Praying For Kenya With Love

When I first came to the United States as a student of the University of Indianapolis, many years ago, I met a gentleman by the name of Ken Mosongo. Ken is from Kenya. Yeah, I know. That's what I thought too, Ken from Kenya? What a rhyme. Ken and I worked long hours in the school kitchen. We studied together in its labs on weekends and late into the night. We taught ourselves how to make cheap international calls. We fretted about how we could pay our large tuition bills and what we would do if we became dropouts. Those were not easy days but we made them fun days.  Since Ken, I've met many Kenyan's and they've been friendly to me. I see them as my brothers and sisters. [...]

Punjab India – 2014 Crusade Report 3

This is the final installment of the 2014 crusade report in the Punjab, India. If you missed the previous installments, you can read them here: Part 1 | Part 2.   Day 3 We had breakfast with a new family and fellow-shipped with them. Like many other families we met, the husband had gone abroad to work and was sending remittance back to his wife and children. The husband came back once or twice a year to visit, and that for short stints. For you and I, this may be a hard way to live, but people in the Punjab thrive under this. There is prestige in this even. We proceeded to some site visits in Amritsar, amongst which was Jallianwalla Bagh, where many Indians were massacred in [...]

Punjab India – 2014 Crusade Report 2

In part 1 of this report, (see here if you missed it), I mentioned I would give a day to day account of the evangelistic mission to India. Here goes: Day 1 I was picked up at the Amritsar airport by Pastor John Lubhaya, his son William and Pastor Manahor. We went straight to business, attending a Pastors meeting where I shared a short sermon and mingled with the pastors who had worked hard together to put the Crusade together. Then we drove to a location about 1km from the Pakistani border where I delivered another sermon at a local Church. The audience was young and so I decided to mostly utilize inspiration. After the meeting, we were presented with some local delicacies. Chapati, Rice and a variant of [...]

2014 Crusade Report, Punjab India

It's been several months now, since I sat in the living room with my dad and brother watching Anthony Bourdain waltz through the Punjab on CNN. The show was beautiful, the colors of the place, livid, and the food? Mmmmmm... You could almost taste it's goodness from the TV screen. The division of India into two states, India and Pakistan by the British, highlighted on the show, struck a chord in me. I decided to do some research on it and through that, learned a bit more about the Punjab. Over the next few days, my brother, dad and I made pleasant jokes using the word "Punjab". We just loved that name. View the Pictures here.   An Invitation Came A few weeks after watching the Punjab show on [...]

Night of Compassion ’13 – Report

About 16 children were sponsored during Night of Compassion '13. These are children who would have regular meals, safe housing, schooling and a chance to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ, because people on the South Side of Indianapolis responded to the call to show compassion.
