Thank you for praying for our Easter services.
My heart was troubled as Easter was approaching. Everything was shut down because of COVID-19. I thought only three or four Hindus might accept Christ. I had told all my pastors and leaders not to go evangelizing before Easter.
But, “they did not obey me.” This was the first time (that I know of) where they didn’t obey me. They said that the Spirit of God was moving among the villages and many would come to Christ. This time they did not do big meetings, but went from house to house tirelessly and evangelized, and also got people ready who had already been hearing the gospel for months.
On Easter, our churches split up into many, many small group house churches and shared the message of resurrection and gave the invitation to accept Christ as their Savior. To our surprise, 45 Hindus gave their lives to Jesus Christ in these split up house churches. I was shocked and was praising the Lord for His movement of the Spirit. This is beyond what I thought or imagined.
Dinesh accepted the Lord, but his wife was against the gospel. His parents were so much against the gospel that they kicked him out of their home. Dinesh, together with his wife, opened up a small bike repair shop and lived in a tiny rented hut in the same village. He continue to share to his wife and would ask for prayer for his wife to get saved.
As Easter was approaching, their small son got sick. Our village church prayed for their son and God healed him. Then, three days before Easter, they were sharing with his wife how COVID-19 was one of the many signs of the last days and that she was not ready to meet the God of the universe. She continued to hear the same message each day and the Holy Spirit broke through her heart. On Easter, Dinesh’s wife accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. Please pray that his father and mother will also come to Christ.
