Letters from Brethren

Letters / Emails / Text Messages

 
 
BINOI ABRAHAM SAMUEL Sharjah writes :  
The 11th Teens Camp took place here at the Union Church, Sharjah from 29th march to the 1st of April. Children from all over the Emirates attended the same. The children were blessed with godly leaders who counselled them with the word of God.
 
Bro. Ashish Sam, Delhi spoke on the theme watch yourselves. He spoke about how as teen one should watch themselves in purity, with the word of God, and for the glory of God.
Bro. Mathew Paul, Coimbatore also spoke on the subject of prayer. He had challenged the youth to be a group of people who treasure Christ over anything/anyone in life. He emphasized on desiring God at an early age.
Bro. Rejoy Sam, Kuwait also exposed godly counsel to the teens. In his first session, he emphasized on modesty in clothing. During the second session, he challenged the youth for the need of taking a stand for the Lord before the world by obeying the Lord in the waters of baptism. The Lord graciously worked during his second session and enabled 4 of the teens to take decisions concerning baptism.
 
The Pre-Teens were also blessed similarly.
Bro. Joel Abraham, Sharjah helped them understand that they needed to know that they had a PACK from God and that the PACK consisted of knowing (a) Purpose of Life, (b) Attitude, (c) Character, and (d) Keys to a Fruitful Life
The children went back to their homes blessed. They were blessed both with the word of God and with the fellowship of believers.
As a church, we bless the Lord for having helped us through the camp. Because of His steadfast love we never felt we were alone. He continued to remind us every day that He was with us. We saw 15 of our children turn to the Lord for salvation. We rejoice in this matter. We thank God that He chose to use this ministry to touch the hearts of the youth.
We thank all those who prayed for us. We covet your continual prayers as we seek to follow-up with those who had attended the camp. Click on 11th TEENS CAMP, UAE to watch the Photos.

NEW MINISTRIES AT ERNAKULAM DISTRICT
1. Ponginchuvadu tribal colony is a forest area in Ernakulum district under Vengoor panchayat. Its a dangerous 18 km travelling from Vadattupara, Bhoothathankettu dam with dangerous wild animals. It is impossible to go there by walk. We can use only jeep for travelling there. For three and half year we continually prayed for starting a ministry there. As a result God helped me to reach there with Evangelist P.K Joy. Almost 450 persons are living there within 106 families. They are all from ‘malayan’ division. Most of them are highly drug addicts but they are loving in nature. Most of them has farms. They collect spices, fruits and sell it outside. These are their family income. There are many unfavorable conditions from the forest securities and some peoples in this area. We are requesting your prayers for this ministries

2. By god’s grace we could start a new work at Nellimolam, Vvayikkara, and Rayamangalam. Its a huge place which is surrounded by Moovattupuzha, Perumbavoor, Kothamangalam, Odakkaly and Kuruppampady. No other Brethren ministries are continually done there till now. We are wishing to do a continuous work there for a need of one assembly there. Myself and evangelist P.K Joy does this ministries with the support of both our assemblies : Pralayikkadu Brethren Assembly and Krarialy Brethren Assembly. Any evangelist willing to work with us can contact us. Please pray for both the ministries.
