WHAT I LIKE BEST IN INDIA
There are some parts of our time in India that I especially appreciate. They may seem like little things, but as we all know, little things are important. I really like the warm weather. I thank God He sends me to India, not Siberia! I love wearing sandals all day and going barefoot inside. In the USA my feet are always cold, but here. I enjoy teaching and preaching barefoot. It is a very appropriate way to show respect to God and His Word.
I love teaching the Word every day, several times a day. It is a joy and privilege I continually thank God for. Many are very hungry to learn God’s Word. What could be better than speaking God’s truth to hungry listeners all day every day? Also it is gratifying to write and give out my books. It’s very humbling that God choose me and I praise Him for it.
The magic tricks are a lot of fun. I delight in seeing how the people are educated and entertained by them. They help the “light bulb” go off in their heads, as they understand the content.
The people in India are wonderful. The Christians are loving, caring, friendly and very appreciative of everything we do. The women dress colorfully and feminine. It is a privilege developing relationships with them year after year. They are an example of joy and faithfulness under difficult circumstances. I remember this all year long. They give a fresh perspective to what is important in life and what is not. I thank God for all the blessings I receive from our involvement in India. (January 20, 2020 Vijayawada, India)
Luke 16:10 “One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.
John 6:9 “There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are they for so many?”
Matthew 13:32 It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”
Take some time and think about the ‘little’ blessings God provides in your daily life. It’s too each to miss them. Thanks God for them and think of them throughout the day.
