||Andaman Nicobar Islands
by Admin 1
Dear loving Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,
We convey our warm greetings from Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
We joyfully and thankfully remember the days of the past weeks in which we enjoyed the wonderful care of our Lord. We are having tension in all areas but we trust in the Lord and wait upon His leading in our life.
The Assembly gathering here is going-on with new attendees. At the same time there are challenges. Most of our members are from non Christian background. As you know that India is under the influence of Hindu religious groups, they trying to pressure the believers in different ways. So far they are strong in their faith and defend themselves. Recently this group offered Rs. 5,00,000 to one of our financially ailing family but they refused to receive their offer. We notice that my family and the church building are under their observation but we strongly believe that these people who are against of the gospel cannot touch us unless and until our Lord permits. Please stand with us in prayers.
Our childrenâ€™s (Paul and Thomas) board examination starts from 2 March 2015. Please remember them in your prayers as we are having education challenges in these Islands
Children Bible Clubs
Thank you for the active prayers for the Children Bible Clubs in different areas of these Islands. We would like to say that the attendance of the children is decreasing due to the pressure of anti gospel people. At Beodnabad most of our children are forcibly joined in RSS( a Hindu fanatic organization) by influencing their parents. This children respects us but not able to say anything to their parents in this regard.
At Bambooflat , some parent are not sending their children for the club in these days as we gather in the house of Bro.Lawrence where recently his daughter Priyanka died. Around 60 -70 children attends every Friday. We were having more than 100 children in the CBC. Please pray for the children and their parents.
We are burdened to focus on the senior children in our Children Bible Clubs, we started the youth Bible study and which is going on nicely. Please pray for these youth that they may stand for the Lord.
Mainland Word ministry
Lord allowed me to be for a few meetings at mainland and HE blessed me toi have word ministry fruitful. The word ministry at South Tamilnadu Believers Camp at Coutrallum, had 1200 people attended. Lord used me to share on the topic â€œHarden not your heartâ€ . Praise God that many informed that these messages touched them and they have taken good decision. God gave me the flency in language to speak in Tamil language. All glory to God alone.
Please pray for the co-workers. We had Bro.P.Phinehas was with us near about a month. He had an eye operation and Lord helped him to have successful surgery. Now Bro. Selvakumar is with us and he will be here for about a week. Please pray for all co- workers in the Lord.
Praise God and thanks to
We thank you for the entire one who stood with us for the last 25 years of service in these Islands. We believe that our Lord used you all to be a support for us and we would like to mention that if anything we see here success is just because of the joint effort of all of us. Praise be to God who give us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

New attendees may fully surrender themselves to the Lord and obey the Lord in baptism.
