The Ministry Begins!

Greetings from India! Right now it is Tuesday afternoon in Kazipet, and we have begun the time of ministry among the Bible School students, graduates and alumni. On Monday evening, the day Pastor Charles and I arrived, we gave the graduation presents to the 30 graduates that make up the 10th graduating class of the Immanuel's School of the Bible in India.

It was exciting to see the joy in the faces of the graduates, as they were presented with bicycles, P.A. systems or sewing machines (whichever would best suit their ministry needs). They expressed their thanks to the people of Immanuel's Church who provided the gifts, and who regularly support the work of the Bible School here in India.

This morning Pastor Charles spoke to the 360+ current and past students out of the Song of Solomon, encouraging them that they are loved by the Lord, as a bridegroom loves his bride. The passion and heart for the Lord is very evident in their lives as they worshipped, prayed and received the Word from Pastor Charles.

I will be speaking this afternoon, and Pastor Charles will speak again this evening.

It is a privilege to be among so many who are completely committed to the work of the Lord among their people. I am honored to be here and see what God is doing in this part of the world.

More to come!
