From July 10th to 28th Mary and Abigail are going to Chennai, South India on a Mother and Daughter Mission Trip!
They will be helping to look after needy children in one of 3 childrens homes, working with Lightforce International and the Indian Gospel Mission. They will be staying at the girl’s Orphanage (35 girls from age 5yrs to 14yrs) in Guduvancheri, a small town, 45 minutes drive from Chennai.
Out of several options, both Abigail and Mary felt that God was saying that India was the right place to go! They will be helping the children in practical ways, with their studies,playtime and helping to teach English. The children are all orphans in some way, betrayed and/or suffering from family problems and poverty.
We are praying that we may be able to show them God’s love while we are there. We plan to share some kid’s worship songs, games and stories and also to bring gifts of clothing, picture books, colouring books and some teaching materials. We are asking God for prophetic words and are excited about God using us in healing.
This is our first trip to India although Mary has been to Nepal before.
- Please pray for good health, as Mary has had some problems with high blood pressure recently.
- For safe travel and that we both adjust well to the hot, humid climate.
- That we will be a blessing to the children, knowing how to help in the best way possible.
- That it will be a good experience for us both in growing in faith and in our giftings!
- That we will not get annoyed with one another!
- That we will see God do some amazing miracles!
- Please also pray for Bob and rest of the family holding the fort at home!
If you would like to support the trip financially as well as in prayer, that would be amazing! (Total costs for the trip are over £2000.)
