† Only One God †
From my first trip to India 23
years ago, to my 50th trip a
couple of weeks ago, India
still amazes me. There are
over 100,000 gods that are
worshiped, but yet only One
God gives peace, healing and
eternal life. I have seen gods
that are 1 inch high to over 20
feet high. Some gods have
10 arms, some have an
elephant nose, some look
like snakes, and some are
half human and half animal.
But only One God sent his
son to earth because of His
love for us. This Son was
crucified, buried, and rose
again because of His love for
us! And now, we have the
opportunity to share His love
or should I say obligation, to
share this God with 1.2 billion
people in India and the rest of
Baptisms in Mumbai!!

made a statement
that brought it all
together. He said,
"Mercy doesn't ask,
'do they deserve it?'
it simply asks,
'do they suffer?'"

Halfway around the globe a dream is coming true. Gary Crowe has had a
desire for 20 years to somehow, someway make the life of little children
in India better and easier. Since his first trip to Vijayawada and Mumbai,
India in 1988 and over 39 trips after that, the desire to help children has
It is in the heart of God to raise orphans and destitute children and we
believe that preparing each child academically as well as spiritually will
enable these orphaned and vulnerable children to become strong leaders
who will help turn their country around. We know that it is a task we could
never accomplish without the helping hand of friends like you. We indeed
pray that you will be encouraged to partner with us to give these children
the future they deserve.
NEW SOUND SYSTEM FOR NLFA-New Life Fellowship Association (Colaba)
Hope In The Night purchased a new sound system for the Mumbai
Church. Since they do not have a permanent building, the sound
system needed to be portable. For special events they rent a large
auditorium and for normal Sunday services they rent a small
auditorium. The sound system needs to be able to work in both settings.
In any Indian Christian meeting/service, there is a lot of music. Music
is a great attraction to get people to come. From praise and worship
to special songs, and even scripture dance, music is the #1 way for
bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to the people of India!
MAY 2014 TRIP:
Mother Theresa one said, "The worst disease is not leprosy, cancer, TB
or HIV, but it is the feeling of being unwanted and rejected."
I was raised to know that there is a God that wants me. I have a family
that makes me feel wanted. I have friends that make me feel wanted.
I am very blessed. This trip made me realize that many people feel
they are unwanted, unloved, and have no place to turn. If Hope In The
Night can accomplish only one thing, it would be to show people that
they are wanted. Not only by a loving God, but by people here on
earth, whom they can see and feel. The team that went with me on this
past trip to India, did an excellent job of showing God's love to the
people of India.
I was very fortunate to have five people who loved, prayed, played,
sang, taught, and even gave medical care to hundreds of people.
Peter Johnson is from Wilmar, Minnesota; Terry Stutzman and his
daughter Heather, are from Milford, Nebraska. Shelley Lorenz and
her 14-year-old son, Luke, are also from Milford, Nebraska. Even
though many times there were tears in their eyes, they brought
a lot of joy to many. I asked each one if they would go again, they
all said, "OH YA!!" I have asked each of them to tell something
about their experiences in India. You can find their testimonials
