Missions Trip to Bangladesh

Hello all!

My name is Philip Lindsay and in less than seven weeks from today I will be joining 15 of my classmates from the Judson University Christian Ministries department on a trip to Bangladesh. As a class we have planned every detail of the Short Term Missions Experience even down to the place we are going and who we are partnering with. As young leaders, we have all grown tremendously in our learning of how to plan and prepare for a short term missions trip. Part of that learning has come by making many mistakes and reworking a lot of the details. But God is shaping and molding us all through this experience as a team and we have learned things we will never forget as growing leaders. 

In Bangladesh we will be working primarily with young girls ages 6-12 who are either orphaned or need to be away from their family to escape being kidnapped by a radically Muslim group. Our job is to love on them and be a part of their lives even just for a week. We will be teaching english to them and seeking to learn all we can from the people there about what it looks like to be a believer in Jesus Christ in a primarily Muslim country.

I am very much looking forward to the time we will be spending there serving, learning and growing. But there is one obstacle between me and Bangladesh and that is $2500. The funding peice of a trip like this is an area as a team we have learned a lot about, and we have made some mistakes. I have 6 weeks to raise 2500 dollars. Any help would be absolutely appreciated! This experience has been a turning point in my leadership and God will continue to build on the foundation he has laid on me in this area of ministry.
