One Mission Stories "After the Show" - Graham Houghton

April 10 2014

We hope you enjoyed Sunday night's (March 29) One Mission Stories, OMS' one-hour missionary interview-style radio program, featuring OMS missionary Graham Houghton, a New Zealander who has served in India for the past 50 years.

Graham shared his story about growing up on a dairy cow farm in new Zealand, not receiving his high school degree, yet God has used him in mighty ways. Graham since has received not only a bachelor's and masters' degree, but also his doctorate as well. Graham is married to Carol, an American who grew up in northern India as a missionary kid.

Graham is involved in church planting and theological education. His latest project is raising money for a new seminary in northern India.

Here are our "After the Show" resources to better connect you with things you heard about on last night's program.

GO: Do you want to be a missionary, either short- or long-term with OMS? Check out the opportunities, including all the upcoming short-term trips with MFM.

GIVE: If you would like to donate to any OMS ministries, you can do so online.

PRAY: Pray for Graham and Carol as they raise money for the new school in northern India. Pray that the Lord brings the people and provides the business visa needed. Also, pray for the growth of the church in India. Our national partner denomination, the Evangelical Church of India (ECI) reports that we now have more than 2,000 churches in India!
