Eighty-three Baptisms in India
It is absolutely thrilling to watch God work in India. Almost every week, we receive reports that more WEI students have been baptized into Christ. Most of them have come from Hinduism.
For example, on October 30, we received an e-mail from Prabhu Kumar saying, “Today, Bro. Babu Rao, the preacher who is working with us as a WEI teacher at Thirumalagiri, has sent me a report of 3 people baptized a few days back. Among them, two are from WEI, and one is an old man from the local community.”
One of the converts, (B. Renuka) is a nurse who came to study the English course but finally decided to be baptized. Prabhu says, “This happened because of our English course. If our preacher will request her to listen to the Bible scriptures, certainly, she would not care for his words.”
The other girl, also, was “attracted to the English language. Our English language course pulled her to learn the Bible scriptures which led her to finally enter into the Body of Christ. “Thank God for giving an idea to our Hon. Founder to create such a wonderful course which is capable of changing their entire lifestyle as pure Christians along with sound doctrine.”
All three of these new Christians come from Hindu backgrounds. In November, Prabhu wrote, “By the grace of God, today our WEI teacher, Bro. Abraham baptized three of the local women into Christ. Among them, one is our WEI student. I attended this program at 5:00 p.m. He brought all of them to the local canal and baptized them into Christ.”

In December, Prabhu wrote, “A few days back, Bro. Chakravarthy, the man who is working with us at Tiruttani, Tamilnadu, sent three pictures of baptisms. He has converted three of his present batch of students. He is living among the ‘gentiles’ and trying day and night to teach and convert young souls from the local community.”
All three of the men that he baptized come from Hindu backgrounds. God is using WEI to lead Hindus to Jesus.
