Our high-caliber team arrived in India and has had a strong start. Remember to pray for their continued adjustment to the 10 ½ hour time change, different foods, cultural differences all around, strong health, and being away from their families.
Their interactions with the local believers have been well received, and they have refreshed and encouraged each other – even across cultures. Also, the trip is now entirely funded as the last donations came in today. God is good!
We are intentional about our global trips, and they serve a tremendous purpose for our global hosts. We still have room on trips coming up this year. It is not too late to register for these…
