India Update 3/17/12

Pray for strength and endurance as I teach 5 times today (starting Saturday).  The issue is not so much my breathing capacity as it is the energy and passion that I use and The Holy Spirit speaking through me; the spiritual battle of us bringing truth to pastors.  It is exhausting but rewarding as they seem to be really getting it.  God is revealing Himself and His truths about equipping and discipleship, horses, leaders, and relationships to these pastors and leaders in attendance.

On Thursday we had more pastors the second day again; the reception was great.  That night the business leaders in attendance included one man who I had met previously in the US; he came 300 miles that day.  Another sharp young man has followed me and our FCCI  and has  been modelling his ministry in the software industry after it.  He is leading many groups of people in his profession there in Chennai in the same model.

I met with other key ministry leaders and offered to just serve them.  They asked for my long term strategy for India and I said that I have none. I believe in divine appointments with no agenda, instead seeking to equip other leaders and serve them.  This gives great freedom and creates powerful partnerships.

Yesterday, on Friday morning, we woke at 230 a.m. and were at airport by 430 a.m.,  flying out at 6am and arriving at Hyderabad at 7 a.m.. We were at the hotel by 8 a.m. and speaking by 10 a.m.

Perry and Chris spoke most of morning and left for the airport, heading back to the USA at 3 p.m. We will miss them.  They did a great job.

We had a great crowd yesterday and the best reception yet.  Like I said, they are getting it.  And it is a work of God and your prayers that this message is being so well received by these pastors.  As you continue to pray, please pray for application and courage for them as they seek to equip leaders and go against the trend of building churches by building disciples instead. This is God’s timing for India and this horses equipping message.  I will say again that I have never seen God work with such power.  How I pray that our churches in the USA would quit playing games and make disciples and go out instead of go in.

We need a new model and Jesus is it.

Thanks for your prayers.  After Saturday we will have done 27 of 50 sessions – a little over half way.  Pray for Davidene today as she speaks to the pastors’ wives.

    Yes using Jesus as the one to model will always make a change in a person’s heart, if they really get ahold of it Kent. (WWJD what would Jesus do/say) . You are halfway through your speaking sessions. That’s great brother.
    We will continue to pray for you both.
    Blessings
