The Power of the Gospel in India

Mar 26, 2003 03:15 PM EST

More than a month ago, angry men severely beat and nearly strangled GFA native missionary Titus for trying to show a film on the life of Jesus to an unreached village in Jharkhand, India. But this has not stopped the Gospel from going forth.

Just days after some of the men threatened to kill him for spreading the Gospel in their village, Titus bravely returned so he could try to get back the confiscated film equipment. What happened next is unbelievable. After several meetings, the village committee returned the film equipment unconditionally and in good shape.

The very men who said they wanted to crush Titus into powder are now eager to see the film on the life of Jesus. A GFA film team will come soon. "Now, there is no opposition for our work in that village," writes a GFA field leader. "It happened because of the prayers of thousands who sincerely persevered in prayers for this situation. We believe and pray for a strong and thriving church in that village."

"It means so much to us that so many of you have been praying. Continue to pray with us for the Lord to work in the hearts of these precious people for whom Christ died. Pray also for Titus. He still suffers bodily pain from his beatings and is unable to ride his bicycle for long distances. But this has not stopped him from joyfully continuing his ministry to the unreached."

The missionaries of Gospel for Asia give all the praise to Him who "is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think" (Ephesians 3:20, KJV)
