-Teresa Byington My house has a Bible in about every room and I suspect you have at least one Bible also. We are blessed. (If you don’t have a Bible and go to Connection Pointe, please stop by the Information Center in the Lobby—we have one just for you.) Scripture tells us that … All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives.

The Story of “N” -Connie Crum A significant part of our time in Patna was hearing stories from several women church leaders. “N” became a believer and began growing in her faith through a dream she had about her sister-in-law becoming pregnant. Her sister-in-law did give birth after years of not conceiving. “N” is now a key leader including leading worship. Her sweet, Spirit-filled disposition and tears telling the story gives hope in a God who is so...

Thursday, November 13 We began this very long day with prayer walk stops at Birla Temple and Albert Hall.

ASSI arranged a meeting of about 30 leading pastors...

Pooja, Krishna and Sankar were my highlights of the day as we visited Delhi ministries. We began with a visit to an ASSI child care location in a slum area along the railroad tracks.  I did a quick count of the children when were arrived; there were 27. By the time we left there were 53 crammed into a space that could not have been more than 20 feet by 12 feet. One of the girls who greeted us with an Indian dance was Pooja. Now 9 years old, we were told that at birth she was rescued from a...
