MTM Leadership Conference, (JAN 12th – 16th, 2015)
RAYAGADA, INDIA, ODISHA STATE
Vision beyond our borders here at MTM is taking us to Rayagada, India for the first conference this year. Lord willing, Saturday evening January 10th, the MTM team is scheduled to fly to Kolkata connecting on to Bhubaneshwar for an all night train the next evening into Rayagada. India is the second most populous country with over 1.2 billion people. Odisha state, formerly Orissa, is estimated to be only 2.1% Christian.
Where Is Rayagada ?

Editor’s note: Though called the “ministry team”, not all of us will be attending the conference physically. Dear Sister Naomi will be attending in Spirit and in prayer from her recliner in Chiang Mai. By the Grace of God and your prayers, she is recovering from an accident and a very major surgery following. Thank you, Naomi, for your demonstration of faith in our sovereign God!
Brother Will Jenkins has traveled here from Rossville, Indiana, to bless this team and the Odisha Brethren with his heart and passion for missions in Asia. Having just graduated from Purdue University, he is in route to an undisclosed location.
Please be in prayer for:
1. Sister Naomi as she stays back to heal and pray. Pray for emotional and spiritual protection, as well as her physical healing. Pray for her nurse and housemaid Sister Teresa Nisly from Minnesota, while Raymond is leading the conference in India.
2. The team’s spiritual protection as we enter by the name, power and authority of Jesus into multi generational spiritual darkness.
3. The team’s physical safety and health as we travel, eat, and sleep.
4. Brother Raymond and myself as we prepare and present God’s Word to some of the dearest church leaders on earth.
5. The team to demonstrate true servant leadership with a spirit that will learn Jesus more perfectly at the Odisha Brethren’s feet.
6. Jesus Christ to be lifted up, worshiped and magnified, for He alone is WORTHY!!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR ON GOING SUPPORT, TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
MTM Assistant Director, Merle Flory
