Thippalakatta, INDIA Vision Trip

THE "ASK":I am going back to India this November 11-21.  Of all the places I've been, this country and these people have most moved my heart when I went the first time 11 years ago (when Crystal was pregnant with Jayden.)  I am looking for 100 people to partner with me @ $25 a piece.  This will cover the cost of my trip, as well as provide scholarships for the 500+ pastors and church leaders we will teach in a 2 day pastor and leader conference.  For many of you, I've been your pastor, family, or friend.  I've led trips or gone on many of the trips you have.  Now, I need your help to send me.

Good Samaritan Ministry (check out has been faithfully serving the poor, marginalized, lowest cast people of Souther India for decades.  I want to go and partner with them and see what they are doing.  They have an orphanage, an elderly home (old people die on the streets once they can't work), a home for women rescued from sex-trafficing), have planted dozens of churches, preach the Gospel, and train pastors and leaders.  When I'm there, I'll have the chance to do all of this with them.

I am leading a team of 7 people from Sisters, Oregon and VAST Church.  Once we reach our financial goals, we will keep going, as every $25 will go toward another scholarship for pastors and leaders to get solid Bible teaching at the conferene we'll lead while in country.
