A Call To Fast For India

To our beloved family & friends. We thought we would update you on what's going on at RiverStone this week. We know 99.9% of you don't live here and won't be able to participate in the evening prayer meetings, but please pray about how the Lord might lead you to pray for India.

We love you,
Robert & Kristin

Over the past several weeks great persecution has broken out against Christians in isolated areas of India ruled by an extreme Hindu party. As a church, we support a missionary in one of those areas. Tammy H. has been living in southern India for the past 10 years serving the needs of at-risk, marginalized children. She gives them a family offering hope and unconditional love. The vision of her home is to "raise up children who are radically committed to Jesus Christ, who, empowered by His Holy Spirit, will spread the Gospel and change the nation of India."

Will you partner with us to pray and fast for Tammy and her home? Although they have not experienced persecution, they are in an area where threats have been made against local pastors and an area where threats have been made against local pastors and seminaries. One church was attacked and burned to the ground.

Please pray with us that:
  • God would keep Tammy's home safe from persecution.
  • The Hindu party would have a powerful encounter with Jesus.
  • That the national government would step in and intervene and stop attacks.
  • That Tammy and her children would be empowered to fulfill the stated vision of the home.
Please consider fasting a meal, a day, or the week, as the Lord guides you. The prayer room will be open from 7-9pm each night this week, starting Sunday (last night)...please join us when you can. The prayer leaders for each night are as follows:
Sunday, September 28th-Tom Tanner
Monday, September 29th-Tom Tanner
Tuesday, September 30th-Mark Nysewander
Wednesday, October 1st-Cory Hallett
Thursday, October 2nd-Terry Cantrell
Friday, October 3rd-Steve Hambrick
