I noticed this article and thought I would reply to it.
Having just returned from India three weeks ago, after an amazing experience of being host to guests who stayed with me back in May of this year after seeing my details on Oscar, I consider their journey and mine of no coincidence but by divine calling, for within four months in knowing Pastor Jetpaul and his wife Ruth, who came as total strangers, the fellowship that we experienced then was certainly timed for me to go to India and having asked me many times whether I would visit work they were doing there, when I prayed about this, the Lord said go and without hesitation made arrangements for my journey. I travelled solo and the Lord provided for my expenses. I stayed with Pastor JD and Ruth for they run several ministries at The Faith Baptist Church in Karnataka, including a children’s orphanage where I had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with the children. I also visited some of the villages where they have set up home groups because they also train pastors of which there are 180 ministering in various Hindu villages. I had an opportunity to talk and see some of their vision to reach unreached villages, teach and to train youth and village pastors from grass root level; establish cell groups and plant churches, break barriers and build bridges among all communities, establish more day-care centres, orphanages, and old people’s homes for the destitute and for the people who are in need; a school building for the orphans and village children, establish self help groups in different villages. This is a great challenge for them. But the enthusiasm and hard work that I saw over the fourteen days that I was there and yes my heart was broken several times, because of all that I saw, nevertheless, I am so encouraged by the warmth and enthusiasm of all the people working under this ministry, without a doubt I am now willing return, if that is the Lord’s will for me to do.
If people go into the mission field with their own agendas, hope to find recognition or praise for what they do, or bring about conflict, then they are not there for the right reasons, God did not send them! When He does, we should always go with a cheerful heart! I share this Proverb with you: “Don’t demand an audience with the king or push for a place among the great. It is better to wait for an invitation than to be sent to the end of the line, publicly disgraced!” (Proverbs 25:6).
