Over 1000 People Hear the Gospel, Many Accept Salvation! – Pollukonda and Parnasa, India
Jun 14, 2016 767
Over a thousand people came to a recent GNU meeting in India, from miles around, riding on bicycles, tractors, and trucks – all so they could hear the Gospel and be saved.
Riding your bike a far distance to get to church may not seem the most convenient (or comfortable!), but many people of diverse backgrounds and religions are doing just that to experience the power of the gospel through GNU. In early June, Pastor Joseph, who partners with GNU in India, travelled to the villages of Pollukonda and Parnasa to present the gospel.
An astonishing number of over 1000 people came to these meetings, many by way of bicycles and tractors, spanning the distances to hear the spoken Word. Pr Joseph declares:
I am very thankful to God for bringing the many people to listen and to know about Jesus. Many Hindus who attended have now accepted Jesus into their lives. It was a wonderful and blessed experience.
Throughout the villages in India, as in many other parts of the world, the idea of the gospel can be misunderstood. One young man overcame a major roadblock in order to have a chance to hear the gospel.
Ravi went against the wishes of his Hindu parents when he went to hear the message — a decision that changed his life forever. He came forward at the meeting to accept Jesus into his life! Ravi expressed to Pr Joseph his desire to dedicate his life to Jesus. He says:
It was Jesus who has brought me here for this gospel meeting, even though my parents did not agree. I am thankful to Jesus, and my life is now saved in Christ.
Ravi was just one of many whose lives were eternally changed by GNU’s mission to share the gospel. These gospel meetings are a vital and tangible way for so many hungry hearts to hear and accept and word of God. Let us keep Pr Joseph and all those involved in our prayers as we remember our new brothers and sisters in Christ!
