One thing I was involved in last week was a job interview with Rajendran. When I left India, I hadn't heard yet whether he accepted our offer to become Granger's first international staff member. But Rob's announcement makes it clear that Raj and Prema have accepted our offer -- this is great news!
This further communicates how serious we are about having a global impact. And, as I've talked about before, it is part of Granger's intentional laser-focused ministry in southern India.
If your wondering why we hired Raj -- he has been the point person responsible for leading the church planter movement that has resulted in over 69,000 decisions for Christ, more than 34,000 baptisms, and 64 new church plants.
