Mission to Srikakulam
With our latest evangelistic festival in India a little over a month away, anticipation at our ministry and in the city of Srikakulam is building to a fever pitch.
We are especially excited about our initiative to dispatch an army of trucks throughout northeast India to enable thousands of residents to attend.
Pastors and church leaders from communities outside of Srikakulam have caught the vision for this outreach, which starts the week after Thanksgiving. They want to mobilize their congregations to bring their non-Christian friends and family members.
However, because many people don’t own a vehicle, getting them to the stadium in Srikakulam poses a major challenge.
That is where Matthew 10 Ministries and our faithful supporters enter the picture. Earlier this year, we set a goal—some would say impossible—of raising $30,000 for transportation to the festival.
However, because we know that this is the most effective way to get people to this event, we are praying that God will move in hearts like yours to make this happen.
Each truck can carry 100 people. So, reaching our goal means we can send out 600 trucks and bring 60,000 people to the meetings. You can sponsor one truck for only $50, or two for $100, or 10 trucks for $500.
Offering people rides is only the beginning. Our team in India will track the truck stops and make sure a sponsoring church nearby can reach out to them. If there are enough new converts in an area, those congregations can help start new churches.
Thus, the seemingly-simple task of transporting people to our festival ties directly into another of our primary goals: starting new churches and training new leaders.
As an increasing number of India’s 1.2 billion people have responded to the gospel in recent years, one of the growing needs there is leadership. The body of Christ needs more trained pastors and spiritual leaders who can plant new churches to strengthen this move and lead converts into a closer walk with Jesus.
All this activity represents a powerful move of God. For thousands in the near future, a new life will begin with a ride to a stadium. If you want to take part and reap the harvest of righteousness Paul talks about in 2 Corinthians 9:10, click here to make a donation.
