Here is a brief report from Lucknow: The participants have come from different states of North India. Right now we are in the midst of the seminar. The other two teachers are laboring (labored) with burden, being conscientious, caring and sound in teaching. The group of 38 are being equipped to be better in their teaching, approach in their counsel and be able in teaching the Truth in congregations. These lives are impacting thousands of people. the churches are increasing and the number in the churches are growing. I believe that STN is contributing significantly in outreach, making disciples and equipping the trainers. I am honored to be part of this program. I am humbled by the group of people who are raising funds, donating funds and praying with burden back at home. the other day I mentioned about Joseph Samuel who helps in the ministry of gathering items for World’s for Sale for STN. This is no way a insignificant ministry. The donating of free miles for my international trip too is so significant in the whole ministry. I didn’t even meet the guy who donated this. I am humbled by such generous people that we have back at home churches. It has been a great encouragement to speak to the Browns, the Leinens prior to my teaching at the first session. These couples are of such an encouragement to me and I don’t know what I would have been without them and their support.
Yesterday when I requested the whole group to pray and one senior pastor led in prayer interceding for Paul Brown the whole group joined with burden and affirmed with their voices.
I am very tired but not missing any session to teach except for yesterday when I observed that Kishore was doing an excellent teaching requested him to do one of my session. This helped me to rest for an hour in the afternoon. I am also interviewing different ones and these testimonies are so uplifting. These participants are working in remote villages with lot of inconveniences and struggles. Their needs are genuine. Please pray that the Lord would supply. As a receptive of motor bike, Bramhanand is now able to visit 20 villages but is unable to provide the converts and contacts a place of worship. He doesn’t have any church building. Tej who is receiving monthly support is distributing with three other workers in Nepal because others don’t receive any money. Balleshwar, a tribal guy who dances while sings has the same problem of having no place for Worship for the people he ministers. These are only couple of examples.
Much love, I remain
