Switch Youth Ministry Mission Trip 2007: India Aug 3rd- 18th
Dear Patron Blogger,
Many people today hear and see about the ill health, treatment, living quarters and general quality of life of
Church in the Word’s vision is to make Jesus real to our local community and all over the world. It’s a church wholly dedicated to reaching the lost by equipping us to reach the world through missions. I cannot think of a better way to spend my summer then sharing the Gospel with others, and I know my life will be changed even more this time as well.
I am excited that God has called me to India again this year ‘07! Last year we saw the lame walk, blind see, deaf hear, and many salvations and blessed families. As some of you may know we put on a 3 day youth conference in Kurnool which was a great success and many of the Indian people encouraged in the Lord. This year our focus will be on village ministry, administering the power of God to people who have never seen white people before, 70% are illiterate of their own language, and uniting villages to the cause and person of Jesus Christ. We will be performing several dramas and street evangelism as well as a children’s VBS (vacation bible school) and teaching/preaching the Gospel.
India is located between the Middle East and China. My team will be based out of the city of Hyderabad, which is in the Southern part of India. We will begin with training at our Church August 1st and then will travel to India where each day we will present the Gospel. This trip will be very challenging, both physically and spiritually but I am excited to see God use me this summer to change the lives of many who have never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Follow this link to see just one amazing miracle that happened while I was in India last year, this is me in the video, and please read the description to get more information about what exactly is going on in the video- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AC1I_4PoPLk
I will be leaving on August 3rd and returning home on August 18th. In the meantime I will be working hard to raise funds for my trip. The total cost of this trip is $3,000, which includes all expenses: airfare, accommodations, food and training.
I know that I cannot accomplish this work alone and I trust that God will provide the resources and finances necessary for me. I am asking you to partner with me by making a tax deductible gift towards this ministry endeavor.
I have several financial deadlines to meet: the first is June 15th when 50% is due. Any amount that you can give will be greatly appreciated. If you would like to support me in this exciting opportunity, please make checks payable to “Church in the Word” and return them in the envelope provided (also write my name in the memo area). Your donation is completely tax-deductible. Your support is an important part of seeing salvations on the field this summer. If you have any questions please contact me at 224-345-8080 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://web.mac.com/switchyouth for more information.
This is not just an opportunity to send Jeff Poms to India. I am giving God a way to bless you financially. When you sow into a fruitful ministry you’ll reap a blessing. God’s word says that when you sow into missions trip and become a “sender” you can reap the grace and blessing that is poured out on that work. So if 800 people come to Jesus because of you sending me there, the measure in which you give, it will be given back unto you.
