Be praying for me, as today I leave for India. In an unexpected opportunity, I am going to preach this weekend in Chennai, India, at a very influential church. The father of CIL attender Ramya Mannar is bringing me to minister at the church he attends, and to experience the Indian culture. It’s going to be the trip of a lifetime. What a gift!
We have an incredible service planned this Sunday at CIL. Aubrey and Jennifer McGowan are new to our congregation, but they have been part of our extended family a long time. The McGowans have been worship leaders for ten years at my home church in Texas, which is one of the fastest growing churches in America. They have moved to Hendersonville to be close to family, which attend CIL. They will be leading worship this Sunday while Beth travels with the Appalachian Mission Team. If you want to get to know Aubrey ahead of time, he is teaching my class tonight at 6:30 p.m.
As you settle in to bed Saturday night, pray for me, as I will be at the beginning of a day of preaching in India (I’ll be in an area that is 11 hours ahead of Nashville). It’s my privilege to make Jesus known wherever God sends me!
