|Pastor promised that he would even sleep in front of our door every night to insure our safety. That was not necessary for God already appointed a guard of angels. There were a thousand times ten thousand and thousands of thousands. He smiled and agreed God is powerful enough to take care of his servants and he went to his own home just down the street to rest. He was very careful for our safety on the streets of Tenali.|
|Though our exhausted children fell asleep on the ground near the stage, and we saw little rodents and ;and crabs,|
|we never saw a snake or scorpion alive. The villagers warned that they were around and to be careful. Many people watched over the children through each meeting. Never did a cobra or any other snake threaten us.|
|I picture the angels surrounding children, Barbara, and myself at all times.|
|During every time I preached in the Tenali area thousands listened. I shared the three angels messages that the commandments are extremely important, the judgment hour is almost over, and to only worship God. I knew that Jesus was right there with all the promised help. Jesus said if we would lift Him up, He would draw all men unto him. Daily we prayed to be faithful in delivering the midnight cry in India.|
|Even our outdoor stage props were guarded faithfully by different Indian men through the night. When I thanked them, Nagarjuno said, "It is ok. I am not working for you but for MY JESUS."|
|One night after walking in the dark through sandy areas
that scorpions inhabit, I thought about the dangers in the dark. Every
time I put my shoes on in the dark, I thought about the possible scorpions
sleeping in my shoes. The Bible promise was brought to my mind.
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
The next morning as we went the same path, we found this scorpion that had just been killed. Our open sandals would not have been any protection from it's powerful sting. God protected us time and time again. Many times we did not even know when we were in danger.
