Christina and I have been in India for five days, travelling with our partners and friends, Randeep and Anu Mathews. For years I have wanted Christina to see some of the India that I love so much; until now, all she has seen are the slums and poor rural villages where we work. Over the past few days we have seen the remarkable Agra Red Fort, which was constructed in the 16th and 17th century by the Mogul rulers. Before the British stripped it, the fort and palace were covered with gold and jewels, including the largest diamond in the world. Even without most of the precious stones, this huge fort is a marvel. Yesterday, Christina went with Randeep and Anu to the Taj Mahal. (Unfortunately, I was back at the hotel dealing with some sickness that has now disappeared.) I first saw the Taj in 1998 and have wanted Christina to see it ever since. For me, it is the most beautiful structure I have ever seen. To my delight, she loved it.   Read More

I'm so glad that Jesus was manifested to the world to destroy the works of the devil! This is not only good news for you and me but is good news for the girls of Nepal who are being trafficked by the thousands to brothels in India and elsewhere. In Psalms it says that justice is the foundation of His throne and in Amos it says let justice flow like water and righteousness like an unfailing stream. Thank God that in Nepal His justice is beginning to flow as our partner is bringing Hope and opportunity to the impoverished and vulnerable. On our last trip we learned so much about Nepal and its people as we trekked in the beautiful mountains, listened to those who have poured out their lives there such as the leader of a remote village who has endured through much suffering to bring opportunity and hope to his community and helped to end trafficking there. The richness that personally has been added to my life through friendships in Nepal is a priceless treasure. Cynthia got to facilitate a conversation in a youth center about how to find healthy relationships and live healthy lives. We got to participate with our partner in the distribution of water filters, and the construction of a school. A new day is dawning on this beautiful nation! Come be ray of light with us! Come swim in the river of justice that flows from the Maker of Heaven and earth, justice that is full of Faith, Hope, and Love!  Read More
