Greetings in Jesus name! I'd like to take this opportunity to say a word of thanks for your generous support for the flood relief . . .
Your generous support for the “Flood Relief Project” has enabled us to serve 200 families both physically and spiritually along with dry food items such as rice, dal, cooking oil, chuda, sugar, tea powder, Guda, Colgate, brush, shampoo, soap, surf, biscuits, etc... All of these people feel comfort to live by having all these benefits.
Because of this project, we have safely established good relationships with many villages’ communities and reached them with the Gospel to lead them to Christ. Due to this ministry, many souls are being saved and a good number of churches are being established.
Through this project, the Gospel has reached more than 3000 people and 163 people opened their hearts and received Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour -- and 72 have been baptized . ..
