Bangalore & Chitradurga, India
July 15 – 29, 2017
Our team will be working with our missionary partner Prakash & Mary Lingappa from Rise India Ministries and several of their pastors and families building God’s kingdom in the southern state of Karnataka, India. In a country where thousands of gods are worshipped, we will be representing the one living God as we look to develop relationships in a culturally & spiritually challenging but fascinating part of the world. We will be hearing many spiritual stories of healing and physical needs in the cities & towns of Bangalore and Chitradurga. We will also be encouraging & praying with believers and nonbelievers, sharing testimonies songs & dance, prayer and spiritual intercession, developing relationship on the mission field, and seeing Jesus through the eyes the Indian culture.
The team will teach English as a second language & assist the Rise India Technical Trade School students and lifting up and encouraging the staff and little tots at the Lingappa’s preschool center, Kingdom Kids. The people are eager for you to pour hope and value into their lives through the love of Jesus. By the way, if you like Indian food, this trip is for you! The staple diet for lunch and dinner consist of rice, many types of curry and chapatti (Indian flat bread). For the women on the team, packing for this trip is so easy. Upon arrival, the women of the team will go shopping in Bangalore and have a ball trying on outfits and purchasing 2 Salwar Kameez outfits (short-sleeved tunic shirt & loose fitting pants and matching scarf). Modesty is very important in the Indian culture. We will be dressed like Indian women for the entire time we are in India.
Come experience first-hand God at work in India. Anyone with a heart to serve is encouraged to come. We are so excited to share this life changing experience with you. This trip is for those who want to be used in powerful ways that will grow them spiritually.
Needed on the team are some people gifted to lead the team in worship with a musically instrument and prepare a wordless drama skit. Also we need a medical team member, like a doctor, nurse or PA.
Please to learn more about the trip, and how God can use you to make a positive difference in India.
