Last Friday we received a phone call from Pastor Kuo Thai Chiang in Kolkata, India. He shared with us that the Covid outbreak in his region is very dangerous and critical.
We have known Pastor KT and his wife Florence for many years and have deep respect for their faithful ministry in serving the church in Kolkata and the two schools they run.
We, together with the Fellowship of Alliance Chinese Churches in Europe and Surroundings (FACCES) have been on missions partnership with the Chinese churches in Kolkata over the past years.
The two Chinese churches in Kolkata are the only two Chinese churches in India. Pastor KT is the only Chinese pastor of these two churches, the two churches also run two full-day English-speaking private schools (kindergarten, primary, middle and high school) with a total of 3,000 students.

The need for prayer of intercession is desperately needed in India (Kolkata) today.
Below is the list of intercession items from Pastor KT:
- India (Kolkata)
1.) Need for Oxygen and medical treatments for Covid patients. Medical aids from many countries have reached our country but the clearance is taking time. Pray for wisdom and logistic demands to be able to transport the medical aids to the needy areas.
2.) Immediate building of oxygen plants to meet the increasing need of the people who are dying due to lack of oxygen in hospitals.
3.) Wisdom upon leaders to unite and support one another, rather than indulge in regional politics.
4.) Right and Appropriate Decisions to be made concerning Covid Standard Operating Procedures (SOP).
5.) Maintenance and restrict implementations of law and order during Lockdown
6.) Citizens to be responsible in following SOP
7.) Vaccines to be made available for all soon.
B. Churches & Schools:
1.) Please pray for comfort and peace upon bereaved family members (We have lost two from Grace Ling Liang Church)
2.) Pray for those in the hospitals and nursing homes battling Covid.
3.) Those who are tested positive and have quarantined themselves at home
4.) Elderly who are living on their own, as children are all oversees.
5.) Teachers of both our schools (Grace Ling Liang English School and Ling Liang High School) who are tested positive.
6.) Pastor and ministers of the different churches of our city, who have been infected.
7.) Christians of different churches coming together to pray and help each other
"Hear Our Prayers, O Lord, Incline Thine ear to us, and grant us Thy Peace. Amen"
