Church Planting & Evangelism Jebaraj Volume 2605

CHURCH PLANTING & EVANGELISM Jebaraj - Home Page South India THE POWER OF GOD – Last Sunday, Och** came to share her testimony in our prayer gathering. Och*** and her husband have a small cotton and sugarcane farm on their own land. Watering is must for their work. But from a few months ago, there is no rain in our area and their area groundwater level was zero. And their well was now dry. They wanted to dig deep in their well to search for water. But the neighbors advised them not to waste their money. They said some other farmers in their village tried this and failed. So they worried about this situation for some days. After reading the Bible, they decided to have faith in Jesus’ power to help them find water in their well. So this lady Och*** prayed earnestly! Then they called for the borewell lorry to dig in their well and at 450th feet the water came abundantly. PRAISE THE LORD! Everyone in the church gave praise to Jesus!

Towards the end, the person who gave us a ride in the auto decided to have his blood pressure checked. It was kind of a funny deal. He didn’t think anything was wrong with him. He was living a good Hindu-vegetarian life. Well, it was not big serious, but his blood pressure was very high 220/150. So we sent him to the hospital right away and made the arrangements for him to see a doctor for further treatment. We prayed to our Je*** that he would reach hospital safely. God answered our prayers. And he is NOW having to examine his heart, spiritually and physically. He is having to see his religious ways didn’t help his heart! Please keep him in your prayers as we plan to follow up on his whole being soon. We are safe from ‘Titili’ cyclone. By the grace of God ministry going well. 1. Medical ministry 2.

Church Planting, Mercy Ministry Mark A. Volume 2606

MARK: Church Planting & Mercy Ministry Mark and Hepsibah Village Ministry Acute Alcoholic Saved After drinking for forty-years, Kris***  is now a sixty-five-year-old acute alcoholic. Through the years, we have consistently met with Kris*** and shared about the power of the One who came to give us a new life in Him. But she had never paid attention. The other day she became extremely ill and she went to the doctor. But he didn’t give her any hope for life. In short, he said that her addiction had damaged all her vital organs. She left the doctor’s office very depressed. And when she returned home, she tried to commit suicide. Luckily, the family members in the house saw what was happening and rescued her. Soon after this incident, our team came to her home and we again shared the Good News with her and all her family. This time she chose to believe in Je*** over and above her traditional beliefs. PRAISE THE LORD!  We prayed with her and we are talking with them about their next steps in faith. Please pray for a complete change in her life!

When I saw her I said to the J-hater, “Jesus is the healer from sickness.” Then I asked...

Sewing, Literacy, and Counseling

Through Equip the Nations indigenous missionaries, we want to empower abused and poverty-stricken women to live freely to the Lord by adding ten more slum sewing, literacy, and biblical counseling centers. https://equipthenations.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/CounselingCenters.mp4 Our centers provide the atmosphere for women to truthfully talk with other women about their daily needs and struggles. The honesty allows our workers to use the Bible to answer their discussion questions. And often times, this opens the door for us to teach literacy and present the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We understand that it takes time for abused and poverty-stricken women to learn that their new identity can be found in Christ. And that Christ will never leave or forsake them. Through the sewing, literacy, & Counseling centers each abused poverty-stricken woman has the opportunity to believe that she is of great worth to Jesus. And that He can take her from a place of rejection, anxiety, and begging to a place of acceptance, hope, and financial security. We emphasize that Jesus paved the road to grace and forgiveness with His blood to empower all to walk the narrow road. This key lesson is hard for an abused woman living in the slum to grasp. But with prayer and counseling, all things are possible. After the training, the women can produce clothes to be sold to their neighbors, in their nearby markets, and distributed through local merchants. Our goal is to set up ten NEW sewing literacy and counseling centers in the...
