Our team finished a visit with the Baptist Convention of Telugu Churches in Chennai and Ongole. We arrived at Kolkota (Calcutta) this morning. We will have several meetings here today with the leaders.
Our team will depart Kolkota to Kharagpur, West Bengal this morning to attend the Annual Meeting of BOBBCA - the Bengal-Orissa-Bihar Baptist Churches' Association. We will deliver messages on the theme of"Rising Above... Reaching Beyond." We will also conduct workshops.
The Association has overcome quite a leadership crisis and is now under the able leaders of the General Secretary Rev. Samaresh Nayak, whom was bought in and trained by Imo Aier, the then IM Mission Consultant. The Association has grown from 12,000 members to more than 20,000 in the last 5-7 years.
