Shalom to you all my Dear Loving Family in Yeshua…
Dear Brethren, When the Word of God is preached, the Holy Spirit works in the hearts and lives of people, convicting them of their sin and leading them to repentance. As this number increases, the people themselves feel the need to gather at regular times for worship and listening to the Word. This happens over a period of time. Normally the believers meet in the missionaries home. Later it may move to a believer’s home. This is how we are continuing our bible studies in Tuesday and Thursday at Rajupalem and Rajaraopeta.
The worship group may initially consist of our missionaries and one or two believers. The rest of the people may be just seekers or interested people. It is wonderful to see the numbers grow. First, we have individual believers. Then we progress to whole families and then the families bring their relatives to the Lord. This is how the worshipping group grows until it finally becomes a full-fledged church.
Ministry to the children
YESHUA said, “Let the children come to me and forbid them not…” Children are the pillars of tomorrow. How we teach them today will be seen in how they live tomorrow. Our missionaries have recognized this and therefore are involved in a special ministry to children. “I look at these children as MY children,” declared one of our missionaries. Further we have discovered that they way to a man’s heart are through his children. Our ministry to parents is often through their own children.
One of the primary ways of reaching out to children is through the SABBATH SCHOOL this is proven to be a powerful way of generating an interest in Yahweh’s Word besides delving into the lives of these little ones. And little ones learn very fast…much faster than their parents. Little ones also see the light of the Gospel much faster and respond to Yeshua’s love. Another way is through free tuitions. These tuition classes begin with prayer and a time of singing before taking up History, Geography, English and Mathematics! This was made possible through your generosity and earnest prayers to build the worship center where without any obstacles we could be able to run the Sabbath School programs as it is not possible in the previous days in rented homes.
Blessed be the God of Abraham the most high, possessor of heaven and earth shall guard you in His Peace. Thanking you all.
With Love & Hope
