By God's amazing, unfailing grace, our ministry in Christ is going well. Last August, we did outreaches, went on evangelism trips, and showed Jesus movie in different parts of Odisha. They were really fruitful as many perishing souls came to the Lord, to eternal life in God's kingdom.
I'd like to share about a mission trip to Hundijhali on the top of the tallest mountain Niyamgiri Hill (full of bauxite) in Rayagada and Koraput District.
On our way to Hundijhali village we passed by a tiny village called Kurli where a famous sorcerer lives. He has about 55 villages are under his control. When he heard that our 24-member-team was passing by, he sent a message by Narsama, one of his former disciples, but now a faithful disciple of Christ in our church, saying that he would hear the Good News of Jesus by me.
Knowing his curiosity, we went to see him and preached the Good News of salvation for about an hour. When I gave the altar call, he, his wife, and others who heard the Good News of Christ came to the Lord and accepted the free gift of salvation. Praise be to the name of Jesus!
Please pray for the people we witnessed to in Hundijhali, Kurli and Mundbali to become true disciples of Christ and grow in their faith in the Lord.
"Now when they had gone through the island to Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew whose name was Bar-Jesus, who was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. This man called for Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the Word of God" (Acts 13:6-7)
In His Grace,
