Excerpts from Bro. Augustine Jebakumar’s memoir ‘No One Else’.
One afternoon, in the month of September, 1973, when I was praying in my room, I heard a voice saying, “Go to Bhabua, I will build My church there.” I made enquiries and learnt that it was a small town 85 km away from Dehri-On-Sone and that only one bus plied along that route…
I conveyed my prayer partners in Tamil Nadu what the Lord had promised me and that I was going to conduct a crusade there by the end of January, though I had not yet seen the place! By faith, I clung to God’s word…
It was the first time in the history of the town that a Christian meeting was being organized. The very first day saw more than 500 people, all from other faiths, in attendance. The Spirit of God brought the people just as He had brought the animals and the birds into Noah’s Ark…
The birth of a church in Bhabua had thus began on a promising note and continued to grow in leaps and bounds, baptizing new believers. They were on fire, preaching the Gospel and leading many to Christ. Many college students heard the Gospel and a few, touched by Christ’s love, committed their lives to Him…


Pray for the GEMS Action Centre at Bhabua and the work through the Western Region. Pray that God’s plans for this part of Bihar may be fulfilled through this action centre. Pray for all the leaders, missionaries and believers of this region.
