Our ministry in India is continuing despite the COVID-19 outbreak and travel restrictions in the last year. Our staff members in India run a guest house called Mika Mocha, where they host Sabbath dinners, music nights, and classes for Israeli backpackers. Visitor Idan* said, “We Israelis usually feel scared and insecure when we travel in India. But this place (Mika Mocha) is where we feel safe and at home.” During the war in Israel in May, our staff members ministered to Rivka,* a new believer who has been personally affected. As they spoke with her, she exclaimed, “Jesus will protect me.”
Her rising faith in Jesus amidst troublesome times is an encouragement to keep witnessing to others faithfully. “We are continuing to minister to the few Jewish people around to see if they are well and need help.” They also helped an Israeli couple who tested positive for COVID-19 with food, groceries, and basic necessities.
