Preaching in Uttar Pradesh

Posted by Jeffrey Dsouza on October 22, 2015 at 4:55 AM Comments comments (0)

One young man who heard the gospel through us made a decision to believe Christ, and started following...Then came the issue of his marriage. Since He is from Uttar Pradesh, he went to his village to have a look at the proposal made to him. Along with that, He also started sharing Christ and praying for those who were sick and oppressed by demons. God stood with him and manifested His power. A number of people repented and accepted Jesus, because they got healed or delivered from oppression. He keeps in touch with them via phone.

There were those who threatened him as well, but undaunted by the threats, he prayed and continued preaching and praying. God caused him to triumph with boldness and change of heart in the persecutors.

My wife and I are distributing tracts in our locality. The response has not been very good. Help in prayer for fruit in our labours.

One of our house church members was able to bring a Maharashtrian woman and her daughter to church.

Visit to Secunderabad

Posted by Jeffrey Dsouza on September 5, 2014 at 12:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Pastor was invited to Secunderabad by a pastor friend. By the help of the Lord the local pastor has collected some people for Jesus. People in Secunderabad speak mainly Telugu, so it was difficult to communicate with people there. Since Pastor does not know Telugu, He had to speak in Hindi. This was translated by the local Pastor into Telugu.

One of the members, had me stay in his house. He was so hospitable. God bless him abundantly.

Pastor had opportunity from the first day to preach and teach the word to small groups of people. The local pastor also had me visit his parents home 65 K.m. away from where we were staying. It was inside one of the villages in Medak District. We had to sleep outside where there were so many mosquitoes. God brought us through the night.

Messages taught was  on the new covenant, faith, and the church.

Man from Uttar Pradesh receives the word

One day as Jeffrey visited the flour mill in the neighborhood, out of his mouth came the statement "have you found the truth" to which came the reply that he has been wanting to know. Then Jeffrey took up the opportunity to give him the gospel and now continues to regularly meet him to teach him more
