October Agape Bihar Update
Category : India
We are thankful to God to share with you that Kevin and the backpack with the Je film made it safely to India! Victor was so excited for this incredible resource that the Lord had provided to them that he barely slept after watching it! Last night was the first day of the pastor training conference. Kevin and Victor showed the film to the 20 attending pastors and taught them how to set it all up. This will greatly increase the sharing of the gospel to the 85% plus illiterate people in Bihar! Thank you to our donor and to World Mission for providing this incredible tool!
Over the next few days, Kevin will continue to teach lessons including the attributes of God, the Trinity and of the special creation of Adam. We are excited for this training opportunity the Lord has given Kevin and for the opportunity to encourage the pastors and evangelists of Agape Bihar. Thank you to all of you who have helped make this a reality! Please pray that their sessions will be Spirit lead, for strength, renewal, growth and passion, and for protection from the enemy.
We have almost completed our 2nd and 3rd wells in Bihar. Drilling was delayed because of the flooding. But we are in the process now of getting water samples and determining the best filtration systems if they are needed. Thank you to Zoe Waters for their great knowledge and funding of these life giving wells!
The church building in Pastor Chhotlal’s village continues to be built brick by brick as the Lord provides the funding. We are thankful for His faithfulness to bring donations each month! Donations can be marked Agape Bihar.
We are still in need of sponsors to support Victor and his family. We are asking for at least $325 to add to the $225 he currently is receiving. Victor has the incredible opportunity of travelling to Calcutta every couple of months to record Bible lessons in his native dialect to be aired over the radio. This adds to his monthly living expenses. Donations may be marked Kumar Family.
We are planning to return as a team to India next March. Please pray for us as we prepare and continue to seek the Lord’s will in all aspects of this next trip.
Thank you to all of you that pray and give financially to the work of Agape Bihar! Please have November donations in by October 29. May God bless you richly for your willingness to partner with our brothers and sisters in India.
Blessings in Christ,
