Experiencing God

Experiencing God.  As Christians, we’d all like to do it, but often wonder how.  In his book, Experiencing God, Henry Blackaby says when God speaks to you, you know it’s him.  He leaves no doubt in your mind.  He’s clear and unmistakable.  Recently, this happened to me, and try as I might, there’s no denying what I need to do.  By God’s grace and with his help—I’m going to India.

In many parts of the world, especially India, women are among the most oppressed people on earth.  Partners International is an organization that has been working in India since the 1960’s.  The goal of their women’s ministry is to replace poverty and injustice with dignity and purpose in Christ. 

Along with my church, New Song Bible Church, I want to know how to join in and be actively involved in ministering to these women.   January 2-13, 2012, I and a few others have been invited to visit several of Partners’ women’s ministries.  Our goal is to learn, interact, and see how we might set up long term relationships in key ministry areas.

I am asking my friends and family to pray for me as I take this step of faith.  There are many preparations to be made and challenges to overcome.  If you'd like to join in this work with me prayerfully or financially, you can contact me via email at cari at carijohnson dot com.  (Sorry for the cryptic type, but you understand...)  I’ll be posting updates to Married To The Pastor as I prepare and travel. 

Most of all, thanks for your prayers!
