Dear e-pray friends, I thought about you a lot this week… we have been studying the 1st chapter of Philippians and Paul’s prayer is our prayer!

We are so grateful for all of you!! :) :) I talked with John today and he asked for us to be praying for the situation in our state of Andhra Pradesh. People all across the state are still very upset about the decision that was made to divide into 2 separate states. Everything in our area has basically shut down and there has been much violence on the streets. Many Pastors in the city have joined together for fasting & prayer, for peace and for protection during the protests, and for a resolution.
Although John has not been able to accomplish any paperwork on the land sale or teacher training school, due to the government strikes, he has continued to enjoy all the time he has been able to spend with the Pastors from all of our different areas of ministry. Please join us as we praise the Lord for the 3 church buildings that are in the process of being built, for a new house church that was started recently by Pastor John and has been growing, & for the new people coming to take part in the Bible lessons being taught in Pastor Eleesha’s church. :)
One more really big prayer request is for John as he makes a trip this month to Sierra Leone in Africa. He will be traveling with a few other men from India and meeting some friends of ours there who are from SL. They will be looking into different ways that we may be able to partner with them to bring help to our village people and to provide for some basic needs of villages in SL. We do not know what the Lord is up to yet, but He has provided many clear indications that this is something that we should explore. Please pray for health & protection as they travel, good connections, and clear direction as they are there.
