God’s provision is all around us. All we have to do is observe the natural world in order to see God at work. Creation is bursting with reminders that God provides. Knowing this, Jesus implores us to look around, to pay attention: “Look at the birds of the air…Consider the lilies of the field.” As we do, faith rises in our hearts; worry dissipates; trust in God grows; and we become more and more confident of this: that our Father knows what we need before we even ask him (Matthew 6:8).
THIS MONTH, PLEASE PRAY FOR…
Pastors Marsel and Pradeep, both of whom are part of Vision Nationals’ church planting network. These men and their families are serving Jesus in the state of Odisha, and they are being persecuted because they are Christians. Their food rations (which are provided to India’s poor by the Indian government) have been cut off and so has their access to the village well. Pray for the safety and well-being of Marsel, Pradeep, their respective families, and their congregations during this outbreak of hostility.
The flourishing of the Indian church, especially in those areas where hostility towards Christians is on the rise.
God’s continued blessing on those who attended last month’s pastors’ training program. We thank God for providing us with another opportunity to equip and encourage the church and her leaders.
The completion of the five church buildings that are currently under construction, as well as the capacity, financial and otherwise, to build many more. We have been asking God to make it possible for us to build 12 new church buildings this year.
The English-speaking congregation (or “English church”) that is now forming in Vizag. The church’s first worship service is slated for Sunday, August 24.
The new children’s home we opened in L.N. Peta, Srikakulam District, on June 18. We are so grateful that God has allowed us to expand our ministry to at-risk children beyond Vizag.
The safety of those involved in building our new school. God’s provision for this project was nothing short of amazing, and we give him all the glory.
God’s continued favor as we renew our government-mandated recognition of Master’s School. This has been an arduous process, but we are now in the final phase. Continue to pray.
God’s grace to rest upon us as we plant churches, train nationals, and care for orphans and widows in India.
Thank you for praying for Vision Nationals. It makes a world of difference.
Since 1992, Vision Nationals has been planting churches, training nationals, and caring for orphans and widows in India. Through your prayers and financial gifts God has graciously sustained our work.
