Update From India

God bless you Riverside Church!

What a travel adventure this has been. First we departed at 11pm on Thursday and after almost 20 hours worth of flying we finally arrived in India on Saturday at 4:30am with literally just 3 hours to rest up and enjoy a nice breakfast our hosts made for us! At this moment we have enjoyed several times of prayer as we are preparing to lead a worship service at a local leper colony. Beyond bringing a worship service we are bringing the word coupled with arts, crafts and games for the children. I’m sure this will be a very moving experience for all of us. Please keep the team in prayer as we are all very tired and dealing with terrible jet lag. After our services today we were invited to attend an engagement ceremony. So tonight will be a long evening.

Tomorrow I will be preaching at one of the largest churches in Hydarabad then at another church in the evening. We are expecting thousands of pastors for a three day conference beginning on Tuesday. It’s hot here and I didn’t bring enough sweat rags!!!! Above all and more important we know God is good and we are expecting a mighty move because we serve a mighty God!

Love y’all!
