Dearly Beloved in Christ
Grace and Peace be abundant on you from God our Father through our Lord Jesus Christ !!
This month and the one prior have been able to spend time reflecting on our personal lives and on the calling God has on both of our lives.
It has been good time of fellowship with the family as well as there weren’t any travels planned for ministry.
There is a grace that empowers to overcome when in the ministry and then there is a grace that can be found only in rest and in relationships that God has put us amidst. You can’t find the one in the other and one must start walking in each of these realms to receive that grace.
During this time God has given great authority for ministry at home in Chennai. For a few weeks continuously God has taken me into the realms of authority determined for revival and breakthrough in India. I have been able to prophesy with great clarity knowing that i’m confronting principalities and powers bringing in changes in the spiritual realms.
Not only that there has been great grace to speak into the atmosphere life and transform it.
Now the thing about this is ; you don’t stay in these realms for long and so when you get back to where you are, you face the realities of what you have confronted…:).
But thanks be to God who always leads us into triumph through Jesus Christ our Lord.
It has been a learning experience ; esp to be careful with the words i speak at other times.
If any of you feel led, do support us in this area in prayer.
Roja is doing fine by the grace of God. We see that God has greater purposes in store for us. He is preparing us accordingly. Our prayer has been to understand His ways the best possible and yield to it ( even if we don’t understand it at times)!
Amy has grown up to be a beautiful teenager ; 15 now. She has the wisdom of God . In her 10th grade govt exams this year she got 95 percent overall but was crying the whole day because she thought it was too low..:) ( She had prepared for the exams without any help such as tutions ).
A good problem to have!! As a child we used to speak blessings over her as parents and speak life into her and we are seeing its fruit years later.
Hadassah is 10 years old and God has given her so many talents including playing the Casio by ear. She can also sing ; almost do anything she puts her heart into ..:) . We are grateful to God for our two daughters .
Then our beloved son Keith. He is three and not a man of many words ..:)). He started talking a bit late but is making good progress now.
We want our kids to encounter God in powerful ways. This generation is in the depths of sin and deception like no other (probably) and our children need to know God in such a way that they can bring light and complete deliverance to this generation.
As God once brought to mind this truth that He is the I AM and i can’t bring complete deliverance to this generation with a revelation of who HE was in the past but that i should get to know Him as He intends to reveal Himself currently .
Pray for our kids ; not just our kids but that this generation encounter God as He intends to reveal Himself today in a world filled with cynicism, unbelief, darkness and sin.
We must see God in His glory and power if we are to redeem this generation for Christ for then their foundations will rest firm as the world hurls itself into darkness.
On a general note thank for your continual support and prayers for our Bible School. The students have arrived and we’ve already finished a month of classes. God has been touching many of them in powerful ways ( pics of students from new States).
Also ; we are about to start a course specifically designed for missionaries. It is to equip them to do ministry even more efficiently.
For sometime now in travelling around ; I have seen missionaries who are finding it difficult to do ministry and some who are struggling in some area. We do advise them when we are there (which is quite short) but i felt that it was not sufficient.
After thought on this , decided that they needed further equipping. Therefore we are starting a special 3 month course for them from September 2nd week which would strengthen them and make them effective again in ministry.
God has given the heart not to loose anyone.. :). Therefore we are doing this. Praying for God’s wisdom in this regard.
Do have this in your prayers also! Shalom.
In His Grace
