Last Days in Sunderban

Saturday...

We took a boat to another island today. We met with 25 believers in a village house owned by a businessman named Haren, who owns 4 gold shops. He serves as the pastoral worker for the small congregation. Later, we had spicy jumbo prawns for lunch, loudspeakers echoing into our small room. We tried closing the window shutters, but it was very challenging! It was cooking hot and my shirt was totally drenched with sweat. We ended our day with a 1½ hour needless drive through many remote villages on almost impassible narrow bumpy roads to see a crocodile farm, but never got there! We turned around before darkness got us stuck there.

Tomorrow I preach at a Sunday service and then return to Calcutta to catch a plane to Patna early Monday am. Thanks for praying. My stomach is settled now.umm good! Next, we taught 12 students in another location, all from a Hindu background. They will each be taking the Gospel to a different village without any church. The training took place while a political rally outside blared their speeches through loudspeakers echoing into our small room. We tried closing the window shutters, but it was very challenging! It was cooking hot and my shirt was totally drenched with sweat.

Who will fulfill the great commission? Is God calling you to give financially, go in faith, or pray fervently?
