From Keith and Ryder
The first training seminar in Hyderabad is off to a good start. The 50 pastors arrived safely and have been attentive and interactive with the New Testament Survey material. It is amazing to think that we have already completed the Gospels and Acts. Tomorrow, we begin two days on the Pauline Epistles. Pray for strength and stamina both for Ryder and me and for the pastors; it is unseasonably hot for Hyderabad with the daytime temperatures in the 90’s. The room we use does not have A/C. It gets very hot with no air movement, particularly in the afternoon. After a day of travel and with the heat, the men were somewhat glassy-eyed on Monday afternoon for session which began at 1:30 and went until 7:30 p.m. Yesterday, after a good night’s sleep (the temps are dropping to the high 60’s at night), the men were much more alert. Thanks for praying – the seminar is going well by God’s grace.
