Driven To My Knees
Abraham Lincoln once said, “I have been driven many times upon my
knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go.
My own wisdom and that of all about me insufficient for that day.”
That has resonated with me personally as of late. Not because things
are difficult, but rather because they are busy and overwhelming. So
much is going on at ServLife, and I find myself struggling to keep up.
There is always more to be done, and I am easily overwhelmed these
days. I am driven to my knees.
In this newsletter we want to give you a quick snapshot of all that is
going on so that you are in the loop and can pray and support what
God is doing. If you have any questions about any of this, always feel
free to contact me personally at email@example.com. Thank you for
your prayers and support.

India Children’s Home
The first floor of the children’s home in India is almost completed and
should be ready for the kids to move in before the end of the year. Pray
that it is completed soon and the $40,000 necessary to finish gets fully
funded. Donate today to support this work.
The son of India Director Albert Das, Paul Das, has been attending
college in California and is now entering his second year. God is working
in Paul’s life and giving him an education beyond what he is doing formally
in college. Paul is growing in his intimacy with Christ, and was baptized
in June of this year!
We are trying to fund Paul’s second year of college and need your help.

young man on to great things as God continues to shape and mold his heart
11 men and 2 women from all over Nepal have gathered in Kathmandu for
this year’s Pastor Training School. Director Lazarus Thulung describes
them as “very mature and growing in their passion for ministry. We are
busy in teaching and modeling them in their personal life.”
The India Pastor Training School has also started with 8 students. Please
pray for these students, that God would equip them for the ministry He has
called them to.
