Update from SCBC India Team

I missed a skype call from Steve yesterday and was pretty disappointed.  He left me a brief facebook message, sounds like he is doing well.  Received this brief update from the team Steve is on in India:

Hello all!

Just wanted to send out this message that all is well. The India Mission Team arrived safe & sound in Bangalore after a looong flight. We were taken out to a place to get some Indian tea and it was a treat.

We are staying at Pastor JD's house above the church. It is so nice of him to open his home up to the entire team. Pastor A is here and everyone is doing fine.

We had a good breakfast this morning. We are about to head over for prayerwalking and will then go over to a village to preach the Gospel. Here we go! Pray for the Lord to work mightily. The Pastor's Conference starts tomorrow...JD said around 350 Indian pastors will be in attendance. Praise God! Part of the mission team will go over to fix up the orphanage building tomorrow as well.

I have been told that we are going over to the orphanage today as well...and will be baptizing some newly converted adult believers from the churchthat at the orphanage because they have a large baptismal there. Wow! God is good.

We are so blessed to be here. God has stirred our hearts even more now that we are here as we were having devotions and praying together as a team. When we were worshipping the LORD together, we could hear the Hindi temple music down the street. 

Please be in prayer for us...love all of you.


  1. Sarah, I'm sorry you missed Steve's skype call.
    Thank you though for the update on the India team.

  2. That is so exciting, Sarah! I have been missing India lately. Good to hear about it from someone else's perspective, though! Will he be in Bangalore area the whole time?
