DURATION/DATES: A typical trip would last 7-10 days. The team would depart the US after work on a Friday and return by the end of the day the following Sunday. This allows team members to take no more than 5 vacation days off work if needed.

COST: A 7-10 day trip will cost $2,900 per person which covers airfare and all in country expenses. Funds may be raised through support letters, personal contributions and your own fundraising. All gifts are tax-deductible.

TEAM SIZE: 4+ adults/students – average size team is 12 people.

TRIP DESCRIPTION:
India is a beautiful country of extreme contrast. Your team will fly into any number of international airports in India. Within minutes of leaving the airport you’ll see slum communities living in inhuman poverty. With 1.3 billion people, India is among the largest, poorest, neediest, and most undeveloped countries in the world. In fact, half of the world’s orphans live in India.

Our work in India centers on empowering the church in India for the advancement of the Gospel in three ways: church planting, village development, and child rescue. We partner with networks of native church planting missionaries in a variety of states throughout India. They leverage everything we do for maximum Kingdom impact.

We take a variety of teams: kid jam Bible club teams, medical teams, dental teams, worship & music teams, church planter conference team, women’s conference teams, water quality teams, child rescue teams, etc. Each team has at least one concentrated focus. We will leverage the gifts and abilities of each individual team member. Whether you like leading in public or serving quietly behind the scenes, there is a huge need for you in India! All team members can expect to play with kids, befriend adults, and pray with lots of people. We get out of our comfort zone and seek to join God in His work in the midst of real human need.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
24 hour flights to and from India; bottled water; beautiful people; happy children; hot climate; dusty roads; nerve racking travel; traffic congestion; people everywhere; exposure to sever poverty; spicy foods; some American fast food; 5 Star Chinese food; safe & clean hotel; running water; showers; English toilets (most of the time); one carryon suitcase for your personal belongings; one large suitcase for team supplies; cold soft-drinks, but no ice; a ongoing week-long concert of prayer – LIFE CHANGE!

Christ-like love and attitude; commitment to group unity and fun; flexibility; patience; hand sanitizer; wet wipes or toilet paper; rain poncho/shoes; low cost, modest, comfortable, and cool clothing; personal snacks and tastes from home; pillowcase and 2 flat sheets, etc. You MUST understand the 4 most important needs for doing mission work: 1. flexibility, 2. flexibility. 3. flexibility, and 4. a good sense of humor!
