Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The pandemic challenges have become a new normal. Church ministry is restricted due to a new government order to restrict people from gathering, because of this, missionaries and evangelists are not always welcome. However, I had the opportunity to reach out to a remote place near Myanmar border in a village called Larong Khullen (India) to preach the gospel.

I found the time to interact with groups of children. They told me it had been almost a year since they had been able to have a Sunday class. I shared the love of God and many Bible stories for 2 hours and then conducted group prayer. I was saddened as most of them had forgotten the Gospel. For example, they did not remember “For God so loved the world…” (John 3:16) Some of them did not like singing praise and worship songs. The spirit of worship was gone. I encouraged and motivated them about why God cannot be forgotten during these difficult times.

During the visit I felt the need to organize a winter Vacation Bible School (VBS), as most of these children’s parents are jhum cultivators.  Their parents stay in the field for about a month, and they spend two to three days traveling just to reach their field. Children are often left unattended in their absence. I also spoke to some of their parents and had a wonderful time enriching them with words of God. It was a blessing for them and for me, in particular.

Finally, before I left, I distributed face masks, sanitizer, soap, and sanitary pads, as these items have become basic necessities to fight the Covid-19 virus. I pray that we may continue doing what God wants and has put in our hearts and that He will continue to help us in this difficult present situation. I thank you all and also ask you to pray with hope and faith. May God bless us all. Amen.

 

Yours sincerely,

Peter Seltun
