The Return To India

I will be returning to India next week, leaving on Sunday, March 2nd and returning on Tuesday night, March 12th. I m very excited! India captured my heart when I was there last year, and I know that my love for the people there will only deepen this time.

I will not be returning to the area I ministered last year, but will be going to Kazipet, in the state of Andhra Predash. Our church has a Bible School there, where young pastors are trained to go and start churches in towns and villages where there is no Christian influence. I will be traveling with my senior Pastor, Charles Schmitt, who makes the journey every year at this time to minister to the students and take part in the commencement exercises.

My wife Elaine came here in 2006 so in our house, I am the rookie in Kazipet. My plan is to assist my pastor as he teaches and ministers, as well as for me to preach, evangelize and pray for people with physical and spiritual needs. I know that that it will be a fruitful and life-changing trip, both for those to whom will hear about the love of Christ and for me, as I share those life-changing words.

Please check this Blog regularly as I will be posting from India daily as I did last year.
