Pastor Denny Moses reports as follows on behalf of the Khagaria outreach team…
“Greetings to you in the name of Jesus Christ who was, who is and who is to come. We are very glad and privileged to express the marvelous deeds of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. After working for 14 yrs in God’s Kingdom in the Bihar, Khagaria field the Almighty helped us to build and dedicate two churches on our own land. Previously the churches were held under the trees, in schools, in village government offices or believers’ home but by prayer and support we have been able to build the churches. We thank God.
In that place we started Ministry in 2007 – by Pr. Gabriel. It was quite difficult to bring the people to God’s vineyards because the people were uneducated and they were in foolish belief. But with prayer support we saw the work of God. Many people started believing Jesus but there were no proper place for the Sunday services. They were held in believers’ houses, pastor’s house, schools, and under the trees. In 2008 our Advent Christian church of Sembakkam, Chennai offered money to buy land in that place. We bought the land in Feb 2008. It was registered by former Bishop Rev. Paul Arul Doss. Later in that place we made small tent for the worship but due to rain and heavy wind often it collapsed. Three times we rebuild that and the believers and pastors were praying for the pukka (proper) building for the worship. In 2012 our Advent Christian church of Sembakkam, Chennai believer and former ACCI secretary Mr. Satya Muller offered Rs. 6,00,000/- to build the church in memory of his late father Mr. Gunasekaran. With that money and some other offerings we constructed a 40 X 25 feet – 1000 sq.ft building. It was dedicated by our Bishop Dr. Rt. Rev. Moses Barnabas on 15/3/14.
In this place ministry started in the year 2003. The workers and members faced lots of problems to bring the church here. The problems were caused by the village head man, and local “rowdies”. (thugs) Because of these people strong believers also were disturbed – they lost their faith and didn’t come to church for several days, but by the prayer support we started worship services. Here also there was no place. Worship was held in schools, under the trees, on the Government office veranda. In 2008 our Mission purchased land from the same church believer and pastor – the Santosh family. In 2010 we constructed the Pastor’s residence and in November 2011 we started construction work for the church. With prayers and support we finished and our Mission Bishop Dr. Rt. Rev. Moses Barnabas dedicated the church on 16/03/2014.

In this great vacation our bishop brought his family members and Conference Pastors Rev. Simeon, Rev. Jeeva Kiruban andEvg. Kanchi Lazarus. On that day many non- Christian people attended the meeting to hear God’s Word. Evg. Kanchi Lazarus delivered the Gospel with his testimony. It touched many people’s life. In that meeting we shared the Gospel by skit too.

May God bless you all.”
