5:30 AM: It is hard to believe that nine months have passed since we were last here at Quiet Corner. After 36 hours of travel, we arrived safely to our second home in the jungle of Tamil Nadu. We are taking it slow as we adjust to the time change and catch up on our sleep. The sun is just rising above the Niligris Mountains. The birds, monkeys, cows, and roosters are raising their voices in harmony to herald a new day dawning.
It’s the first Sunday of the new year. We have been invited to the Moyer Bethel Bible Church. Moyer is a small village about 35 minutes away. The church is small but powerful in its passion to reach the lost. We are excited to see Pastor Victor, his wife and daughter and the congregation that he leads. Victor is the man who found Sal’s wedding ring last year after we searched an entire week.
The next few days will be spent preparing for the first conference on January 10-12. Tomas and Barb will leave the USA soon and join us on January 9. They will assist and participate in conferences and events for the next 2 ½ months. What a blessing they are to us. I look forward to having an amazing journey with them.
3:30 PM: We had a glorious morning of worship at the Moyer church followed by a beautiful lunch served Tamil style. In the Tamil homes the tradition is when the hosts invite guests for a meal they do not eat with them, but they serve them. So we were seated at a table and served by the Pastor Victor, his wife , Grace, and their daughter, Mercy. It’s a humbling experience but it is also a great honor.
- Please pray for Tomas and Barb to have a safe journey.
- Pray that God grant them supernatural rest since they will arrive early morning the first day of the conference.
- Pray for God to go before us and prepare the way.
It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. Isaiah 55:11 NLT
