The Crisis in Orissa!
This pastor came to the Pastors Conference and travelled nearly 600 kilometers to be with us. He is from Orissa, the place where the Christians are being persecuted and in some instances, killed. I felt honored to meet this young man. Trevain and I were in the car when he got a call from one of his friends in that location and they were asking him to try and get more airtime added to his phone. He was in the middle of a field and could not get back to the city to get to his family. He needed to be able to try and contact them by phone and his airtime was running out. It is different in the states -- most people have prepaid phones. Anyway -- to be that close to the people who were suffering there and then to meet this brother was a real eye opener.
