I am writing to inform you that, after much prayer, thought, and counsel I believe God is leading me to go on a mission trip to India and South Asia from October 24 – November 14.
The India portion of the trip will be with Alpha International Ministries (AIM), a ministry that is targeting the unreached in northern Asian and Africa as well as providing medical help and care for widows, orphans, and national leaders. The work I will be involved in will be in one or more of three areas. First, there is a pastor’s conference where the national pastors and church planters will receive training. The second area is working with orphans in AIM’s Giving Children Hope ministry. This ministry currently provides daily care for over 1,000 children in India, Nepal, and Africa. Third, we will be also providing some basic medical assistance in a medical clinic.
The reason I’m writing this is because I need three forms of support. First, I need to raise prayer support for the trip. We are going into an area which is openly hostile to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I need people who will agree to pray for our protection, God’s provision, and for the advancement of the Gospel.
Second, I also need for people to partner with me financially so I can have the funds needed to go on this trip. The total cost of the trip is $3692. To date, I have raised $2,671. That means I need to raise another $1000. Your gift of $20, $50, or $100, or whatever God lays on your heart, would be greatly appreciated.
Third, the majority of pastors and children that I will be ministering to, do not have the means to come to the medical clinic, training, and children’s camp. Funds are needed to bring in, house, and feed between 500 and 1000 pastors and children. Each member of the team has been challenged to raise $750 to help sponsor 10 pastors and children. So please prayerfully consider helping me to provide a way to equip and provide care for these pastors and children. The more money we can raise, the more will be able to attend.
I will also be going to South Asia for a week and a half with Brushy Creek Baptist Church in Taylors, South Carolina immediately following my trip to India. The team I will be with for that trip will be providing discipleship training for local churches. In addition to that training, one of my team mates and I will be providing post-traumatic counseling training to a few local ministries.
If you would like to donate towards helping fund the pastors training and medical mission, you will need to make your check payable to Alpha International Ministries with country name of the mission trip (India) in the memo section. On a separate post-it-note, please state that funds are designated for me. If you make your check out to me it will not be tax deductible. My name should not be on check. Please mail your donation to Alpha International Ministries, PO Box 1951 Mansfield, TX 76063.
If you would like to donate to help fund my trip, please make your check payable to me and mail your donation to 7151 Wills Rd. Cumming, Ga 30040.
Thank you for your consideration and for any amount you can give! If you are willing to covenant to pray for me, please drop a note in the envelope to that effect.
I leave on October 24, which is coming fast, and I still have a ways to go. Any help that you can give me would be greatly appreciated. If you cannot afford anything, that is perfectly fine, but would you please pray for the provision that I need for the trip? The Lord has shown me over the last few years that truly NOTHING is impossible with Him and I know that He will provide, but I need your prayers and support! Thank you!
