Please see below email I received today if anyone would like further information please send me an email, thanks. Mark

Dear Pastor Mark,

Greetings in the wonderful name of our saviour and Lord Jesus Christ. I hope you and your family are doing well there in Manchester. You are in our prayers.
Thank you very much for sending us the financial support last week which enables me to purchase a bag of rice and some cooking oil for the orphans and destitute children. This is kind of some helps to them. They need 4 bags of rice per month. Please keep them in your prayers.
In addition, I was able to pay electric and water bills and bought a bag of rice for my family. Thank you very much for that. Rent is a constant struggle for us. Please continue to pray for us and let your church members and partners to put us in their prayer list.

Chennai
Jul 02, 2018

Just had three days in Chennai, been drinking my coffee and snacks at 20 rupee corner, and then I bumped into a taxi driver who called me by name, and said I remember you from 2007? Then he asked how Tom was and Maggie? What a memory, as I didn't know who he was. Chennai changed a lot and is developing very quickly, looking forward to travelling home tomorrow (3rd July)

MAM - Punjab
Jun 17, 2018

I travel to Hyderabad today (Sunday 17th) after having spent two-half weeks ministering in Punjab, here we have sown many seeds to awaken believers and we shall continue on with this fight, please pray for pastor Vijay as he continues to expose the deception of what is happening within many of the churches. I will, of course, be sending information in regards to his own theological studies. I just want to thank pastor Vijay for his faithfulness and genuine zeal he as for the gospel, it is very hard to find men with a passion for the gospel, and a real love for the lost.

Bathinda
Jun 12, 2018

Update: Spent the weekend ministering a few hours outside of Amritsar, a place called Bathinda, one rooftop service, then two church services, I was hoping to preach at MAM Jassi Village but that couldn't be arranged this time. Again met some lovely people and had a nice time in Bathinda. I'm back in Amritsar now and I would be holding a pastors conference on Thursday, my topic would be on the false teachers, false prophets and so-called apostles, I will hit them hard with the gospel and God willing they would respond well to whats being taught. I will, of course, update the blog after the event and report on how the conference went, please pray.

Punjab Mission
Jun 08, 2018

Quick update, had a great meeting last night, I thought it was time that I would expose the false teaching that seems to be gaining ground very quickly in India. There is a so-called apostle going around teaching that he is able to dispense spiritual tablets, tablets to heal, tablets to empower, tablets to prosper and the like, well I hit it hard and spoke for an hour on false gospels and trickery that is filling India and how the believers are running after this nonsense. After the meeting and I left, that being around 12:30, the local pastors had to face an angry mob of believers wanting answers and asking if I was right, this had brought somewhat of a stir, but I have told the pastors that we have to get involved in the fight and challenge these false preachers and hit them straight on. I am waiting for the backlash either through emails or social media, or maybe face to face? Please pray for the believers to understand the difference and for the pastors that are making a stand. This movement is growing so quickly and the vast majority of believers are embracing this false gospel, the prosperity teaching and the signs and wonders along with all the experiential theology needs to be challenged at every opportunity.

Batala Baptists Pastors Conference
Jun 06, 2018

The first MAM pastor's conference ever held in Punjab and had forty pastors attend. This went really well, I had to mention the fact that the Lord requires His preachers to be true to the gospel and preach it has it is, and not like what it has become. Unfortunately, the Punjab as many fakes prosperity preachers, signs and wonders preachers that promise to heal and we see that they don't happen, and everything else and this is becoming somewhat the norm here. I went through many scriptures and rebuking and correcting this false gospel and it was received very well especially by the leader of this group (Over 500 Churches). The evening was supposed to be another open air, but the weather changed very quickly with strong winds followed by very heavy rain, so had to make a meeting in a church, only around one hundred in attendance but we took advantage of the very loud speaker system and preached the gospel.

Open Air Meetings
Jun 01, 2018

The first of the open air meetings in the Punjab, approximately 150 Sikh's attended the outreach and had a good reception to the gospel message. The meetings would generally be the same, different places each night of course, so I will be adding more photos to this frame every few days, anything significant I will make a new frame, of course, would appreciate your prayers for salvation to all who hear.
