We are seeing the results of multivillage evangelism. In the third quarter, 2,963 people have joined the Adventist Church in our area. One hundred new congregations have been established and 100 new Sabbath Schools started. Two hundred new lay preachers are working actively in these churches. There is a 200 percent tithe increase as of the third quarter.
The focus on evangelism is strengthening the eastern Uttar Pradesh region and helping us attain self-sufficiency.
Eight child literacy centers have been started. Village leaders have agreed to provide land for these centers, and parents are paying to help make the centers self-supporting within four years. Sixteen baptisms have been realized through this program.
I am sending details of 10 new places where we plan to open the way of salvation using the services of 10 newly recruited Gospel Outreach workers. We praise the Lord for His mighty works in this small part of the world. Thank you very much for your continuous prayers and support for evangelism in our area.
