Beloved Pastors, Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ,
We present our loving, hearty wishes in the mighty, everlasting name of Jesus Christ.
We wish you A Happy Christmas & Prosperous New Year – 2018
We are here to do the Heavenly Kingdom’s everlasting King of King’s and the Lord of Lord’s ministry. Even though we are in this field at the very first row, we can clearly say that definitely our Lord’s protective and blessful hands are laid on us only by His pure grace and by your earnest prayers, support and motivation from New Zealand and other places also. We praise God for all His goodness and abundant grace.
As it is written in II Cor.– 2:14, 15
Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish
We are spreading the fragrance of the Gospel, not only by our own strength but also by your intention and supports. God knows your longing hearts that even the people of Bihar also should not perish so that gradually the people of Khagaria – district (Bihar) are moving towards the everlasting light.
All the glory, honor & thanks be to God forever and ever.
As it is written in I Cor. – 16:23, 24
“The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you. Our love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.”
I (Paul Sundar Raj) your loving brother, with my team members wish you and thank you for your everlasting co-operation and love.
God’s name alone be glorified forever.
Yours in Christ
