From Empart –
At our regional pastor’s conference last week, Jossy Chacko, founder of Empart, met an older man who has been pastoring with us for a number of years. This man is illiterate! Jossy asked him how this was possible, how did he learn and study the Word to prepare his messages?
Pastor Satish* explained that he sits with his daughter and has her read passages to him over and over until he has them committed to memory. This gives him the Scripture to preach and teach from.
How effective is this method, you may ask? Well, as of last week, Pastor Satish has over half of the entire New Testament memorized! What’s more, he has planted 35 churches and baptized over 1000 believers into the faith! Maybe some of our pastors here in the US should adopt this methodology.
We are so thankful for your prayers. As you carry the needs of pastors like Satish before the throne of grace, remember that your prayers are a vital link in the effectiveness of their work.
