Life in a Metro

This was the title of the invitation service they had in Mumbai, India on 30th September. It was great to see over 900 people hear the good news of Jesus.

2008 NEW ORLEANS Campus Conference

As we pray and prepare for the Int'l Campus Conference in New Orleans next year, MSNBC gives us the latest on the rebuilding process.  Conference participants will spend one day working with Hope and Habitat for Humanity rebuilding homes.  They will give us both the skills, the tools, and a place to work.  It will be a totally different conference. One day out in the field, and two days of classes and fellowship in the hotel.  The city of New Orleans is still way behind and way underfunded in their rebuilding efforts.  Sections of the city are still desolate.  Some city officials es

Risking Their Lives in India

By Mark in New Delhi.     Ten months ago the New Delhi and Kolkata churches of Christ sent out six courageous disciples to the city of Bhubaneswar, Orissa, to plant a church. Orissa is a very poor part of India, and Bhubaneswar is a city full of Hindu temples and leaders. Several years ago in Orissa an Australian missionary, Graham Staines, and his two sons were burned to death in their car by an angry Hindu mob. In spite of the challenges in this very tough field, the disciples have seen 9 baptisms in 10 months.
