On the 31st of January, I will be joining a team from Nowbelieve (www.nowbelieve.com - a wonderful ministry focused on the presence of Jesus and the preaching of the gospel) on a missions trip to India. I've been involved in their ministry for just under two years, and have come to know a devoted, brazen and faithful community of people - all in pursuit of Jesus' full reward. This page will serve to provide you with some details, and an opportunity to help give towards the trip.
What's the deal?
This will be a two-week trip to the south-east of the country. Over a period of years, Nowbelieve has been holding missions to the same area and developing strong relationships with a local Indian church-planting ministry. We'll be partnering with this ministry to hold nightly evangelistic open-air campaigns to gatherings of 100-1000. There will be lots of healing, deliverance, testimony-sharing and gospel-preaching and the opportunity to get involved in it all! I am strongly confident in the missions leader, Dominic, and the relationship we have with the local Indian ministry, and there is a great sense of excitement with all involved. This action-packed trip will be intense in many ways as we travel around the state ministering, attending conferences, schools and hitting the streets, but we will end the mission in rest with a short debrief at a local resort.
As you guys know, I'm dead-keen on preaching and seeing people saved, healed and delivered. I feel a strong calling as an evangelist, so this mission is hugely exciting and important to me. This trip will result in thousands of lives changed forever, touched by the Lord. Last year I co-ordinated prayer efforts for the Nowbelieve team that were travelling there, and I was relaying testimonies from them back to their friends and family. I was stunned to hear testimonies of hundreds saved and making Jesus their Lord, blind eyes opening, the lame walking, tumours disappearing and people being delivered. Due to the partnership with the local church-planters - hundreds were connected to local churches. Absolutely staggering, but this is the heart of God for the nations. Let's expect more of the same! This trip will also be a great blessing to the team, as it represents a gilt-edged opportunity for growth and maturity. Lots of people will find that their giftings are realised and activated, returning empowered and full of faith. Personally, I know that working alongside Dominic (a brilliant man and anointed preacher) and other gifted followers of Jesus in this kind of environment will be huge for me and a great milestone as an evangelist. As some of you may know, I was greatly disappointed as our scheduled trip to another Asian country fell through last year, as the Lord had other plans. I believe this trip will redeem something of that.

Having felt peace and an abiding sense of God's commission to go, I'm believing in faith that the funds will come in for this trip. I'd like to ask you to prayerfully consider giving towards the cost of this mission. I would be hugely blessed by the opportunity to proclaim the gospel, a real dream for me. Not to mention, your generosity will serve to advance the Kingdom of God in India. As you consider this request, I'd like to encourage you to keep Paul's exhortation in mind:
"Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed." - 2 Corinthians 9:6-8
I will need to raise £1560 for this trip. This will cover: accommodation, food, flights, transportation, and the cost of putting on nightly evangelistic open-air outreaches to local villages. I'd like to offer you a fantastic opportunity to give and to partner with me in the Lord's work. Let's put our hands to the plow together, for the glory of God and for Jesus' full reward.
