January 2010 – Outreach Efforts in the CLC-India
Pastor Jyothi Benjamin of the CLCI sent a brief report and pictures from a recent 9 day visit by Missionary David Koenig and his wife Mary.
From Pastor Jyothi Benjamin:
12 March 2010
In Christ dearly beloved.,
Cordial greetings to you in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, who suffered for us, leaving us an example, that we should follow His steps.
It was a great blessing for the eleven newly established CLCI congregations to meet honorable missionary Rev. Koenig and Sister Mary. The Lord has used Rev. David in a great way in this evangelism tour.
During the 9 days from 26th February to 6th March 2010, we have visited 11 new CLCI churches in the districts of Guntur and Prakasam. During this tour of outreach, many hundreds of members heard the good news of the Gospel. The glory of God was there in all the nights. Many people were touched, encouraged and equipped with the Lord’s strength.
We have distributed New Testaments to the children and John’s Gospel to the elders in all the congregations. Rev. David prayed for many sick people in most all the congregations. We give God all glory for this wonderful mission. Surly the CLCI was blessed by this outreach.
Praying that Lord bless you all richly always.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Jyothi Benjamin
