House Fellowship (House Church)

Greetings from North India. God has been so faithful to us. The Lord has been leading to Disciple and teach a group of people near our Neighborhood.
Every Wednesday we meet this group of people (House Church). This fellowship was started two years ago. The great news is that this group still meet every week and are eager to learn from God’s word and fellowship with one another.
This group consists of families who were from different faiths but now they believe in Jesus and are eager to learn and grow in Christ.
At present we are teaching them the basic truths from the Bible. They are new in their faith so we are still in the basics. Some of the topics we covered so far are Prayer, worship, Giving, Lord’s supper, faith, evangelism and more. We believe that we don’t just teach but also make sure they practically apply what we learned that evening.
We are in the process of teaching them that since they are meeting to fellowship for the past two years then they could be called a church…

Medical Camp

Greetings from North India….
God has been faithful to us as always and we as a couple are learning and growing more in the knowledge of God.
We are so blessed to be working with amazing people who have a heart for the people and the great thing is that they are doctors as well.
Every Month we do a full day of Medical camp for the locality we live in. During this time, we give them basic check up and provide them with basic medicines like vitamins and iron and some others. The area we reach out to is mostly in the outskirts of the city as there are many people here who don’t even get the basic treatment needed when they are sick. Most of them don’t have money to visit the hospital and many others take Ayurvedic (homemade Medicines).These medicines are not reliable as there could be some side effects from them.
I believe that when Jesus was here on this earth his number one mission was to take up our sins on the cross and die on the cross to save us from hell. He wanted to restore th…

“TRAINING” a part of the Great Commission….

Matthew 28:18-20 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

This Command Includes: Going, making Disciples, Baptizing, and Teaching/Training…..
For the past few months the Lord has called me and my wife to follow these four things. We want to be obedient to the commands that the Lord has commanded us to do. We intentionally share the Gospel to the people we meet in shopping complex, market places, and even the nearby slums that we often go to from time to time. My wife is in the process of getting young girls to meet often to Disciple them and speak into their lives. Most of them come from a broken family with Dads that are drunkards, and violent men who take no responsibility in the…

Iron sharpens Iron

Greetings from North India. We are so in awe of God’s faithfulness, his love and grace in our lives. For the past few weeks me and my wife have seen God bringing in Godly people into our lives in the mission field that we are in.
Few Months ago, my elder brother left the city that we are in and moved to a different location that the Lord was calling him and his family to. He worked faithfully with a local church for more than 5 years alongside with me and now his whole family have gone to minister in other places in India. So, me and my wife were left with no close family members by our side. We were praying for people to come along side us to serve God together and to have fellowship and mentor us. For almost a month we were alone, felt dry and had no one to turn to.
Few weeks later the Lord bought a couple into our lives who also happen to work in the same city as us. They are elder to us and they challenge us to go after God and minister without fear. The Lord answered our prayer…

Teaching Sound Doctrine

Greetings from North India. The Lord has been faithful to us in the past weeks. This is the nature of God and we know that he will always be faithful every day.
My wife and I had the opportunity to minister to many youths in the past weeks. We attended a youth seminar with the title “Change Makers”. This meeting took place outside of the city that we live in. 100 youths from the neighboring villages came and attended this meeting.
Many of these youths do not come from Christian backgrounds, they also recently accepted Christ, they may be the only one who believe in Christ from their family. So, such are people that came to this meeting.
Because they are new in their faith, they may be led by false doctrine or superstitious beliefs. What is sad is that some pastors from the city go into these remote, unreached places and share false doctrine. From the very beginning the new believers are confused.
“Change makers” was basically planned to invite the youths from remote villages and to teach …

Is the Great Commission forgotten?

(Matthew 28: 19-20) Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
We as a Church all around the world know this by heart and we even so powerfully teach it to our congregations. One thing we forget to do is to “FOLLOW” the Great Commission.
Many days ago, I was convicted of this one evening when we had a workshop on one on one Evangelism. This was organized by one of our friends who comes to our Church. We started the meeting and to my surprise there were more than 100 people there. Our Friend taught for an hour and for the next hour we were told to go out on the streets and evangelize. At first many were afraid of the dangers that they can encounter. There was a young man who told me that he has seen persecution before where some people who opposed Jesus came and burned down his house w…

The Joy of Ministering to Kids

Greetings from North India. Let me start of by saying the Lord is faithful. The reason I say this is first He is faithful, and he will always be, and secondly, he has opened a new opportunity for us to minister to kids.
There is a school that is located near the church.Some of our kids from the children’s home that the church runs go there to study. As a staff of the church I go to the office from time to time to pay the kids school fees. One day I met the principal of the school to talk about giving a discount on fees. He was asking about what I do and I told him that I lead worship at the church and so on. He and the vice principal looked at each other and they told me that they were willing to have me come and teach music to the kids in the school.
I was not expecting that. So we talked about how we can get it done. They told me to come on a Tuesday morning with the worship team and sing some songs with the whole team so that the kids can see and sign up for what instrument the…
