India: 2nd Quarter, 2018

By Asee and Sanjay Darla


Greetings to you in our Lord’s wonderful name. I am grateful for all your prayers. World Radio has given me the opportunity to labor more for the Kingdom and die with more satisfaction and more confidence. I always praise my God for this great opportunity in joining this global program to call people who accept the Gospel and to become a part of One Kingdom. Brother Ben has put his trust in me to labor on behalf of him and One Kingdom to help people to be saved from the devil and his devices. I am personally thankful to you for all your prayers and encouragement.

In India, last month we have received 142 new responses and 87 repeated responses. We invited some of those who have been studying with us to give them a conclusion of our studies—to accept God’s new covenant and be born again. It was a four-day class and we spent about 20 hours giving them a picture of the new birth. 22 couples attended, and two wanted to be baptized this month. I understand we need one or two studies for the rest before they are born again.

In Sri Kalahasti, we studied with a group of 45 denominational preachers and 28 Church of Christ members. We studied 4 scriptures on the board.

We attended a Church of Christ preachers meeting in Ongole; about 300 preachers were assembled from all over Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. With most of them, I worked in the previous years. They were so happy to meet me on this occasion.

Last month, we baptized a total number of seven. Two in Nellore, three in Guntur and two in Tenali.
