Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body,21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
May the assurance of Christ’s death and resurrection make our striving for his glory, a sure calling for us. Happy Resurrection Sunday!
Christmas was celebrated with our children from the Day care center and the college students by singing carols, participating in talent contests, and proclaiming the gospel in skits and song to unbelieving parents/ families at our annual Christmas program. We all enjoyed going house to house proclaiming Jesus’ birth in song.
To those of you who gave so generously towards the gifts for our children we want to say THANK YOU! They were given clothes, sweaters and stationery etc.. They were pleasantly surprised.
In January, we were able to have the Berean Conference attended by delegates from the neighboring states. Our speakers were from SWBTS, in Texas. Some of the highlights of the conference were in the interaction during the Q&A sessions, and the in-depth study of the Word in covering the various books of the Bible. Two days spent in Tikatpur were also well attended inspite of the rain.
The next major event on the calendar is graduation in April.
Our children have been doing well academically as well as spiritually. Some of them have written High School exams and others are getting ready for college. They are in need of help to make decisions for their future.
- For our nine graduating students who will be serving in their churches.
- For food and educational needs of our Day Care Centres.
- For support of Missionary kids: schooling and boarding fees.
- For scholarship for our Bible College Students
- For new students who prepare to come to study.
I am quite certain that there is not one ministry that you hear from these days that does not ask you to support them financially. Wish I could say we were any different. We need your help for survival for many of these people. Please do as the Lord leads.
Thank you for your support and prayers.
May God be your portion.
