Feeding Camp in Brajarajnagar
Yesuway Jeevan Mission’s Ministry Partner: ODISHA MINISTRIES
In April, ACGC World Outreach sent funds to India from the Bread of Life program, some of which went to Pastor Ahaj Kumar Pani in Odisha. He has recently sent pictures of the Feeding Camp that he held to distribute food purchased with those funds. He wrote as follows…
“Today, (May 14, 2017) on Sunday, we have made a feeding program for needy people from Brajarajnagar mission field. We want to thank our Missions Manager M.M. Immanuel sir, for arranging fund towards this feeding program.”
DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO (DRC)
THE BREAD OF LIFE PROJECT
Conference President Bertin Mwanya reports:
The DRC Conference developed a children’s program several years ago to answer the call of loving the needy children and to give them a brighter future. The program desires to make the children followers of Christ by grounding them in the Word of God by providing them with spiritual food and also a meal (to meet their physical need), hoping to see them become disciples of Christ and possibly become future leaders in the church.
ROCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE
Eastern Region Superintendent Greg Twitchell reports:
CityChurch began in Rochester, N.H. in the fall of 2014. In April 2017 the church plant was officially recognized as a church and a member of the Maranatha Conference by unanimous vote of the delegates present. Elders Greg Twitchell, Randy DeTrude and Brian Moffitt made the decision on behalf of the church body to seek this partnership within the conference as we desire to be under authority, connected to a larger body of believers and because we want to be a blessing to the conference and our sister churches.
INDIA – Advent Christian Conference of India (ACCI)
Baptisms at the Melakottaiyur Church
The church at Melakottaiyur is part of the Advent Christian Conference of India, and is situated more than 12 ½ miles from Guindy. The church has been ministering for about 70 years and presently has a congregation of 48 families – about 200 people. It is one of the churches for which the missionaries of earlier days had the foresight to purchase large areas of land, which were very cheap because they were so far from the city of Madras (now Chennai) and thus has a fairly large compound. The present pastor is Pastor Andrews.
