Dear friends at Grace Reformed Church: Grace and peace to you in
the precious name of Jesus Christ! I hope this finds you well.
Yesterday, we concluded our first Talking Bible Conference in India.
Pastors came from the 29 states and 7 territories of India. We had a
wonderful time listening to their reports. Be encouraged God is at
work here in India too. We sent each pastor home with 30 Talking
Bibles. I want to thank you for your prayers and support. We are
grateful for your partnership in the Gospel.
