This week in India 9-12-20

I’m excited to share with you our week in India! School classes and Sunday services. Our new normal in our villages. We can now hold limited Sunday services, at multiple locations in groups that are already quarantined together. It’s a small beginning to return to worshipping and fellowshipping together.

Quick links to the other parts this week:

School Classes

Because our villages don’t have internet access or computers, our volunteers have become teachers! We’ve all had to pivot and adapt as the year continues and I’m so grateful for such wonderful volunteers who are willing to do whatever it takes to help our kids.

Here’s a peek into our school classes last week

Our Sunday Service

We’re so grateful to have services again! We missed this greatly, and so did our kids.

Healthy babies!

Thank you Jesus, for these answers to prayer. Baby Sarah and baby Rebecca are all doing well.

Groceries for each family

We were able to get bags of produce for each family we serve and hand them out during our service!

Look who is growing!

Little Joel and his sister Esther are doing so well. They are growing and eating well. Look at them! So precious.

Memory verses

The kids love to jump up and recite the verses they’ve memorized. And while there is a bit of competition in it, they’re also so supportive of each other, offering hints and prompts to each other when one forgets.

Someone recently asked me how we run the ministry, and without hesitation or really considering, I replied, prayer. We don’t do anything without it. And we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without it! We pray in groups and one on one with the Lord. We’re grateful for all of you who pray for us!

At the villages

As the area starts to ease restrictions, we’re helping our people restart their businesses too! We were able to help them get restocked in items to sell in the markets and supplies and tools for those who know appliance repair. Once the supplies were purchased, we gathered together to pray over them and their businesses. Please pray with us!

We’re excited for them to get their businesses up and running again. Please pray with us for safety and protection during this time, as well as for their businesses to prosper.

Thank you for your love, and your prayers for those we serve around the world! It’s absolutely amazing what happens when we come together and follow the Lord’s leading. I’m beyond grateful for you all!
