This is the latest news from the missions team that Lisa is presently serving on in India. It is taken from the StoneRidge Church blog.
It’s been one week since our team headed to India and it’s been a busy one between travel, teaching and changing plans! Everyone is doing well health-wise and enjoying rich fellowship.
On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday they taught at conferences for pastors and women. Everything went very well.
Here’s where plans changed. On Thursday, the team was supposed to travel to Gangtok in Sikkim province for another conference. However, road blockades and strike actions by the Gurkha people made that impossible. Since there is only one way in and out by ground, they tried to book helicopters. Unfortunately, they were already booked solid due to the blockades.
For now, they will remain in West Bengal and keep an eye on the situation. Instead of traveling on Thursday, the team was able to have some down time and do some sightseeing. If they are unable to travel to Gangtok, they will seek opportunities to serve with other missions where they are.
No doubt God has a purpose in keeping our team in West Bengal, at least for the time being. Please keep praying for them… that they would make wise decisions about travel, that God would open up opportunities for them to serve where they are, for continued good health and that God would use them to draw people to Himself.
