A New Thing

Pastor Sal Massa

“Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.  Isaiah 43:19  NASB

It’s been a long year. Our last trip to India was only 12 months ago and yet the events of this year make it seem more like 12 years. It was by God’s grace that I was able to make it through MissionIndia 2016 with the pain and discomfort of a hip joint that needed replacement. One month after returning from India I underwent surgery and slowly recovered. I’m happy to report that I am now as good as new and ready for the next trip.

“Behold, I will do something new. . .”

In July, a more devastating event rocked our church family here and in India. Our dear friend, Tom Kish, was suddenly called home to be with the Lord after a short illness. The grief was deep and painful. Not only had his family lost a wonderful husband, father and grandfather, but the church had lost an excellent teacher. Tom was a great defender of the faith here and abroad. Sal lost a good friend and dedicated teaching partner in India.  Returning there without Tom and Bev Kish is difficult to imagine. Because the spiritual hunger of the pastors and church leaders that come to the conferences and school is so great, we sensed God’s leading to continue the work without interruption. We are certain Tom would want it that way.

“Behold, I will do something new. . .”

So on January 17, Sal, Dave Samuel and I will head out for the long trip to Bangalore and Quiet Corner, India. We will arrive January 19 (India Time), spend 2 days in the city and then head out to QCI. Our first conference is the last week in January. The Bible School will follow the first week in February. Another conference is in the works in Nagpur. Also, I will participate in an all day seminar with the young widows of Quiet Corner.

“Behold, I will do something new. . .”
