 5 different books. I have written almost 400 blogs about my experiences in this ministry (they are available in 2 free ebooks) . We have supported 7 orphans for 8 years and we help 25 pastors by giving them $25 a month. We have spoken at many churches over the years. In 2015 we provided over 4,000 Bibles and 220,000 tracts as well as being part of a team effort to provide a water well in a much needed India village (the next blogs will tell about this).
In 2016 we will add women’s and youth conferences. We will write and publish another book (if we have the needed finances – $20,000) in addition to what we are already doing. In the near future I we hope to see this ministry to grow to include other USA pastors who can go to India at other times of the year to hold additional conferences. We also would like to greatly expand our teaching and training ministry through our web site when we have help to do so. Pray God would provide the right person to help with our web sites. Thanks!
It’s been a great honor and tremendous blessing to be part of this wonderful ministry. It has stretched me more than I ever wanted to be stretched but it has also blessed me greater than I ever thought I could be blessed. Without your prayers and financial support it wouldn’t be possible. Thanks so very, very much for your support in so many ways. Without you it wouldn’t be possible.
Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion,
“Your God reigns!”
Romans 10:15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
PRAY FOR this ministry, our upcoming trip to India, and especially the finances needed to do this work. As we move ahead and expand our ministry in this country of 1,300,000 people, 98% who don’t know Jesus, we prayer, wisdom and continued financial support. We trust God will continue to provide for our need.
