"Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

... If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.

The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings."

Isaiah 58:6-12

Please pray for Rev Rik Via and his son Jacob who are in India to preach the gospel.Below is their story

Greetings to you from India. My son Jacob and I are in Gujarat, India this week. India is one of the darkest nations in the world. Millions of people worship Hindu idols and shrines. They live in spiritual darkness every day of their lives. People literally starve to death while cows roam the streets eating whatever they desire. The people of India worship millions of false gods that leave them without any help or hope. That is why we are here. We are bringing the light of Jesus Christ into their spiritual darkness.

Please pray that the Lord will use us greatly during this ministry. We are involved in a spiritual battle for the souls of men and women. Your support and prayers make it possible for us to bring the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to these lost souls. Even in the midst of this great darkness, the light of our Savior is shining into the hearts of many of these people. You have a part in bringing this message of hope and salvation to this nation. We are so grateful to have your prayers and financial assistance for our ministry. May our Lord bless you greatly for your generous giving and your faithful praying for our ministry. We are so thankful for all you do. To God be the glory! Great things He has done!
