From Ryder Oct 26
The Lord brought the team safely to Lucknow though there was a confusion of missing the flight from Delhi to Lucknow due to the schedule change by the airlines (we were unaware of it). There are about 40 participants and this time I observed that there is more diligence, an increased appetite for learning and discipline. One of the most diligent participants had to leave the seminar on the third day as his seventh month pregnant wife became seriously sick. Please pray. While David and I are teaching at the seminar, the three ladies went to Unnao (KB’s church) to teach 70 ladies. The ladies who taught experienced joy and satisfaction in this significant ministry. The local church bore the expenses of food and hospitality for the lady participants. Today the ladies from the team have left for Kanpur (Laxman Paul’s church where Randy and Susan ministered the Word). 35 ladies are waiting at Kanpur as there had been a confusion due to Hindu festival. The confusion is a long delay of taxi that is used for the transportation. Please pray that in the midst of all these God’s plan and purpose will not only prevail but the whole team will experience it.
The stay at Comfort Inn is not bad. Our tired bodies are experiencing God’s extra grace and strength. I developed my throat irritation since two days. Please pray for healing.
