Bill and Laura Hewitt brought Bishop Dutta to Bishop Gadsden Retirement Community as part of our GIC Mission Week on Friday at 5:00 p.m. We welcomed the 65 people who had gathered to hear Bishop Dutta, and thanked Jan Beebe, and Martha Ann Heyward for inviting and encouraging residents to attend; we also thanked Executive Director, Bill Trayick, and Chaplain Huss and the staff for their preparation of our meeting space.
Bill Hewitt introduced Bishop Dutta who then gave a wonderful presentation on the Church in North India and in particular the Mission work of the Diocese of Durgapur of which he is the Bishop. This included a very helpful video which enabled all of us to see the people and places being touched by this mission work.
Delicious refreshments were provided by our Life Group, and opportunity was given for participants to visit with Bishop Dutta and ask questions. The evening was blessed by the Holy Spirit.
