Praying for India

Next week I will be traveling to India with a group to work with M's on the ground with the hopes of partnering with their work in the future. Thanks to all of you who have offered support already through prayers, encouragement, and financial giving.

Here are some specific ways you can be praying:

1. Travel: Any way you slice it, we are going to spend a lot of time in transit from the US to our final destination in India. Please pray that everything goes smoothly with customs, layovers, etc.

2. Adjustment to Culture: It is bound to happen...culture shock. Being thousands of miles away from the US has its effects (as does spicy Indian food). Please pray that these would be minimal and would not hinder our opportunity to minister.

3. Open hearts for those we encounter: I have been praying this for months now. God already knows who we will come into contact with while we are there. Please pray that we would have opportunity to share the Gospel and that hearts would be opened.

4. Teaching/Training: Most of our trip will be focused on teaching and training pastors in remote villages who have had little to no theological or ministry training. The topics we have been given are vast and could change at any time. Pray that God, through the Holy Spirit, would give us the exact words we need to say and that the pastors would be receptive.

5. My Family: I am grateful to have an opportunity to go on this trip and yet the hardest part will be to leave my family. Please pray that God would protect and provide for them while I am away.

Thank you in advance for your prayers. I will post updates as I am able so please check back!

Grace and Peace
