Pastoral Assistants - India
* DBI once again participated in the World Book Fair in January with a goal of sharing the Good News with 100,000 people. The Lord graciously enabled them to reach the target through the distribution of tracts, selling of Bibles and Bible based books.
* Praise God that the annual medical camp, as part of the vision of Helping the Poor and reaching out with the love of Christ, was held in all the 7 centres of DBI. Staff, students and neighbours were screened and provided medicines. The gospel was shared with people from non-Christian background. Please pray for the advance of the gospel, that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honoured. Wherever there are gospel opportunities there is also opposition, so please pray earnestly that our Indian brothers and sisters might know the Lord's courage and strength and protection.
* Pray for the 20 men supported by Parkside as they travel throughout Northern India preaching and teaching the gospel. Pray that God will protect them and provide many opportunities for David, Mani, Amar, Benjamin, Gabriel, Kalap, Suresh, Vinay, Desh, Ram, Anil, Dilip, Kamlesh, Rajendra, James, Shiv, Rajesh, Dinesh, Bhim and Sanjay to share Christ.
* Pray for God’s wisdom and guidance for Isaac Shaw and the rest of the DBI leadership team of Ramrajh, Abdul, Numgail, Abwan and Yogatah as they oversee the ministry.
