    To everything there is a season” (Eccl 3:1-8). “A time to be born—a time to die,a time to  plant—a time to pluck what is planted,a time to gain—a time to lose…a time to keep silence—a  time to speak.”God made every thing beautiful in its TIME. A multi-national company in the USA works during the day & at night turns over its work to India. In this way the company is working around the clock. God gave 24 hours each day for everyone—& if you don’t do the important things while you have the time, you may live to regret it.

The Dharoor Experience

dharoor

Every year for the past 85 years or so, the Methodists from Hyderabad and surrounding districts have conducted a huge camp meeting near Dharoor (a small village in Ranga Reddy District of Andhra Pradesh). This camp meeting is always in November, and is held in a big open field. It has grown from 10,000 in the inaugural year to about 10 lakhs today (1 lakh=100,000). [This is one million people in attendance.] I went this year to see what was going on. I will tell you why.

Dear Brethren,

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Most readers have heard about Juanita's complicated gallbladder and abdominal surgery. This was followed by a lengthy, difficult, and often painful recovery. We apologize if this news has not reached you. Briefly, let me inform you that Juanita is now doing very well. It will take some time before she regains her full energy, but Juanita expects to be able to return to India as scheduled on August 8th.

Dear Brethren,

Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Please rejoice with us in the news that Juanita is well! We learned this news from her surgeon last week. We thank the Lord for hearing the prayers of our wonderful brethren over the past five months on behalf of Juanita and myself. During this period of illness we were so impressed with all the kindness, patience, and understanding that was extended to us. We received so many cards, letters, e-mails, and telephone calls both from brethren in the states and in India. We can never adequately respond to all these wonderful acts of love except to say from the depths of our being, "Thanks." Juanita suffered a lot, but she is now feeling very well and is ready for the work.

Dear Brethren,

Greetings in th precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be all the glory and honor both now and in the ages to come. Our Lord said, "If the Son of man is lifted up He will draw all men (all kinds of people) to Himself (John 12: 32). In India peoples of all tongues, colors, castes, rich and poor, educated and illiterate are being reached by evangelists who lift up the Christ. Missions, missions, missions.. .this is what we are all about. How welcome are the feet of those who bring good news to the lost (Romans 10: 15). The brethren of India greet you.
