Dear Friends and Ministry Partners,
Hebrews 13:20-21 is a prayer of blessing. I pray this for you, our faithful Staff and Trainers worldwide and for all of you who are committed to doing God’s will.
“Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever”.
This Global Report will focus on the amazing work of the Leadership Training Centre (LTC), in India and their ministry on the China, Myanmar and India border, plus several urgent prayer requests.
Ramananda and Darshini Meitei – Imphal, Manipur reports:
Al and Mary, we are happy to inform you that our coworkers/evangelists are so faithfully and committedly serving our almighty God by preaching, sharing, witnessing and most importantly by continuing to make disciples with new believers in Christ in their own respective assigned fields.
Two weeks ago, I gave two full days Discipleship training to 87 young energetic youth from different churches. Oh! That was indeed wonderful and very effective. The youth were very excited to apply the lessons they learned. The Pastors expressed their gratitude that many of the youth are using DCI materials and continuing discipleship among the other youths as they were taught.
They said the DCI materials and teaching have become an eye opener for all of us.
Recently I was conducting training with pastors and church leaders from neighboring Churches. I was sharing with PowerPoint about, “What is a Church and How to Grow it? I introduced our DCI materials. They were indeed excited and invited me again for a longer DCI leadership training.
Here I am sharing the “Ultimate Purpose of the CHURCH On This Earth” in one of the most crowded churches in Manipur. Responses were amazing. Please let us continue to pray that the SPIRIT of GOD will continue to work in them and that the Kingdom of God will continue to expand in every heart, every day and everywhere.
I am happy to let you know that 17 new believers have been given water baptism, and another 14 new believers are also ready to be baptized by the end of this year.
It brings great joy and blessing to see God touching many lives in and through our lives and ministries and witnessing many people repenting and rededicating their whole beings to the Lord!
Al and Mary, please pray for us as we are experiencing great challenges and heavy persecution in our state!
I am so happy to share and let you know that, though we face so many problems and difficulties, trials and temptations in life and ministry, our God’s faithfulness endures all the time and His grace abounds in all our lives and is much greater than our problems and difficulties.
Thank you so very much for your wonderful partnership, love, concern and financial supports for me and my family and most importantly for the expansion of God’s kingdom. Please continue to pray for us so that your investment for the Kingdom will not be in vain.- Ramananda and Darshini
China, Myanmar, India (CMI) Border Ministry
Moala and Alem for LTC ministries report: This update is on the ministry of Mr. Yongkong and his team.
Many ministries such as:
1. School of Evangelism (SOE) with 16 students currently.
2. Door-to-door evangelism and new house fellowships.
3. Planted 9 churches. Baptism to 120 new believers.
4. The SOE graduates take care of planted churches.
5. DCI training in all the planted churches by Yongkong.
6. Women’s ministry through Mrs. Yongkong is active.
7. Newly appointed Mr. Konkam as full-time SOE teacher.
As the ministry expands rapidly we need a salary for Mr. Konkam who is a graduate (M.Div.) from our Bible College here in Siliguri. He is a very committed young man and assists Yongkong in all ministry activities. We are praying for $350.00 as his monthly salary.
Praise and Urgent Prayer Requests:
□ Praise God for a professional translator from our church who volunteered to translate our main training Workbook and 12 PowerPoint Sessions into French for Africa. It has been sent out to all the French speaking countries. We look forward to seeing how God will us it!
□ Pray for the monthly salary of $350. for Mr. Konkam to serve in the China, Mymanmar, India Border Ministry.
□ Pray for God to provide $3,000. for Simeon our African Director to cover high costs for food, school fees for 2 children and funeral expenses. Any amount toward this would be a great blessing!
□ We are praying for God to provide major finances to meet the present needs and to expand the DCI Ministry. We have 2 potential donors who want to donate significant finances but they are experiencing obstacles in their ability to give.
Your donations are making a big difference by enabling the gospel of Jesus to change the lives of so many people. Through the Life of Christ people are transformed, Churches are Transformed, and Communities are Being Transformed!
