From Vijay Thangiah, National Director
Mission Trip to Manipur
After 3 years of praying and planning and waiting on the Lord, it was a dream come true for staff from Youth for Christ in Delhi who went to Manipur on a 10 day mission trip. Manipur is a state in North east India which has a lot of tribal infighting and drug addiction among young people.
But in spite of the challenges such as shutdowns and closures due to violence in different places, economic blockages, fights among the tribals and other problems in Manipur, they were able to do outreach in 6 schools, 3 hostels and 2 church youth groups.
235 young people made first time commitments to the Lord and 270 rededicated their lives.
We praise God for making this possible.
25 Years of BHEL TAMI
Youth for Christ in Hyderabad celebrated 25 years of the Teens & Twenties Are Most Important (TAMI) ministry in the BHEL area. The TAMI ministries have played an important role in introducing many young people to Jesus.
Zordaar Zindagi (Abundant Life), the Silver Jubilee Celebration of BHEL TAMI, was very meaningful and fruitful. It was held from the 30th of September to the 2nd of October, 2011. An average of 900 people attended the event each day. Music Bands like the SOTN, REVIVAL & YFC got everyone to their feet. While YWAM, YFC BHEL TAMI and BETHEL Evangelical church wooed the crowd with their choruses. Topics like Identity Crisis & Love, were addressed by Sunny Joseph while Edward Williams presented the Gospel message without any compromise.
A total of 146 commitments were made at different levels. We have drawn an action plan for follow-up.
Please uphold the follow-up in your prayers.
