Well, after 22 hours on a plane and a few "pat downs" from the security we are in INDIA! We arrived last night around 12:30 am. I had an issue with my passport here at the Mumbai airport. The security / customs guy said my passport was "damaged" because the cover was coming off a bit.....he took me back to the boss/interrogation room.
After about 20 minutes and 20 different men coming in and out , staring at me, laughing, speaking Hindi, I finally made it through. Thank you Jesus! The enemy is already working o.t. The main customs inspector looked at me and said "I am going to send you home right now!" It is already obvious that we are supposed to be here.
They said I must go to the American consolate today and see if I can get a new passport. So we are off to do that and buy train tickets for next week.
We were picked up last night by a local pastor named Peter. He is a very humble, kind, Nepalese man. We are going to spend the next couple days with him and visit his church and their ministries. They have one that ministers to prostitutes children while the girls are working. The "daycare" is in the slums, and we will have a chance to go be a part of that this evening.
Please continue to pray for us as we pursue God and all of the things He wants to do in and through us here. It is definitely hot, and the smell of India is one that nothing compares too, but I love it!
Until I post again..... Chris
