-MISSION MINISTRY OF THE MONTH-
Every month we highlight a missionary to specifically pray for and encourage.
Ramana and Seemon - Upper Room Ministries
Upper Room Ministries in Cuddalore, India, cares and provides for and places orphan girls with families in the local community. The girls learn about having a relationship with God and are assisted in going to college or getting a job when they must age out of the orphanage at age 18.
-Pray that their Christian faith not only grows and remains a part of their daily life when they reach adulthood but that their light will shine and lead others to Christ.
-Pray also for Reverend Rajan’s widow Ramana and her work with the girls, and for Seemon, Rev Rajan’s successor, in his studies at Bible College and his preaching to and work in the local villages.
