Mission Trip Summary

Over the last few months, we have been re-opening 27 previously closed churches in South Andhra Section – also known as SAS. We’ve trained 14 Bible workers and they are currently in the villages meeting people and working hard to restore the church family. We have also been cleaning and repairing the churches and cleaning up the church yards. We’ve conducted VBS programs. When the volunteers (such as yourself) come in February, they will be conducting revival meetings. During that same time, we will also provide “bush clinic” for villagers suffering from basic medical issues. During this trip, our team will be housed at a hotel in Miryalaguda. We will eat all our breakfasts and suppers in our own bedrooms and our lunch meals at local restaurants near our hotel.

Volunteers coming on this trip will leave the USA on February 16th, arriving into Hyderabad India on the night of the 17th/early morning of the 18th. We will travel to Miryalaguda to begin our meetings. Meetings will occur each evening. Day hours will be spent doing sermon prep, resting, and visitation in the villages (Indian people LOVE to have you visit their home). Our meetings will end on February 29th. We will travel to Hyderabad late that afternoon and fly back home during the early hours of March 1st. You will arrive home that same day.
