The Electrifying Ecclesiastes Bible Study

Duke Jeyaraj lead a Bible Study on the book of Ecclesiastes in his base on the 4th July. Over 20 people, young and old, corporates and students, from various churches and two countries (India and Cameroon) attended this rare study that takes place once in a month. Shruti Joy and Vinup Joseph lead worship. Later Joy conducted a 'blanket' game that made people laugh and learn each other's names. Then came Duke with his study replete with illustrations from the contemporary world. Duke talked about the emptiness the Uruguayan Goalie felt during the Ghana-Uruguay World Cup Quarterfinals in his 90 minute presentation. At the end of the study a few people accepted Jesus as Savior. As the participants ate snacks sponsored by Monica Chauhan, Duke answered some questions that were raised. The outline that Duke used can be got by emailing him at He used the name E-c-c-l-e-s-i-a-s-t-e-s as a short form for the message of the Book! The next study is on the book of Song of Songs at his Kanajiguda base on 8 August. You would want to be there! Call 9441352433 for more details.

The June Midnight Month-end Prayer

About 15 people from the Corporate World hailing from different churches (including Pearl City, Aggies, Methodists, Lutheran) met between 11 pm to 1 am on the 30 June-1 July at Duke's base in Hyderabad. They entered the new month in God's presence. Joy lead in worship along with Joseph who was on the guitar. There was a time for testimonies which the youth used to give God the glory for what He did in the month of June for them. As the clock struck 12 midnite the youth were praising God. After they entered the new month, Duke brought a promise word saying, "Nothing is impossible with God!" He explained what all were impossible for God. Not only that, Duke explained the conditions for these promises to be fulfilled. In the time of prayer that followed prophetic words flowed from the mouth of Evan and Sunita. The youth were encouraged and charged up to face the new month. The next mid-night prayer would be held in the same place on 30 July, Saturday, 11 pm. Call 9441352433 for more details.

Duke n Evan Celebrate Their 9th Wedding Anniversary With Volunteers

Our volunteers, 10 of them, came to our home on 9th July and made our 9th wedding anniversary celebrations unforgettable. We answered questions about each other, played games (tie tying for Evan, hair arranging for Duke), garlanded each other and exchanged vows. A KFC treat (sponsored by them) followed. The volunteers brought in a huge collage of our pictures photo framed. Duke shared from Isaiah 59:16 to encourage them. Duke's ministry is uniquely volunteer-driven. The article by Duke, "How I Met And Married My Wife" was put up on our website,
