As I write this post, I’m in a hotel in India with limited power, limited internet, and quite frankly limited sleep. I should have written this post a week ago, but things have been so hectic that I’m just now getting to it. Oh well, better late than never.
Thank you so much for your continued prayers for Rachel. She continues to defy medical prognosis and is remarkable stable and living thanks to our Sovereign God!! It was very difficult to leave home this time for this trip, but Lori and I both felt as if it was God’s will for me to be here with Blake Livengood and Gil Feltel to train 41 students at the Transformational Training Institute in Mirik, India. Please pray for us while we are here and our families while we are away. I’ve written our itinerary below and again appreciate so much your prayers for our family and our team as we continue to spread HIS LIGHT!!

We continue to pray for the Lord to provide her with a new heart, but we are asking for God’s mercy on her and Lori while I’m away.
Thank you so much for partnering with us as we seek to share HIS LIGHT in the hard to reach places of the world!
