John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone.

Beginning in 2008 the vision and bible school that God so graciously gave Wade Taylor beginning in 1968 came to an abrupt end, falling into the ground and dying.-

We now wait for God to raise up and bring forth His seed of promise in another, that the vision fail not.

Summer 1986
Training Leaders in India
at the Good Samaritan Institute
New Delhi, India

We were one in spirit with the late Glady Raj, founder of the Good Samaritan Institute, and with his vision for the training of leaders for ministry in India. The Institute, and this vision, continues under the able leadership of Joy Thomas, whose article appears in this Banner.

We want to share with you, a recent report we received from Brother Joy Thomas, concerning the Lord's work in India, for your thanksgiving and for your prayers.

Leaders from several States gathered recently in New Delhi for a Leaders Conference. Bro Joy reports how "we sought the Lord in prayer, to meet with us in a fresh, new way: and He was faithful to answer us". The Word of the Lord challenged us to come up into a higher realm in Him. There was an impartation of vision and multiplication of ministry as our Lord sovereignty moved among us...these were glorious days in our lives!"

The Good Samaritan Institute is a local church with a vision for the developing of mature Christian leadership with revelation of God's purposes for His Church today. An 18 month Leadership Training Course is offered, with the aim of producing "a Christ-likeness of character in preparation for ministry. "The work was founded by the late Glady Raj, and continues under the able leadership of Joy Thomas.

The Good Samaritan Fellowship, though spiritually rich, has an ongoing financial need in order to continue the Bible School. Brother Joy Thomas is not one to make known their needs, and only did so at this time most reluctantly.

We urge our readers to support this worthy ministry with prayers and contributions. Any contributions for this ministry can be sent to PINECREST, and indicate it is for the Good Samaritan Institute in India. All gifts for this ministry will be sent in full to them in India.
