Missionaries to India
Representing the Assemblies of God
Joyous Greetings to Everyone!
On July 1st we had a marvelous Sunday with our English-language Church for its 24th Anniversary with Lunch on the Grounds with around six thousand in attendance! There was wonderful singing, testimonies and rejoicing!
July 1st was also our 40th Wedding Anniversary, and the Church presented us with a cake, a large bouquet of flowers, and a song written especially for us. This was all very moving expressions of love.
Overseeing a congregation of this size is quite a job. But, God’s blessings makes it worth it all! Over the years, over 6000 have made first‑time decisions to accept Christ as Savior. The excitement and spiritual life of this Church is something very special! We are renting a former theatre, and we are literally packed out. More than half of our congregation sit outside in two overflow areas participating by means of large projection TVs. As you can imagine, the need to have our own facilities is quite pressing.
Also, as the only A/G missionaries living in this state, we work closely with our national brethren in planting new churches, and supervising about 300 Churches and out-stations, and our Bible College - a three-year course of study in the local language, with a fourth year for students who know English, as well as a very fruitful ICI ministry. We desire to see a church pioneered in each of 1120 areas, reaching out to thousands of villages, and the many large towns and cities.
We came to the States on July 3rd for a mini-furlough, and arrived in time for the birth of our 3rd grandchild, little Rebekah Ann, born on July 6th. Her sister, Anjali, was born February 21, 2006, to parents Jeff & Sharilyn. And grandson, Alex, was born October 1st, 2001, to parents Michael & Valerie. Both our daughters and their families make their homes in Springfield, MO.
Then for two weeks in July, we were involved in the School of Missions in Springfield, where we were honored by the presentation of a large crystal award for 34 years of missionary service. We, of course, continue being full-time missionaries to India. Then for the first week of August, we were involved in our General Council held in Indianapolis.
Finally, as we leave for India on September 19th, we want you to know that we appreciate your prayers and support more than we can say. You are a very important part of this ministry. Please note that it is our plan to up-date our blog-site at least quarterly, but more frequently if we can.
May the Lord bless you, and meet your every need, even as you help us in bringing the Gospel to this great land.
With Much Appreciation,
Earl & Arlene Stubbs
