Dear Family and Friends!

Yesupadam and I are enjoying a relaxing (and productive) week in Austin with wonderful friends, while our kids are spending the week at a camp in New Mexico with a youth group from Texas! So far they are doing very well…please keep them in prayer as this is a first for them and us. :) We will be together again on Sunday, to continue on our very busy 2 months of travels ‘around’ the US.

NOW FOR THE TESTIMONY FROM INDIA!!

You may remember the story of the 8 month pregnant young lady who was brutally beaten along with her husband, while trying to bury their 1 1/2 year old daughter in the state of Orissa. She then lost the baby as well…2 children in 2 weeks. GOD WILL WORK ALL THINGS OUT FOR GOOD FOR THOSE ┬áLOVE HIM AND ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSES! In answer to all our prayers, the men who beat them became CHRISTIANS AND WERE BAPTIZED!! And a church is now being built in this previously staunch Hindu village! They have completed the walls, and have requested our help to complete the roof…which will cost around $1,000 USD. AND, this dear young woman is now pregnant again! PRAISE THE LORD FOR HIS REDEMPTION POWER! Thank you for praying…the Lord hears and answers. :)

India…our school year begins again next week, middle of June. Please pray for:

-2 more teachers needed for our primary classes by next week, as we have had to add more classes to accommodate all the students!

-provision of $40,000 USD to add an extension to our existing school building.

Next week of Travels…please pray for our family…

with love,

Yesupadam, Monika, Bethany and Benjamin

House Dedication!

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

The church was dedicated in January, and on March 22nd the Pastor’s home was dedicated. It took maybe a month to build, and now the Pastor and his wife and 2 boys have moved from the 1 room ‘shack’ they were renting at the foot of the church, to the beautiful 3 room home attached to the church. They are so happy and so blessed!
