Having just returned from 12 days in India ministering to persecuted pastors from Orissa, I can only say that I am humbled to have met some of the most courageous joyful men of God who literally have lost all, but not their faith in Jesus. Some of them without a doubt will be martyrs themselves. Many of these pastors literally beat rocks all day and take the pebbles to sell for cement hoping to gain a dollar a day. They have seen things that I will not write here, but yet they sing and worship like no one I have ever seen.

These men are heroes of the faith, but they would not accept that, they would simply want to be good pastors for their people who have been scattered like they are. Theses pastors are targeted and are in danger every day. There are also pastors wives who are widows who are in need and of course orphans. Unless you go and see these men it is hard to understand, but one thing we can do here is help them financially. I will in the near future give you all opportunity to be a part of helping this situation to the glory of God. Pray for the pastors of Orissa as well as the widowed pastors wives and the orphans.

blog you later,
