Kolkata, India

God has opened the door for me to be a part of a team traveling to Kolkata, India.  **Post a comment that you will commit to be a part of the prayer team!

We will be serving Kolkata Christian Fellowship, Mother Theresa's Home for the Destitute & Dying, Sari Bari (Christian based rescue, training, and employment for girls), New Hope School.

It is a very dark and oppressive place and culture. I ask you to be in prayer for the other members of the group and that the LORD’s purposes will be accomplished in each of us, in our team, and through us in all our interactions.   As you are most likely aware, India does not recognize missionaries.

Below is a picture of New Hope School

The volunteer teacher was excited over being given transportation.

The people in the village of Uddyan Pally live in one-room bamboo huts. Usually, there are more than five people to each hut, which are not equipped with electricity, running water or a proper sanitation system.

I will be praying for God's will to be done, safety, open and ready hearts to receive the Truth, and for you and your team to serve. Bless you!

I pray they will see the hands and feet of Jesus and that their hearts will be receptive to God's word.

I am praying, of course, for your safety. I ask that you be protected from accidents, violence, illness, etc. and that you come safely back home to us. I am very proud of you for doing this, because I know how much it is out of your comfort zone. I am praying for God's work to be done in a mighty way. I will be praying for you constantly while you are gone. I love you!

I'm praying... Very much for your safety. I know you feel you are being sent to impact someone there. I guess I'm feeling and praying that God is taking you to India at this specific time in your ministry because he has got God-sized things for you to accomplish here in Portland through Northshore Family. May God break your heart even more for the people of Portland and surrounding cities. May the foundation and vision you've already laid down be further impacted by those God has appointed you to meet. Gonna miss you.
