The end of the gospel meetings

Message from Lynn Leitch

Today, we witnessed 40 baptisms in the Krishna River! This was a little different from the ABC tank, with boats, buffalo and fishermen in the background!! The sun was just going down and crowds gathered to watch. What a public witness!

Tonight was the final night of the gospel meetings. Jason shared his testimony and there were 3 sermons as usual. Hundreds of people heard and responded to the message!

Tomorrow, we will attend the Repalle church… a 3-4 hour service! Hopefully, we will be able to speak to you in person during your morning service??

Please continue to pray for the people who have become Christians. This is not an easy decision in this culture. Pray that there will be support around them and that they will see growth in their lives.

Pray also for the children here… such beautiful kids who have the biggest smiles and welcoming hearts. We are loving spending time with them! Pray that they will see God’s love through us. We certainly see it in some of them.

Pray for 10th class (14 years old) as they are studying for a big exam on 27 March. They are constantly studying in the playground and ask for prayer as you pass them.

Pray for those who have received treatment and medication in the clinic. Pray that they will continue to get well and that our input will make a difference to them.

Another busy day

Message from Lynn Leitch

We had a very busy day in the clinic, seeing 120 children and taking out 75 teeth as well as treating scabies, infected eyes and various other ailments. It’s difficult to see kids in pain but a real blessing to see them a few hours after treatment, in the playground, telling you how much better they feel!

Tonight is the first night of the gospel meetings and hundreds have gathered to hear the message. It’s humbling to see people seated on the ground, for hours, eager to hear God’s word!

Please pray for continued energy for the clinic team as the week goes on. Pray especially for the people who will become Christians this week. This will be difficult for many who are from a Hindu background. Pray also for the pastors as they prepare and preach every afternoon and evening for the next 3 days. Pray that God would use them in a powerful way and that the local police will not be offended by their presence.
