Merry Christmas

One of the best things we can do in the Christmas season is go out and share the greatest gift that God has given to us. So we decided to go to Okhimath, a place where the Lord opened a door for us last year to preach the gospel. But this is winter, and after driving for about 150 miles, we realized that not many people leave there, and the water is frozen, so we spent one night in the camp and returned to Kirtinagar, where on the 22nd we had a Christmas program. Three years before, Asha and Deepak went there to share the love of God to the people of the hills, and it took them that long to win the trust of their neighborhood. God blessed their labors, and they could harvest few souls for the Kingdom. Our team (Ajay, Amit, Lucky, Gopal, Ratan, Ritu, Barkha, Grishma, Himanshu, Subham, Ganesh, Bobby, Levi and I) left in different times to go to Okhimath and Kirtinagar.

It was the best way we could spend the last days of this year, fellowshiping with each other and sharing the love of God with people.

I have learned that a mission team allows each member of the team to develop their God-given potential, and when we move as a team while sharing responsibilities, we can do wonders. The impact was amazing. On the last day of our trip, we all were talking and sharing, singing till 2 a.m. We were celebrating in the presence of God. There is no doubt in my heart that the boys are looking forward to this kind of mission trip. It has indeed triggered our passion for the Lord.

We could not take any pictures in the high hills, but please enjoy the few pictures which we were able to capture on this trip.

May God bless you all, and wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Blessings,
Ashish

Our Children always ready to do the best for Jesus, our Lord.

There is no greater joy than to introduce Jesus to those who don't know Him.

The boys sealing the moment, before returning Home, Sweet Home.

  1. So excited to read about this mission trip! Did Seema go as well? I pray that Deepak and Asha and their family are doing well in their ministry.

    What a blessing and honor it is to hear that the boys are growing in the grace and love of their Lord Jesus Christ and honoring Him through their service to Him.

    Merry Christmas to you all. One of these days we will spend Christmas there! Love you!
