Orissa Ministry 2011

It's been a great trip so far to Orissa, we arrived here on the 30th of April and a five members team from the South West Assemblies of God University (SAGU), Texas came to do summer ministry for about 20 days on the 5th May.
Praise God for His grace, we were expecting Orissa to be very hot in May, but God granted us a nice weather, so far we have been able to do children's ministry in many churches in different towns and villages.
Thank you friends for all your prayers and encouragements. This coming Sunday, I will take Bobby along with me and go visit the prison of Koraput, one of my childhood friend and classmate is there, his name is Addi, please pray for him, as he is there in a murder case. There are about 2000 prisoners who are kept in the Koraput district jail.
I am looking forward to see what God has stored for us in the few days that we will be doing ministry here in Orissa before leaving for Mussoorie on the 24th May.


  1. How exciting to see how God is working so powerfully through your obedience, Ashish! Good to see Bobby leading worship for all those people. What a testimony to God's faithfulness when we just trust and obey Him.

    I will be praying for your Sunday visit to the Koraput prison, and especially for your friend Addi. Looking forward to chatting when you return to Mussoorie. Give my love to Seema and the Firs family when you next talk with them.


  2. Praise the Lord! It is wonderful to see all the pictures and read about what you are doing and that Bobby is leading worship and ministering alongside you. God bless you and every heart you touch along the way doing your great work for God.

  3. What a great experience for you Bobby! Praise God for His choice in choosing you to share your gift of worship and praise to our Father. Praise Pastor Ashish for his speech and testimonies to share with others. Thank you momma Seema for taking care of our children. You are the best !
