While we were there, Brian preached in chapel services. He also taught classes for the senior students on the practical aspects of being a pastor and planting churches. On Saturday, there was a family meeting for all the college faculty, where he spoke on the Christian home. During this meeting, I took a session for the faculty wives on "Being a help, and not a hindrance to the ministry". I was also able to teach a Bible study for the college girls.

The college is located about an hour and a half outside of the city of Mumbai, so it is a very quiet and peaceful setting, unlike the city of Mumbai itself.
We were able to visit a few of Mumbai's well-known tourist attractions while there: the Gateway of India, the Taj Hotel, and the Arabian Sea.
