Spinning around India

Hi dear friends! Just a quick update from India. Our New Year is off to a good start. We had a week of rest for the holidays and last week was back to "work." Evan visited some english classes partnered with World Vision. We spoke almost everyday at different home groups in mostly slum neighborhoods. It is so sweet to visit the humble, hungry, believers in their homes. And we really saw God show up and touch people's lives with His love. We were all blessed. This week we will continue to visit home groups. Pray that the light of Christ would shine through us and that God's message for His children would be in our hearts. The people live in very difficult situations and India as a nation is having a lot of struggles so they really need the light & hope that comes from the Living God.

I also stayed busy with a lot of hula hooping! I am having daily classes with some girls here that we are training up to lead the hoop ministry once we are gone. They are learning so fast and are so good with the kids! There is big vision and opportunity for hula hoop ministry here! We also took hoops to Kids outreach in different locations. Most kids here have never seen a hula hoop! They LOVE it and then I get to share the Gospel through the 5 colored hoops :) We will continue that this week, as well as teach some workshops at dance schools in the city. Please pray that our last few weeks here would be the best yet! I want to give & take everything God has for me during this time. I know there is more to come. More joy & love & Spirit. You can keep us in your prayers for finances as well as we hope to fly home at the end of this month before going on to Kona to staff a DTS. It is an honor to partner with y'all in this mission to reach the nations with the name of Jesus.

ps. I just finished reading Bill Johnson's book Face to Face with God It is seriously the best book I have read in a VERY long time. It challenged me so many times to stop, think, and pray. So good. I leave you with one of the many great quotes. "That is the nature of the Christian life. We give away what we have, and as we do, the world around us conforms. It is a superior kingdom." True, and something we can all do wherever we are.
