My trip to India

Hello all! I want to share with you guys something very exciting, just a few weeks ago I accepted an offer to travel to India with a team of 14 people to do some extraordinary work! Through Yorba Linda Friends Church our team will be partnering with Operation Mobilization and the Dalit Freedom Network.

On July 17th, we will set off to travel to Hyderabad and Bangalore, India for two weeks. While in India, we will go into the slums and villages with hope of creating relationships with the Dalit people.

The Dalit people or “Dalits” are considered the “outcasts” or the “untouchables”. They are denied access to public wells, public parks, basic medical services, and education. The ruling caste tells them that they are Hindu, yet they are denied access to the temples. Seventy percent of the Dalits live below the poverty line and only 10% of rural Dalit women can read and write. Dalit women and children are also often sold into prostitution as early as the age of eight years old. The Hindu scripture tells these people that it would be better if they were never born. Our team’s desired goal is to help end this abuse and liberated the Dalit people. Our purpose is to bare the love of Christ to the Dalit people.

Team members have been asked to raise the finances necessary to cover the expenses of the trip: approximately $3,500 per person. My team and I would greatly appreciate your help in raising this support. If you are unable to contribute financially, I ask that you would please pray that all the needs of this team will be met. Prayer is so important for this trip and for what we will be doing there.
