Muslims of Uttar Pradesh, India

(OO-tar pra-DESH) – Thank the Lord for local harvest workers who are involved in the work of kingdom advancement! Aquila and another brother had the privilege of training and coaching four strong Muslim-background believers who are based in another state in the northern part of India. Baba, a brother from a neighboring state, is also taking part in that work. Ishak, one of the brothers who attended the training, stepped forward for baptism, a result of the Lord working through Yakub, another brother, in his life. This is the fruit of success, as Muslim-background believers are training other Muslim-background believers and those being trained are themselves leading Muslims to faith in Jesus and subsequently toward baptism! Pray that these harvest workers will continue to be steadfast in the task before them as they serve where the Lord has them. May they seek local ownership of the task among every people and every place, for the glory of the Lord.
