Open Doors

Dear Ministry Partner,

When I took this position as Regional Director of India Subcontinent, all I knew was the vast area and space I would need to cover. It was an opportunity to get to know many groups of people surrounding the Gospel. They are people groups which have their own languages and cultures. It’s always astounding to see how God would connect me with a native person that is open to lead their people in discipleship. It was God opening the doors then and it is God who is still opening the doors now. What is occurring in the nations is because God is still doing what only He can do! Blessed be the name of our God!

God is Holy, God is True, God has the key of David, God opens the door and no man shuts it, and God shuts it which no man can open it. Revelation 3:7

This last month I have cultivated relationships alongside some people

groups for the first time; Bhutia, Tamil, and Sinhalese. We have courageously walked through each door to spread the Gospel among the nations. With your support we can continue to do the Lord’s work. The result here will be great. God is to be glorified! Read on below…

I appreciate you,

Regional Director of the India Subcontinent

Testimony from Pakistan

"Greetings in the almighty name of Jesus Christ! I am a 55-year-old pastor who has been teaching and preaching since 2002 with little formal Bible training. By the grace of God, I have taken the chance for this wonderful training through CCI. I have been learning very well while studying. Course 5 is providing me with very good Bible doctrine, and I am growing in new ways. I am thankful to the Lord for this great opportunity in my life, for this CCI training, and for my ministry."

Here is Pastor S teaching Course #4: Preaching Biblical Messages & Pastoral Ministry in northern Bangladesh and southern part of Bangladesh.

Testimony from Bangladesh

Mr. M lost his wife ten years ago and has since struggled to trust God, due to various family struggles. He takes care of his two daughters and widowed mother, but often avoided attending church and praying.

In an attempt to help Mr. M, counseling was provided, and prayers were said. He now attends CCI training and takes the classes seriously. He completed the Old Testament, which inspired him. He related to many of the leaders who God called and who also faced struggles. During our discussions of God's calling and their responsibilities, he repented in class and began a transformation. Now, he takes proper care of his children and mother. He regularly attends church and mentors and guides the church's youth. He's a faithful and reliable person in the church with a vision to share the Gospel with our ministry. He's grateful for the class that changed his life and helped him see his vision of being a servant of Jesus Christ who impacts the community.

We are thankful to God and CCI Ministry for embarking on a journey of discipleship in Bangladesh. We hope that the story of Mr. M's journey as a servant of Jesus Christ for Bangladesh will be a true testimony and a significant one.

North India

North India's Area Coordinator conducted a two-day Teacher Training Workshop (TTW) with fourteen pastors and church leaders. Five new teachers will begin training others in October.

Teachers Pastor A and Y are going for another round, making disciples beginning with Course #1.

At the border of Bhutan, I conducted a Teacher Training Workshop (TTW) to strategically start classes along the border. I had been praying about ministry among them for 3 years already. A mutual friend of one pastor below helped me to be able to train them. We can do more together!!!

Testimony from a student in North India

"Greetings in Jesus’ name! I was born into and grew up in a Hindu family. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and Lord three years ago, and have been faithfully attending church services ever since. When my pastor shared about the CCI courses with me, I joined the class because I was already interested in learning the Word of God deeply. Now, I am taking the course and finding it to be truly wonderful! I have learned several things in Course 1, including Bible Study Methods and Rules of Interpretation. Thank you for providing such wonderful Bible courses in our state. May the Lord continue to bless you all!"

Testimony from a Graduate in Nepal

"I lead a women's group in central Nepal and I also help in our house fellowship. I have been involved in both ministries since I was 17 years old. I have undergone formal training and attended non-formal seminars, but they were not so effective in my ministries. Although they helped me learn lessons and granted knowledge, they did not teach me skills.

Last April, I joined the CCI training and at first, I thought it would be similar to other teaching or training programs. However, as I learned Book #4 (Preaching Biblical Messages), it changed my perspective about teaching. It not only provided me with knowledge and lessons, but also granted me effective skills for fruitful ministry. It helps me to determine my teaching goal and the reason for each message. These are essential things for biblical preaching.

This training not only helps me but also my church. I am more effective now when I teach and filled with joy and excitement for future ministry. I am eager to use my newly acquired skills and gifts to change people's lives for His glory. I am grateful to CCI Nepal for providing me with this great opportunity."

Sri Lanka

The ground is fertile in Sri Lanka. One church family sent me and Akash to explore what God was already doing. After we rode four hours, I shared CCI’s mission and vision with 8 pastors. These pastors want more… Support this great work!


God opened the door for me to travel to Bhutan (funds were provided through our church family's VBS). After a 4-hour drive, I shared CCI's mission and vision with 5 underground pastors. Will you help to support this work as it becomes what the Lord desires?
