INDIA TRIPS

 

 

*YES! We are planning to return to INDIA in 2023. Dates could change slightly based on airline ticket prices.

February 15-25, 2023

India is painted by deserts, jungles, mountains, and seashores. , About a third the size of the United States and with over four times the population size, India contains over 2,600 distinct people groups. While most of its citizens are Hindu, contrasting traditions and cultures exist between people groups. The incredible people of India are resilient and diverse. The physical, emotional and spiritual needs in their homeland have touched the hearts of many. Joining together, we can bring HELP and HOPE to the people of India.

 
WHAT WILL WE DO? 

On this trip, we will serve. Although group activities are subject to change, here is a sample preview of what we may do on our trip:

  • Encourage children and youth in our child sponsorship program by visiting the community centers and spending time with the kids
  • Meet and show God's love to widows through a message and tangible gifts of a Sari and blanket
  • Assist area leaders in their ministries (For more information, email trips@gpartners.org)
  • Visit and dedicate new wells installed by GPPD

As always, your safety is our priority. Our partners on the ground know and understand the language, country, and culture. They will always have your best interest in mind. We travel to and from locations by van or taxi as a group. Translators are available when needed.
