Pastors Testimonies and more pics

Saturday, July 29th, 2006

We had an amazing thanksgiving service today at the beautiful MGM resort. Joshua and I felt it would be best to honor those who worked so hard by having a lunch meeting here. There were about 30 of us altogether, pastors and wives. My favorite part of the time was being able to hear the [...]

Follow up in Chennai

Friday, July 28th, 2006

It turns out staying here is really bearing fruit. I always felt a bit funny having to hit and run when we do ministry together when i am here, but family and work don’t allow me too many options usually. Now that I stayed however, I have been able to solidify my bond with pastors’ [...]

Team heads on to Andhra

Wednesday, July 26th, 2006

The day after the crusade ended, we headed back to Chennai on Monday, tired but victorious. Nobody wanted to think about the flight the next morning to Andhra Pradesh, but it was coming. I had been praying about whether I should go with them, as my business needs are very acute right now, as well [...]

Rain Sandwich

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

An interesting backdrop story to the crusade was that we really had a remarkable time with the weather.
The day before the crusade there was heavy rain all up and down the coast. From Chennai to Pondicherry. Our night in the hotel was illuminated with lightning every 10 seconds. Needless to say, everyone was praying that [...]

I will also make other posts now that are not sent via email, so please visit the site so you can read more about the crusade’s aftermath, boat trip, etc.
Before I get into the [...]

Crusade Day 2… End of Yourself

Saturday, July 22nd, 2006

great news!
Day 2 has really been a great deal of fun and heavy lifting as we started off the day with an orphanage visit, a journey on a fishing boat, and then a great service.
There was a sense that people would be set free during worship, and it certainly happened! This village area really has [...]

Glorious Chaos

Friday, July 21st, 2006

The first night of the crusade was really a wonder to behold.
At first it looked like there was only going to be about 300 people as we were already 45 minutes past the 6pm posted start time.
By 7:15 there were over a thousand, and by 8 there were 2500!!!
We had a power failure from our [...]

First Conference Completed! It is a God Thing

Thursday, July 20th, 2006

Where do I begin?
The conference was amazing! Now that we are in Mahabalipuram, this is my first shot at an internet connection. I am downloading 500 emails while writing this… not sure what will finish first. The conference ended today at noon, and we just arrived a cool place with a great view of this [...]

Amazing People of God… Strong in Spirit

Sunday, July 16th, 2006

This post is written in the early morning after a tough night. My main speaking partner for the conference, pastor Joe Durai, had been missing for two weeks! I thought he perhaps he was out preaching somewhere, but it turns out the rumors i had heard about him being in an accident were true. I [...]
