GWTW Missions: India
VISION FOR INDIA
by Umadevi Narimi
My name is Umadevi Narimi, and I am a woman minister from India. I have
two daughters – Kanthi Krupa and Jeevan Keerthi. My dear husband
is a laborer for daily wages along with helping me
labor in the Lord’s vineyard. My parents belonged to a Hindu
family where they worshiped idols and statues.
When I was a little girl, my parents
were very faithful idol worshipers; and my father
formerly was a priest in the Hindu temple, which was built
along with our grand-parents. Growing up, I
used to be an idol-worshiper.
However, in my parents’ home, I received
Jesus Christ as my personal savior when I heard
the gospel through one of the pastors and
was baptized at a very critical time in my life. I have faced many problems
from my parents and relatives who sent me
away from their home because I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal
savior. When I was baptized, I also received the baptism
of the Holy Spirit. God is so great that
later on, my family members and friends converted from the Hindu religion
to Christianity and became believers in Jesus Christ. How happy
we are for their decision.
a few years I was inspired by the Holy Spirit and was determined to
carry the gospel for those whose souls were perishing including my Hindu
brothers and sisters. Now I am preaching the word of God in
the midst of idol worshipers and perishing people. When
they hear the gospel, people come to feet of the Lord. Every week
we have street meetings, proclaiming
the gospel door-to-door, tract distribution, and sharing our testimony.
We have waited for such a long time for the people of God who will encourage
and comfort us as we give ourselves to Him as a women minister. We praise
God for His great plan for us, who has given us very precious people
at the right time.
What a blessed opportunity to have fellowship
with God’s Word to Women. In very little time, we
have been blessed abundantly in Him and
have learned many things that have
given us strength for women’s ministry through
the GWTW website which before we did not find
the encouragement and comfort like this website has given us. By God’s
grace and with the encouragement of
GWTW, we recently have started two, house churches.
We are thankful to almighty God and
to the GWTW intercessors. Our heartfelt desire is to look forward to
continuing our lives through God’s
ministry and in the blessed ministry
Our heartfelt desire is to equip and
strengthen many women preachers for our district. Many women have need
and thirst for word of God, and someone has met them secretly in their
homes. Here women preachers can enter into the houses of rich and poor.
They can motivate the people to come to His feet.
We need continually the word of God and
teachings and literature in our native language
of Telugu which we must translate and print continually.
Also, we need Bibles in our native language.
Your gift will allow us to conduct conferences
for women, to train them in the word of God, and send them out to the
people for His glory.
Here many young widows and HIV-infected
women, who have lost their husband to HIV/AIDS,
are wasting their precious time. We would love to give them self- employment
like handworks along with teaching of the word of God.
Here many children have lost their parents
with AIDS. We have great desire to establish
a children’s home for orphans as well as a home for the aged.
Not only do we thank you, but also we need your precious prayers, love,
and kind compassion support to continue this ministry.
