Indian Church of Christ - Bangalore
Ashok & Anusha PDF Print E-mail

Ashok is from Guntur in Andhra Pradesh. He grew up in a devout family. His dad wanted the whole village to come to Christ so he provided family property and personal finances and took personal interest and built a Church building. Around 300 believers are there in the village now. But unfortunately as Ashok grew up he could find that most believers are not really following Christ. Even the pastor who is supposed to shepherd the flock has joined the flock in their sins.

Ashok always wanted to revive at least the youth. Even when he started working in Bangalore as a software engineer he used to travel every weekend and organise youth programmes to turn the hearts of the youth to Christ.

As he got married to Anusha and had a baby, he was attending a Church in Bangalore but no one was involved in his spiritual life. He was sincerely seeking God. That is the time his neighbours Premnath & Sunitha became friends and shared their faith. Ahsok & Anusha started attending the services and soon the brothers & sisters started studying the Bible with them. That is when he understood that he himself need to be saved. Both of them were really eager to study the Bible and  get baptized. He keeps thanking the brothers who taught him the Bible and says ‘no one ever taught me the Bible like this ever’.

 

Now he is even more passionate to save not only the people in his home town but every where.

 
Pray for Liberia PDF Print E-mail

Can you pause and pray at noon for your West African brothers and sisters? Monrovia mourns the loss of our sister Evelyn Gamoh to Ebola. She was a single mom with two kids.

 

EBOLA02 3000930bHervé Fleurant sent this to ICOC HotNews:

I just got off the phone with some disciples from the Monrovia, Liberia church. As many of you may have heard, one of our sisters, Evelyn Gamoh, passed away from Ebola a few days ago. The disciples there are are very sad and very stressed by the current situation. They told me that, yes, Ebola has taken many lives including our sister, but many hundreds more are dying from other diseases that the hospitals cannot or fear to treat due to the high number of health care workers that have already died in this outbreak.

Liberia endured a decade-long civil war recently and was just now beginning to get it’s health care system up and running efficiently again. This is why, they explained to me, the virus has overwhelmed their health workers in Liberia, even killing the top two medical doctors in the country. In their words, "Ebola respects no one."  (Photo above is the burial of a medical worker).

The disciples ask that we please join them in prayer daily at 12 pm during the month of October. They ask us to pray for God’s mercy, that the Ebola virus can be contained and then stopped.

Please pass on their request to disciples you know and let us pray together for the Ebola crisis in West Africa.

In Him,

Hervé Fleurant

Joshua Mark George, son of Dinesh George & Caroline George who leads the churches in India has been studying the Bible for almost last 6 years. As the Scripture says in Romans 8:28, In all things God works for the good of those who love him and who have been called according to his purpose. God has been working for the good in this family. Dinesh & Caroline have been serving indian churches sacrificially. They had to make many sacrifices but it hurt their children in some ways. That made it difficult for Joshua to put his faith in God and to accept Jesus as his Lord and Saviour. In all things God works the good and God never gave up on Joshua. After much perseverance and through many people’s fasting & prayer Joshua decided to get baptised on 25th of May . It was very faith building to see his baptism.  his conversion has given faith to many other kingdom kids and also to the parents.

Eashwari grew up in a small village Chinthamani of Karnataka in a poor family. Due to financial  constraints of not being able to pay dowry, her mother and mom's older brother forcefully got her married to her mom's younger brother, when she just turned 15. Soon she became pregnant, but when the pregnancy started, her husband left her and started life elsewhere with a new wife. Eashwari's baby was born deaf. There was no one to support her or care about her and her baby. Hating her life there, she came to Bangalore with some far relatives to find a job. She found job in a garment factory and looked after her child, amidst many challenges. During that time, she was invited to church by a sister who was working with her, and she became a disciple. But the pressures of life, and desire to have a life partner led her into a relationship outside the church, and she left the church to get married to that man. He lured her with promises of being a
