Good news from the Andaman Islands this month! Ten new pastors were sent out one month ago to various islands after graduating from the new Bible school. The following is information we received recently regarding this God-inspired, Holy Spirit powered outreach from four of the pastors.
Church at Middle Andaman
In a short span of weeks God has helped start a small house church at Mayabunder with 12 members. We had to walk through the jungle for 1.5 hours to reach the destination. When we saw the village in the middle of the forest our hearts were filled with joy. Pastor Mankal is appointed there. All of them received Jesus as their Lord.
Church at Diglipur
We had 21 people attend the house church. All of them were from a non-Christian background. They came to receive the healing and joy of God. Many received Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We spent the whole night sharing the Word of God and no one wanted to leave. Our hearts were filled with joy to see the hunger that people have for the living Word of God. Philemon is the pastor.
Church at Rangat
Pastor Manbhavan and his family are doing ministry in these islands. They are working among the Ranchi people. They are habitually addicted to drugs and alcohol. By God’s grace we had a house full of people attending the first meeting. Fourteen people were added to the church. We have seen some instant miracles happening in the name of Jesus.
Church at Bambooflat
The healing of one little girl named Akashi has brought great glory to our work on this island. Doctors told her that she would never walk for the rest of life. Her parents brought her to our house prayer and God miraculously healed her. Now she can walk and started going to school by herself. As a result the work started to grow and many received Jesus as their personal Savior. Pastor Rabinder and family are taking care of this church. In some places we faced issues and could not conduct the meeting. There we encouraged our graduates to stand firm and focus on prayer.
We have seen a mighty move of God in our recent visit. We thank God for our Bible College; otherwise we could not have sent these graduates to the field. We want to thank all of you who are standing along with this ministry and supporting us financially. May God bless you for each and every soul that is reached through our ministry.
Here are some pictures to encourage you from our time visiting with 4 of the new 2023 church plants this past month.
Grateful for you,
Raja and Sheeba
I am convinced the Bible College is God’s vision and is our priority in the Islands. This is the only Bible College in the entire Andaman Islands, and will be great blessings to the Kingdom of God for years. As you know we started the college in a rented space.
There have been hindrances and problems. The neighborhoods do not want us to continue. It is because of the persecution that is spreading rapidly across India. This is the second time we have been asked to vacate the building and now forced to find another rented building. The enemy is trying to stop the Kingdom's advancement in the Islands. We need your prayers.
We have found a suitable land and gave a token advance amount for the land. We are praying that God will provide the balance of $100,000 USD for His ministry in the Andaman Islands.
We love you and pray for you.

Mission Thoughts from Dennis and Robin
“Your pleasant path leads me to pleasing places. I’m overwhelmed by the privileges that come with following you, for you have given me the best! Your whispers in the night give me wisdom, showing me what to do next. I experience Your wrap-around presence every moment.” Psalm 16:6
We have been led by the Lord to many pleasing place s and introduced to wonderful people all over the world. It is an honor to serve Him and others He places in our path. You are making a difference in many lives. We enjoy helping orphans, widows, and pastors in remote places build relationships with the Lord. Will you join us in prayer as we ask Holy Spirit to continually give us wisdom to steward His gift of ministry, which is from Him, for Him. He gets all the glory!
Food For Thought
The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying.” — Acts 9:11
God often has specific instructions for you in prayer, like He gave Ananias the street address to go pray for Saul. God answered Saul’s prayer here, a man who was murdering Christians—God will also answer your prayers!
You can be an important part of our ministry by praying for us. Prayer is a weapon of warfare, and we covet your prayers. If you would like us to pray for you, e-mail your prayer requests to us. Please pray for the following:
We thank you, in advance, for praying for the following:
Pray for your pastor and family.
Pray for all the pastors in Vietnam.
Pray for our government leaders.
Pray for wisdom as we plan travel.
“And their eyes were opened and they recognized Him.” Luke 24:31
We founded Going Global Inc. in 2007 with this ministry goal. It is still our heart today. Thank you for praying and partnering with us. Together, we can do a lot!
