Believers of Balumath Church Badly Beaten and Continuously Persecuted in Jharkhand

The believers of GEMS church at Balumath who come from Chakla village were badly beaten for resisting Ghar Wapsi.


Twenty families from Paduwa Tola of Chakla village are believers who come to the GEMS church at Balumath. On 20thDecember 2017 the Sangh affiliates organized a Ghar Wapsi (forced conversion) and five families succumbed to it.


The rest of the families resisted; so the Sangh affiliates organized one more Ghar Wapsi on 9th January 2018 and all the families resisted it again. So on 10th January the Sangh members instigated the Sarna Samithimembers and bet the resisted believers very badly. Bro. Philip Tirkey, the missionary pastor of Balumath and Bro. Santhappan, Zonal Superintendent of PEACE 1 Zone encouraged the believers and accommodated them at Bro. Santhappan’s house that night.


Chakla village comes under Chandwa police station and when the believers went and complained, the police called those who bet them and pushed for compromise. But when the believers persisted and went along with the Mukhiya of the village on 13th January the Sub-Inspector Prabhakar Munda filed FIR against the perpetrators.

The newspapers have published a false report that the Christian believers of Paduva Tola are converting the people by alluring them. (Below is the news published on 13th Jan 2018 in Jagran.)


There has been continuous persecution of believers of Balumath –


Balumath church believers have been continuously attacked and persecuted. 
Praythat the believers may stand strong and steadfast in the faith. 
Pray for the believers from Chakla village to continue to grow in the Lord. 
Prayfor the opposers to know the love of Jesus and to come to Christ.

GEMS Leadership Training Centre and Course Inaugurated in Bihar

Leadership Training Centre (LTC) was inaugurated at Sikaria, Bihar for the glory of God to train indigenous & cross cultural GEMS missionaries inand for leadership.


The inauguration of the Leadership Training Centre was held at Timothy Bible College in Sikaria, Bihar on 5thJanuary 2018.


The program began with prayer by Sis. Rupalekha Jebakumar (Managing Trustee). The participants were led in praise & worship by Bro. Bell Shath (Revival Ministries Coordinator).


Bro. Paul Bance (Training Coordinator) anchored the program and asked Bro. Rakesh (Associate Director-CP) to pray for Bro. Christopher who is given the leadership responsibility of LTC. Bro. Paul presented the structure of LTC that it will be a three months’ residential course with two months’ gap between every month in which the missionaries will go to their fields. 15 Area Leaders & 5 Department Heads of GEMS will be taken in every batch and along with them there will be room for leaders from other organizations who will be recommended by Hi-CHAL (Hindi Churches Alliance).
Bro. Anand (Associate Director-Institutions) and Bro. Cornelius (Zonal Superintendent, B1) prayed for this course and for the participants.


The General Secretary Bro. D. Augustine Jebakumar shared about the void of leadership and the need for it. He also mentioned about Dr. Rajendran’s (Ex-General Secretary, IMA) writing in IMA’s 40thyear souvenir appreciating GEMS for its on-the-job training. He also mentioned about GEMS’ future plans to start an online course & the upcoming leadership training centre for Women. A gist of the message that he shared –


Without a leader there will not be any Voice or Goal or Direction. Leadership teaching & training of GEMS should be based on the Word of God. And the aim should be to enable the leaders to listen to the God’s voice. During Elijah’s time God did not send him to the prophetical colleges of Bethel & Carmel to choose the successor, but to the field, to a farmer Elisha! We need intellectuals like Paul and fishermen like Peter; but both listened to the voice of God.

In Moses & Joshua and in Elijah & Elisha mentorship we see that along with people’s acceptance and more than that God’s divine approval is essential (Numbers 27:15-19; 2 Kings 2:14,15). In the team of Paul & Barnabas we see Paul proving his calling through God’s guidance (Acts 13). Even though Nehemiah came from the palace, he could work with difficult & corrupt people because God stirred their hearts, as a sign of divine approval.


The candidates of the first batch were asked to come forward and as the leaders laid their hands upon them Bro. K. Gunasekaran (Director, Hi-CHAL) prayed for them. Bro. Christopher thanked everyone for participating and Bro. T. Emerson (Executive Director) closed the inauguration ceremony with prayer.



Prayfor the Leadership Training Centre of GEMS that it would train the mission leaders to be God’s voice for the church & the nation. 
Pray for all the tutors to receive fresh inspiration & anointing to train according to God’s direction.
Pray for this course to instil & propel the leadership to fulfil the needed purposes of God for this time.

GEMS Annual Fasting Prayer was conducted in Sikaria, Bihar which was attended by GEMS missionaries of all Regions, Zones, Departments, Institutions & Projects.


The Annual yearend fasting prayer was conducted from 27th to 29th December 2017 at GEMS Auditorium in Sikaria, Bihar. It was conducted in the theme ‘Restored Hearts, Revived Services’.


The meeting began with an introduction to the theme shared by the General Secretary of GEMS Bro. D. Augustine Jebakumar. He showed the nature of true fasting quoting Isaiah 58 and presented what God hates – unpleasing life to God, busy in lip-service worship, hypocritical life & fake humility. From Micah 6:8 and Colossians 2:18,23 he showed how practical humility looks like.


He shared in the morning devotions with focus on humility as a necessity for restoration & revival. He showed from the lives of David (1 Sam 18:17-23; 24:14; 26:20; 2 Sam 7:18), Abraham (Gen 18), Mephibosheth (2 Sam 19:30) & John the Baptist (John 1:21,27; Matt 11:14) the true nature of humility. Bro. Anand (Associate Director-Institutions) & Bro. K. Gunasekaran (Diector-HiChal) led the people in prayer of commitment.


Pr. Robert Simon (Carmel Ministries, Chennai) was invited as the guest speaker and he shared on the theme verse from Psalm 85 and expounded on restoration & revival. Sharing from the context of this Psalm he shared how Israelites who were delivered from Egyptian bondage because of their rebellion & unpleasing life went into Babylonian captivity. He likened it to the life of a saved person who gets into bondage and cries out for deliverance and restoration. He showed through other Psalms 137, 128 & 96 the life of one who fears the Lord and walks in His ways.


The participants were divided into groups and questionnaires were given on the topics of Repent, Restore & Revive to discuss among themselves for introspection. Click this link to download & use the Questionnaire in English & Hindi –


People were led in praise & worship by Bro. Bell Shath, Bro. Noble, Bro. Arjun Karmali & Bro. Praveen Das along with the choir and the music team.

Rakesh (Associate Director, CP) shared on the social, political, economical & religious issues of India and Bro. Mariyosh shared on the prevailing persecution of Christians in India.


On the final day the Executive Director Bro. T. Emerson exhorted all the missionaries to remember the laid foundation of GEMS, Evangelism (1 Cor 3:10) & encouraged that persecution will only bring forth a great harvest (Exodus 1:12). He shared on the role that everyone needs to play in this time – Prayer (Is 62:7), Enabling all believers to proclaim the gospel (Acts 8:4), Develop team work (Acts 13:1), Missionary attitude & commitment (1 Cor 4:9).

He showed the important conditions from the context of the verse – to be holy, to keep the covenant, to give the first fruits to God and to not touch that which is set apart for God.


Prayfor all the missionaries of GEMS who committed towards restoration that it may lead to a true and greater revival in all the ministries.

Christmas and New Year Greetings from GEMS Family

Christmas Greetings from Bro. D. Augustine Jebakumar, the General Secretary of GEMS.


Dear Prayer Partner in Christ,

Christmas Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! 
Let us remember that He was born on this earth to unite us to God the Father and to Himself in a relationship and that ‘‘He is not ashamed to call us as His brethren’’ (Heb 2:11). We have come to the end of the year and it is time for us to evaluate our lives and prepare for the forthcoming year, just as businesses audit their profits and losses and prepare themselves. This being the Christmas season, it is paramount that we make our celebrations meaningful and purposeful in such a way as to proclaim Jesus as much as possible to those who do not know Him and bring them into a relationship with God.

As we grapple with the prevailing socio-political scenarios in India, we may wonder how one can possibly proclaim or celebrate the birth of Jesus. Over the years, we have witnessed the cancer of vandalism, vigilantism, hatred and persecution spreading, perpetrated by vested interests, aligned to certain narrow ideologies, and at times, overtly or covertly supported by politicians for their own narrow ends. Their mindless actions breed intolerance and divisions in the society leading to lack of peace and breaking of unity and relationships. In such dire situations we must remember the truth that God sent His dear Son to be born on earth to restore relationships. ‘‘Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift’’ (2 Cor 9:15).

How can we deal with this important subject of restoring relationships? It begins with reconciliation. Remember what the Lord said, ‘‘Therefore if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and present your offering’’ (Mat 5:23-24). How many of us remember this exhortation?

It is typical for Christians, during this season, to send gifts to one another...

Sis. Roseline Rani w/o Bro. Rajadurai (Sikaria) passed away on 12th December 2017. The funeral service took place at Mudalur today, 13th December.


GEMS missionary Sister Roseline Rani (aged 57) served with GEMS for 21 years. She served in the Hospitality Services department in Sikaria, Bihar as in-charge of the Canteen. She was diagnosed with terminal stage Pancreatic Cancer, in October 2017 and was under treatment.


She passed away at 5:57 PM on 12thDecember 2017. The funeral service was conducted today, 13th December 2017 at 11:30 AM at South Street, Pudur, Mudalur.


Sis. Roseline Rani hailed from Puthantharuvai, a place near Thisayanvilai of Tuticorin district, Tamil Nadu. After her father passed away when she was a teen, she came closer to Christ. After marriage as a family they moved to Pondicherry for work. In 1996 they committed to go as missionaries in one of Bro. Augustine Jebakumar’s meetings and joined GEMS in March 1996. After serving at Karwandiya for few months they moved to Sikaria.


She was a woman of prayer; a loving mother & a caring person. Though they faced many issues as a family and ministry, her prayers kept them going and enabled them to continue to serve the Lord. Sis. Rani was known for her hospitality and service mindedness. She would not turn anyone away and would somehow find a way to fulfil the needs of the people who visited the canteen. Her love & concern for people’s welfare won the hearts of many.



GEMS family is deeply saddened at the demise of Sis. Roseline. She is survived by her husband Bro. Rajadurai, daughter Jebamani and two sons, Lalith & Sam Raj. Please pray for the comfort of her family members.
