Monday esatablished new home church in India

Monday, August 15th, 2005

Josh’s Church, Praise Garden, where pastor Aruldas serves, is the most welcoming, mature and focussed church I know in India.
Also for me, the people there have a great heart and desire for the Kingdom of God to expand, and are ready to partner with us going forward.

Big breakthroughs for the city of Kanchipuram, as we finished last night of crusade with over 5000 in attendance!

Saturday Night Revive!

Saturday, August 13th, 2005

Saturday night came with a sense of reckoning. The burden I felt on the first night was replaced with a new one, which is hard to compare in terms of severity, but it was very different. I was much more settled regarding the message itself, but the unanswered question was how far to take it. This sermon is where the Jeremiah mandate was to come into play. And this message was to be a pretty tough pill to swallow.

First night a success!

Friday, August 12th, 2005

Friday night approached with a great deal of trepidation for me. I mulled over not only a sermon title, but even the theme and temperature of the event. When I prayed about being strong toward tearing down strongholds, the Lord reminded me to know nothing else among them except Christ and Him crucified. (1 Cor [...]

Meeting Pastor Aruldas!

Wednesday, August 10th, 2005

Joshua’s pastor, and my great encouragor, pastor Aruldas (affectionately known as Arulappa) with me today to convey the spiritual background of what we are facing and ministering to. I am at a loss to convey it in words, as i dont want to be redundant, so all I can say is that we are getting [...]

Visiting Joel Sekaran - Sunday

Monday, August 8th, 2005

This post will be brief although originally intended to be large. I started it twice and in both cases closed the browser before posting! Doh.
Anyway, on Sunday after meeting with Solomon, I went down to Chengulpet to meet with our main coordinator, Pastor Joel Sekaran.
We had a wonderful time encouraging one another and I was [...]

Arrived in India - Appt with Solomon

Sunday, August 7th, 2005

This arrival was almost routine, but right away, we had a wonderful encounter in arranging meetings for Sunday.
Someday I’ll stop being amazed at how easy it has become for us to arrive in India and immediately get going with appointments, plans, and daily life. It really is a second home. So we went through the [...]
