Though these last three days in Kolkata were not filled with exciting ministries, it didn’t mean that all those days had gone to waste! Besides the last 3 days being a big hump for this project, India182, I would clearly like to acknowledge your prayer and intercession for me which have got me to push past this front with the strength from God! Thank you so so much for all the emails and encouragements that have really lifted me up during this time to see hope and light from Jesus than being sucked in to all the chaos and need surrounding me.
During these three days, I have really taken a greater focus toward prayer walking around my area and towards all the strongholds that God had pointed out in the city. I quietly walked with Jesus praying for the things that He put in my heart which of course would hurt sometimes to feel the compassion and pain He would feel when He saw that.
I think this is the big hump for me; more than discerning God’s voice sometimes in this season through the valley.
It is seeing the powerful force of need and feeling it and wanting to help everyone and having to say no to someone on the street asking for money or just the outburst of blindness that have them worshiping idols and money.
But praise the Lord! He is faithful! Nothing is impossible, and the more need I see surrounding me, the more I am growing in my faith & belief, in that aspect, that He is! I know that the same Jesus that walked the earth, is the same one with the same heart for God’s people today! Jesus may your kingdom come Lord!
Other than the prayer walking throughout these three days, I had a lovely chat with Rajan about the upcoming vision that God has slowly grown my passion about! (More to come about this vision! Be patient guys! Haha)
He greatly encouraged the idea and told me that it would be wise to explain it to every Ywam leader that I would come in contact with so I could get a greater feedback and acknowledgment; along with some comments and suggestions. It was a great time to spend with Rajan and get to know more about him; though its been only 2 weeks, the relationship has grown radically! (: so good to know a good leader starting up a new season for Kolkata!
As I get ready and am super excited for the northeast, I cannot forget east India(mainly Kolkata) and its great need both physically and spiritually. It was really a big fight these last 2 weeks; something that has not discouraged me but pushed me to continue to persist in interceding for this city known as the city of joy. Yes, Jesus would they be joyful over you when they see that the things they have been looking for in satisfaction has been in front of them the whole time with open arms! Kolkata needs you Jesus! You know that and I trust You with this city to bring her back home where You have been waiting to drape her with the robe of righteousness in which Your glory will shine forth expressing this city a city free from sin and joy will be known again.
Much love from India!!
