Spotlight on Missions
Our Evangelical Free Church Reach Global Missionaries from far away Kolkata, India send Greetings and Appreciation to our Church Family. Gus and Shikha Peters along with their two sons Micah & Nathan give a Ministry Update, Praises and Prayer Requests!
The Bible Pathways - May 20-22, 2019: We had our 5th Workshop on the Bible Pathways. We did the Gospel of Mark. The Bible Pathways is a tool that we use to help our Church Planters interpret the Scriptures correctly as they prepare to preach the Word of God.
VBS - May 27-31, 2019: Due to some safety concerns we call it Summer Camp. We had approximately 450 children attend this. Our theme for this year was NEW LIFE... our team shared stories on Zacchaeus and the Ethiopian eunuch. They taught them scripture verses and also had the kids do some craft. We also shared with them the importance of Water Baptism.
Church Planter - Rakesh Gayen. About 10 days ago one of our Church planters was diagnosed with Colon Cancer. He is only 27 years old. The Doctors have advised him to undergo a surgery immediately. We are praying and trusting God to provide for this. I am attaching a picture of Pastor Rakesh. We would be most grateful for your prayers.
Our family Update:
Micah: Our younger son Micah has completed his second year of College and is on a month's vacation. During this time he will be helping in our ministry taking pictures of all the sponsored children.
Nathan: Has completed the first year of Master's Degree in Renewable Energy Engineering and will be starting a two months internship program at Tata Power Solar in the city of Bangalore.
Shikha: It has been almost 7 years since we first applied for Shikha's Indian Citizenship. This past week we received the good news that it has been granted and we need to collect the Citizenship Certificate. Praise God for this answer to prayer.
Our sincere appreciation to the Church for praying for us. When ministry and life become so difficult we remind ourselves that there are people praying for us. Thank you also for supporting us financially. We are blessed! May Jesus shower you with His blessings!
