From the Chairman
Praise God that He has brought us into yet another year. Every New Year brings us new opportunities and new possibilities. We hear of wars, diseases, political unrest and murders, every day. The love of many has grown cold and the society in general is experiencing a moral decay. We, as believers should not be surprised by these things. In spite of all these happenings, the message of the Good News of Christ acts like an anchor in these troubled times. Jesus told that all these things will happen during the last days (Mat 24:12). But on the other hand, He has also encouraged us to become more holier and righteous (Rev 22:11).
We declared the year 2016 as the ‘Year of Holy Spirit Revival.’ These are the days about which Joel prophesied hundreds of years back – “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh (Joel 2:28).” God has started to pour out His Spirit in a new way. We could experience a special move of the Holy Spirit in all the meetings that we organized all over the nation during the past year. We had organized ‘Blesso’ for the first time in Assam. The missionaries’ visit from the north to the adopting districts in Tamil Nadu was very fruitful.
We are declaring the year 2017 as the ‘Year of Reconciliation.’ We should not only be right with God, but also be right with people. Many a time, revival fires are not sustained because we do not accept people as they are. The roots of bitterness and envy develop from within our hearts. These things had to be purged. Only then, we can experience true revival. Reconciliation alone can bring joy and happiness to our families and fellowships. Let us set aside days to rebuild broken relationships. And let us strive for peace. Hence, in this year we will meditate on the subject of reconciliation in our camps and the magazine.
Praise God for all that He is doing through our ministry all over the nation. There has been a phenomenal increase in the number of prayers cells (968, over the last three years) ever since the launch of the ‘Bless Bharat’ project in the year 2014. During the last year alone we could reach out to 23,718 young people and 126 worshipping groups were established in the virgin soils. We are happy to inform you that we have initiated ministry in Punjab. The ‘Bless North in South’ and the ‘Tent-Makers Wing’ is slowly taking shape. We are also planning a programme ‘Bless My State’ to mobilize Christians in the Non-Tamil States for Missions. Both the Lay Ministerial Wing of Tamil Nadu and the Missionary Wing of the Mission have planned systematic programs all through the year. Please see the event calendar on page 9. All Glory to Him!
I sincerely thank all the lay leaders and full time workers of the Mission for their kind cooperation. Pray that all the present leaders will be endowed with special grace and anointing to lead the Mission in the right direction. On behalf of all the leaders of the Mission and our General Overseer, Brother A. Lionel, and on my own behalf, I wish you a joyous New Year 2017!
Yours in His Service,
Mr. Dickson Daniel Moses
