BCM Pastor Sunil Munda’s Ministry Report
During the month of February 28th 2014, I visited Pastor Sunil Munda’s ministry area and his church. The church is 120 km from Amda BCM Jharkhand center. A special program was arranged which made my visit a memorable one. The program started at 11.00 AM. 150 believers, including children attended the program. They all came from different villages, from in and around Bajabada village, District – West Singhbana. Along with me (Rev. K.E.Joseph), BCM Jharkhand supervisor Rev. Fulchand Matho and Pastor Mata Purty graced the occasion. It was a beautiful experience to have been welcomed by the local believers in a traditional way, after which they all actively participated in the worship service with singing of hymns and praises to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Straight after the worship, we had the Bible reading session followed by the sharing of some wonderful testimonies which was really a blessing to have witnessed. Three people shared their personal experience of their walk with the Lord in a daily basis. It is interesting to note that all the believers come from the Hindu background and especially from the Mundari people groups. The worship service was conducted in the vernacular (Mundari language). Rev. K. E. Joseph in his address said that ‘God is doing mighty things, He is building His Church and He is using different people at different times to accomplish His purpose.’ (Math. 16: 13-18). Everyone present were really encouraged by the message and during the altar call 8 people accepted the Lord as their personal Savior and 18 people rededicated their life for the Master’s use.
Sunday School Children’s program:Pastor Sunil Munda’s Church children were celebrating the Sunday School annual program. The children presented some action songs and there was also a Bible memory verse competition. 8 children participated. Some gifts were distributed to the children to encourage them in their endeavor.
Baptism: After the special meeting 16 people look water baptism. I praise God for the ministry in this area which is progressing with each passing day. After being blessed with the two wheeler, Pastor Sunil Munda expanded his ministry to 9 villages, which is quite far from his church and residence.
Laying of the Foundation Stone for Church Building: – Pastor Sunil Munda is conducting the worship service in a believer’s house every Sunday. Now the house owner provided a piece of land for the construction of a church. Rev. K.E. Joseph and the Area Supervisor, Rev. Ful Chand Matho and the elders of his church prayed and dedicated the land for the glory of the Lord. Rev. K.E.Joseph laid the foundation stone for the Church building.
