Ministry trip to Singapore, Malaysia & Thailand I had a blessed ministry with praise evangelical church with Ps K. Stephen at Singapore . He is a wonderful man of god having powerful ministry . I really enjoyed their ministry and I encouraged the people with Gods word. My friend David & Elizabeth Immagie hosted me well. In Malaysia I preached 3 days in Jesus loves church at Klang where Pr.

It was a powerful conference and the pastors were delivered from stress and burdens. Praise be to God.

About 42 kids who are being benefited by our life center where gathered and Rev. Ellis blessed them with Chocolates and other Christmas gifts. Around 6 PM on the same day we distributed some new clothes and Christmas gifts to 10 aged widow women and 2 aged men on behalf of CFM. They were so happy and thankful. At 7 PM we had gospel meeting and around 35 people were gathered from K. Poondi village and also from a neighboring village called Karumankenaru. Pr. Caleb and Rev. Ellis preached the gospel and prayed for the people. At the end of the evening we served food for all the villagers and we had an amazing fellowship getting to know the people.

Urgent Prayer Need Brother John Suresh Babu has been a member of Church for past 10 years. He came from a strong Hindu background. He is the only Christian at home while his wife and children have chosen to remain as Hinduâ€™s. Due to this brother John faces a lot of opposition at home, but he is a great man of faith, strong for God and actively involved in our church. Last week unfortunately brother John experienced a severe heart attack and he was admitted in the hospital. He is now kept in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The doctors have told that he needs a bye pass surgery. So its time for us to keep brother John in our prayers. Let us pray for his healing and that God will see him through during the time of surgery. Also keep his wife and 2 children in his prayer and lets pray that they will see that our God is a faithful God.
