India Update – 3/14/12

When you are on the go from morning to night, the days begin to blur together. We had pastor classes yesterday in  Bangalore and had more the second day than we did the first day.  And, it turned out that our first day numbers were
bigger than we even thought.

We went to the airport in the afternoon and arrived in Chennai at our hotel about 9pm after a wild ride from the airport. The huge city of Chennai is in the south, and there are many believers and churches here with much more freedom than the north. Also, Christians are pretty serious here and not as many “nominal” as in the north.  Our seminar to pastors did well here on Wednesday – great reception and participation. We will conclude the pastors session Thursday morning,  then tour a Business as Mission software firm, wrapping up with teaching the marketplace seminar until 9pm.

A short night’s sleep will be followed by a 3am wake up for the trip to the airport and a 6am flight to Hyderabad early Friday morning.  Speaking 3 or more times a day allows you time to speak and eat and sleep and little else. I took two daytime naps (which I never do);  when you speak, it is emotionally exhausting. Yet, God is allowing us to connect with people here and we sense the prayers of many.

We believe that a number of pastors will catch the vision of equipping their workplace horses.

So please continue to pray for God’s power and filling and wisdom to say the right things both privately and publicly. Pray, also, that these leaders will follow up on their commitments to equip others.
