MOST RECENT REPORT FROM MINTHANG
From the 28th- 31st August, we were working at Pallel and surrounding villages. We visited 9 different villages and preached to about 1700 unreached people over the 3 days, preaching to the most hidden people/ tribes and we encountered many challenges. It’s never the fortunate and easy incidents that defines our life but overcoming the challenges. Though battling strong opposition against the gospel, we kept marching forward and many people heard the gospel each day and as such hundreds of lost souls were saved. Persecution pushed us to work harder and make our ministry more effective.
As soon as we reached Pallel we split the team in two and went elsewhere to whatever places they can preach and reached the unreached people. We did this as a way of reaching the people in a larger scale and saving of our time. 109 people accepted the gospel and made Jesus Lord out of approximately 1,700 hidden people who heard the gospel of salvation through our rural evangelistic ministry. Together with our team we also had the privileges of praying for about 98 people having different sicknesses. God performed His gracious miracles through our prayers, so 14 people who suffered from chronic diseases claimed their healing instantly as a result of our prayers. We trust that many of those that we prayed for will also get the healing power of God sooner or later.
On our way back i was invited to preach at a small church in Kakching, there we had about 85 people. While i was preaching many people sensed the presence of the Holy Spirit and all of sudden there was great joy and many people were spiritually awakened and there was great revival happening in this church.
Col, God willing from Friday the 11th, till the 13th, Sunday, i will be again going to Phailengjang village for a rural evangelism ministry among the hill tribe people. Pray with us for the saving of many lost souls.
Col, the builders were working hard to complete the roof and gutter repairing of our Diplomat centre. I hope to send you and Ian the completion pictures before i go to Phailengjang village.
Col, as i always said many precious souls were saved in a regular basis through our strong partnership ministry. May the good Lord continue to bless you is our earnest prayers for you and your family. Looking forward to hearing from you and to see you again very soon in His perfect timing.
Bless you my brother. Shalom.
Hi my brother Col.
Trust you are doing great under God’s grace and protection.
FROM THE HARVESTING FIELDS (near the Indian and Myanmar border)
From Friday till Sunday, the three of us went to three different villages dominated by non-Christians. We stayed in the villages for the whole three days. In the first village, we had an open air program where I preached the gospel. At the end of my preaching about 75 people came up to have a salvation prayer. After these 75 brave people accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord in public, we asked if any sick people would like us to pray for them. Many people came forward. Our team prayed for them and as a result 39 people were healed instantly. In the evening, we had a short bible study with those 75 new believers to encourage them and to make their faith strong at one of the house compound of the new believer.
After a short bible study, we had a worship meeting and all of sudden when we started praying one man started speaking in tongues, which was followed by others and in a few moments everyone was slain in the Holy Spirit.
On Saturday the 30th May at the request of the first village, we went to a nearby village. We conducted open air preaching. About 114 people came to listen to the word of God at our open air preaching.
About 92 people newly received Jesus Christ as their Lord as a result of my preaching. Again we asked if they wanted prayer for their sickness, about 52 people came forward to be prayed for from different ailments. Our team prayed for each one of them, and God performed His miracles through the faithful prayers of our team and 28 people claimed that they were instantly healed.
On Sunday the 31st May at 6:30 a.m. sharp we moved to the third village, which is about 29 kilometres from the two villages. There we organized another open air preaching at the invitation some local Christians. While I was preaching unfortunately some local thugs came and created trouble. They tried to stop us from preaching and tried to push back all those 84 people who were eagerly listening to our preaching. We gently talked and discussed with the Thugs and at last after so many prayers and negotiation, the situation calmed down and I was able to make them sit and listen to the word of God, including the thugs.
After 35 minutes of preaching the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, I made an altar call, and to our great surprise the leader of the thugs came first and gave his life to Jesus Christ our Lord. Many people were so amazed and astonished to see the full repentance of the thug leader. Then another 59 people followed and accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord. At the end of the meeting our team prayed for the sick people and God performed His miracles.
Seeing the full repentance of the thug leader including another 59 people and the healing miracles of God that took place, all the 59 new believers and the rest of the other people were slain in the Holy Spirit and thus GREAT REVIVAL BROKE OUT. People were shouting and rejoicing from the top of their voices worshiping God. So the worship service continued until late in the afternoon with a great revival.
Col, on the same day last week on Sunday the 31st May Khaiboi went to Haokhongching village and he too had a great ministry there. Khaiboi baptized 8 young people who recently received Jesus Christ as their Lord in Haokhongching village. There another great revival took place, in the evening during the worship service the whole villagers including the 8 young people that were baptized took part in the Lord ’s Supper which was inducted by Khaiboi.
Col, we are so grateful to God for using us to save souls through our partnership ministry.
On the 15th January 2020, we purchased our brand new car through the great initiative and generosity of many our friends who donated funds generously for the car. Many hundreds of people have been saved and healed and heard the gospel as a result of our being able to travel. We still have countless numbers of miles and uncounted numbers of Indian villages, hills valleys, rural and urban to preach the gospel to the nation. Pray that God will supply us every need in heralding the gospel of our Lord to every corner of the globe. We still have many millions of unsaved souls to reach as we continue in our burden for the millions of lost souls, let us pray that God will use us in saving the millions of lost souls.
Very sorry for this lengthy report, take great pain and be patience to read it. Looking forward to hearing from you and to see you again in His perfect timing.
May the good Lord continue to bless you my brother. Shalom.

FROM THE HARVESTING FIELDS
We revisited some villages of our rural evangelism ministry, where many people got saved. We also visited some of the neighbouring villages and preached the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the hidden people. We always feel great and happy that we did what we can in reaching millions of lost souls for the extension of His Kingdom. We thank God for making us His instrument in saving the lost souls. I am very proud to be your co-workers and to work together in His great kingdom ministry.
On Wednesday the 17th June, we went to Saikul with Rev, Rakhon and Pastor Akhup, for seminar and rural evangelism to the hidden tribes. For your kind information many different tribes and languages live together in Saikul. Many thousands of hidden people live within the boundary. Our good friend Pastor Akhup with the help of very few local Christians in the are, arranged an open seminar where we had good discussion with the non-Christian people about the gospel of Salvation.
In some places like Wangoo Pallel, we didn’t maintain social distancing and fix the number of people and had as many as we can as the places were a bit far from Imphal and being so isolated. In such far flung places social distancing, wearing of mask or setting limited numbers of people is not mandatory.
In Saikul on Wednesday, at our first seminar we had about 60 people all from non-Christian background. Rev Rakhon and I preached and shared the word with counselling and open discussion. In the first seminar 27 people accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord. We moved to another place for our 2nd’seminar. At the second seminar we had 31 people majority of them were Hindu Nepalese. As a result of our ministry 18 people newly accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord.
Then in the evening around 5:30PM, we came down to Dolaithabi small town where we had about 94 people eagerly waiting for us in a small private school building. Out of the 94 people 84 were from a non-Christian background, due to security reason it is not wise to name their religion. Just before ending my preaching several people from the middle seat stood up with tears from their eyes and asked me to pray for their salvation. I did that and many people without even making an alter call came forward to the stage and pleaded to pray for their salvation. At that point of time Rev Rakhon and Pastor Akhup came to help me and the three of us prayed for them. As a result of that 41 people newly accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord.
The clock was ticking and it was already 7:45PM in the evening and we needed to leave the place. However, just before we left we sang one song and all of sudden a man already Christian who was sitting at the rear seat got anointing of the Holy Spirit, he stood up started speaking in tongues which was followed by the whole audience and thus revival broke out. In few minutes time we left and assigned Pastor Akhup to look after them.
By God’s grace on Wednesday the 17th,June altogether 86 new souls being saved and added to the Kingdom through our partnership ministry.
Col, tomorrow i am again going to Thoubal for a evangelistic ministry to the hidden tribe, and God willing we will come back on Monday. Kindly pray for the saving of many lost souls.
This is a progress report of our ministry at Langthabal (Manipur Nth East India) and surrounding villages that we evangelised from the 8th, August 2020 till the 10th. It was a very successful time with many people awakening spiritually and being healed from their sicknesses and 74 souls saved.
We arrived at Langthabal at 10:55 AM, with our ministry team. Our bible college graduates have been working in that vicinity for the last few years. With the help of a very small Christian congregation in the area, they organised a ministry platform for us to have an open air crusade. According to our team who organised the event, they received lots of opposition from the enemies of the gospel. Some local people tried their best to stop the evangelism program. However, our team with much stronger effort make our plan a success. God gave us the victory and as a result we were able to preach to few hundred people.
At our arrival about 130 people were waiting for us in a large community hall. At 11:00 AM I started preaching. After about 45 minutes I finished and invited the people to come forward if they wanted to receive the free gifts of Christ’s salvation. At my invitation 38 people comprising of 18 male and 20 female mostly in their mid-20 s came and accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord said a salvation prayer and confessed their sins. Before we ended the meeting, I invited sick people to come forward for prayer. Opponents of the Gospel came and started arguing with many unnecessary arguments. They also warned us and the people that Jesus Christ can’t do anything and told their people not to believe and kept threatening us in the process. While they tried to stop people from coming for healing prayer, immediately a paralysed man was wheeled in and asked me to pray. I immediately anointed him with oil and prayed in front of the crowd. God graciously answered my prayer and the man who couldn’t move by himself for about 3 years immediately stood up before every one and testified of his healing with tears of joy. All the families joined him jumping and shouting with joy. Everyone saw the great miracle that God performed and this ultimately turned the hearts of all those opposition people. Then many lined up to be prayed for. Our team came and helped me and we prayed for about 89 people and as a result, God healed many people instantly and others over a period of time.
We then moved forward to another village and altogether 389 hidden people from different villages heard the word of God for the first time in their life, during our three days evangelistic campaign. Out of these 389 people, 74 people newly accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and 36 people were healed from different sicknesses as a result of our prayers. Out of the 36 people who got healed from their sicknesses 4 men who strongly opposed our ministry got healed and also received Jesus Christ as their Lord.
Col, let us continue to step forward in our ministry, even in the midst of many oppositions, and bring our ministry always to a higher level. Hundreds of thousands of people are dying each day without knowing our Lord. Our valuable time in serving Him, effort, commitment, dedication, sacrifice and our money that we invest in the ministry, will never be in vain.
Bless you my beloved brother. Shalom.
