Growth in India
March 24, 2012
Smyrna’s ministry partner “Dev” and his wife “Hansa” don’t give up. As Smyrna’s founder explained on his blog, Dev and Hansa shared the gospel for 22 years in India without a single convert. They still kept on sharing God’s word and did not give in to discouragement. God blessed their faithfulness. By the time someone from Smyrna visited Dev in 2009, he was discipling and training roughly 169 Muslim-background families!
Every new convert is exciting news. Choosing to be baptized is a serious decision for someone from a Muslim background, since increased persecution often follows baptism in Muslim-dominant regions. Please pray for the convert who was recently baptized in India.

“What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor.”—1 Corinthians 3:4-8
