From the Pastor
Reflections on India
My recent visit to India was very productive and opened several doors of opportunity for the propagation of Confessional Lutheranism in Hyderabad and beyond! I taught, preached, and equipped nearly 600 pastors both in Guntur and Hyderabad. I taught several days on the Sacrament of Holy Baptism, particularly on Infant Baptism.  As a result, I was able to Baptize two infants and one adult at Luther center in Hyderabad. It was amazing to see what true Christian doctrine can do in the lives of the people when they were hungry for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Moreover, a small group of Confessional Lutherans received real wine (normally they use grape juice) first time in the Lord's Supper. My sincere thanks to Luther Academy, Memorial, and to our Pastors for giving me an opportunity to save souls in Hyderabad. I am excited about these opportunities and look forward to serve more people in Hyderabad. Thanks be to God!
