Psalm 145:1-4, RSV
I will extol thee, my God and king, and bless thy name for ever and ever. Every day I will bless thee, and praise thy name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall laud thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.

Pray for the Hindus of Mauritius to recognize the greatness of God and tell of his works to others.

Hindus in Mauritius

by PD

Rachit, a Mauritian, had never felt the peace and happiness he was experiencing as he prepared to be baptized by his new Christian friend Robert. He and his wife and children had been practicing Hindus all their lives until they came to accept Jesus through the witness of Robert and his friends. After asking the Lord to forgive him of his sins, especially all the years he had worshiped hundreds of Hindu gods, Rachit said, “I accept Jesus as my Savior and Lord.” Then Robert said, “I baptize you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Smiling Rachit came up from the water and motioned to his wife, Meesha and their three children to come into the water. Robert baptized each of them. After this another family was baptized. The Christians rejoiced with the new believers, and they made plans to come together each week for a Bible study.
Over 47 percent of the Mauritians are practicing Hindus. An evangelical team has found success in reaching some of them through helping the poor with outreach programs related to education. Home churches are growing as believers are training others to share their testimonies and start Bible studies.
