I was asked to write a piece for the local Outer Banks Voice.
Here it is.

Hello Pastor Lawrenson. I am also a Pastor from Mumbaim India, I am glad to stop by your profile on the blogger and the blog post, I am also blessed and feel privileged and honoured to get connected with you as well as know you as a Pastor who is passionately involved in parterning with God to build His church. Govid-19 has become a global desaster and a life threatening virus which has taken so many lives globally and nations are helpless to control its manace. I am sure God has purpose it allowing such a deadly virus to hit all nations. These days we are focusing on 2nd Chronicals 7:14 bumbling ourselves in praying and seeking His face and turn away from our wickedness so that He hears our prayer and forgive our sins and heal our land. Fortunately we have four to five hundred people who have recently come from the Covid-19 countries and are infected. There are very few locally infected which is in 2nd stage. Hope it is is controlled so that our people will be saved from its deadly effects. The church is praying for God's favour on our country. I love getting connected with the people of God around the globe to be encouraged strengthened and praying for one another, I have been in the Pastoral ministry for last 40 yrs in this great city of Mumbai a city with a great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live. We reach out to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the brokenhearted, We also encourage young and the adults from the west to come to Mumbai to work with us during their vacation time. We would love have young people come to Mumbai from you church to work with us during their vacation time. I am sure they will have a iife changing experience. Looking forward to hear from you very soon. god's richest blessing on you your family and your Pastoral ministry also wishing you and your family a blessed and a Christ centered rest of the New year 2020. My email id is:dhwankhede(at)gmail(dot)com and my name is Diwakar Wankhede
