Basil D'Souza and the team at Covenant Blessings, Thane hosted the SOM on Hermeneutics-Studying the Bible from Thursday to Saturday. There were around 50 students eagerly receiving the teaching and responding with a passion to learn how to study the Bible more effectively. It was impressive to see a number of younger men and women excited about the Bible. Our first SOM in India was held here in Mumbai and some 18 years on it continues bearing fruit in the lives of leaders and those aspiring to leadership.

Peter and Basil then flew to Delhi to commence a new school in Ghaziabad, a city on the outskirts of New Delhi of some 2.5 million people. The students part of the network of churches under the leadership of Yashwant Paul attended this school. We taught on leadership to some 40+ leaders each day. There was a very real sense of connection which I am sure will lead to further schools being carried out. We thank God for all He is doing in india and for the privilege of being involved  in training the next generation of leaders for the church.
