LOVE INDIA TRIPS- 2017 Options: July 5-18 or Nov 5-15, extended option ends on 19th.
The ministry of P4PI in India focuses on holistic service using foot-washing clinics, dental & medical camps, motocross, drama, music, sports, counseling, coaching and personal testimonies to come along-side locals in impacting their community with help, hope and an introduction to the person of Jesus Christ who can truly change their lives. During these trips, you will get dirty serving, get real sharing and get emotional as you invest in and work along side some of the most amazing people you’ve never met and won’t soon forget. Some of you may be asked to training people using the experience and know-how that you have. Others of you will be that outside voice urging them to not give up and to put all divisions aside to unite as one in bringing hope to their generation. This is not a trip for the casual Christ-follower. This is an intense ministry trip in a country that will attack your senses, break your heart, and call you to action for the rest of your life if you so choose…the opportunity to meet needs are endless, yet eternal. We believe it’s a place you’ll experience Christ like never before as you offer yourself sacrificially in whole-hearted service to the overlooked and oppressed.
India is home to over 1.3 billion people, with many young people searching for hope, help and a living God who they can have a personal relationship with, who will answer their prayers, who will love them regardless of caste, class or their past. We know Jesus is the one who has been there for us and will reveal Himself to them.
