This past month we gathered at Dharay Gaon place (in Sikkim, India) for the opening service of our new church building. It was so wonderful to be part of this journey, which we started some years ago. As I sat there worshiping with the people of the community, I realized they are all first generation believers who are learning to walk with Jesus. I am happy with our Sikkim leadership team, especially Pastor Mikma Lepcha and Pastor Silas Rai and their team for their continuous trust in God along with the local believers. We have a family now overseeing this church and we will soon release them to be pastors. 100% of the funds needed for the building came from local contributions, which shows that the values we’ve been planting are bearing fruit. I was personally blessed to cut the ribbon and open the door to welcome the believers and the people of the community to worship Jesus in this new place.
