We distributed charging lights to all the evangelists. There will be a light, so lights in all the villages. It is great blessing to have light in the darkness. We thank you so much for these lights. We convey our hearty thanks and gratitude to all the donors. May God bless you abundantly for this noble cause.

And all evangelists received your loving financial gifts that is their hope in the jungle areas with their families.

To,

Beloved Pastor Dave, Beloved sister Carol, and all the IHC staff, and all the believers in the IHC,

Hearty Greetings to you all in the precious name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. It is wonderful and great privilege to me to write to my beloved family in the USA. I thank you so much for all your love, prayers and financial help to my ministry in India. I thank you so much for helping with churches constructions in the jungle areas for the tribal believers. Right now in three villages church construction is going on in these villages.

1. Biyampalli (village pastor Bro. Vijaya kumar,  2. Rajavaram (village pastor Bro. Ananias),  3. Medijerla (village pastor Bro. Yohan). I am very busy in looking after this construction work and traveling from one place to another place. I am almost living in the jungle areas. These three villages are very far from the one place to another and surrounded by huge mountains you can see them in the pictures. Lots of witchcraft and all types demon possessed practices are going on in these places. But our Lord did great work in these village people’s hearts and now many people accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. Now they all felt very happy and their hearts filled with great joy for the Churches construction in their villages. I thank you so much for your great hearts for these jungle people. Please convey to our beloved families those who helped with these churches constructions financially. May our Loving God bless them abundantly and grant their hearts desires.

All the Evangelists and their families and all the Lepers and their families are very much blessed with your Loving gifts, food and medical aid. They need your Love and prayers continuously.

We prayed for Jet in jungle area many days. We praised and thanked God for His sufficient Grace to Jet and continuously praying for his complete health. We are also praying for our Beloved Pastor Dave’s complete restoration.

Our special thanks to Pastor Dave and Beloved sister carol and also our special Thanks to all the IHC staff individually. Please convey our heartiest thanks to all the IHC family. And also please convey my special thanks and Gratitude to the families those who loved me so much while I was in Chino.

I have no word to convey to all of you except we Love you and praying for you.
Please pray for us continuously,

With much prayers and with much Gratitude,

To,

Beloved Pastor Dave, Beloved sister Carol and all the Saints in the IHC,

Hearty Greetings to you all in the most highly exalted name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,

I thank you all so much for your concern and burden for our ministry in India. Mainly I thank you all for the heart for the perishing souls in the interior jungle areas. And also I thank you all for the 15 bicycles with these bicycles they can easily reach out to many villages with their wives and with the Gospel. These 5 charging lights are great help in the night times because in the villages no electricity for many hours in the nights please pray that everybody must have one in their houses. And 4 sound systems to the Evangelists to preach the good news. Their happiness has no bounds.

The Bibles 11 boxes, in the villages when they receive the Bible they felt very happy and hug the Bible with their whole heart and promised me that we will read the Bible without fail regularly. And we also purchased one motor bike for the outreach ministry. I personally thank all the IHC brothers and sisters in the Lord for stretching your hands for this noble work. God will surely honour your faith and surely bless you and your families abundantly. And also I thank families those who are helping construction of Church buildings. I am going to send pictures very soon.

All our Lepers also received food and medical supplies with your Loving gift. This is very hot summer here; in this time of dire need they were very much comforted and consoled.

Since I left US, I am praying and looking for a MIRACLE in the life of Pastor Dave. All of sudden I found a Miracle in godsgotthis.org. It shows that all our prayers working together for Miracle. So Miracle is on the way. Desperately need A BIG MIRACLE.

Please pray for our country India, present elected government is totally against to Christians and Gospel. Already in state called Gujarath they removed the Good Friday as a holiday. Like this many things are going to take place. I thank personally to all the staff in IHC for their continuous efforts and continuous prayers for us and for our Ministry in India. I personally convey my Thanks and Gratitude to Pastor Dave and Beloved sister Carol for all their concern, efforts and fervent prayers. You sowed the seed in India and now it is bearing fruit abundantly. And many will have the fruit in the days to come. My humble request is please pour the water continuously so that it will bear the fruit in season and off season.

Every day I remember every movement in IHC with you and I worship my Lord bowing down. The fellowship is great. The food is excellent. GOD BLESSED YOUR COUNTRY ABUNDANTLY. If I close my eyes in the prayer on my knees, I can see all your faces very clearly. My brothers and my sister please pray for my family and my children too in your regular prayers.

With much prayers and with much Gratitude,
Your brother in His service,
Joshua. P
God’s servant.

To, Beloved Pastor Dave, Beloved Sister Carol and all IHC,

Hearty Greetings to you in Jesus’ most precious name,

By the grace of God and with your financial help we covered one more village with the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ. We all reached the village called Palem which is nearly 100 km from Rajahmundry. We Sang Gospel songs in the loud speakers in entire village and distributed Gospel tracts and Gospel Books to every house. We prayed for many sick people and also demon possessed.

We prayed for an old man almost on his death bed in his hut. His wife asked us to pray for your God for my husband who is in his death bed. They are very poor. They do not have any hope and doesn’t have any money to take him to any hospital. She is just waiting for her husband’s death. In this right time our Lord lead us to that village just for this old poor family without any hope. I spoke to her about the love of Lord Jesus Christ and the plan of His Eternal Salvation. The old man heard about the Lord Jesus Christ and moved his head. He is not moving his hands or his legs since many days. But today he moved his head and his wife felt very happy and with tears she said your God is good. My heart is also moved with tears when I saw their poverty. God is thinking and working for His people. You can see in the pictures enclosed.

And also prayed for a woman who is suffering since 8 years with a Liver disease, her stomach is like a balloon full of infection and full of fluid in her liver. She is also on her death bed. Her son heard the Gospel from the loud speakers and asked us to pray for his mother saying that she is been suffering with liver disease since many years. No medicines or no doctor can heal her. In this junction I told him that Jesus can heal her but our sins are more dangerous than this liver disease. He and his mother heard Gospel very humbly. Than we all prayed for her and her face is shining. She received Lord Jesus in her heart.

Thirdly we prayed for a lady who lost her husband last week and she is suffering with demons. She could not sleep in the night times. And she is screaming in the every mid night. She explained her problem to us. We all prayed for her and after prayer she felt so happy and said my heart is free now I am very much happy in my heart. I explained her about the power of our Lord Jesus Christ and also His Eternal plan of Salvation. She prayed a confession prayer.

After the outreach we all had a dinner together. And we all prayed for Beloved pastor Dave’s health with much burden and with much tears.

After that my brother Hanoch and my son Jacob conducted a free medical camp. Many found sick and received medicines. In these villages many people are suffering with many types of diseases. Government hospitals are very far and they cannot travel to those places. And these poor villagers they cannot afford. Many times I see people suffering and dying with some disease. No body reaches them to help medically. That is why our Lord spoke to me many times about this free medical camp along with Gospel Outreach.

All the Evangelists received your Loving gift happily. They all are conveying their Greetings and hearty Gratitude you all. God is using us in these remote villages according to His pleasure and Plan. We are not worthy but Lord is willing. All the Glory and Honor belongs to Him alone. We thank you so much for your kindness and burden for these remote villagers. Your Love and financial help is great. With that alone we are able to reach out to these villages. We have lot of burden to reach out many villages in the days to come. Please pray for us and for our Ministry. In the coming days may not be like this but very hard but still as long as we live we want to work for the Lord with your help and prayers.

All the Lepers and their children are also received food and medicines with your great help. They received your Love and experienced your touch in their heart s and in their bodies. All the time they are much Thankful to you.

We thank you so much for all your Love, Concern, Prayers and Financial help.
Our special Thanks and special Gratitude to our Beloved Pastor Dave and Beloved Sister Carol for their continuous efforts for our Ministry in India.

Please pray for us and for our Ministry continuously.
With much prayers and with much Gratitude,
Your brother in His service,

To,

Beloved Pastor David, beloved sister Carol and all the Believers in IHC,

Hearty Greetings to you all in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

By the Grace of God almighty and with your fervent prayers, Love, Concern and continuous charity we were able to go further in the Gospel Ministry. Our Loving God helping us to go beyond the territories of the Andhra Pradesh with the Gospel. I thank you so much for your great concern for the work of the Lord and passion for the perishing souls. In the same time your great burden for the poor and needy people of Lepers and their children and evangelists and their families. With your constant Love alone our Lepers and their children are having food and medical supplies. In the same time our beloved Evangelists and their children are also having food and working for the Lord in jungle areas for the Gospel sake in spite of all hurdles. But the encouragement you are giving them is great. All time Evangelists says that we are having a big family in USA and they are praying for us continuously. That is the reason why we are able to go further for the Kingdom of God. Thank you so much for your encouragement and powerful prayers and continuous burden for the Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ. It is always so good to build the Kingdom of God together on the face of the earth which will never perish and will bring forth the gift and honor from almighty God.

This week we reached a village where no evangelist reached so far because the Nuxalits and Terrorists live in the place, where we should not use any loud speakers and cameras. If they got any doubt about us without any mercy they just shoot us and nobody in that village would dare to come forth and ask. Our Lord led us to that place and we prayed for that place since long time and with God’s promise we went to that place to preach the Gospel. We divided into ten groups and talk to them individually to everybody about God and His Love and His plan of Salvation and the severity of Hell and Everlasting Joy in Heaven. We must finish the job within a short period and leave the place only in the hot sun. We should not live till evening. We spoke to many people personally about God and His Eternal Plan of Salvation. They are the people never heard this message. It the greatest joy for us to tell them about our Lord’s Love in this dangerous place. Here the people are very rude and hard heated people and killing people is just like animals. But every area our Lord protected us because He promised us. Still many areas left for the Gospel and it is our burden to reach those deep forest areas and we are thinking to have our House of Blessing Church building even in those places too. So please pray for this desire if God willing. I believe that God can open hearts of this villagers and if one family accepts our Lord Jesus Christ as their personal savior that is sufficient to enter their village continually. It needs lot of prayer support to defeat Satan.

Churches constructions are great help in these jungle areas. Many broken hearts are comforting; many divided families are building together, many widows and orphans getting hope and many people coming into the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. When many people coming in to the house of God what else we need more than this.

Please pray for us and for our Ministry in India continually.
We are continually praying for Pastor Dave’s good health “surely He will walk” himself.
Once again I thank you all for all your charity, love, concern and prayers.
Please convey our special Greetings, Love and Gratitude to all the IHC.
Our special Gratitude and Thanks to our Beloved Pastor David and Beloved sister Carol.

With much prayers,

Your brother in His service,

To, Beloved Pastor David, Beloved Sister Carol and Beloved I H C,

We Greet you all in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, With your fervent prayers, Love and continuous help we are all doing well here in India. Now here in India is summer, very hot weather from last two months and it will continue another two months.

By the Grace of God and with your Loving kindness and Generosity we were able to construct another Church building in the remote village called Mollaru which is 140 km away from Rajahmundry for tribal believers and Dedicated it for the Lord. We entered inside with praising the Lord for whatever He had done here in our midst. The entire local church believers and with all the Evangelists families we entered inside the New Church Building joyfully. All our hearts filled with great joy and happiness. We heard the first message about the House of God and its importance. God has given all of us wonderful time. And all the local church conveying their Love and Gratitude from bottom of their hearts to all of you with the joyful tears.  For the first time we all had the delicious dinner in the New Church Building.

All the Evangelists received your Loving gift in the New Church Building.   In the New Church Building we all prayed for our Beloved Pastor David’s health. I myself personally waited upon the Lord for our Beloved Pastor David and Lord spoke to me from the scriptures the following. “Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord ‘Remember O Lord, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes. And Hezekiah wept bitterly.  Then the word of the Lord came to Isaiah ‘Go and tell Hezekiah, this is what the Lord, the God of your father DAVID says: I have heard your prayers and seen your tears; I will add fifteen years to your Life’”. Isaiah 38: 2 – 6.

Please pray for the MCR sandals to Lepers and also pray for sound systems as I requested earlier to the tribal churches.   One of the most important and urgent requirement in our Ministry right now is BURIAL GROUND. In India every denomination will have their own burial grounds. They will not allow others in their burial grounds. But the Government allotted a place beside the river Godavery to all communities, (all casts) Hindus will burn the dead bodies in the same place and Christians (people like us who do not have burial ground) will also bury in the same place and at the same time. Many of the times lot of fighting will happen in the same place because some Hindus burn dead bodies and the same time Christians will come to bury bodies. This is the biggest problem for us here in our Place.

We will have floods in every year and the entire things will wash away and we will not find and remembrance. The ground will become plain. Please pray for this request. I humbly thank you all for your Love, Kindness and continuous financial help for our Ministry in India a lot.  I specially thank to Pastor Dave and sister Carol for all their efforts to support our ministry in India with which we are able to proclaim the Gospel in many interior places in India.

Many people accepted Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, many sick healed and many demon possessed delivered. All these things happened just because of your constant help only. You will find your rewards in heaven.   Please remember all of us in your prayers continually.  With prayers and with Gratitude,

Your brother in His service,
Joshua. P God’s servant.

To Beloved Pastor David and beloved sister Carol and all the saints in IHC,

We greet you all in the sweet and precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. By the Grace of God we passed the winter and entered in to the summer now in India.

We thank you all for all your love, kindness, concern and fervent prayers for us and for our ministry in India, and also we thank you so much for all your generosity for our ministry in India. Tribal villagers are hearing the Good News of Lord Jesus Christ and many people are being healed and many people are comforting and many hopeless people are getting hope in their lives. Many orphans and widows are strengthened.

By God’s grace and with your continuous prayers we were able to proclaimed Good News of Lord Jesus Christ in one more village which is nearly 100 km from Rajahmundry. We sang Gospel songs with drums and other musical instruments in the village streets. Many tribal villagers heard the Gospel. We spoke to many individuals personally about the Love of God and His eternal plan of Salvation. A young lady asked us to pray for conceive, with this opportunity we told her God’s power and his miracles, she got faith and also she received Lord in to her heart.

A young pregnant Hindu lady very much touched with the Good News and asked us the Bible, She filled with the great joy when she received the New Testament Bible.

We met two farmers coming from their fields and heard the Gospel as we are preaching in the loud speakers. Immediately they said we don’t need this God we have got many gods, stop it. But I put my hands upon their shoulders and explained them the Love of God and His Son Jesus died for all of us on the Cross and He gave us everything including Heaven freely if you confess for your sins before your death. They were very much melted in their hearts and received some Gospel Tracts and left us joyfully.

We met a young married lady suffering with demons since 6 months. She cannot sleep in night times and all the day severe pain in her head and shoulders and fear in her face. She explained her all problems with much tears. I told her the power of Jesus how He can drive them away if we trust in Him. She heard the entire Gospel very patiently then I anointed her with oil and prayed for her. Instantaneously she has got great peace and great joy in her heart and we can see in her face wonderful smiling with clear face without any fear. Our Lord worked in her and drives away the demons and freed her. You can see her smiling face in the pictures. As we are leaving she asked me please change my name because she has got the name of some the goddess called Bavani. Immediately I changed her name as Esther, she felt very happy and asked me what is the meaning of Esther I explained her all the story of Esther. Immediately she said I will pray like Esther and work for my people and I will tell them about my healing. This is how our Loving and Living God using all of us in His Ministry in India in many villages.

First Church construction is completed and this coming week we are going to put roof and the second one basement and the walls completing.

All the Evangelists and their families and all the Lepers and their families are doing well and they all received your Loving gifts and food and medical aid. They all are conveying their Love and Gratitude to all of you and praying for Beloved Pastor Dave’s good health sincerely.

Thank you so much for all your Love, Concern, Prayers and help. Please pray for all of us continuously.  With much Prayers and with much Gratitude,

Your brother in His service,
Joshua. P
God’s servant.

To,

Beloved Pastor David, Beloved Sister Carol, all the saints in IHC and committee of IHC,

We greet you all in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

First of all I thank you all for your Love, generosity and fervent prayer for us and for our Ministry in India.

We hope that all of you might have enjoyed the Christmas and New Year special time with New messages, with New Promises, with New dedications, and with New blessings in Jesus name. With your Loving Christmas Gift we celebrated Christmas in both Leper colonies with Lepers and with their children. They all received Christmas gifts with your financial gift. They all felt very happy and blessed you all with grateful heart. All had special Christmas dinner. Evangelists and their children are also received special Christmas gifts and your financial gifts too. We all together had special Christmas dinner. We all are very much enjoyed God’s presence together. (pictures enclosed)

Our Loving Lord heard our prayers and helped us to purchase 8 bicycles with your Loving gift money to the Evangelists those who are living in very remote areas where there is no transport facilities and working for the perishing souls. With these bicycles it is easy to go to long distances to visit remote villages and preach the Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ. These bicycles are great help to our evangelists. Please convey our special Love and Gratitude and Thanks to all the brothers who are worked hard to raise money for this bicycles. May our Loving God Bless them abundantly for this noble cause. And also please convey our deepest Gratitude and thanks to brothers those who gave money liberally for the Gospel sake.

By the Grace of God our New Church construction work has come to basement level (pictures enclosed) this week walls to be constructed and wooden doors and windows to be fixed.

Hearty Greetings to you all in the Precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, By the Grace of God and with your Loving prayers and help we all are doing well in India.

During this week our Loving Lord helped us to proclaim the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ in one more village called Chinabimpalli which is 120 kilometers away from Rajahmundry . In this village nobody ever proclaimed theGood News about our Lord Jesus. People received us very happily and heard the Gospel with great joy.

We met an old widow without children living in that village without any hope in her life. I spoke to her personally about God and His Love, in the beginning she said no God but after some time she agreed and said now what shall I do to go to heaven than I said you must ask God to forgive your sins she gladly received Jesus in to her heart.

A young lady asked us to pray for her child who is suffering with high fever. I explained her how Jesus healed Peters mother-in- law. She got faith and we prayed and Lord healed her child immediately. An old lady argued with me long time saying that there is no God and said we are gods. After long argument she herself agreed that there is God but she refused to confess for her sins.

An old man could not walk since 10 years with frozen right knee joint and become bed ridden. We prayed for him after prayer he got up on his both legs and he walked. Our Lord healed him and very much thankful to God.

One whole family heard about Lord Jesus and all of them confessed for their sins and asked us to come again.We met many individuals and we spoke to many people personally about the Love of God and His Eternal plan of Salvation. Many people received Lord in to their hearts.

Our Lepers and their children received food and medical supplies and Evangelists received your Loving gift money. Their hearts filled with much Gratitude and conveying their hearty thanks to you all. Thank you so much for all your Love, Concern, Prayers and financial help to our Ministry in India. Please pray for us continuously. Your brother in His service, Joshua. P God’s servant

Beloved Sister Carol, Pastor David, and all the saints in IHC,

Hearty Greetings to you all in the most precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are all doing well. Thank God that we are escaped from heavy rains and flood waters. More areas of my state were greatly damaged and most part of the lands is inundated. I can say it is a great devastation caused by the havoc of floods. Still we are having flood waters and low level houses are damaged. Our area is so blessed and safe but almost all of my evangelical area is greatly damaged. Poor people are suffering for food and many families lost their residential huts.

By the grace of God we are able to cover another new village with the Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ. These people received us with great love and affection. All of our team reached the village and proclaimed the Gospel walking in mud-roads. We reached every house on the day and walked in mud area but covered all the village with the Gospel of Jesus. Many people responded to the Gospel and some people requested us to visit again with the Gospel.

1. An old lady having no children or husband and living lonely was attracted with our revival songs and requested us to pray for her. Personally we explained her about the heaven and immediately she asked us to show the away for Eternity. We explained her about sin and the sinners cannot enter into the gate of heaven. We asked her to confess for her sins. We explained about the death of Jesus on the cross and his resurrection on the third day from dead.  She confessed for her sins, she received the great joy and peace, and saying that now I am very happy for rest of my life because Jesus is with me, I am not alone.

2. We met with a witchcraft lady in the village. She boldly refused to hear about Jesus and instead she announced that she herself is God in that village. She is much stubborn and threatened the villagers with her deadly activities through which she is earning more for her livelihood. I asked her, “Can you live without air?” She said, “No.” So immediately I said, “Who has given that air?”  She said, “I don’t know.” Then I said, “God our creator has given freely to everybody and to you also.” Then she had no more answers. I explained her about God’s Love and I said, “You are breathing air into your lungs freely and living. That is God’s Love for you even though you refusing Him, but He is allowing you to live.” Then she humbles herself and said, “I will think about God now.”

3. We met a young boy who lost his parents when a poisonous snake bite him. He became a drug addict and anti-social element. When we are talking about God, he immediately objected and said that there is no God. So I said that there is God who loves you so much and also by His grace we are able to preach God’s love in this village and to you. When we explained about the real love of God and value of cross, he accepted Jesus as His Savior and took some Bible tracks to read.

4. There we saw a boy in the age of 9 years and he could not talk because of his twist in his tongue. His parents suffering a lot on seeing the plight of their son. His mother heard our songs and reached us. She beseeched us to pray Jesus for her son. Then all of us prayed for that boy. After prayer I asked that boy to say “Amma,” which means mother in our language. He for the first time in his life called her mother “Amma”. His mother knew no bounds for the speaking of the boy. This news spread over the village and the whole village astonished for this act of Jesus about this boy. Praise the Lord.

5. One lady brought her husband before us. That man is intoxicated with alcohol and spending all the money for his abnormal drinking. She requested us to specially pray for her husband to be redeemed from drinking. Then I shouted at that man and admonished to ask Jesus for forgiveness for his sins. Before all the gathering this man miraculously confessed openly about all his secret sins before his wife and admitted Jesus as his Savior.

6. Thank God that He is utilizing us in His service. Thank you so much for your love and help. We prayed for many persons in the village after having our personal counseling with them.

All of our evangelists and their families are doing well and thanking you for your gift money. All the children and leper victims are also doing well and received your great help. They all are also thankful to you.

We thank God that he has opened doors to construct one more new church with the help of IHC in India. We convey our deepest Gratitude and Thanks to all the members in IHC. Thank you so much once again for the money you sent for the New Church Construction in tribal village. We laid a foundation stone prayerfully with all our evangelists and now the work is going on speed. All of our evangelists participated in the “foundation function”. Thanking you so much for your love and compassion towards the evangelism in India. Please remember us in all your prayers continuously. We are also fervently praying for you.

Our special Thanks and Gratitude to you and Pastor David for all your Love, concern, compassion and efforts for us and India Ministry.

With much Gratitude and much Thanks,
Your brother in His service,
Joshua. P
God’s servant.

Hearty greeting to you all in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Through your intensive prayers and help, all our evangelists and their families are doing well in Lord. Specially and particularly I thank you for your love gift “VAN” to our ministry this year. The vehicle is much useful to reach our destinations in time in a safe manner. We are able to meet the villages situated in remote forest areas. It is really a blessing to us.

Our Lord Jesus helped us to reach another two new villages to preach the Gospel. This is the first time these tribal people hear about Jesus, the Savior of the world. We preached Gospel through the loud speakers and all the villagers received us with love. They are much interested to know about God. I am able to see the greatest response among these villages. We are the first evangelists who preached about Jesus in these two villages. We prayed for many sick people and preached the good news, and God did many miracles.

We also met an old man feeding his sheep in deep forest. He never heard about Jesus. We personally explained about the real God and his love, and also about Heaven and Hell. After talking with him, he asked us, “what to do if I want to enter into Heaven.” I asked him to pray for confession and he prayed obediently. His name is Atchanna. Please remember him in your prayers.

We met with a nuxalite who performed many murders and wandering in forest in shadow. When he saw us, he thought that we are police force came to catch him. He also showed us his knife, but when we told him that we are servants of Jesus he calmed down and patiently heard our preaching about Jesus and his great love towards the sinners. We showed him the Calvary cross with two thieves and one in right side of Jesus who was saved by Jesus. He heard what all we said and we noticed his satisfaction through his face. We gave him some Bible tracts and a New Testament. He is fully satisfied and promised us to read the Bible in future.

During our street preaching one young lady invited our team to her house where we explained about our Lord the only begotten Son sent to this world to be died and resurrected for the sins of the world. On hearing the whole matter she shed tears and asked me whether she may be pardoned for her sins. I explained her about the plan of salvation and she prayed with us.

We met a young husband and wife who heard our preaching about our Lord. After finishing our message both these two knelt before God and very loudly confessed their sins before God and began to cry. All of my evangelists and myself laid our hands on both of them and prayed for them. They felt glad to know that their sins are pardoned.

We met a family who are worshiping an idol called “Bakasura” and the picture is in front of their house. When our team is evangelizing the grandmother of the family came forward and heard Jesus as a Savior and his miracles. She asked us to see her grandson lying on bed for a break in his right leg and he became bed patient. We all explained about the miracle power of Jesus and prayed for the boy. To our greatest joy the bed patient boy stood on his legs with his own accord and praised Jesus walking this way and that. All the neighbors gathered and witnessed this miracle. The father of the boy observed all these things and suddenly knelt before God and asked us to pray for him also. After our prayer, he promised us to become the believer of Jesus and requested us to come again to tell more about Jesus. We really thanked Jesus for this miracle beyond our expectation.

So in this way we preached the Gospel of Jesus in the remote villages. We prayed for many sick people. After 4pm, we all had our lunch in that village and all our evangelists received your gift money and prayed for you. Please pray for us and for our ministry continuously. Thank you so much for all your love, concern, and financial help for our ministry in India.

With much thanks and with much Gratitude,
Your brother in His service,
Joshua P
God’s servant
