We arrived safely and have had two days of meetings with the School of Evangelism directors from Evangelism Resources. It has been an excellent introduction to India. The 22 directors are from all over the country. They reported on the work going on their various States and the diversity of the country was evident. India is truly a "nation of nations."

"The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;"

When we think of the word hope it usually is associated with a good future. Children “hope” to receive certain gifts for their birthday or Christmas. They “hope” to have ice cream after school where they are “hoping” to do well. Hope is crucial for children in terms of their sense that tomorrow holds something good. However, this understanding of hope can be confined by our limited world view. In many corners of the world, children are not hoping for material gifts or ice cream!
