I recently received a report from one of the Indian pastors who has a ministry that the people of Good Shepherd support with their dollars, their devotion, and on occasion their visits.
Pastor Sushant described a recent spring revival he held.
I will let his words speak for themselves:
Thank you very much for your prayer which enabled us to have the people from our mission fields to gather together for three days of fellowship and encouragement. The theme was learn from me Math.11:29..There were about 4000 crowd.Lord blessed them with good christian fellowship and hearing true God’s word.We invited two speakers. Their names were Sister Sanjukta Sahoo and Bishop D.B. Hrudaya. Many turned to Christ and committed themselves to live for Him. Lord was good and faithful to meet the needs to conduct this big meeting.Praise be to Him.
Four thousand people.
In stifling heat.
Under constant threat of persecution.
Sleeping in the fields.
Abandoning local gods for the sake of the Lord of Lord and King of Kings.
(And we complain if the parking lot is full or the Worship Center is too cold.)
People coming to faith and those who were already “in” the faith growing deeper in it.
Could there be any more urgent expression of inviting all people into a living relationship with Jesus Christ?
