New Name In January of 2019 we began a process to explore changing the name of our church. At that time, Matt stated that he wanted us to have a life-giving, unifying process, and hoped it would result in a vote at our annual business meeting in 2020. We have completed the process by voting to change our name to Magnify Church and will now begin to implement the change, all other ballot measures passed as well. Thank you for participating in this through prayer, discussion and voting.

Jonathan and  Hannah Victor –  India

Greetings from India. By God’s grace we continue to enjoy good health and strength. The COVID 19 spread is very high in our State capital and our city, even within our community. We are among the top 3 most affected States in India. This looks like a third wave. So, we are under lockdown. Appreciate your prayers for us. We sure hope and pray that God keeps you in good health. We are grateful to God for your faithful prayers and financial support for our ministries in India. Thank you. Jonathan continues his translation checking through teleconferencing. He is working with the Rathawi and Chiru language teams going through the Book of Acts and Psalms. The checking speed is slower, but we are encouraged for what we can accomplish in spite of the lockdown. We are able to visit our campus to supervise the construction work which is progressing in a minimal way. The workers from the villages are able to come for work. We have regular prayer and Bible lessons with them during weekdays and an hour of worship and teaching on Saturdays. We are able to meet with kids in small groups with songs and Bible teaching. We praise God for the numerous opportunities God provides us to share the gospel with people of a different faith who hear the good news of Jesus Christ for the first time in their lives. This is indeed exciting. Kindly pray with us that God would put an end to this virus spread and our outreach ministry with Hindu adults and children would resume soon.
