Peter and Heather have several major ministries, including building relationships with the community through a music and language center. They also are involved in training church leaders, providing medical care to the underprivileged, and reaching out to university students through teaching English. Peter mainly serves as the pastor of Capital Bible Church, as well as a doctor overseeing the medical clinic. Please pray for the Malakar family as they seek to share Christ in a country and culture dominated by Hinduism.
