Dear Ministry Partner,
Greetings in Jesus Name! Mony and I arrived from India on Jan 20th after ministering in many states of India. We were able to understand the various issues in the ministry field, and encourage and challenge our leaders to reach out to more villages through our ministry programs. We were able to touch over 20,000 people through speaking and teaching. Thank you for your prayers and support. We prayed for you many times with our missionaries and believers. It is our prayer that everything will go well for you this year as you live in Him and doing His will.
It is time once again for the graduation services for our Bible Colleges in 27 states of India and the seminary in Nagpur. Over 400 students will graduate in March. The graduation service for most of these Bible Colleges will be held on March 22, 2016 and the seminary graduation in Nagpur will be held on March 19.
Before each graduation we hold a special Pastors’ Conference to help further equip the missionaries and Bible students. Many of the pastors will stay for the graduation so they can offer their prayer support to each graduate.
It will cost $1,000 for the pastors’ conference and graduation service at each school. These costs include tent rentals, invitations, graduation diplomas and gowns, transportation for the pastors, speaker expenses, and a gift of a Bible for each graduate. We also provide lunch for everyone since in many cases the relatives and other believers have to travel a long distance to join in the celebration. Each graduation is a great opportunity to celebrate the students’ accomplishments in the classroom and their ministry experience in the nearby villages.
The seminary graduation speaker is my good friend Pastor Kerry Bauman, from the Chain of the Lakes Community Bible Church, Antioch, IL. The cost is $5,500 as we expect over 1,000 people to attend.
I humbly ask you to give a special gift to help with the Bible School graduation services and Pastors’ Conferences. You can give online here. Whatever amount God leads you to give will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your help!
If you would like any more information, please contact the office at (847) 265-0630. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Gratefully in Christ,
Dr. Saji K. Lukos
