Starfish Christian Trust: Street children

376 Souls brings new church

The recent visit to India by our administrator proved to be of great success. In addition to a lively pastors conference on the subject of Unity, visits to the sponsored children and those rescued from slavery, a medical mission, perhaps the highlight was a two-day open-air crusade meeting.

The first night attendance of close on a thousand was probably doubled on the second night and the total number of decision cards from people receiving Jesus as their saviour for the first time had a final count of 376 souls. A wonderful harvest. We were able to give a Bible to everyone who responded on the nights.

As always at an open-air meeting we pray for the sick. There were many testimonies to healing reported to the pastors and some of these can be seen on the attached PDF file. They are very encouraging.

The response was good enough to see a new church planted at the crusade venue. One of the difficulties in that area is water and so we were able to assist with the drilling of a new clean water borewell that will provide freshwater for the community.

We have been told that the first Sunday after the meetings some 165 people turned up for the first service at the new church. God is so good!
