INDIA 2017 Ministry Trip
November 9, 2017 to November 20, 2017
About This Trip
This team will visit Mumbai and Nagpur cities where we have various LNFI Outreach Centers; Orphanage, Ministry centers in slums, local churches. We’ll have many events planned to reach the communities and get to know the people by name.
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 hotels with air conditioning close to the ministry sites. We will travel by air conditioned vehicles. The hotel cost is based on double-occupancy rooms with bathrooms. If you would like to have your own room, there will be an additional cost and please email Johnathan at firstname.lastname@example.org
