August 2012 Newsletter

Dear Friends and Family,
Greetings from India! We arrived in Bhopal safely last month and have been working relentlessly in the areas of training and church planting. Thank you for your hospitality and care, especially as Samuel travelled through the Northwest, South and West TX. May the Lord bless you richly and reward you all. Thank you for your continued support even though we do not see you in person as often as we would like.

THE NEW ACADEMIC YEAR AT THE SEMINARY
The classes at the Seminary started the third week of July. A total of 32 students are enrolled for both B .Th. and M. Div. programs. Thank God for better qualified new students who are enrolling each year. As our present Campus is very limited in space (we can accommodate only thirty students), we have to say, ‘no’ to a few students. Please join us in prayer that God will give us the necessary funds to build our new Campus soon!

THE SPIRITUAL EMPHASIS WEEK
It is our custom to devote a few days in the beginning of the academic year to emphasize “Spiritual Vibrancy” among the members of the community to walk close with Christ. We encourage developing a passion for the love of Jesus, for prayer, for lost souls and for holy living. What a joy it was to see the transformation happening just in front of our eyes.
We are praying for you.
Yours in the Ministry of Christ Jesus,

Dr. Samuel & Susan Mathai


We started a new Pastoral Training Center with 13 students at our new “staff building” being built at our property. We feel this is a strategic project where we have ‘hands on’ training, allowing us a personal involvement in the very center of India.
