A Blessing to be Home

Elena Massa

Our first week home has flown by. Unpacking, jet lag and filing taxes have kept us very occupied. The highlight of the week was to return to our home church and be warmly greeted by our church family. Sunday evening our small group threw a welcome home pizza party for us. After three months of curry and rice, pizza never tasted so good! What a blessing it is to be surrounded by such loving friends who supported and prayed for us the entire time we were in India. We are grateful for all who have prayed and followed us on this blog.

As is customary, we publish a highlight video of each trip. We’re excited to share snippets of this year’s trip on the link below. It’s three months packaged into 5 minutes. We wish we could share the bigger picture, but that would be impossible.


India needs your prayers now more than ever. Elections are happening this month. The door to religious freedom has been slowly closing over the last 10 years under the current political party. A change to a democratic government is much needed. Churches, pastors and believers have suffered many difficulties as the present government continues to enforce anti-conversion laws and restraints on Christian events. We are humbled and grateful for the protection God has granted Cross Angle Ministries so far.  Regarding the church, Jesus promises us in Matthew 16:18 that the gates of hell will not prevail or overpower or overcome it. We must stand on this truth for India, for the United States and for the world…..until He Returns!
