India - Madhya Pradesh


Dear Beloved in Christ,

Greetings in mighty name of Jesus name. Thanks for your prayer and valuable support toward the ministry in Shahdol.

We are continuing to focus our ministry on adult literacy, children’s ministry, village outreach and Bible school, self-help, and tree planting.  We are happy to see the good results in the ministry field as the name of our Lord is proclaimed. Last month the great Hindu pilgrimage called Kumbh came through our area and we had the opportunity to minister to numerous people. Additionally, I was called to teach and preach in 51st District of Madhya Pradesh over a period of 5 days. We had a beautiful time of fellowship and developed a new strategy to reach people in our state. 

We are thankful for your prayers and support,

Rev. S.K. Samuel
