Distribution of Hurricane Lantern in West Bengal
Muneer and All India Masihi Jamat has ministry in Murshidabad, where the workers and the believers living in such rural areas are totally neglected and out of electricity facility. They find difficulties to run their daily work at night, generally the believer used the local made tiny open lamp which is prone to set a fire at any time with a blink of an eye if proper care does not taken or handle carelessly. Seeing this pathetic situation in a courtesy visit to West Bengal in March 2010, Rev David Warnock had been so moved according to the Word of God from John 8:12 that Jesus proclaiming Himself “I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD” but these people are living in darkness, immediately he prayed to God and planned to do something for them which may workout at the time of night.
God answer his prayer and honored his commitment, on 7th July’10, Saturday Rev AsadMasih conducted a thanks giving service at Berhampore, Murshidabad district of West Bengal, where pastors, evangelists and believer from the different ministerial fields gathered together to worship and praise the God. In that auspicious occasion Rev Asad distributed the Kerosene Lantern among 28 families which came to them from Rev David as a token of gift. The entire beneficiaries thanked God and for the love and support by Rev David for that compassionate gift. Further, they testified that this lantern will remind them all their way to be the light of Jesus to other. Though it looks small but has great impact on them.
