I am just about to leave for Urbana Missions conference. Driving from Chicago to St. Louis. I have fond memories of past urbana - about the worship, message, standing at a India Mission booth, sharing about mission with students and everything else that goes on at such large conferences.
This is my third urbana and the Coconut book is being released there. I will be at the South Asian Lounge during the breaks. Dr. T.V. Thomas, past urbana main speaker and who wrote the foreword for the Coconut Book will also be there. If any of you are going to be there, pls come and see us.
Wish you all a blessed new year!
More blogging next year!!!
