It was an important time in my life when after a short term trip to Mexico that I left University studies and went to Moody Bible Institute. I graduated two years later and give thanks. To have a similar college in Rajasthan one of the more needy places in the world comes as a great answer to prayer. I recently ministered there to the students and I thank the Lord for what HE is doing there. I pray for more students to go there and for more people to be raised up to prayer and to give to that great ministry.

Since I came to know Finny Philip in the late 1990s I have been an interested admirer of the Filadelfia Bible College, of which he told me. When he completed his excellent PhD and returned to India he has kept me informed of developments in the College and of the great work being done there in training pastors for established and new churches. It is an exciting and inspiring story. The challenges confronting pioneering and nurturing ministries in north India I can appreciate only from outside, but I can well imagine that they are considerable. But the training at FBC will, I am sure, prepare students in knowledge and understanding of Christianity and in the disciplines and skills needed for Christian leadership, in north India, as anywhere else. This comes with my best wishes and prayers, alike for students and faculty, and for the future of FBC
