‘Jingle Bells in Rohtas Hills’ Brings the Joy of Christmas to Mountain People

During the season of Christmas the members of GEMS church at Sikaria walked several miles on the Rohtas/Kaimur hills & in the foothills in seven teams and shared the Gospel to thousands of people.

Realizing Isaiah 52:7 “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news”, more than 200 people; missionaries, their children, discipleship trainees, home children went up on the hills from 23rd to 25th Dec 2014 to share the message of Christmas. Each team led by two members were taken in buses to GEMS field on the Kaimur hills, Jadappa from where they split and each team went on its assigned route.

In one of the teams the 31/2 year old Agnes, the daughter of Br. Gideon Durai walked 22 kms at a stretch with a backpack which inspired the other team members.

Every team had unique experiences. Neither long distance walks, discomfort in stay nor the biting cold, nothing could quench the spirit of the people, who were minded to share the good news to the hilly tribes.

Songs in the tribal languages of Oraon, meaningful skits, choreographies were used along with Bible messages.

They shared the good news to children, youths, adults, old people and also to the CRPF soldiers & officers. The teams stayed along with the field missionaries’ families and in the houses of the believers.

Even the children were involved in sharing the Gospel. Sweets and Bible verse printed cards were distributed to the people.

On the final day all the teams meaningfully celebrated Christmas along with the local GEMS church.

Br. T. Emerson (Central Regional Director) planned out the details and made this mass outreach possible with the help of all the missionaries of Rohtas Zone. Pray for the efforts of this outreach on the Rohtas/Kaimur hills to pave result in the days to come; the sown seeds of the gospel may transform the lives of the people and make them disciples of Jesus Christ.
