We are thankful to God for bringing us as a first Pastor and Pastor's
family to work in Gujarat. Because it was our desire to work and
build on a new Virgin land as Paul says in Rom 15:20 "It has always
been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so
that I would not be building on someone else's foundation." By the grace
of God I started this A. G. Ministries in Gujarat in the year 1991
when the Assemblies of God not even a had a single church in the whole
state. One of my Church youth girl married a person who was working
in Gujarat invited me for a seminar and healing crusade. By the grace
of God in one full week of meetings we had very good response and eighty
six people took water baptism and eleven people gave their life for
full time ministries. As Apostle Paul says in 1 Cor 3:10 By the grace
God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone
else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds.
In 1 Cor 3:11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one
already laid, which is Jesus Christ. By the direction of the Holy Spirit
I went and worked so far in this Western India. Even today Assemblies
of God has Northern, Southern and Eastern counsel but not the Western.
The task before us is very big, but we need not to fear since our Lord
goes before us.
Now we are in the city of Baroda, now it is called as Vadodara in the
Central part of Gujarat where we established yet another church. Apart
from this church activity we are continuing on his mission work in Jamnagar,
Kutch, Jalod, Dahod, Rajesthan border and in M.P. border. The vision
what we have is to bring up Full Time Servants of God in the Fellowship
and in the knowledge of the Word of God. Now, these Evangelists are
being trained in two specific areas of the truth, one is practical,
to live a holy life [to have Christ like character] and have a testimony
among the people, so that to be ready for the second coming of Christ.
The other important task is to equip them with a deeper understanding
in the word of God. Since the blind can not lead the blind. God has
helped us to translate in Hindi and Gujarathi some needed Bible meterial
for this training. We have a small team of workers for giving this village
Baroda Bible Club.
