The real church across India is doing well. The greater the persecution, the stronger the church gets. The churches continue to grow in the Word and in numbers as the Lord gives increase. Pastors in the field from Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Orissa, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and so many other states report a steady stream of souls being added to the Kingdom by His grace. They ask that we diligently pray for the new saints as the attacks of the enemy become vicious. The pastors are resolved to serve faithfully and lift Jesus up.
We are very thankful for all the provisions the Lord has made in the past few months of transition. The fourth floor of Pune Center is now completely equipped and is housing the Girls Home. The girls are doing well, they love their new space and the ability to play in the parking areas downstairs. We now have girls from pre-school to college age.
The Medical Missions continues to look for a permanent Doctor. Please pray for the doctors that are volunteering there currently. KSOM is in stride with the semester and the Lord continues to provide a progressive vision for what He is doing in India.
We know this work belongs to the Lord. As the Scriptures point out, the fields are white and laborers are few. The team in India and we at home believe that we are at the cusp of exponential growth. Years of faithfulness in sowing the seed has begun to bear fruit. The Holy Spirit is moving mightily among the people.
Resources in the form of people and supplies are greatly needed both in India and here at home. We need ambassadors that would represent India Connection in various parts of the country, that would help us in getting many others involved and use their gifts, talents and resources to build the Kingdom of God. Above all, I am praying for many to be burdened to “pray” consistently and regularly for the Lord’s work in India.
Things to Pray For:
- Pastor Ray Viola visiting India in October/November 2015
- Pastor’s Conference, Youth Conference and Women’s Conference
- Faculty of KSOM
- Pastors across India
- New Doctor for the Medical Clinic
- Graduates of KSOM involved in various areas of ministry across India
- House Mothers at the Girls Home
- Opportunity to purchase additional land that has come up for sale next to Pune Center, can possibly be the future home for the Girls.

We realize that many of you have been going through rough seasons and we here at the India Connection pray for all of you and your families diligently. Please do not hesitate to send prayer requests. The church in India would also love to pray for you as you pray for them.
We are grateful and thankful for your love, prayers and support. May the Lord continue to bless you abundantly as you make it possible for us to serve the Lord in India.
