“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.” Psalm 145:3
Greetings to you in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Thank you for your prayers and support. Praise God for His grace showered upon us throughout these past 8 months. It is a joy to meet you through this ministry update every month to share the wonders the Lord is doing in our ministry activities. My family is doing well by the grace of God. God is very gracious to meet all our daily needs through His faithfulness. The climate in India is very confusing these days. Some days are very hot and some days it rains due to cyclones. Due to this kind of climatic conditions, many people are suffering wild fevers. Please pray as many of our people in the tribal congregations are facing this health condition. Thank you for your prayers and support.
Praise God for the following:
1. I preached the Word of God at Calvary Baptist Church’s revival meetings August 9th – 11th. There were six sessions all together. Scores of people were revived to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.
2. Sunday the 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th, I preached in different churches to encourage and challenge believers in the Mission Movement.
3. I participated in a Premier Mission Organization Conference in Chennai on the 26th – to learn, understand mission trends, and to discuss and renew a passion for missions.
4. Our Mission Programs: TV ministry, T&F Bible Course, and church planters in different states are progressing well by the grace of God.
1. I am sincerely praying for God’s hand to direct us to expand the ministry to states such as Orissa & Chattisgarh.
2. God’s guidance to launch a specialized ministry among groups like prisoners, beggars, street children and other needy people – I have the burden and am praying for an opening.
3. The upcoming Himachal Pradesh mission trip September 20th-25th
4. Missions Conference, state-wide program to be held from Sept.28th-30th
5. The Orissa ministry, Oct. 5th-7th
May God bless you as you pray for the mission work in India.
Your reward in Heaven is rich. May God’s grace abide with you and your family.
Because of Christ,
Pastor Jayaraj Golla Family
