Hi Jacob,

We’re very glad to meet and learn from you during last year’s EAP at SG.
I have 3 questions to raise.

  1. When you are presenting the Jesus/Gospel among the Hindus, which character of Christ is appealing for them?

  2. In the midst of globalization, how can a Christian fit in in a pluralistic or multicultural society, when they demand tolerance yet they cry foul on any Christian ideas.

  3. Do you recommend EAP participants to attend the RCCA Training ? :smiley:

Thank you mera bhai
