By God's grace the Indian churches continue to advance the kingdom, planting new works and making disciples.  God recently blessed the New Delhi Church, which is led dynamically by Albert and Rita Shane, with some great victories.

By God's grace the Indian churches continue to advance the kingdom, planting new works and making disciples.  God recently blessed the New Delhi Church, which is led dynamically by Albert and Rita Shane, with some great victories.

Shortly after sending out the Bhubaneshwar mission team (which has had two baptisms in the first two months, and a bring-your-neighbor day attendance of 70 in a tough field), the New Delhi Church had its own bring-your-neighbor day for Christmas.  About 550 disciples celebrated Christmas with an attendance of well over 1500!

By faith the church prayed that in 2006 God would add 75 souls to the body through baptism or restoration.  By midnight on December 31st the Lord had answered the faith and boldness of the saints, as the last of 77 souls made their decisions for Christ in Delhi in 2006!

We are praying for even greater things this year, by His mercy.  Please continue to pray for all the disciples and churches in this country of over one billion souls and for their faithful leaders, Dinesh and Caroline George.
