“For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you”. Isaiah 54:10
The country is presently witnessing a rapid growth in number of Covid-19 cases, we have crossed over 7.5 lakhs cases in the country. According to Times Now “Covid cases in India rose by 26,500 on Thursday, setting a daily record. Total Coronavirus cases in India is now 7,93,802 and 21,604 people have died due to the virus.

The Exodus - India needs your Prayers!

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away” - Revelation 21:4

The month of May was so tough for each one of us. The globe is witnessing a mass death due to the pandemic and we trust the Lord that He will help us to withstand the crisis and this will also pass away.
In India, Covid – 19 pandemic brought a mass exodus of migrants back to their own rural village. With most modes of transport shutdown many have been forced to walk hundreds of kilometers with their children to reach their homes. The migrants with their small children are walking back home without food and water.
Every day a new story emerges, a single migrant mother travelling from Gujarat to Orissa was found dead in a railway station, where two of her children playing around her not knowing she is already dead. A girl rode her bicycle for over 1400 kms to bring her disabled fath…

Unexpected Guest

Image
For the past two months, we have an unexpected guest visiting our globe teaching some important life lessons by breaking our life routines, masking our dreams and leaving deep cracks in our economy. The guest is taking us through a difficult path but through these dark hours we as humans quickly learn to embrace the beauty of the broken which enables us to live free in midst of the crisis.
We believe this global pandemic is teaching us something; yes it is scary, dark and intense moments for some losing their dear ones, for some starvation, for some unemployment, for some fear of sickness etc.
As we were reminded of Psalms 139: 8 – 12 “If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. Even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. Even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.”
God alone helping us to realize “deep within the depth of the earth, where no one ca…

Light at the end of the Tunnel

The month of March started normally as any other month but due to the rise of the Covid cases led to shut down for all the ministry activities.
Covid-19 pandemic has brought the entire nation to a halt. “Stay Home & Stay Safe” is what we have been hearing and following for past 15 days. We are under lock down and presently going through a high rate of Covid Cases rising up in the country.
Last month blog I wrote about “we realizing all of life’s daily challenges are a new opportunity to see His hand over our lives. Most of us fail to see how God wants to use problems for good in our lives. We react quickly and foolishly rather than pausing to consider what benefit they might bring. Throughout the month, we remembered God is with us and he has not forgotten us”. As this month, we experienced His faithfulness in each and every step of our lives and ministry.
It is important, we stay safe, stay informed and stay indoors but it is also our duty to inform people around to stay safe esp…

Overcoming Challenges

Image
The month of February 2020, we faced various challenges in ministry. We realized all of life’s daily challenges are a new opportunity to see His hand over our lives. Most of us fail to see how God wants to use problems for good in our lives. We react quickly and foolishly rather than pausing to consider what benefit they might bring. Throughout the month, we remembered God is with us and he has not forgotten us.

An Unusual Celebration of a deity
The village where we work with children (Little Transformers Club); celebrated a local village festival where thousands of devotees from the other villages converge on the day of Maha Shivratri to worship the deity (goddesses). The festival is organized for 10 days.
The festival is particularly known for its very intriguing body accessorization. The act is called ‘Kaliakam’, where kids, men and women paint their faces and adorn outfits that replicate the goddess. Devotees pierce lemons on their chest, knifes in their mouth, they walk on hot fire…

Laced with Grace

The month of January 2020 was a time of preparation and planning for the ministries in our village. Though at different stages it was challenging time, Jesus helped us to stay focused in Him and overcome all the difficulties through prayer. We thank you all for praying and supporting us in this mission journey.
During our Christmas Program, the schools declared vacation for the children. Hence, we let the children go and enjoy their vacation with their parents and relatives. Most of the children visited their native places and spent time with their parents and family.
During this vacation, we as a team could plan and set out small curriculum for the next few months. We spent time together preparing study chart, scrap books, study materials and game activities.
We reopened our Children Transformers Club in the second week of the January 2020. The children were so excited to come back and share with us interesting stories that happened during their vacation. It was a great time to see thei…
