Kanpur papers covered the conference with one of the headlines quoting, “Peace with God comes only through Jesus.” Yes! (If nothing else happens on this trip, a couple million people were exposed to that article headline.)
Many men and women came to the evening kickoff and women returned to the first full day conference. Although targeted to Christian women, 10 prayed for the first time to receive forgiveness from sin and new life through “Jesus Christ only.” Given the Hindu culture, we must be clear that Jesus is not to be added to all their other gods.
We hosted a Q&A session at the end of the day and fielded questions ranging from family issues and martial problems to theological and evangelism challenges. Indian women are so smart…regardless of caste!
The conference is going well, but the heat makes things challenging. It’s roughly 102 degrees with no A/C and a large crowd in the training room.
Please continue to pray for the women. Many struggle with unbelieving spouses and persecution from Hindu relatives and neighbors. Please also pray for the revival Friday night…and health and strength to persevere in the heat.
