May the name of the Lord be glorified.
Greetings to you all in the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are so happy to witness what the Lord has done through us in His ministry. Last month God enabled us to do ministry in the place called Trivandrum. Here about 4 members along with me joined to do the work. First of all we went to a church to preach the word of God. There about 200 people gathered and heard the word of God. Holy Spirit inspired me to preach a particular message along with my testimony. So I was talking to the people to be united always with Christ. Along with that we shared how God taught us to grow in faith and how God blessed us in ministries. Hearing this people understood the value of the Gospel ministries.
After the meeting we announced the audience to go for outreach ministry in the evening. About 70 people accepted the invitation and prepared to go for outreach ministry in the villages. In the evening we entered into a sea shore village named Vizhinjam, where lot of drunkards doing fishing works. We distributed Gospel literatures and in one particular junction, Mrs. Sarojam Paulose shared the Gospel message through a Gospel chart. After the message a lady came forward for prayer and requested us for a miracle in her life. We prayed for her and left another village to distribute tracts. After this ministry, the church members of that church decided to go for gospel ministry on every Sunday evenings. Praise the Lord.
Then God enabled us to go to a city called Thiruvallur. A team of 3 members accompanied with me in this trip. On the way to this ministry we distributed Gospel booklets to many people. We reached the city on the next day. This particular day was announced as holiday for all the schools and colleges. So the local pastor arranged a meeting on this day and made lot of advertisements through Television, wall posts and bit notices about this meeting. Unexpectedly, this day was re announced as working day. The local church worried about the meeting and still prayed for the success. The meeting started in the morning. Surprisingly, about 500 people participated in this meeting and all the leaders wondered and praised the Lord Almighty. God helped me to share about the importance and emergency need of the Gospel
ministry. After the meeting we announced about the village Gospel ministry. About 100 people joined in this ministry with great enthusiasm. We explained the Gospel through a Gospel chart mentions about a human heart. Many people received the Gospel truth and believed in the Lord. Then we went to an important marriage function and then to a thanks giving meeting. God’s name was glorified in all these meetings.
On the next day God helped us to go another town named Dharapuram, where lot of anti Christian movements exist. Two days meeting was arranged here. We with the zeal of sharing Gospel went to do street ministry in the morning. Here the people have the community ego problem. Even then, lot of people heard the Gospel and the Lord protected us from all the anti Gospel troubles. Then we went to visit the Hindi speaking people and shared the Gospel with them through the Gospel chart. At the end we could see lot of people gathered in front of a tea shop. Using this opportunity we started explaining the Gospel chart. People have shown much interest in watching the chart. Few others looked with anger against us. God has protected us from all the evil and His name was greatly glorified.
The following day was arranged as Pastors family gathering and here about 200 pastors gathered with their family and worshipped the Lord. Here God enabled me to speak about sacrificial life as Jesus lived along with the ministry experiences the Lord led through. All the pastors and their family were encouraged through the word of God and gave glory to His name. After emphasizing the importance of Gospel, we announced the pastors for the evening outreach ministry. About 20 of them participated and distributed Gospel literatures in the surrounding villages. In the evening the meeting was arranged for all the believers. Powerful word of the Lord was preached along with the ministry experiences. People were encouraged and re dedicated their lives for the Lord.
The next day was Sunday and during the journey me and my wife Mrs. Sarojam Paulose was suffering from severe head ache. We prayed to the Lord and the Lord strengthened us to preach His word on Sunday. About 200 church members gathered for the worship service. In the beginning, Mrs. Sarojam Paulose shared her salvation experiences and following that God was speaking
through me His unchanging word to the people. All the believers were encouraged through the word of God and glorified the name of the Lord.
Kuttalam is one of the tourist places where from all over India people come here for entertainment. Here is a natural waterfalls, where people enjoys in taking bath. Near to this area, we were invited in a church where Pastor Paul Dinaharan is working. As per his invitation we as a team of 6 members went to his church. A 3days seminar was arranged and about 100 pastors working under an organisation gathered here to hear the word of God and for the fellowship. God helped me to share His word about quickening the preaching of the Gospel along with my 50 years ministry experiences. All of them were encouraged in doing ministry more effectively. On the next morning, we as a team went to the waterfalls area and distributed Gospel booklets to all the people. Every one accepted it with great interest.
In the first session of the next day, my third daughter Mrs. Sara Divakar shared the word of God from I Corinthians. God used her mightily and the people were blessed. Then in the second session God helped Mrs. Sarojam Paulose to share the word of God from Ezeikiel 36 and encouraged the pastors to be anointed and blessed. Next day is Sunday and we reached a place called Tirunelveli and participated in the worship service. There God helped me to preach the word about unity and oneness. Everyone was greatly blessed.
After sharing the importance of Gospel we invited people for the evening outreach. About 60 people gathered for this outreach and visited villages of 6 kilometres away from the church. While preaching the Gospel in a village with the chart, a lady came forward and invited us to her house. When we entered into her house, we could see 13 members living inside and one among them was bedridden. Using the opportunity we explained the Gospel truth through the chart to everyone and led them in salvation prayer. Then we prayed for the sick and encouraged everyone to live for the Lord almighty. Through this trip God has helped our team members to share His love with many people. Praise the Lord.
