From Ryder Kumar:
Here is a brief news from India as I just got an opportunity and access for internet.
Hyderabad Seminar went extremely well. People were more receptive than before. Both David and I enjoyed teaching. We enabled the participants to ask questions and there were many. The power went off only twice for a very short time. Interpretations were good. David and I preached at different churches. I preached at Ravi’s place. There was commotion at the Hyderabad airport because of a misinformation from the check in counter about the cancellation of connecting flight from Delhi to Lucknow on the 24th. So we got our tickets canceled, bought fresh tickets for Delhi – Lucknow. We stayed at Abraham’s home in Delhi instead of hotel (saved lot of money!) and at 3 a.m. we got ready to leave for Delhi Airport. We chose this schedule in order to be at the seminar by 8 a.m. on the 25th. The flight to Lucknow was good.
Unfortunately, the exchange rate went down. It was Rs 41 at our arrival in Delhi. But I managed to get more in Hyderabad. I went with Ravi to my old place and got @ Rs 44.20. This was a bit of relief as the prices of Hyderabad Conference went bit high.
Lucknow seminar is going on. There are 32 participants. The enthusiasm, interest and cooperation from the participants has been encouraging. Please pray as David got suddenly sick since yesterday. He rested at the hotel the whole day. But as he still felt unwell, I advised him to continue rest. Mindy suggested if we should get a doctor. I am working on that right now. Meanwhile by this noon David began to feel better from his throat, fever etc. I am glad that I administered the right medication. He should be able to teach from 4 p.m. sessions.
Meanwhile all the sessions are going on well. We are pouring out our hearts in teaching passionately and with burden.
