I want to share with you a challenging ministry opportunity God has presented to me. During October 10- October 20, I will be going to India with a team from Elizabeth Baptist Church.
Our two-week trip will focus on seeking God to provide opportunities that will enable me to live on mission with God. The purpose of our trip is fourfold:
First, we will be allowing God to work in our lives through the personal enrichment that comes from this type of a mission trip.
Second, this Prayer Journey will help us focus our individual prayers by traveling to a foreign land and praying 'on-site with insight.' We will pray for the India people that God may open their eyes and hearts to the message of Jesus.
Third, we will be visiting an 'unreached people group' of which some are non-christian.
Fourth, our presence will bolster their spirits and support their work.
I'm excited about the opportunity and experience that lie ahead. I hope you see the value in what we will accomplish. As you can imagine, a trip like this requires financial support from a number of people. I need to raise $2,000 by September. If you can support me in a financial way, I would be very grateful. And, most importantly, I also need your prayer support. Prayer is the fuel that will allow us to be successful as we follow God's leading in ministry in India. Without prayer, nothing will happen.
If you would like to be part of this mission through your financial support, send a check to: Elizabeth Baptist Church 4245 Cascade Road, SW Atlanta, GA 30331
Please make your check payable to Elizabeth Baptist Church and write "Lisa Childers" my name on the memo line.
While money is important, it comes in a distant second to my need for your prayer support. Since prayer support is so important to the success of this mission, I would like to know if I can count on you in that area.
Because they haven't heard,
