Fellowshipped with fellow believers
Encouraged one another in the faith
Trained national pastors in Bible study and church growth
Paraklete's first trip to India was a great encouragement, not only to us but also to our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ in India! We, and many national pastors hungry for the teaching of God's Word, traveled from far and wide to be a part of the Pastoral Training School in India. These training opportunities seek to equip nationals in the development of God's local church around the world, whether through face-to-face training or donations for curriculum to be created and taught.
This trip was face-to-face, life-on-life training as we were able to make the 24 hour journey to teach and learn from the national pastors in India. As we traveled, so did the pastors from their villages, towns, and cities, as Paraklete paid the way for each pastor's travel, housing, and food during the training, as well as offered a financial gift for each to take back to his church. Through much struggle to arrive, we were all united together to learn and study God's Word.
Not only was this trip a time of teaching and training, but also a time of fellowship and encouragement. Following the Lord and teaching His Word in any situation can be difficult, especially when such a belief is not widely accepted in one's country. Many of these men have chosen a difficult path, being shunned by family, friends, and countrymen to share the Gospel and train other Christians. We walked away challenged by these pastors' fervor to please God and can only imagine the masses of souls in Heaven won because of their passion for the Lord.
