John Victor Sakile is a pastor in the East Godavari district of South India and leads the New Life Regular Baptist Society. He sends the following ministry update.

Brother Sam successfully ran a Sunday School program for children who live in prison with their mothers, and 42 prison children accepted Jesus Christ is their personal Savior. We need to purchase Christmas gifts for the prison Sunday School children, but we are having problems with our financial situation. We need $450 (US) to purchase gifts. Please pray for Lord’s help in this special issue.

With the Lord’s help we have finished the pastors’ motivation and training program. The Lord allowed me to teach the doctrine and faith statement of Baptists. We have also successfully completed the Quarterly Sunday School Teacher follow-up programs. This year we trained 302 Sunday School teachers with our newly translated material. But this recent quarter we weren’t able to conduct the Sunday School teacher training program due to the cost of printing the translated materials. Please continue to pray for the Lord’s provision.
