Clive’s Trip to India : 10th – 25th October 2013
I flew into Bangalore on the Friday night ready for the ‘Grand Opening’ of the new classrooms the following day.
Paul & Eunice Singh have achieved a truly remarkable job in constructing seven new classrooms over the top of the existing structure, fully integrating them into the rest of the school, with a staircase at both ends. Right at the top they have built a new church room which is able to seat 200+ people. I was very impressed with the design and the quality of it all.
The school has now over 1,000 students; it is truly a wonder to behold. Paul and Eunice are thrilled with it all.
Saturday was the Grand Opening ceremony, attended by people from the community, all of whom were fed with delicious food; Paul and Eunice work so hard to bless their neighbourhood.
On Saturday evening we had our first meeting in the new hall with pastors from the whole region (some came from as far as 400 kilometres away), along with all the older students who have been moving powerfully in the Holy Spirit since my last visit. It really is the greatest joy to see what the Lord has done in them. They became my prayer team – amazing! Altogether, I had four meetings with them. The worship was great; the Holy Spirit came and touched their lives, it was very encouraging. Now that they have built the meeting room we will be able to run any future conferences in the school premises during the school holidays – so much easier for everyone.

God bless the Singhs in all they do!
Monday night I flew up to New Delhi to be with Raymond and Abhilasha Massey for six days of the most powerful meetings I have ever been in. The Holy Spirit fell on us like it did here in ’94; it was the sweetest time with salvation of Hindus, Sikhs and backsliders, healing both physical, emotional and spiritual – amazing! Between four and five hundred visited with us over the six nights. Some of the pastors from other regions were overwhelmed as the Holy Spirit visited them.
Ragiv, from the Himalayas, went back from the conference last Sunday and the Spirit broke out in his church. He rang Raymond to say that they had been going for 5 hours and there was no sign of it stopping. It is very exciting to see what God is doing amongst them. India is so ready for a move of God; it was a privilege to be there.
The last four days of my trip were spent in Lucknow at Tony Anthony’s conference. About 5,000 people had gathered from his 600 churches. I spoke once in the conference and had a very fruitful time with Tony. He told me how thrilled he was with the changes in Raymond and Abhilasha following their return from our Eagles Wings School last year.
All in all, it was one of the best mission trips I have ever taken. Praise God!
