Greetings From India

Greetings to you from the children in our Orphanage!  Because of your valuable prayer we have been able to house 10 more children and also build a room to house the children.  Our Orphanage is now complete with a bathroom.  These children receive excellent care from our Head Pastor and his wife who reside with and oversee them.   The Orphanage is in a good location next to the Church and close to family members of the Pastor and his wife, so they benefit from much reinforcement of values and Godly examples.  Our children also pray daily for their friends in the US (and elsewhere) and for the lost.  A servant’s heart is being cultivated in these children as they not only pray for others but do “good deeds”.  This year, as part of the Christmas celebration, our children are making or cooking something to bless others.  This is a wonderful way to witness about Christ as they share their gifts with others.  It is also a great way for the children to be able to give and to be involved in an outreach.

1 Timothy 4:11-12
Bells
“Command and teach these things.  Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”

Greetings to you from our Leper Colonies!  This year we are blessed to add a second location and a second leper colony to our outreach.  I often speak of this group of people because they bless my heart so.  I have worshiped with many of them for several years and, in spite of their poverty and physical condition, they are some of the richest and healthiest people I know.  It is a pleasure beyond words to be able to worship with a people so full of joy, clapping their disease-ridden stumps together as they praise our God.  If there were ever a people who truly looked past the natural state and into eternity, it is this group of people.

James 4:14
Bells
“Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”

Greetings to you from our Team of Pastors!  This year God has added more Pastors to our team and we now serve with a total of 42 Pastors in addition to our Head Pastor and his wife.  Despite extreme poverty, cyclones, risk and reality of beatings and other attempts to keep the Gospel of Christ from being spread, our Pastors are devoted and faithful.  Outreaches continue up in the forest area where it is dangerous to preach the gospel due to terrain, opposition from certain people groups, and wild animals.  We are so blessed to report to you that our Pastors continue to go to places where the Gospel has yet to be heard.  Our Pastors are prayerful and wise but strengthened and anointed by the Spirit of God, they continue to have open air meetings, ministry in several villages, ministry in the leper colonies and in Churches.  Our School of the Bible continues to flourish as these Pastors meet together for training, prayer, and fellowship. These Pastors spend every Friday in fasting prayer for the lost.  These Pastors suffer a great deal to be able to spend their lives reaching the lost and ministering to the Body of Christ.  We are honored and humbled by their love for God and their faithfulness to Him.

Isaiah 43:2
Bells
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”

Greetings to you from our Team of Intercessors!  This year we felt called to establish a separate team of prayer warriors to pray for the ministry in India as their focus.  This is a group separate and in addition to the Palal ministry of HGIM, who are called to pray for your individual requests and needs as well as the ministry of HGIM.  Even though donations have decreased (due to the economy) the ministry in India continues to grow.  We are blessed to be able to pray for you along with our Team of Intercessors, our Team of Pastors, the Lepers, the children at the Orphanage, our Palal Team and the other Volunteers at HGIM.

Jeremiah 3:33
Bells
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and
show thee great and mighty things,
which thou knowest not.”

A very loving and appreciative “Merry Christmas” to you from your Brothers and Sisters in India and from those who work alongside them, in whatever capacity.  May you be blessed with peace and love as you continue to find your joy in Him.

1 Corinthians 2:2-5
Bells
“For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling.
My message and my preaching were not
with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.”

May God bless you and your family this Christmas season and throughout the year!
