Pray also for the team of Pastor Ike Graham, Joshua Steiner and Benjamin Miller as they prepare to go to Myanmar and India in May 2013.  Because of the timeline and flight schedule, there will be many stops and layovers along the way.  Pray now that the elders in Myanmar who have requested this week of teaching on dispensational eschatology will be open and receptive to the truth of God’s word.  Pray too for the National Conference of the CGBCIndia as, for the first time, some of those men will also be speaking.  And pray for the gathering of information regarding the possibility of church planting among the tribal groups in India.
