Greetings in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who protected each and every one of us in the year 2008 by His tremendous grace and blessing. While thousands living around us are in sorrow and grief and agony with different situations in their lives how much should we praise our Lord God for keeping us safe and secure! The word of the Lord says: Give thanks to our Lord for He is good and His mercy His everlasting. The year 2008 was a challenging year for us. We had to face many challenges in the spiritual and physical realms. I believe that every Christians are in the field of challenge that we have to face everyday, but are able to over come by the power of God who gives us victory over Satan.
Since last December in the state of Orissa the ongoing persecution against the Christians, also spread to different parts of the country. As a result hundreds of Christians were killed not only in Orissa but in other states also. More than 50,000 people lost their homes and loved ones yet the Government didn't protect the innocent people who are the poor of the poorest. Our Bible school students who were pioneering in those areas were protected by our Lord. The persecution spread from the North to south and many Christians and Christian organizations were shutdown by the religious fanatics. We do not know what will happen in future. Your prayers were a great blessing for us to stand firm in His faith and Love
We had several outreach programs in different villages and towns, and hundreds of people got saved through these outreaches although some problems and disturbances arose in some areas. But the grace of our Lord we were safe and secure and we understood that the people in the villages do not have the freedom to choose the faith they like. They are controlled by the Hindu priests and local authorities who do not allow them to go to church. Recently a young pastor told us that his mother was put in jail because she gave tract in a village. At the same time any other political parties and other religious people can distribute their materials without any trouble or problem. Satan always hate the Gospel and God's People.
The Children's Sunday school program and Talent competition went well, and Christmas celebration with our orphan kids in the Hallelujah Garden was very enjoying. For the Preaching competition our Children from the home got first in all the junior, intermediate and senior batches. It was very interesting to see all the youths from different churches presenting their talents of Dance Skits, and Singing with a competitive mind. The children were so much blessed by food, cloths and gifts. Also God helped us to help couple of poor girl's to get married this year. We wanted to thank you all for your prayers and generous financial support to help do things for the Glory of God in 2008. We are sure God is going to do miraculous things this NEW YEAR 2009 in the Ministry and use us tremendously to do the work of our Lord which we weren't able to accomplish in 2008. For this we need your faithful prayers and financial support, so that this year, many souls who do not know the love of Christ, can be saved. You can be a partner with us and participate in this EVANGELICAL YEAR to reach the thousands who do not know Christ. We love you and Praying for you, and looking forward to hear from you.
In Christ Jesus,
Rev. Roy & Kezia
