Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Many have responded to our requests for support for our upcoming trip to India – thank you!
We have two suitcases – each at 70-pounds – with books for the library at the Mission India Theological Seminary; a sufficient number of Study Bibles for all the theology students Ken will be teaching; and gifts for Cathy’s students.
Several of you are generously underwriting 50% of our significant costs (~$12,000) for this one-month ministry trip. We developed a budget to include not only the obvious airfare, but also the costs of room & board, medical vaccines, curriculum supplies, etc. and it has been reviewed by select advisers for appropriateness for our needs. Cathy and I have made this trip to India twice before traveling in economy seating – and Cathy has paid the price for my frugality. We have decided that for the more-than-24-hour trip both ways we would search out (successfully J) discounted tickets for Business Class. We hope to arrive on Tuesday, ready to engage in ministry on Wednesday evening at the 2019 Annual Leadership Conference.
