We spent the day in Kottoyam, India. It has a population of 1 million. It felt like we saw all 1 million on the road. It was chaos. I have never seen anything like it; cars, motorcycles, trucks, mopeds, people, and cows all vying for the same space on the road.
It was a stark contrast from the Church in Kottoyam. They are one of the smallest churches in the GCM ministry. Today they had approximately 30 people in attendance. Despite their lack of numbers they sang with more passion than 100 American churches combined. Almost brings me to tears thinking about it.
We were also privileged to be taken on a boat tour this afternoon. We spent a few hours in the bay that leads out to the Arabian Sea. God’s creation is amazing. It felt like we were in a movie. Once again it was a stark contrast to the city.
Tomorrow we are visiting our fourth church and then the GCM convention begins on Thursday. This is when about 500 people from all of the area GCM churches will come together to worship. We are looking forward to this. It will be longs days, but good days.
