We are working on the possibility of an Elim Missions Trip to New Delhi, India, in January of 2019, to work with our ministry contacts there. This is an outreach that is over 25 years old and serves its surrounding community by providing a K-8 school for over 500 children, vocational training for young adults in the areas of computer skills, sewing, and teaching, a medical clinic, and a program for special needs children. Elim has been involved in sponsoring children and this ministry for some time now. The mission trip would give us an opportunity to work with children and families who are being served there. This could involve helping children in classrooms, assisting in the clinic, visiting families of the children, offering VBS-style programs for children, or general support help. There will also be opportunities to visit other churches and ministries in India. We are planning other cultural events and sightseeing to take advantage of one of the most fascinating cities in the world.
At this point, we are praying and planning. We are recruiting both a “going” and a “sending” team. The going team would be those of us who are considering being part of the trip. The sending team would pray, support, and assist with logistics and preparation.
Please pray about this and seek God’s leading for your possible involvement. Look for an upcoming informational meeting and prayer time to come.
