The Central Region of GEMS invited missionaries with passion for literature and initiated the drive to write gospel tracts in Hindi. Three tracts are in the making through this effort to produce in-house gospel tracts in Hindi.
The gospel tract writing initiative was launched on 15th January 2016 by Bro. T. Emerson (Central Regional Director) and Bro. Peter Jayaraj (Zonal Superintendent, Sikaria Zone) facilitated the program. This initiative grew out of the realization of the effectiveness of Gospel tracts in reaching the people and the great need to produce them in the Hindi language. This start-up event was meant to create contemporary tracts with the local context and to cater to people of all age groups.
GEMS missionaries Bro.Rakesh, Bro.Yennar Singh, Bro. Suresh, Bro.Ravi Raj, Bro.Paul Bance, Bro.PC Johnson, Bro.Mariyosh, Bro.Selva, Bro.Christopher, Sis. Dara, Sis.Anita Franklin, Sis.Sumithra, Bro.Babu Rajaregan, Bro. Prabhakaran Bro. Saravanan, Bro. Sam, Bro. Antony were invited and with the exception of few everyone took part in this drive.
The team could put their thoughts together and write two tracts on that day, by the grace of God. It was also planned to produce more tracts for youths, women, urbanites, professionals and other categories of people, in the days to come. One another pre-written Hindi tract of GEMS was also brought to the table. The whole team was divided into four groups to achieve this end, for which Bro. Rakesh, Bro. Christopher, Bro. Peter Jayaraj and Sis. Sumithra were made as facilitators.
The team will gather in the first week of March to know the progress, to review and finalize the tracts to be printed. Pray that the Lord may bless this maiden initiative with His insights and inspiration to the team of writers and for these tracts to be contemporary, appealing and convictive; that people may know Jesus Christ and commit their lives to Him.
