Two days from now the first team of volunteers will embark on a short-term mission trip to India. They will be continuing the work begun last year, in support of LHM ministry in India by helping to refurbish the 50 year-old Christian Media Centre (as LHM is known in that country). The trip was organized as part of the Global Impact Volunteer program and the group consists of volunteers from the California-Nevada-Hawaii District.
Over the past year, funds were raised, and a team selected and trained. Now we ask for your prayers that everything goes well on this trip.
India is a country of 1.2 billion people, yet fewer than 4% of them are Christian. The world’s largest democracy, and yet just earlier this year dozens of Christians were martyred, hundreds of churches burned, and thousands of homes destroyed in violence against their faith. 86% of the population lives on less than $2.50 a day. Yet, God is at work in India – today.
We invite you to follow the journey at www.cnhindiamission.org, where you can read updates on the blog, see pictures, and watch videos as team members post about their experiences and impressions in the amazing country of India. On the left hand side of the home page, under the fundraising thermometer, is a place to sign up for email updates from the blog, if you wish. You’ll even have opportunities to make comments and ask questions of us while we’re there.
