He prayed for the congregation and for the missionary family that serve here, Br. Rameshwar Prasad and his wife and closed the service with benediction. 

Bakthiarpur means ‘Abode of the godly or devoted’. As Psalm 4:3 says, “the Lord has set apart for Himself him who is godly” pray that the people of Bakthiarpur may come to know this true living God. Pray for this church at Bakthiarpur and the missionary family that the Gospel may spread to all the villages & towns in and around this place; that people may become disciples of Jesus and contribute to the transformation of their society.
