Good news… We are in Delhi! Our 3 flights were great and we arrived on time at about 1:30am (India-time, about 5pm EST). We arrived at our hotel around 3:30am. Some of us slept– but not much! Our bodies are adjusting to the new time zone. Either way, we are so thankful to be here and could not have asked for smoother travel. As I write, I’m looking at 4 clay idols of Ganesh (the Hindu elephant god) sitting on the table next to me. These small idols are a reminder of why we are here… to bring good news and freedom to those in bondage.
We are about to eat breakfast and then spend the day in Delhi. Pray for us. We will be visiting various temples to orient the team to this very religious culture and to get a glimpse into the daily lives of the people. Pray for our prayers to be effective as we boldly pray against the idolatry here. Pray the Lord will give us opportunities to meet people of peace (those who would be receptive to the gospel)! We want to share the gospel as much as we can in our short time here.
And ultimately, pray for the day when Jesus will be glorified as the only True King of Kings in India!
