The following report is from Rev. Jon Mitchell, Executive Director for College of Prayer International.
Thank you for your continued prayers for our growing ministry in India. I returned in September, which was my fifth time there since we launched in India in March 2015. I had 10 flights through 5 countries, was in 8 villages and cities, and preached/taught/exhorted 18 times in 10 days at our Campuses in 3 of our key zones there. I am so encouraged by the way God is using the College of Prayer in India. We are literally impacting tens of thousands of pastors, youth leaders, women leaders, and lay leaders! Every time I go to India the testimonies become more powerful. One of our key leaders told me while I was there:
"Before the College of Prayer we were having many programs and trainings. They were equipping leaders, but very dry ... not much life. But since the College of Prayer has come it has been reviving the pastors. Many pastors had lost their prayer life. They lost their zeal for the Lord. College of Prayer has reignited their zeal. It's like the dry bones have come to life. [Leaders] are regularly saying that God has brought the College of Prayer at just the right time. More and more pastors are worshipping with joy. This was not happening before. They were like statues."
Please continue to pray as we are making plans to launch into other areas of South Asia in the next 12 months.
