Greetings in Jesus Name
Just a few lines to tell you as to what’s going on in our lives!
I have “retired” and so has Karminie.
All of you may be aware that I’ve been out of the Church since December. Karminie retired in the end of October.
This was not in the time frame that we anticipated, therefore the transition was not very easy, but we a been waiting on the Lord for guidance regarding the future.
WHAT WE DO NOW
In the mean time, we have been busy, in Toronto in December and January having many meetings sand making contact with friends and relatives. We came back to Vancouver in January and we are having some meetings in homes from time to time. Usually on Tuesdays, we have a “conference-prayer” with a pastor in Jerusalem at 6.30 in the morning. This is interesting, and we meet him ( Pastor Sam) via the internet whenever we can. We also go to the Horizon Church (Foursquare) on Sundays and visit Calvary Church which is very close to our home. We also occasionally visit one or two homes, depending on the availability of the people.
WHAT WE WANT TO DO
We’ve been praying and thinking of missions to Sri Lanka after October or November. We are preparing ourselves for this in many ways. There are many details to think about, like raising the funds for missions, to get a church or an organisation to at least partially sponsor us, and re-establish connections with people back in Lanka. We have so many things at home to be taken care of. It is kind of overwhelming, but the Lord will undertake.
” You have many instructors in Christ but not many Fathers” ( 1 Corinthians 4: 15)
We have many” Spiritual children” who are having many churches and ministries all over in Sri Lanka, especially in the east in a place called “Batticaloa” . Batticaloa is where we pioneered our ministry for over 23 years. There is a need for mentoring, counselling, and personal pastoral care for pastors. Many of them regard me as their “father” and I am praying as we get in contact with them again, that we will be able to have conferences, on various subjects. We want to encourage them and help them in various ways.
For Wisdom and direction for future plans
For direction in re establishing connections
For suitable accommodation
For funds for our medical and other expenses
Please continue to pray for us as we plan to move forward in His Name.
God Bless you all
Inpam & Karminie
