I was GIDDY about our mission trip to India this summer. We were planning on bringing tidings of comfort and joy to a small team of believers in Maharashtra who have been tirelessly ministering to orphans and widows in their community in Jesus’ Name but now- I can’t go.
I’m so disappointed but after a recent emergency room scare and some rather strange, unexplained symptoms, the docs cannot give me their blessing to travel overseas; at least till we get some answers. I will be shuttling back and forth between Nashville and Washington DC for testing and treatment for a while.
Our Fellowship team is still heading to India; Marya and Bob Elrod and Jodie (Sweet :-0) She and her pastor-husband, Rob (fbctn.org) are close friends with the Indian pastor and his wife (who shall remain nameless for security reasons.)
This Indian church, as it happens, is down the road from Davey’s old stompin’ grounds! It’s hard to believe it, but our daughter’s “Gotcha Day” was 14 years ago!! After finding out her orphanage was recently closed for being involved in human trafficking, we feel even more passionate and purposeful about going next year.
Will you help us help this church family in Maharashtra? There are 35 girls at the hearing impaired school there and 45 HIV positive kids in their care center. The India team has provided safety and shelter for these children and they’re asking us to send small card sets, coloring books and board games for their play time.
We’d be thrilled to have you partner with us in one of these ways (or both of them :0)
1. Collect a few small games, card sets or coloring books and send them our way. Kids range from 6-16 yrs old.
2. Pray for our beloved team (both the Fellowship group and the India church) and pray that I get well so I can join them on the next trip!
