Agape Bihar May Update
Category : India
Exciting news from Victor that so many people are hearing the gospel and accepting Jesus as their one and only Savior, that Victor and the other pastors are having a hard time keeping up with the baptisms and training! That is a great problem to have!! So many of the new believers say that now that they know the Truth, they have to tell others. They are begging for training so that they can become evangelists themselves. They say that they will work and raise the money to cover their own evangelism costs, if they can just be trained to take the gospel message to others. Wow! I wish we had that same problem here in the US!
The women are sewing the new women’s monthly necessity kits as quickly as they receive materials to make more. With each sharing of a kit, comes sharing of the gospel message as well. Women are being saved eternally and blessed physically. What an awesome God we serve!
Construction is underway for one of the three houses that were destroyed during last year’s monsoon. We have financing for two of these homes, praise Jesus, and are continuing to pray for the last $1000 for the last house. Hopefully all three will be completed before August which is the next monsoon season.
We are blessed to have the opportunity to bring “Shoes that grow with you” on our next trip. These shoes are made of top quality materials and adjust up to 5 sizes and will last appoximately 5 years! These shoes are $15 a pair if you would like to purchase a pair for a child in India. We will be providing the first 18 pairs to our Aimee’s Kids.
We also have been blessed to find out that a local lady in the Myrtle Beach area makes dresses for children in third world countries out of pillow cases and t-shirts. We will be taking donations of new or used, unsoiled and not torn pillowcases and 100% cotton t-shirts for these dresses. If you would like to donate either of these items, please bring them to Cindy, Becky, or Peggy.
Our other immediate needs are as follows:
Victor’s family – additional $200 per month. Currently they eat rice 3 meals per day, bread and a vegetable once, and chicken on Saturdays. We would like to keep them well nourished with fruits and meat every day!
Aimee’s Kids – additional $200 per month at least. Their diet is about the same as Victor’s family.
Sewing Seeds of Hope – additional $200 per month. The more funding they have to buy materials, the more kits they can distribute free and also share the gospel each time.
Agape Bihar – $100 for a Lifestream. This device brings up a wifi connection and links presenting the Jesus film and the Bible in Hindi to any smart phone in the vicinity of this unit when it is activated.
Thank you for all who support Agape Bihar through your faithful prayers and through your giving. For those who give monthly, please have your donations in by Sunday, May 27. May the Lord continue to bring many souls in Bihar into His Kingdom!
Blessings in Christ,
