Greetings in our soon-coming Savior’s mighty name! We send our heart-felt gratitude and fondness to you for having been with us in our humble ministry in Kerala - both through prayers and through material support which have been an immense strength for us. We trust in the Lord that you and your beloved are safe in the arms of Jesus and that you are being led according to His will. We continue remembering you in prayers ask that Heaven's blessings may be showered on you as we tread through in this desert-journey, homeward.
I am thrilled to share with you the story of a 90-year old man – Ramayyer, who is disowned by his children. I met him on one of my morning walks and brought him home for breakfast. As a matter of fact, I now see him almost every day and hand over a little help for a cup of tea and snacks. One of these days, I brought him again to Asha Bhavan with me. At the Home, on that day, I shared the Gospel with him and encouraged him to look for that beautiful Glory land that outshines the Sun. Praise God that he prayed with me, and was led to the Lord at this prime age! I thank my God that he was able to hear of Jesus and of an Eternity he could have with Jesus. After he was fed and a little pocket money was given, I took him back. The joyous and encouraging fact is that he wants to see me every day. When I go for my walks down the street, he would be sitting by the roadside – these are his words; “I cannot, but see you”. This is what he had to say further – “I have God and you to help me”.
Photographs of our conversation with Ramayyer are attached for you to see.
Biju & Athira
One more couple joined the Lord’s family recently through our ministry here as God is using me these days drawing people to His fold. Praise God! The couple’s names are Biju and Athira. A Christian friend of mine, Sreejesh, had asked me to contact them, as they had worked for him in his resort. I spoke to Biju, the husband and he committed his life to the Lord. He is now bringing Asha, his wife as well to Ashabhavan, for fellowship and to listen to the Gospel. Leela is prayerfully sharing the Gospel with her and at His time, we trust that He leads her as well to Him. Please remember them in your prayers as well, as they are interested in coming for the Worship meeting on Sundays.
I am excited and at the same time humbled that people are turning to Jesus as I am burdened to share Him with them before it is too late - the anti-Christian rulers are making things very difficult for us these days. Please stand with us in intercession for the furtherance of his kingdom in this part of the world.
1 Thessalonians 5:24,25 - The One who calls you is faithful, and He will do it. Brothers, pray for us as well.
Yours in His service
Paul & Leela
