Opening prayer

We prayed together with God's people to open our new JSK office this morning.

Pastor Benny and Pastor Jairaj from the Covenant Blessings Church - our neighbours and long-time friends came over to be with us - as did Bro. Pravin Thomas from Lok Hospital.

We were deeply challenged and encouraged by Pastor Benny who shared that we have the same spirit which rested on Jesus when he stood up in his home synagogue in Nazareth and said that "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me, to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." (Luke 4.18-19 NIV).

We are God's hands and feet and through the things we do we allow God to work in lives that are broken and without hope.

We had a time of prayer afterwards (no - I am not despairing for life though the picture looks like it).

Then it was pop and sweets time - the wada pao came to late for our friends to enjoy - but we JSK staff dug in anyway.

Here is Sanjeev enjoying Bombay's finest!

  1. What? For the first time in recorded history, I'm deprived of my reading of the weekly Eicher musings.

    Illness? Travels? Celebrations? Or an internet blackout on the entire subcontinent. . .

    Must be a reason -- hope all is well.
