The Lord is my Shepherd, I lack nothing. 

Finishing up my India and China trip this week and looking back at the miracle of the Lord’s hands, it’s amazing. 

First story, I was in Bangalore visiting my team and all the prayers of many friends in GRC and friends in India was that His name would be honored and that I would have boldness to share. As the Lord was moving He appeared in a most amazing way. By Friday I was tired with meetings, dinners, all day everyday for a week and missed my family and I cried out “Lord encourage me!”. I went into the restroom as I was praying and met the janitor, and started to speak to him. Lo and behold I find out he is a believer in Christ. We hugged each other, praising the Lord for saving us and encouraged that we would be together at home with Him. 

Second story, in China we had a town-hall with about 500 folks joining, and my prayer was, Lord help me to honor your name and I want share about you with my team in China. The interviewer on a panel I was on asked why I joined Merck and God gave me the words to say how how I have the privilege to follow the Lord and how He cares for the marginalized and how at Merck we care for patients.

Who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 
2 Corinthians 1:4

Are you enjoying the comfort, peace and Joy in the Lord? Share Him with boldness and joy! Are you holding back from sharing Him! Pray and ask for courage! 

Thanks to all brothers and sisters who prayed for me on the trip. There are many more stories of the amazing hand of God in protection and caring for His own.
