Update from India : Sunday, May 4–Monday, May 5

Yesterday, May 4, I preached at two services and Steve preached at one.  My morning was at the Guwahati Baptist Church, an Assamese congregation of about 300, adjacent to the Council of Baptist Churches compound.  It was the first Sunday of the month and thus baptism Sunday.  13 adult candidates were immersed--5 women and 8 men.  The baptistry was under the platform and reminded me of the stories of old in the US.  The afternoon service was wiith a Naga speaking congregation of about 80.  They were mainly students and hill people who had migrated to the city.  You will have to ask Steve about his short, two point sermon. 

Today, Monday, May 5, we leave Guwahati to come home.  Kolkatta, Mumbai, Brussels, Newark, KCI.  We may be in bed in Clay County by about midnight on Tuesday.  A quick summary of the last 17 days would read: Preached 11 times.  Presented Challenges and Opportunities in Christian Higher Education 5 times to 11 different schools/institutions.  Ate lots of rice, curry, steamed and boiled veggies.  No ice cream.  Lots of stories. 

Thanks to Second Baptist Church for their financial help and to all the rest for prayers and encouragement.  We are eager to report and be accountable for your support. 

Jerry and Steve
