Dear praying brothers and sisters in Christ,
I am Anil Waghmare pastoring Gods Church in Digha village, Navi Mumbai, India since 2007. As I planted this church I have invested my twelve years and by the grace of God now we have thirty families attending every Sunday church service, and church is growing. And also from last five years I have been planting other branches in remote areas which lead to have nine branches. It is my privilege to say God is using me and my wife to extending His kingdom. We seems to be moving in good direction as things begin opening up again here.
Now days we are having second waved of corona infections faster than last year but people are not afraid here, normally living life, to see this I give thanks to the Lord for not having spirit of fear. Every Sunday new people are knocking the door for prayers and God is building their faith, even we are restricted to keep physical distancing in the church building.
We arrange prayer meetings everyday for different categories like women’s prayer meeting, children’s prayer meetings and fasting and healing prayers for sick people. In 2012 we could finish construction of church building at Digha, Navi Mumbai where we are living now.
After that we prayerfully started with the education project called “slum schools” for poor and needy children in the seven different slums where God is doing great miracles and we could win hundreds of souls and planted churches, we always praise Almighty God for His divine intercession.
Now we have nine churches and nine missionary families are dedicated to stand with me to extend the kingdom of God. As I am leading these branches, I train our nine families to do ministries effectively to bear fruits, and our church is growing spiritually and physically.
The vision of our church is to teach, reach and preach. God is transforming many communities. We could reach people and children by helping poor and orphans through education project and health care projects like free health checkups and giving medicines with the help from precious and generous donations and fervent prayers of righteous men and women of God. We need partners for sustaining the works we have started in the fields. Please be with us and stand with us in this pandemic times we are in need of your prayers and contributions.
This is my wife Savita who is a prayer warrior and backbone of our ministry here. We believe all our needs will be provided through His riches and glory as we have experiences for last fifteen years in the ministry. Please be partner with this humble ministry and help our missionary families and projects to preach gospel and glory of God. You can pray, contribute and share our needs in your church and friends. We believe the Lord of lords and King of kings will provide everything. God Bless You.
