This year, I had the opportunity to be part of India’s Short-Term Mission team with 6 other brothers and sisters at CoaH, led by Pastor Tim. Our team spent our first week in India serving with Pastor Abi’s India Missions at the city of Bhagalpur, located at the end of the state of Bihar, requiring our team to travel 10 hours by bus from Patna. We also served with Pastor Biju, Pastor Abraham and Pastor Joy in the second week at the TIM center. Over the course of two weeks, our team had the opportunity to share the Gospel with over 1500 children and youth in Bihar.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus”. Pastor Tim had emphasized the importance of being joyful, giving thanks, and viewing prayer as a ministry from the start our training, and throughout our whole time together in India, and God truly allowed our team to experience and live out this verse during our time in India.
