EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2014
There are over 1 billion people in India. 80% of Indians are Hindu, 13% are Muslim, 2% are Christian, and 5% other religions.
My 2013 trip-
In January of 2013 I was able to go to India for six weeks and experience both the wonder of being in an entirely new place and the hand of God at work in the people there. It was a life changing experience I will never forget and this November I will have the chance to go again with churchSTL (http://churchstl.org/)! I am beyond thrilled at the idea as I think about the country of India and the people there daily. I would love the opportunity to go back and experience more of God and to bless the people there.

About giving financially and through prayer-
I will be saving my money through these next few months to raise as much as I possibily can.
If you feel God is speaking to you about giving, any money raised will go to my travel expenses and everything extra would be going directly to building a church there!
Even more important though are your prayers which would be much appreciated. There will only be a small team of us going and in a foreign country anything can happen. Please pray specifically for safety and also that we are able to share the love of Jesus and make a difference in the lives of of the people there.
