Pastors in India
by Jeanice McDade
One of our favorite places to minister is at our main Church in India. These people really love the Lord and they want everyone to know it. Pastors P and D are biological, as well as spiritual brothers. These Pastors work with a number of local Churches, as well as Pastoring their own Church. They currently oversee and help to edify 22 other Pastors.
These brothers were instrumental in seeing that our previous work of distributing 5,000 Telugu Bibles was carried out. They took good care of the Word of God and helped us see to it that all of the Bibles were in needy hands.
One of the most interesting ministries of ECM is the Church at the leper colony. Pastor P tends to the spiritual and physical needs of the infirmed there. He explains that some do not realize how very difficult it is on these people. They are outcast from society, even denying their uninfected children the right to go to school. These people suffer greatly, especially in the heat. The noses and hands and feet are literally eaten away from this disease. It is impossible for many of those suffering from this disease to feed themselves or to take care of their personal needs; they often have open wounds, especially to their hands and feet and they cannot walk or get around in any manner without a great deal of pain. Many use their bottoms and elbows to scoot from place to place. We were blessed to be able to minister to and worship with these people. Please remember to pray for our suffering brothers and sisters and those who care for them.
In addition to their leper and Church ministries, these men have conducted children’s crusades and women’s meetings. They encourage one another as well as other ministries by conducting Pastor’s meetings and fasting prayers. Much attention is given to diligent prayer and we are thankful for such strength, through Christ, as these brothers understand and undertake spiritual warfare.
God bless these who trust God for all their needs and go about their Father’s business at the direction of the Holy Spirit alone.
