Lord is saying. I have wrought a great work, in and around
you. You cannot comprehend the care and attention and planning
that has gone into your restoration. Do not think that the years
that the locust has eaten have been wasted, for those years have
built you into the character that you are, strong and stalwart,
standing against the enemy's wiles. No weapon fashioned against
you has prospered but has brought you to this point where I can
use you as broken bread and poured out wine. Your heart is tender
and usable, for my broken ones, yet your spirit is strong and
resolute to stand against the enemies of their souls

I was so sad to leave
Brother Raju and Enoch when they handed us over to Joshua and
the jovial driver of the bus Manasseh. But Manasseh was so light
hearted and said something like....that this was a new day and
God had something exciting in store. He was great, and so happy.
He had given his life up to help Joshua and Caleb with the church
I found the streets
of Chennai bustling with people quite daunting and the sense of
something not quite right pervaded the atmosphere. However when
we arrived at the massive house that Joshua and his wife Caroline
had.. it was a great relief for me, like a haven of light in the
darkness. They had obviously claimed this ground and it could
be felt in the atmosphere. I was glad of the rest in this peaceful
atmosphere. We were to be well taken care of.
We were taken to Caleb's
office, he explained that the church had a policy of praying intensely
and that they had many wonderful breakthroughs. That evening we
went out on the church bus through the humid streets of Chennai
doing spiritual warfare. I soon learned why their church was so
Later we had a great
surprise. On returning home, a band turned up and the weirdest
looking Santa Claus like I had never seen before burst in dancing.
We danced with him. A good time was had by all.
