Dear Praying Friend Pastor Wright,
As the whole world, with everything in it seems to be changing every day, adding up challenges on every front, may these verses encourage us to find peace, and inner peace in our lives.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14: 27 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body, you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. Colossians 3:15
Isaiah explained to Israel: Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusts in Thee. Paul teaches the Philippian Christians that IF they are anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication make their requests known to God with a thankful heart - THEN the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Last week was a wonderful week, the Lord was so good. He kept us healthy, and with a sound mind. Spending 3 days in prayer & fasting, believing God to intervene in His sovereignty to console families in distress, restore health & healing to the ailing, turn sorrows into joy, bless our country & its leaders and restore normalcy of complete healing in our land.
Strengthen Our Brethren
The training Life in the Kingdom has indeed blessed many of our associates & others who were part of it. Many have written back with special notes of thank you. Hope to have another set of teaching in the near future, “Believers Authority”.
Pst. S.P from Palwal (Haryana State) continues to organise daily Zoom meetings for the local Church & for those who are interested to be part of prayer & intercession. Local Christian leaders, and others from India speak every evening, thus encouraging the fellowship. Campaign on Covid awareness along with Swachh Bharat (Clean India) was carried out in three villages.
Pst. K.K from Karnal (Haryana State) continues to reach the marginalized, especially the poor children in nearby slums. He always seeks help towards one time food & stationeries for the children. Recently he felt a need to have a two-wheeler for his commute. Last week two souls were added into the fellowship.
Pst. C from Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh State) had to vacate the house. The recent rains in the northern Himalayas raised the water level in the river Ganges, thus flooding the city of Varanasi. Thankfully he found a good house, that too of a backslidden believer whom he continues to minister from the Word. There seems to be no restrictions to conduct prayer meetings or activities for the children.
Pst. KKG from Chandauli (Uttar Pradesh State) moves with great strength of the Lord, reaching many new villages with the Gospel. The Swachh Bharat (Clean India Drive) was successfully carried out by the Church youth in the nearby villages, distributing masks & sharing awareness about Covid infections.
WhatsApp Morning Devotional: Daily morning devotional in 3 different languages continues to bless many. WhatsApp Prayer Room continues to receive requests for prayer especially for jobs these days.
Karnataka Prayer Warriors: North Karnataka Pastor’s team continues to meet together on a daily basis for prayer & intercession for the country, people & the ministries. On 15th August 2021 it will complete 100 days of continued prayer & get together over Zoom. Daily a minister from a different district or state has been ministering. God gave me the privilege to speak on two occasions in this meeting.
Facebook Live Meetings: On two different occasions in two different pages God gave me the privilege to share His mighty Word.
Translation Ministry: In two Zoom Meetings & 1 Google Meet, God enabled me to help in translation. It was a great blessing. God has opened more doors for translation ministry.
Benevolence Visit: Joined along with Pastors to visit DaddysRoad Office, as much fruitful. The Christian brother who led the business was amazed by my surprise visit, and jumped from his chair to shake hands. He testified that our online ministry has a blessing to his family during lockdown. It was an encouragement for the efforts. Visited a medical nurse, and her brothers in the eastern part of Bangalore, these young people were blessed by the Word and testimonies.
Finding a local Church: Shelter House Church, found this vibrant, Bible believing Church for us to fellowship. Last two Sundays were a great blessing but I visited all alone.
Wife’s grandmother passed away last week. During her last breath, my wife was available to minister & serve her on the bed. On 12th August a prayer meeting is organised.
B. Sc. (Respiratory Care Technology) first year’s exams for our first daughter Keziah are being held. This whole month she will be busy preparing for her exams. Please remember her in your prayers. We believe God’s provisions to raise her sponsorship for 2nd year too. It’s a large amount, and we believe God has a blessing for her education. Second girl has not been to school for the past two years, nor attended any online class, we hope as things get better, she might be able to attend a regular school.
I continue to have back pain, and this could be because of the scooter, and new house shifting. The cooking gas got over, thus enabling us to apply for transfer from the old dealer. This long drive with two gas cylinders on the scooter worsened my back pain. Praise God the cooking gas has reached home from the new dealer near the house.
We continue to pray for all our financial partners, prayer partners, ministry associates & fellow believers every day. We’re happy to serve with you & along with you during these hard times with the promises from John 14: 27 & Colossians 3:15.
Yours in His Vineyard,
Pst. Peter Pal
