INDIA 2017 Ministry Trip
November 9, 2017 to November 20, 2017
About This Trip
We have a great well rounded ministry focused trip lined up. You will get to experience parts of India off the beaten path, that only locals get to know about.
We’ll arrive in Mumbai the first evening at a 4* Hotel (name given to team) to take rest. The following morning we’ll meet for team devotions and set the vision for the day. (Each team member will be asked to lead a devotion if they wish.) We’ll head out to the slums to minister to children with love and care. We’ll be ministering at a school to students and staff. On our first Sunday, we’ll be ministering at a local church in the morning. Then we’ll have time to minister after service in prayer and how the Spirit leads. We’ll take lunch. Then after lunch we’ll minister at another service, this one will be in the slums, working along side of local leaders.
Monday we’ll visit a local school where we’ll be ministering and then going on a sight seeing trip for the remaining duration of the day… It’s going to be adventurous to say the least……
Tuesday we’ll fly out to the children’s home in Nagpur to be greeted by Chandu and the team. The children we’ll be quite excited expecting our visit with anticipation.
India is a vibrant country with 1.2 billion people for a country 3 times smaller than USA. The people are welcoming and thankful for the help of ministry teams. But at the same time, it’s a very different vibe than what we’re used to in USA. The poverty is intense in which you’ll be prepared for in the Pre-Field Training. It will break your heart, and make you want to help even more, especially when you see the cute innocent little smiles endeared by the children as you meet them. By His Grace you’ll be part of the solution as we minister to locals off the beaten path, that most tourist will never experience this side of India or have the impact you’ll have to change lives. You’ll encounter an experience in India that only few will ever get with the LNFI team. Yet at the same time you’ll be well taken care of and cared for by a Johnathan Kraus who has lived many years in India plowing the fields for such a time as this.
Dr. Johnathan Kraus, Veteran Ground Worker in India and Founder of LNFI
Johnathan has lived in India since 2010. He’s been to numerous slums working with local church leaders to start Outreach Centers ministering to the children that once had no hope. He’s the founder of LNFI. It was a calling God put deep in His heart to dedicate his life to the children and people of India. The people welcomed him in as family. Many nights he spent the night at locals families houses in poverty. He’ll be able to guide you with experience, knowing the native language Hindi, and a tender love for his dream to bring people from America to India to show the vision of the work to Evangelize the most un-reached country in the whole world.
The team will stay in a 4*hotel close to the ministry sites in Mumbai. In Nagpur we’ll be staying at the guest house in the orphanage. The hotel cost is based on double-occupancy rooms. If you would like to have your own room, there will be an additional cost and please email Johnathan at firstname.lastname@example.org
