Elrod Feb 2021 - India
Over the past several months that we have been delayed in the US, we have been waiting for any news as it relates to India opening back up. We have said multiple times, “Any news is good news.” Well, we have some good news. We have begun the visa application process for our new visas. We are waiting for one original document to arrive from India to complete my (Eric’s) application. Once my application is processed and approved, we will be able to apply for the rest of the family as their visas are dependent upon mine.
Lord willing, once we receive the first visa back we will be able to plan our return back to India. We are thankful for each one of you and your faithful prayers for our family and this process. It has been long and you all have remained understanding through it all. We hope to write soon with news of return tickets purchased!
Until then we are continuing to meet online with the pastors and young men in India. This has been a real blessing for us. There is much work to be done in India and we are praying that God continues to bless the work there. Rebekah was also able to speak to the ladies at our home church for their monthly split session. I am thankful God allows us both to teach His word.
We have also had the privilege of helping with the Our Generation Easter Offering, a campaign to help raise the funds to construct the building for the training and housing of future missionaries at the Our Generation Training Center. On April 4th, churches across the country will be taking part in this exciting event to further the cause of world evangelism. If you and your church would like more info about the OGEO, please let me know. Vision Baptist Missions and the Baptist Center for World Evangelism would love to send you a free promotional kit to share with your church family.
Business Visa & Return to India: Praise! Process has started. Pray we get at least 5-year visas.
Our Generation Easter Offering: Churches to commit to pray about giving to the OGEO.
Yours to India,
Eric, Rebekah, Olivia & Emilia Elrod
