image001Prasad Sakile of the New Life Regular Baptist Society in Andhra Pradesh, India, sends the following ministry update:

We have successfully conducted the following programs with the help of the mighty Lord.

  • VBS teachers program (using Regular Baptist Press Sunday School material): 22 teachers attended from my region
  • Pastors’ Motivation Training program: 158 pastors from the Rayalaseema region attended
  • VBS children’s camp during the summer holidays: 450 children attended, and 180 children accepted Jesus as their personal Savior
  • Youth retreat: 64 youths dedicated their lives to the Lord’s work
  • Sunday School teachers training camp in my region: 331 teachers attended
  • Baptisms: 71 people have been baptized through our ministry works

Now I am prayerfully planning to conduct another training program for pastors this year. I am planning to teach doctrine (using Dr. Paul Jackson’s book The Doctrine and Administration of the Church), doctrinal differences between major Christian groups, Biblical preaching skills, new birth, Christian maturity and spiritual growth, church organization and administration (using The Doctrine and Administration of the Church), Biblical counseling, gospel preaching methods to unreached people, and social anthropology. Please pray for this strengthening of God’s workers.
