Slum Dog wins Best Picture @ the Oscars... Reveals India to the West!

India cries out…
I am not a big movie goer but I had to go see this work about India. My great friend and missions mentor Jack Harris (Global Messenger Service) told me about this movie. So off I went to experience India on the big screen… WOW! I cried off and on during the movie so stirred with the sights and sounds my family and I have often experienced.
India was what moved me to action of obedience to the harvest fields of souls. Nothing I have found on this earth will move you like the raw desperation of humanity in India. The sights and smells of thousands of dung fires preparing supper for their families in Bihar will stir any man's soul. The masses of people, honking of horns, chi tea in stalls everywhere, cows in the streets, colors of dress, huge temples, deeply religious people, etc... Oh Incredible India!

I got to accompany one of the greatest missionaries of the modern time in one Jack Dyer to see Slum Dog. This was my 2nd time to go see the flick... I knew Jack would be impacted in an incredible way. Jack and his wife Shirley spent 7 years in the rugged Himalaya mountain region serving at Wood Stock school after 27 years of service in Honduras. The big eye opener is Jack did not get started until he was in his late 40's... he forsook the ways of Babylon and left the comforts of familiar to bring honor to the name of Jesus. I am humbled just to be his close friend...

I got some cool friends name Jack...

Jack Harris - Fenton, MO

Jack Dyer - Baton Rouge, LA

Both are world changers and passionate to make His name great in the nations!

Slum God will give you an idea of life in India. An idea is nothing like the smells... HA! Oh come on now, if my wife can handle it anybody can... she is amazing.

God call us to sell out for souls... Let the Word of the Lord run swiftly (II Thess 3:1-5). Lord give to us the deeper revelation of masses of multitudes in India in the balance of eternity in Jesus name.
