    WHAT IS CHAI316?:  Chai means life in Hebrew and 3:16 refers John 3:16 which talks about eternal life. There are 808 million young people below the age of 35 in India.

All she asked us to pray for was that her husband would come visit her daughters and that he would come to know Jesus and come to church. The whole evening was very moving! Her oldest girl is a year older than my daughter, 16. She was a very sweet lady. Everyone we met here is very sweet and friendly. It amazes me that ...
