Living the New, Abundant and Eternal Life

 

 
 
September 17, 2017
 
I was glad when they said unto me,
Let us go into the house of the Lord.
Psalms 122:1
 
 
 
In both morning services this Sunday
Missionary Beth Decker will be sharing.
 

Beth Decker was born in Darjeeling, India to missionary parents, Olive and Howard Hawkes.  She has spent most of her life on the Indian sub-continent.  Beth and her late husband, Dale, were missionaries in Bangladesh for many years.  They also lived in Kolkata, India for over 10 years.  In both countries the Deckers worked among the Bengali people.

Beth and Dale have two sons and a daughter.  All three are married, and she has five grandsons and five granddaughters. For over ten years Beth worked into the largest red light district in Kolkata.  She helped to start evening care centers for children in the district, a district Sunday School, a girls home, and vocational center for women wanting to start a new life.  Six years ago the Deckers agreed to launch a training site for new missionaries coming to India.

Within a few months of that decision the Lord took Dale home.  Beth returned to India and launched the first Live-Dead basecamp, training young missionaries to plant Christ communities among the unreached. To date, over 100 people have been trained and 12 new multi-national, multi-generational teams are living and proclaiming Jesus in unreached places of India. You can read their stories in a new Live-Dead India book written by Beth:  "The Common Table:  Inviting Strangers to Become Family".
