PASTOR’S BLOG
Worshipping with our brothers and sisters, mostly Hindu converts in the remotest parts of India, has been a wonderful experience.  They hardly have anything to live on.  Even women work all day long in the hot sun for less than three dollars a day and their little children come and help after school.  The land is dry and yields very little.  Yesterday’s worship was in a dry hut veranda that a converted Hindu priest has graciously given for our believers to worship in because the Lord Jesus Christ rolled his burdens away.  During worship, to illustrate that Salvation is a free gift from God, I held a five hundred rupee note and asked, “Who wants this money?”  A teenage girl sitting in front said,“If you give it, we will take it and put it back in the offering.”  Mind you that is more than three days wages for them.  They seem so content and their devotion to God is just amazing.  As one woman told me a year ago, “I don’t want money.  I want God.”  Their hunger and thirst for God is clearly visible as they worship.  This trip is in preparation for our church’s first  evangelistic mission trip in 30 years.  Pray that the Lord of the harvest will send you and me as reapers between October 10 and 20.  I am in Mumbai today traveling for over two hours to worship with our believers  Nine sites are being prepared for you to harvest in October.  Truly the harvest is great but laborers are few. 
 
Shalom, Shalom!
