Prayers for India: Matthew 16:13-20
God, we thank you that you are building your church around the globe. Today, we pray particularly for the Church of North India and the Church of South India. We thank you for their ministries of sharing the Good News of who Jesus is and how he is providing healing and wholeness. We thank you for the ministry of the Christian Hospital of Mungeli and the Henry family who is serving there on our behalf as missionaries. Bless them and the staff of the hospital so that they can continue to be a beacon of light in that part of rural India. Amen
Mission Stewardship Moment from India:
The Christian Hospital of Mungeli is growing steadily as we have many projects which are progressing simultaneously. We just had an inspection by the Indian Nursing Council which was an exciting time of cleaning up and getting our act together. We hope to be able to start by taking a class of 30 nursing students this year. We are also working away at getting the cancer centre finished and all it needs now is a roof. The machine, which is a grant by the Indian Government, is going to be sent over in about two weeks. We are also awaiting the arrival of a 40 foot container from friends in Fresno, California. This is of hospital supplies and sent with love from many who volunteer their time and efforts.
The English Medium School too is growing as we go ahead with construction. We had to stop admissions at a little over 500 this year but hope to be able to move to a 1000 kids as we get the new building built. All this work is possible by the help and support of all that is done though prayers and support of all of you there. It is indeed an honor to be sent by you and supported by you so that we together can praise God and share the Love of Christ with many who are marginalized and needy in this backward region of India.
