Global Missions Team
Our Global Missions Team and the SDBC Advocates are connected to the missionaries who are supported financially by SDBC. Each of our supported missionaries has an advocate who stays in constant contact with them, praying with and for them, and keeping the GMT and the congregation informed about their work where they are serving.
We have several missionaries who, due to the countries and the situations they live in, must remain "under the radar" to safely and effectively serve. One such project involves our work in India. Because Christianity in India is not always safe, physically and politically, our work there is not something we can advertise or promote, especially on the web or in social media.
We have two of our people going to India soon to engage in teaching several groups of pastors and ministry workers, over a two-week period. This trip will include a stop at a Good Shepherd school in northern India, which SDBC has an ongoing relationship with. We expect to be able to meet with the school principal, teachers, and some of the students, and report back to the church all that we observe. This is a significant trip for our church as we begin to consider how to raise the necessary funds to complete the school facilities, allowing these Dalit students to gain an education that will aid them in rising above the low caste status they currently have.
Please pray for this team as they prepare to teach the pastors more about the bible and engage with the school. If you would like to contribute funding to the travel expenses of these two men, you may do so by simply noting India Missions on your giving envelopes, or your online giving. I encourage you to continue to support the great and effective work that we started nearly seven years ago, by helping with the expenses for the trip and, more importantly, by praying for this trip.
