Today we had a great monthly believers meeting in Ranny. Babu thought we might have 50 or 60 attending but they filled the room and then some. They even ran out of food for everyone. Phil delivered a wonderful spirit filled message that spoke to the hearts of many.
We met a young man who spoke fairly good English. He told us that he wants to be a pastor and had completed 3 years of Bible college when he contracted Malaria. He hasn’t been able to complete college yet.
We met another young man who’s father was Babu’s Hindu neighbor. Babu’s neighbor accepted Christ a few years ago and then lead his family to Jesus. His son attended Grace Christian College and now is graduating from a University with his Master’s of Divinity. He will become a pastor.
Tomorrow the convention begins. Babu has told us that there will be many people who don’t know Jesus as their savior there. He also told us it is against the law to invite people to become believers but we can tell them how to do it. I realize this sounds like a fine line and were not totally sure where the line is. Babu said their will definately be people monitoring for this. We will trust in his wisdom to translate appropriately. We will definately be sharing the Gospel but leaving any form of invitation up to Babu.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to be in the driver’s seat during the convention and that many might be saved for God’s glory.
Though we are having an incredible experience, we definately are missing home. Being away makes us appreciate all of you all the more.
