1. Sunday at All Saints

February 5, 2012

When you travel, things don’t always work out as you had planned.I’m writing this note from my hotel room in India at the very moment when I had planned to be finishing my sermon at the pastor’s conference. But our plans were waylaid when we discovered that this is a Muslim holiday of some sort, and they have planned a huge rally ...

2. “My Wife Secretly Prayed for Me”

February 4, 2012

“My wife secretly prayed for me."I heard the man say it as he shared his testimony of how he came to Christ from a Hindu background. His wife (who was also Hindu) came to Christ when someone shared the gospel with her. He was not happy about it, but he loved his wife and since she didn’t interfere with his idol worship, he made pe...

3. A Visit to the Taj

February 2, 2012

If you ever have a chance, you should visit the Taj Mahal.It fully deserves its reputation as one of the wonders of the world.

Today they ...

In the morning I preached to a few hundred. At night the crowd was considerably larger. Benny arranged things so that Josh and I arrived at the tent af...

6. The Exploding Sermon

January 28, 2012

We started with a real bang this morning.Benny said he would pick us up at the hotel about 9:30 AM. When he didn’t arrive at the appointed hour, we remembered his advice that in India you need to be like water, ready to “go with the flow.” As we stood outside the hotel, Josh and I watched the never-ending stream of people walking,...

It took two days to get here, then we spent yesterday recuperating from jet lag (which by the way is very real) at a hotel in Mumbai.
