Hello family and friends, I have just finished three days of teaching the children. It was a special program where they sang for me and I taught them, I know it was a nice break from normal classes for them. There were about 83 children there everyday. It was three sessions with songs before each teaching and a meal served. The first day I taught on the love of Father God, second day was Jesus example showing us the heart of the Father, and the third day was the Holy Spirit living in us showing us the Fathers heart now. I wanted them to know just how much Abba Father loves them and wants to provide for them.
They are all a real blessing to the Lord. When they have worship time singing and dancing they light up the room. They were bashful with me the first day but by the third day they would laugh with me. The time with them touched me deeply. I am posting a picture of them from the last day of the program standing in front of the school. Since Saturday was an extra day they are not wearing the school uniforms, so they look more like normal children to me.
I have some video but it was not very good quality, mostly my fault for not watching the camera screen instead of the children. But I am hoping with some help to edit what I have and share it with you all when I get back.
In between the sessions on the second day I met a man that had spent 18 years in the Indian Army. He is suffering from the experience, he spent 3 years on the Kashmir front fighting. Isaac has been sharing the Gospel with him and asked me to go speak to him, too. Right away I shared that I was a veteran as well in the US Navy. The Spirit of God was leading me. Right away I could see how much the fighting had hurt his heart. I shared my testimony with him and he listened very intently. He said he wanted to make me a special meal after the service this Sunday, since he had been to cooking school he knows western cooking, how could I resist and I accepted. We had rush back to the school for the next session so I was not able to share everything I wanted to with him. But right after the last session he showed up at the school and wanted to talk. I was able to share more of what the love of God can do to heal his heart and he said he would be at church tomorrow to listen to me. I am praying tomorrow he accepts the Lord and finds peace for his troubled soul. Please join me in prayer for Gopal and his wife Kabita that they might accept Christ together.
Well that is it for today, check the Joshi Mission Gallery for a couple of new pictures I am posting.
