Equipping Pastors in the WORD

Equipping Pastors in the WORD

India has thousands of Christians, yet they are a small fraction of the population. Most are very poor but they are rich in Jesus Christ. Their impact is great, just as all believer’s can be, because we are Ambassadors for Christ. HIMIndia’s mission is to partner with them in the Great Commission to “make disciples” as Jesus has commanded us to do. The most effective way to fulfill that is for US to help them by equipping them in the Word of God, encouraging them in their relationship with God and empower-ing them by letting them do the work!

This month HIMIndia has had very little support for the two brothers and their families and ministries in India. Stephen and Prabhu are your tireless servants equipping, encouraging and empowering rural pastors in India. They are instrumental in introducing thousands of pastors and their churches to the Master’s plan for evangelism in the Great Commission by making disciples. They teach inductive Bible Study methods

and introduce them to a three you training program.

Graduation in Zambia

I received this letter and pictures from Matthew Daka as they celebrate the graduation of 7 pastors in his district. They worked hard for 4 years to complete the course. Some completed the studies but not the course. The course includes planting a new church and personally discipling 3 other men in the Word of God. Praise the Lord for their diligence and hard work to the Glory of God. -Jeff Hawkins, HBM Zambia Coordinator

Dear Brother Jeff,
Praise be to God for his mercy and love which he has given to us through his beloved Son even our Lord Jesus Christ. We had a good time with the brothers this morning December 19, 2015 celebrating the completion of studies by our brothers in Lusaka North. Despite the heavy rainfall, the graduating pastors with their wives came to the venue at Victors Family Bible church. I have been with the men since May 2011. When we started, the men were 15 in number but some of them could not finish the training. However, 7 of them completed the training and  five graduated. We lost one of the men last month as he went to be with the Lord.

Thank you for your continued prayer as HBMZ and HBM USA strive to train men in the Word of God so as to be pastors who teach sound doctrine from the precious Word of God.

From: Matthew Daka, HBMZ Administrator

The year 2015 of our Lord is fast approaching the end. As I look back at what the Lord has done for HBMZ, I want first of all to say many thanks to all who have supported us. You, our donors in the US, have been a blessing to all our pastors and many Christians here in Zambia. HBMZ is grateful to all the donors who have been giving to HBM US who are our partners. Your blessings have made it possible for us to buy Bibles, print and ship training manuals from South Africa to Zambia, supply motorbikes to our pastors as well as bicycles.

Bibles for India

Sharing the WORD of LIFE

Sharing the WORD of LIFE

Support INDIGENOUS MISSIONARIES in India this Christmas.
HELP provide Bibles to poor Christians in India.
Pictured is Missionary Prabhukiran and wife Swarna ministering in a church in a slum compound in India. These brothers and sisters struggle to survive working as day laborers seeking to provide for enough food for the day. They can not afford Bibles but desperately long for the precious Word that gives eternal life and hope for daily living.

Your brothers and sisters in Christ need the Word of God just as you do. YOU can help. Send a gift to HIMIndia to help support Prabhu and Swarna and other Indian missionaries bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to their people in India.
