After the long and bumpy ride from Quiet Corner to Bangalore, we met up with the other half of our team, Tomas and Barb, at the home of our dear friends, Thomas and Marykutty Samuel.
Tomas and Barb had just arrived from the USA and had 24 hours to recover from the long journey before the start of the Leadership Conference at Faith City Church in Bangalore. Our first meal together was at the hotel where we were staying. What an amazing surprise awaited all of us! We were seated for dinner when suddenly praise and worship music began playing throughout the restaurant. Out of the hundreds of hotels, God selected this one! To us it was a sign that He was surely with us.
“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” Zeph 3:17
The Leadership Conference overall saw 430 in attendance. How exciting it was to have an entire seminary class of students attend the sessions. These young people were all from Myanmar and will return to their country after graduation to serve in full time ministry. This conference was multicultural as there were attendees there from other countries such as Nigeria and Yemen.
We have finally caught up with technology. Thanks to the IT crew at Faith City, the conference was streaming live. If you would like a sample of the teaching, you can view it at: https://youtu.be/-LrJ0DJwn2g.
Today is Monday, January 13, and we attended the wedding of a local village girl. There were over 700 in attendance. The entire village came and an invitation was given to us as well. The lunch was a feast of Indian cuisine and it was delicious.
We are hoping to get some rest before the start of the next conference, January 15-17. Please pray for: The upcoming 3 day Conference which will cover Daniel, Signs of the Times and The Tabernacle.
Pray for Sal to receive supernatural strength to teach the sessions.
Over 100 delegates are expected. Pray they are blessed and encouraged.
