Cornelius traveled 150 miles to a very remote village to reach the lost.   Cornelius reports the people in the village had never heard of Jesus or the Gospel before.  Cornelius shared the Gospel with them and 11 people accepted Jesus as their Savior!   Cornelius says it is his heart's desire to reach the lost the feed the hungry.  After seeing a short video he took while riding a motor scooter taxi over the ...

The Christian Tree

The Christian Tree In a few days it will be Christmas and a lot of us are going to be around friends and relatives who we see only at this time of the year.

Building A Church & Going For Water in India

We were recently sent photos from Pastor Cornelius of workers building a church in a Dalit village.   As you can see, it is a rather crude structure.  No electricity, no running water, no air conditioner, etc., etc., but the Glory of God is just as much present in this church as it is in any majestic cathedral with gold trimmings.  Probably even more so.  Other photos depict women going for water, sometimes walking great distances and carrying the load on their shoulders or head.   There is a great need for wells, especially in the extremely poor Dalit villages.   The cost ...
