November Baptism Service
November 2021 Report
Last week I returned to the United States. It’s been a blessing being able to spend time with my son (a pre-med sophomore at Asbury University) in addition to getting to meet many of our ministry friends and partners throughout the country. Pray for us as we look for new opportunities and connections to share what God is doing through Bethany in India. We are so thankful for the people God has put in our path who support our work through prayer and giving. I’m scheduled to preach every Sunday on this trip, however, if you’d like to arrange any small group meetings during the week, reach out to me over Facebook messenger to coordinate this.

Project Update: Well Project Completed ✓
Last month we reported an urgent need for a new well for our primary ministry facilities in Vizianagaram. We’d like to give a special thanks to Cattle for Christ ministry for sponsoring the project. The new well is purchased and installed (pumping motor and water storage tank) to meet the water needs! Thank you!
Ministry Focus: Bethany Children
Bethany Home for Children now has grown to 35 children under our care. These are children God has placed in our path who have been abandoned and left to fend for themselves. These children and the new facilities for them is our continued focus. We also need to grow our monthly partner program in order to more adequately care for the children on an ongoing basis. Some recent medical emergencies have shown that to us. For the present, we need to construct new facilities to accommodate the growth. We’ve raised over $10,000 towards the construction of the first phase. Pray for us as we look for ministry partners to help us complete this much needed expansion at Bethany.

Month in Review
We’ve been extremely busy in the work of the ministry, even managing to squeeze in a Bible distribution the day prior to leaving for the US. (3000 Bibles distributed)
Equipping the church planters for 2 days
Great night of preaching the good news of Jesus. We travelled 10 hours to this village to share the love of God and the message of the cross!
