I live in Chennai, India. I need advice from you as a brother in Christ.
My house is surrounded by many Hindu families. We stay in the first floor front flat and the other three flats are tenanted presently by Hindu families.
This morning after my private prayer, I had a very strong thought that once the flat is vacated, I have to turn it into a prayer hall.
The prayer room can be used by our family when there is a requirement of worship / prayer, for my neighbors, for believers who want to pray, Bible study, fellowship, etc. There is a prayer meeting going on by a believer every Sunday evening nearby wherein they can conduct it in the prayer room.
Also, I have vacant plots around the city I could turn into prayer halls and the local neighbors from any religion can walk in, pray, understand the gospel, and come to Christ. And it can be used by local believers for prayer, fellowship, worship, etc.
My plan is not to collect any offerings by the grace of God and this place should never become a commercial activity. My intention is not to take an offering and depend only on our Lord Jesus Christ for the needs.
My wife may not like this idea since I spoke to her once and she is not for it. I have not told her yet about this latest idea. I want to fast and pray, and then tell her after the time is ripe. Please pray to our Lord and give your valuable advice on this idea.
I need proper prayer & advice from believers to take this forward.
