When Pastor Osborne called to ask if the School of Christ could help financially with the expenses of the India SOC Reunion, I immediately felt this was ordained of God. These three men of God preached, encouraged, prayed, and fellowshipped with the attending pastors and workers, all former graduates of the SOC. The work of God, through the School of Christ, continues in India. Robert Turnage – SOC President

On Thursday, April 12, 2018, I set out on a journey to meet up with Brother Fred Wynn and Brother Daren Downs in India. We landed in Trivandrum on Saturday, and on Sunday the 15th we were in service with a local Pastor. What a blessing it was to see the people praising and worshipping the Lord in a wonderful way.
Our next stop was Adoor, India, where we began the School of Christ Reunion on April 16th. It was a three-day event that proved to be a very memorable experience. It had been 13 years since I had been in this very facility and now to be back in the same building, meeting with many of the former students of the School of Christ that had attended the SOC Reunion 13 years earlier, was amazing! The Lord showed Himself strong every day; the messages were powerful, the prayer meetings wonderful, and the outpouring of the Spirit was life-changing. The devil tried to stop the meeting but God prevailed! By the last night we had over 200 in attendance.
From Trivandrum we made our way across the country to Bantumilli Andhra Pradesh, home of Mizpah Pentecostal Church, Noel Victor, and his family. We had a special service on Friday night, April 20th, and the Lord moved wonderfully.
We must pray for this work! Surely the hand of the Lord is upon these men as they endeavor to reach the unreachable.
