Pray for our church building. We have been renting the same rooms for the past few years to hold our services. The owner of the building now wants to raise the rent by 64% in December. We are just not able to bear this increase, so are praying and searching for other options. Pray that we find the right place, or that God changes the owner's heart.
Pray for a new ministry. A group of young people from the North East of India (Manipur), has been meeting for fellowship in Chandigarh for a couple years. Brian met them through a mutual friend and preached for them a few times. They have asked him to be interim pastor for them. They want help in forming a church, strengthening the believers, evangelizing the unbelievers in their midst, and calling a pastor when they are ready. The group meets near the campus of Punjab University, and a lot of those that attend are college students. This will mean a greater responsibility and ministry load for all of us. Pray for strength for the work.
Pray for our furlough plan. We are praying and planning to take a furlough next year, starting in April or May. Pray for the finances to fly our family of seven to the US.
Thank you to all that read our updates and pray for us. It is so important for missionaries to have the support of the believers. We cannot do it alone, please keep us in your prayers.
