  • RP Global Missions – 1. Praise God that Amit was bold in declaring his faith in Christ to his grandparents and that he was not asked/forced to perform the Hindu rituals. 2. Pray Pushpa would come to saving faith in Christ. She is very burdened by the responsibilities on her shoulder as a mother, sister, and daughter/daughter-in-law. Pray that those societal shackles would break and she would be given divine grace to unburden her heart to the Lord Jesus Christ. 3. Pray for Pushpa’s daughter, Suriya, who is yet to grasp the loss of her Dad. She is chirpy and sings sweetly at church and loves the church family. Pray that God would save her at a young age.
