Making Disciples

We all understand that we are called to be a “witness and disciple”. But when a person begins to witness they go from being a disciple to being a discipler. A disciple is one who minds neither his own business nor anyone else’s business, but looks steadfastly to Jesus and follows Him. How long it takes Jesus to get us identified with Himself depends on us. We cause delays to God by persistently doing things in our own way.

As you see these pictures, please pray for these men and the men who have gone before, who are pioneering, planting, evangelizing, and equipping the body of Christ in India. The entire India Connection has God’s fingerprints on it and I am thankful for that. I recall the investments made by many men of God who took a step of faith and traveled to India to help equip men, women, and children in the work of the ministry.
