Please continue to pray for the Advent Christian Conference of India’s outreach in Khagaria, in the State of Bihar. This outreach is led by Pastor Paul Sundar Raj (pictured at right) and his team, which now consists of 19 pastors ministering to three thousand members in 20 churches, and 55 teachers (including 31 missionary teachers) and 15 non-teaching staff providing education to one thousand six hundred children at St Xavier’s English Medium High School.
Please pray especially for the provision of funds to complete the new school premises
to replace the crowded, rented facilities which the school presently occupies.
21 classrooms and facilities on the ground floor and 6 classrooms on the 1st floor have been completed but there are still 12 classrooms and an assembly hall/chapel to be completed on the 1st floor. The cost to complete these is approximately 46 lakhs (4.6million) rupees which is about NZ$299,000 at today’s exchange rate. The new premises cannot be used until all the facilities are completed. Construction is halted at present because funds are not available.
Communications officer Pastor Denny Moses asks us to thank and praise the Lord for the Annual Prayer & Revival camp which was held during October. Visiting speakers Rev Robert Ronald and Evangelist Karthick Gamaliel shared the Word of God and it was a very blessed time for all the pastors, missionaries, believers and youth. As a result of this gathering 25 new believers were baptized in the branch churches.
