2016 Bishop's Day in the NHD

December 07, 2016

Bishop Devadhar spent the morning of Dec. 3, 2016  at the Bow Mills UMC visiting the NH District. He presented a certificate to Interim District Superintendent Gwen Purushotham celebrating 100% participation (total $47,678) in the Imagine No Malaria campaign by the NH District.  After a brief worship service, the Bishop spoke and answered questions.  Over 50 people attended.

Some quotes from the day; Bishop Devadhar:

     "Evangelism is one beggar telling another beggar where they can both get bread."
     "God doesn't take sides in the politics of any country."
     "God has placed us, as God's children, at such a time as this."
     "At the end of the day, it is about how many people we have brought to God."

Pastor Patricia Wells, a part-time local pastor, spoke about being bi-vocational saying, "Don't feel bad for me because I have to work on the outside, because God is with me."

The Bishop also met with the NH District Committee on Superintendency.
