For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God. Hebrews 11:10

I had the privilege of spending the past eleven months living in the Bronx, participating in a training and ministry program seeking to plant churches among unreached people groups (UPG) in New York City. My community of thousands of South Asians forms only a fragment of the approximately 800,000 UPG Muslims living in NYC. I learned many things about Islam, skills for engaging in spiritual conversations with Muslims, tools for thriving in long term, cross-cultural ministry, and deeper understandings about team life and work. Better still, the Lord gave me many precious relationships and interactions with Muslims and all sorts of New Yorkers. Best yet, He deepened my trust in His faithfulness, increased my boldness to declare His goodness, and grew my hunger for His glory to be known among the nations. I am deeply grateful to each of you who supported me financially and in prayer — may the Lord bless you for your investment in His Kingdom!
