India 2008

October 15, 2007 at 6:58 pm 1 comment

Are you interested in short-term missions work?

Do you feel called to minister to children in a third-world country?

Has the Lord laid it on your heart to share the gospel in a foreign land?

Can you sing or play a musical instrument, teach Bible lessons, share the gospel with non-believers, speak at women’s Bible studies, or simply love on the children of India?

Then maybe God would like you to go with us to India in 2008!


Ministry will include:

  • medical camps (depending on interest)
  • Vacation Bible School
  • teaching English
  • evangelism
  • giving Sunday sermons (for the gentlemen)
  • speaking at women’s Bible studies (ladies)
  • encouraging the saints
  • prayer walks
  • orphanage ministry

This trip is open to believers over the age of 16. Men, women, couples, families – all are welcome! If you believe God is calling you to India, please pray about this trip. Dates are January 3-April 10 or 14 (you’ll need to arrive in Virginia by January 2 and will leave from Virginia the day after we arrive back in the States). Or, for those interested in a shorter trip, January 3-23 (plus a day on each end for arrival and departure). Depending on the interest level, there may be a third group heading out to India mid-February and staying till April.


Cost will vary depending on the trip length and ministry, but will run between $2200 and $3000. Everyone will need a passport and a visa (tourist). I am planning to purchase my ticket at the end of the month and at that time will purchase tickets for everyone else committed to going. This trip is coming up quickly, so if you think that you’ll be joining us, you may want to apply for your passport now!


The orphanage that we will be staying at is located in Visakhapatnam, on India’s east cost. We’ll be working with Bless India Ministries. You can read more about that ministry here. In addition to our work with Bless India Ministries, a short trip to Bangalore is possible…I am working with a contact there to set up housing and ministry opportunities.


If you’re interested in going on this trip, please pray about it, and let me know as soon as possible. Also, if you would like more details, please send me a note – but ask specific questions or I may not tell you what it is you want to know! You can reach me through the contact page on the ALIW website.
