Elrod Dec 2020 - India
Another year has come to a close and we thank the Lord for all that He has done over the past 12 months. Although many things did not happen at the time or ways that we thought that they would, nevertheless we praise the Lord.
We have been able to continue to meet with many from the churches in Delhi on a weekly basis. These meetings have been a blessing and an encouragement to me. I long for the day, Lord willing soon, that we will all be able to meet together again in person.
As we close out 2020 and look forward into 2021, we are continuing making plans for the Delhi Baptist Bible College. Notes are being gathered, lessons are being made and materials are being translated. We are asking the Lord to use this to help us train more young men to start churches across the country of India.
One of our goals for next year is to purchase property for a church and for the Bible college. There is a lot of red tape that we are still working through, but we are trusting the Lord each step of the way. In a country like India, we aren’t guaranteed to be there forever. Because of that, we are asking the Lord for “roots”. As these churches are “planted”, they need time and space to grow. Please pray for wisdom in this area as well.
You all have loved and blessed our family more than we deserve. We are humbled by your continued generosity. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
Business Visa & Return to India: We are still prayerfully hoping that we will be able to apply soon.
Laborers For India: How are we going to reach a country the size of India? We need help! Pray that God would raise up more laborers for the country of India.
Co-Laborers: We are not the only ones waiting to return to India. Two other families are waiting to return and one family is finishing deputation. Pray they will be able to get their paperwork as well.
Yours to India,
Eric, Rebekah, Olivia & Emilia Elrod
