We took David to a doctor yesterday. His was neither dengue nor bird flue. PTL. The medicine was given. And in overnight David is alright and back into teaching from yesterday afternoon. Many have died in Lucknow due to dengue. Couple of pastors couldn’t make it to the seminar due to sickness. Laxman Paul too is sick (Kanpur guy). The ones present are taking very keen interest. There have been many questions that are being answered as David and I are pouring out hearts to see these men become good expositors. I am enjoying this teaching a lot. There is good stuff in the course book.
This is the fourth course book and happens to be one of the most important one that we are teaching during this seminar. The participants in Hyderabad have thoroughly enjoyed, especially the practical session on how to do weddings. One of the participants who has the license to marry, married Ravi and Shanthi. [See photos in previous blog entry.] The whole group went into laughter but understood the meaning, conducting the marriage and the biblical truths. There are lot of practical sessions on preaching which is another segment that people enjoyed.
The most difficult part that the team had was travel from Hyderabad to Delhi when we were informed that the connecting flight was cancelled. When we went to bed that night it was already 11 p.m. we had to wake up at 3 in the morning and go to the airport to catch flight at 5.30 a.m. in order to be ready for the seminar at 8.30 a.m. After a hectic schedule at Hyderabad we were very tired and need a good rest but the circumstances didn’t allow us. But these challenges that we encountered never distracted our focus on teaching and accomplishing the tasks. God’s grace, strength and power were abundantly manifested as an answerer to prayers of His people. You may not imagine how God undertakes when you PRAY.
