We have just returned from quite a long and exhaustive trip. On our way to Kohima, we had three times flat tires and then finally one SUV hit our car on the side and smashed the rear right door. Since we were sitting on front seat, we came out unharmed. Praise the Lord!
In Kohima, we ministered in the Nagaland EGF conference. There were 121 delegates. The theme of the conference was to “Preach the Word” (2 Tim 4:2). All the delegates returned with a commitment to spread the good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I have uploaded some pictures on Picasa.

Unfortunately, AK could not get the Visa for Bangladesh and so he had to cancel his trip. In stead, he attended a Medical Board meeting in Jorhat and was able to preach in two morning devotion. Please pray for the four Baptist Mission Hospitals and their Nursing Schools in the Northeast India which are undergoing crisis. The Nursing schools are at the verge of closing and the hospitals are running in loss. These institutions were started by American missionaries in early part of 19th century but today they are in bad shape because of lack of leaders with vision and passion for Christ.
We'll be going to Tura on 16th Oct to minister a group of 70 pastors from Garo Baptist Convention. Asangla will take seminars on Biblical counseling and AK will take sessions on Biblical preaching. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Sonam is doing well in her studies at Dordt College in Iowa. Neema and Joshua are also doing fine with their studies in Kodaikanal School in South India. Here are few of their pictures on Picasa.
We are always mindful of you all. We appreciate your partnership. We know that we are not alone in our daily struggle to love and serve Jesus Christ. Please continue to pray for India as many Christians continue to suffer severe persecution.
