Day 11 Mission to Minister to the Persecuted Church
Teach Stand Firm in Nellore, Andra Pradesh
Time: October 23 at 10:30 pm – October 24 4:30 am CDT (October 24 9:00 am – 3:00 pm India)
Nellore Stand Firm Pastors Conference
We had a great day of ministry in Nellore, Andra Pradesh today. There were about 160 pastors present today. They were very receptive to the teaching of the Word. We expect more tomorrow. Thank you for your prayers. God has graciously given me the physical strength to teach all day in 90 degree heat with no air conditioning. Caleb has been a great blessing and help. Pray for him as he has developed a cold. Raja and Sheeba are the glue that holds this all together working with the local pastors who have coordinated and organized it.
Here are a few photos of the day.
Please continue to pray for good communication between me and Pastor John my interpreter. I try to have a lot of crowd interaction and he often thinks my questions are rhetorical. Even with that it is clear the pastors are understanding the truths even though I am challenging them to think in new, biblically based, categories.
Thanks so much for your prayers. Tomorrow after the seminar we drive back to Chennai to spend the night before Caleb and I fly to Egypt for two more Stand Firm Conferences there.
