INDIA MISSIONS TRIP 2017
This November Lifehouse Church will be taking a mission team to New Delhi, India to visit and serve the work of Tejas Asia, which our Church has been supporting financially as our main mission outreach.
Our focus in India is to support the Hope School of Tejas Asia which provides food, education and basic needs to less privileged children from slum areas in New Delhi. Education is the key to breaking the cycle of inter-generational poverty which provides children with opportunities to escape poverty, gain a voice in their community and experience a better quality of life.
If you would like to know more about Tejas India click here.
We reach more than 300 children through the school program and also a further 150 children through the bus ministry, where we take the program to other slum areas across New Delhi.
In 2016 our mission team also helped plant a new church “Welcome Home Church” with the Tejas Asia team which is reaching young people, family and business people from New Delhi to become a blessing to Tejas Asia and the city.
This year we will also be making friends in the city and inviting them to join the Sunday service together.
Due to accommodation and transport, this trip is limited to 20 people.
If you would like to join the team in 2017 on the trip please check the details below and fill in the application form as soon as possible.
It’s going to be an amazing time, being a blessing and being blessed even more by the kids we are helping!
