 Reuben and Pinky S

Thank you for your continuous remembrance of us and prayers for us. God’s grace and mercy continues to be our encourager, sustainer and protector. We have had difficult moments in the ministry due to the civil war between two ethnic groups: the Kukis (Christians) and Meiteis (Non-Christians). The war is still going on but God who is in control of everything is allowing us to fellowship together as a Church and carry on the ministry.
Prayer requests:
  • Pray for the Church as we have started the ‘Knowing God Lessons’ all over again. We have two groups – the adult group and the children group. Pray that we will know God closely and have deeper relationship with Him as difficult days are ahead.
  • Pray for the 6 (Six) children at the Grace Children Home – their physical, mental and spiritual health. Their studies are going on well. This year we have two girls and 4 boys:
    • Vahboineng (Girl) – 6 years - LKG
    • Lhinghoithem (Girl) – 8 years – Class II
    • Kamminlen (Boy) – 11 years - Class VI
    • Lalgouhao (Boy) – 10 years Class IV
    • Lamboithang (Boy) – 6 years – Class I
    • Patrus Budathoki (Boy) – 9 years – Class II
  • Pray for the smooth functioning of the School. In the past years we had faced challenges due to corona. And now we have to tackle challenges because of the civil war. There are frequent bandhs and blockades. Sometimes schools are asked to close down for a day or two. However, because of God’s grace we are safe and protected.
  • Pray for Gracy (my daughter) and children from our Church: Akrity, Arman, Asha, as they will be apprearing Board Exam starting from 15th March.
  • Thank the Lord for His providence through the support of FBC. We could do coloring work of the school; renovate rest room of the children, construct retaining wall which otherwise would have effected Children Home during monsoon.
  • Once again, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your prayers, remembrance and support. Pray for the Churches in Manipur so that we may grow and rely on God’s grace no matter whatever the situation is.
