We arrived in Raichur India safe last night after our 3 hour train ride. We went straight to our hotel and got some sleep.
Date: February 11-12, 2017 (Saturday-Sunday)
These two days were spent ministering as a team at the weekend crusade! Truly amazing days of ministry where thousands of people have come to here the gospel and be encouraged. Their are many believers from all over India and many non-believers that come out for this 3 day crusade.
I was given an opportunity to share the gospel during the event as thousands sat and listened attentively as I told them about Jesus Christ. I spoke with a translator (which is always an interesting experience), but I truly sensed the power of the Holy Spirit ministering in such a wonderful way.
Here are some photos taken throughout the couple days we spent at crusade...
We also were able to minister to the Children during the crusade! Hundreds of children gathered as we did puppet show, crafts, coloring, and just loved on the children. It was truly a blessing to have opportunity to minister to these children.
Here are some photos of children's ministry in action..
Towards the end of the last day of the crusade some of the women got together and made Justine a "Sari" (clothing that women in India wear). I was initially on the other side of the property, and heard a lot of "ooohs" and "aaahs"! Then a group of kids came and told me to come and see what was going on. As I arrived on the scene I exclaimed "Wow, So Beautiful" and everyone cheered and laughed. It was truly a great memory of JOY with the people of India! To just become a part of their culture and enjoy this moment with them blessed my heart so much that I wanted to share it with you all. The people also asked that we would pray over them which was also a great privilege and blessing for us to do.
Here are a few photos...
These days were such a blessing to be able to minister and be a part of the work of the Holy Spirit at this crusade! Their was so much ministry that took place from the whole team that pictures and me talking about really is not sufficient in showing truly what happened these couple of days.
It's also important to mention, that we were praying for people all day every day! None of us on the team could walk 3 feet without someone coming up to us and asking us to pray for them! The people were so hungry for God's word and for prayer throughout the whole weekend. It was truly a blessing to teach, fellowship, and pray with the people of India. God did amazing things!
