Moses Chatla is a pastor with the Indian Christian Bethel Baptist Gospel Fellowship in Andhra Pradesh, India. He sends the following ministry update.

Nearly 40 percent of the population is under the age of 25 in India. If we don’t teach them the truth, the world will teach them false. We organized a youth meeting in Machilipatnam, the place we planted the new church, on Jan. 26. We have sent out the handouts, used social media to invite youngsters, and to our surprise 164 students turned out and it was a real blessing to them and us as well. Praise the Lord.

Joshua lead them in worship, and the theme of the youth meeting was “One Love : One Lord : One Life.” Eighteen members never heard the gospel before, and it was their first time coming to a meeting like this with their friends. God is doing some great things and we encouraged those to attend church on a regular basis along with their friends.

A Bible study has been going on with two young men and one got saved and will be baptized this month.

Please pray as we want to conduct such youth meetings in the coming days too.
