Jagan and Deeba live in Kavarapettai, Tamil Nadu, India, and spent five heart-breaking years trying to conceive a baby. Deeba’s cousin, who is part of NewLife’s women’s group in Kavarapettai, invited her to attend a women’s meeting so that they could all pray for her to conceive. Even though Deeba was Hindu and not Christian, she attended the meeting and allowed the ladies to pray for her. Last Friday, July 15th, 2022, this precious baby boy was born. About three months into the pregnancy, Jagan and Deeba accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior, even though the doctors were telling them that the baby would never survive. Jagan and Deeba discovered that Jesus was not only real, but that He cares. Thanks to Pastor Vijya Kumar for leading such a vibrant church, and to the ladies of NewLife Church in Kavarapettai for stepping out in love and faith.
Savita, a life-long Hindu, has suffered all of her life with both legs and one hand unable to function. Recently, two NewLife church members who knew Savita, convinced her to attend church services with them in the village of Periyapalayam. During the worship time – without anyone directly praying for her – Savita was completely healed by the power of Jesus! She immediately accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior and stood on her own two legs and clapped her hands in praise and thanksgiving to the God who heals. She walked out of the church service totally healed, and remains that way today. Thank You Jesus for physically healing Savita, but even more for giving her eternal life through Your shed blood. And thanks to our local pastor in Periyapalayam, Pastor Matthew, for shepherding a church body that teaches and welcomes the life-changing power of Jesus.

This is Pastor Ebi holding a church service in the village of Palakara in the state of Tamil Nadu. For three years he has been trying to plant a church in this village, but has been prevented due to persecution against Christians there. The month God opened a door in Palakara and Pastor Ebi has launched a new work there. Four families have accepted Jesus as Savior and two men have been healed; one from cancer and one from a nerve disease. Praise God!
