Interesting that neither his request for money nor his attached agenda list where he's going in India.  Suppose he's taking in a little sun and golf at a Goan coast resort?


When I was attending the GCC church, there was a GCC pastor who talked about frequent trips to India. He ended up getting in trouble for evangelism work in India. He was unable to continue without risk of getting caught entering. I believe it was Rick Whitney, but honestly don't remember.

If India is the same way today.....I don't think anyone will hear what the India faith walkers looks like. Culturally there could be more risk for believers.

I don't think that Rick Whitney has ever gone to India.

I don't remember who was talking about his experience. He is a GCC pastor. The culture in India wasn't friendly to it evangelism, eventually stern warning to stay away from entering India.

If GCC is thriving in India, I am cautious of the contents. The risks the believers part take of is higher than a Christian in United States. The things that they would share or make public is probably more limited,due to what being Christian in India.

I think you are think of Mike Keator, he has had a long term mission in India. He was arrested for handing out gospel flyers. I think in India it's not illegal to practice Christianity, but it's illegal to solicit or try to convert people or something?

You are correct. No soliciting in India.
