One of my great joys from serving on the Board of LCMS World Relief and Human Care was my visit to mercy projects in India several years ago. I was hosted and guided by Mr. Ravi and President Samuel who was the President of the India Evangelical Lutheran Church at that time. Their love for their country and their Lord, their commitment to the Gospel and their mission hearts for the poor and needy was striking. My trip was humbling and educational as I saw the work done among the handicapped, the orphaned, and the dispossessed.
The President of this church body is Rev. Raja Gambeeram now and we pray the continued blessings of God on my friends and all our brothers and sisters in India.
