Sunday Blessings - The Harvest Is Plentiful

The  enervating  heat  and humidity  did  not  lessen  the  zeal and  enthusiasm of some 300 young  people ( ranging from  a  few  months  to  50) from  coming  together  for   2 days of  day retreat. The  Assembly of  Believers held  this  event  in  our  church. This  is  a  vibrant   and  growing  church with  branches  in  different  parts of  our  city. We  were  glad  to   provide  them  with  our  facilities  and  cooperation.

The  theme  asked  a question.
Are  you  on Faithbook?
A  friend  request  from Jesus.

The  church  hall  was  jam packed .

There was  worship, teaching,
drama,  music, talent display,
face painting, quiz and
a  treasure  hunt.
A very  simple  lunch of  dal(lentils)  and  rice
was  served  to  all.
On  both days lunch was  delayed
by 2  hours as the  cooks were  slow,
but  no one  complained,
not  even  the  tiny  tots.
Their  mums   gave  them  cookies  to 
munch while  waiting.

A  worship  dance

Face  painting time

You had  to  display  a  Biblical  truth

No  one  is painting my face.

For  the judges  to  see.

Another  group of  musical worship

These  damsels  came   to our  house  to
make  friends  with Sheeba

Sheeba  was  over joyed  with
all  the   attention  she  got

Here is  another  cutie

Many  people made  new  commitments
to the  Lord
and  believers  re-affirmed  their   faith.

The  Sunday School   kids  on  stage

The  parents  of this  11  month old  boy  sat
in  our  living  room everyday
to  feed  him.
They  are  a  beautiful couple.

Watch  these  videos  to  catch of  spirit.

he (Jesus) said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." Matthew  9; 37,38 BIBLE (ESV)

We  invite  you  to support  our  ministry  in whatever  way  you  can.

I see it was great time!
Today we have visitors from Kazakhstan - one Polish-Kazakh family from Alma Ata (I don't know whether I well wrote in English), and two weeks ago from USA - so from two "ends of world" :)

Oh Amrita, what a nice and meaningful event. Everyone looks happy and fond of the Lord. I really like the "Faithbook--A Friend Request" creative.

I love lentils and rice too...yummy!

Have a blessed week, dear Amrita.


Amrita said...

Hi Zim, good to hear that you had international visitors at your church. What a blessing to connect with believers from around the world. You EWnglish is good. You write well. Its just that the Google traqnslation on your blog doesn 't come out right and I miss the meaning many times.

Amrita said...

Hi oris, thank you for your sweet comments. Yeah they were4 a lively bunch of people. Lentils and rice is th e very basic lunch for most Indians. We have many kinds of lentils and pulses , so you can have a differnt one each day.

Pia said...

i've always wanted to try face painting. not sure if i'm too old for that. haha! great event you got there.

Kathryn said...

Everyone looks as tho they had a wonderful time. :)

Thank you for sharing. Hope you are well and holding up in the heat.

Zim said...

Amrita, thank You, I don't know everything, but I hard work on it :)
I add new version of translator, but it had to be in Polish - English is third language from top (in Polish - "angielski"). I'm hope it will be better, and I add it because I have more visitors from non-English regions (for example I knew someone who read in Kiswahili - I didn't had this language in old version).

Amrita said...

Hi Kathryn, thank you for visiting - hope you are having warm weather up in the mountains

Amrita said...

Oh Zim, you are so sweet. I will try the new translator. English is my second language too

Felisol said...

Dear Amrita,
I am amazed at the effort and enthusiasm of your work at the church.
You make me feel shameful for doing so little.
I thank the Lord for my Indian sister being such a faithful minister and harvester for the Lord.
Oh, Amrita, I know you have severe health issues to deal with. Nevertheless you remain faithful where the Lord needs you to be.
Some day I shall see the stars in your crown.
From felisol

I love to see other Indian Christians celebrating Jesus. It's so beautiful. I wish I could have been there.

I don't know the song they were singing, I know a little bit of Hindi, I thought they said the word "name", but I can't be for sure.

Anyway, this is so beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing the pictures and videos.

Amrita said...

Dearest Felisol, your contribution to the body of Christ is very significant.

You are fulfilling Galatians 6 ;2

bear ye each other' s burdens for in doing so you are fulfilling the law of Christ.

You are a saint equpper.

Amrita said...

Dear Miss Bible, welcome to my blog. It was a joy to visit your Godly blog.

You seem to have a special relationship with India. Yes they were singing about the name of Jesus.

May the Lord bring you someday to India where you can visit believers in person

I'm part black (African American) and part Indian (my mom is from the Fiji Islands).

So, yeah, I would say that I have a special relationship with India, by way of the Fiji Islands.

Thanks again for your post and your blog in general. It really does my heart good, to see Indian Christians. It really does.

I have a Hindi Christian music CD that I am trying to learn and understand, but in the meantime, I only know the basics of hindi. Just a little bit of it.

Anyway, thanks again for your blog.
