The Rob Skinner Podcast: Helping You Make This Life Count

May 20, 2024

In this episode I interview a couple in their fifties from southern India.  They had their own business in Bangalore, India and were about to celebrate their son’s wedding when they felt God’s call to go on the mission field to Ballari, a city of 700,000 people six hours north of Bangalore.  They moved in 2019 right before COVID.  They started leading a small church of 30 disciples and then entered the pandemic lockdown.  Listen as they share about how:

·        The church has grown from 30 to 135 disciples.

·        They have sent three young people off to a school for missions.

·        Thirty of their churches members went on a short term missionary trip to the neighboring city of Vijaynagar, reached out and now there is a church there with 18 disciples.

·        They studied with one couple who became disciples and went back to their home town and converted ten of their family members.

·        They are in the process of planting another new church in the city of Davanagere.

·        What motivates them to live a radical Christian life at this stage of their lives.
