Greetings once again to my dear brother Pastor Charlie.                                                          Yes we talk many times about the work of God and how to reach the lost and different people with the word. We already do monthly outreach, meeting and encouraging different churches and pastors. I believe this is a great season to sowing the seeds in the hearts of the people. I feel the month of December is great month to reach the different religious, caste and cultured people where they don’t reject our invitation to the Christmas. We wisely make use of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with loving invitation, because many people do not allow us to even talk about God. We have our gods and goddess why should we believe in foreign God and His Son, Jesus Christ. But the Christmas Eve is great opportunity for our pastors and churches to get the villages together on the streets and invite them to come to the celebration and birth of Jesus Christ. There are thousands and millions of gods and goddess in India and there is a special plan in the birth, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Only in the world history Jesus Christ is the only One that God raised again from the tomb. All other gods and goddess are there in the tombs or dead. Jesus’s tomb is empty.

Not only the pastors and churches but also the orphan children take responsibility and burden for the lost souls to bring them their friends and share the love of God. How God loves the children! They memorize the scriptures, sing wonderful songs, skits and dancing for the glory of God. The young people children in the world do whatever they want, going to clubs, drinking alcohol and many worldly habits and having their own pleasure. But the precious children in our orphanage are reflecting the glory of God through their lives and deeds. “Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.(Deut 11:19) Also Proverbs 22:6 says “Start children off on the way they should go,and even when they are old they will not turn from it”. I pray every seed that we sow into the lives one day they will bear more fruits. Our lives are examples today that we are in His mighty work. I pray that the power of Holy Spirit can move His children like big wind to capture those broken places no matter what age,what color or language. What is needed is willing and faithful hearts to do His work. God can use one person particularly when He calls. We have to reply “here I am O Lord”. I pray that the Lord will rise such wonderful host for His glory and work in these last days! In His vineyard. Pastor Salmon and family, India.
