GO INDIA College
Calling all College Students – this trip is for you! Most people who visit India will tell you it is like no other place in the world. It’s sometimes described as an ‘assault on the senses’ – the sites, sounds, smells and people are rich with history and vibrant life. It is a fascinating place with a heart breaking story, still stuck in a caste system that tells its people their life’s value is dependent on the social station they are born into. There are 2,033 unreached people groups in India, which equates to 1.2 billion people living without ever having heard the Gospel. It is one of the most populated countries in the world, located in the 10/40 window (meaning least reached with the Gospel), and only 2.2% of the population are Christian. And yet, in the midst of this darkness, there is a great light shining.
This team will come alongside our partner ministry’s house church plant as well as a Bible school where evangelists are being trained to reach the most remote parts of India and their neighboring countries. We will also spend time with a ministry to women who are victims of sex trafficking and their children where our partners are making an incredible impact by teaching them a trade that can help them escape the brothel industry. These incredible people are loved by God and made in His image – we want to share that unconditional love with them!
For more information about this trip please email the team leader, Melinda Price, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: College Teams are designed for mature students desiring to go deeper in their relationship with Christ and His love for the Nations. Applicants may be asked to submit a Spiritual Mentor Reference by a Compassion pastor, staff member or life group leader. Once accepted, you will be asked to submit a $100 deposit which will confirm your spot on the team.
