I am alive and well, thanks to the Lord’s kind upholding. We arrived in Ahmedabad around 4 a.m. today. Contrary to what I expected, I did not have any Internet access on any of my flights or in the various airports throughout the journey (except for the Greenville airport — please note that NYC and Dubai are apparently less advanced than South Carolina!). I do have intermittent access from my hotel. I did not sleep on the plane (other than a tiny bit of semi-comatose dozing), but the flights/connections went without a hitch and my luggage arrived safely on this end. In an effort to switch over to the new time zone, I only slept for about three and a half hours once I arrived at the hotel. I’ll stay awake today and get to bed early tonight, D.V. So hopefully I will have “fully flipped” by tomorrow. I feel amazingly well despite the lack of sleep. We are spending the day today at the hotel to rest, pray and prepare for the teaching load. We will also meet our local contacts for the first time at supper this evening. The sight of the traffic out my window is something to behold — a myriad of souls, most of whom are easily recognized as either Hindu or Muslim by their dress. Randy and I spent some time in prayer together, petitioning our Sovereign to overthrow the strongholds of superstition through the propagation of Christ’s glorious gospel and the advance of his kingdom.
I am happy to hear about the bustle of activity at GPC since my departure — two new babies. Praise the Lord for these merciful blessings! Please convey my love to all.
With all Christian affection,
Pastor Rob McCurley
