"They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony..."
Dearly beloved in the Lord,
Greetings to you all in the precious and sweet name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
We hope you are safe and doing well. We do pray for you every day without fail. May the Lord protect you all and make this time a blessing for you.
As you know Jammu & Kashmir being the top crown of India all foodstuffs, groceries and other materials have to be brought in by trucks from central and southern India. Since all the borders of each state have been shut down nothing is reaching here in our state and thus we are the worst hit. In the past one month, we as a ministry have been able to reach out to more than 500 families who are mainly day labourers and including people out on the streets and provide them with dry rations which include rice, flour, lentils, and cooking oil. Many of them were in tears and the district administration was taken by surprise that we would come out and help people at a time like this. We value your support and prayers as we continue to reach out to more people in the days to come.
I am glad to let you know that your prayers and supports have not been in vain and by God’s grace we are all doing well and safe in the hands of the Lord as we continue to pray for you, we value your continued prayers and support for us as we press on in the work the Lord has given us.
The Lord has kept all our pastors, their families, and congregations safe so far. But they are all facing financial struggles and other challenges. Also, the funds which were regularly coming from overseas have ceased and we are gravely concerned of how we will put the support for our missionaries next month as very little donation has come in the last month and a half. Please do earnestly uphold us in your prayers.
Thanking you and praying for you all,
Yours to reach this generation for Christ,
For Dr. Santosh Thomas
