India Churches Visited by Michigan Disciples

A Travel Blog documents a trip to India by American disciples. One visitor, 70-year old Phill Morr, who leads the Grand Rapids church, had quite a challenging time - and God was faithfull

It may seem like sight seeing but I think it's important for the mission team members to get a firsthand look at real Indian Hinduism. The sights, sounds, and smells of temple worship in Madurai are just not what you could learn in a classroom or going to a temple in Michigan. So we are now in Trivandrum and our first day was awesome! We went to Poonthura which is the small fishing village behind the sea wall on the Arabian Sea. You can see all the resorts down the beach at Kovallum but you are in a village where the last American they saw might honestly have been me two years ago. Our cars got surrounded by all the school kids walking home. I got punched in the head, they tried opening the doors, Christy was afraid they were going to break the windows, and Lucy was afraid Christy was going to run over one of them! Despite the hassle getting in, there are so many lessons to be learned from Poonthura.
