Linda Easton and Peggy traveled through a major portion of India to hold a series of women’s conferences in what Linda described as one of the most productive trips she had ever taken. She noted that even though the political influence in India is striving to turn the country into a Hindu nation where they worship anything and everything and the anti-conversion law is getting more rigid, she saw that Christianity is truly growing in India. Scripture is clear about the church’s mission is to share the gospel in all nations – no matter how hard the circumstances.
The two ladies had a very busy schedule that began with a women’s conference and a church service in Delhi. After a full day of travel, their next stop was a town on the border of Bhutan where they spent several days in varied ministry including a women’s conference that was attended basically by Bhutanese women who came across the border for the training, participation in a graduation service for a Bible of training program that also involved a number of Bhutanese nationals, and ministry among five tribal groups who were very young converts to the faith. Since these tribal groups are basically illiterate, Teach All Nations provided solar-powered audio Bibles in their own language and visual Bible lessons for each tribe. Their final stop on their journey was the city of Hyderabad, where they held one more women’s conference and taught at the Charis Bible College there. In the seventeen meetings they held, Peggy and Linda were excited to see the hunger in the women as they taught from Peggy’s Women for the Harvest. Book. She brought a suitcase full of books from the States for the women who could speak English. While in India, she arranged to have it translated into Hindi so that all can read it on her next trip. In addition to teaching, Peggy and Linda also ministered healing and deliverance – with a number of women healed from growths in the breast and several set free from demonic oppression.

More tragic than the personal disappointment of not being able to build the temple is the fact that David’s misdeeds injured and even took the lives of those who followed him. There are at least four such episodes in David’s life in which his rebellious, senseless, or disobedient actions cost innocent people their lives.
Of course, the immediate victim was Uriah, Bathsheba’s husband. The innocent Uriah died because of David’s gross sin of self-indulgence and his feeling of being above accountability. He could have turned his head the first time he noticed Bathsheba on the neighboring roof, or he could have changed his plans when he was told that she was a married woman. Instead, he pushed headlong with his evil desires and plan, knowing that no one in the royal court would dare to speak out against him as he pursued his carnal gratification — a sin that even snowballed as he knew that no one would challenge his demand to send Uriah in the heat of the battle with the deliberate intent of abandoning him to be slaughtered. Additionally, he knew that neither Bathsheba nor anyone in the palace would try to stop him from immediately taking her as his wife and that no tongue would dare to speak a word about the fact that the baby was coming long before the necessary nine months.
When those in leadership are able to live without accountability, those whose lives they are responsible for are the ones who suffer.
