Where in the World are the Worlands?
As many of you know God has shared His heart for India with me & this has become my life’s passion. The return trip this summer will be the best yet, as Chris & I travel to India together for the first time! The opportunity to experience missions together has been a dream since meeting & God has graciously opened doors this year. On May 23 we will go to Madurai ahead of our church mission team to prepare for the Vision Trip. Chris will return home as the team arrives on June 10.
I will lead the team to capture the heart of missions coordinated by a local Indian family. During this time, the team hopes to follow God’s leading & determine our church’s future commitment to India missions. The team will head home on June 25 to share this vision with the entire church.
My plan is to stay behind as a group of local health workers have asked for help. They are concerned about the number of malnourished mothers giving birth to malnourished babies. For the rest of the summer I will facilitate a maternal and child nutrition program. The program will equip the health workers to teach girls of marriage age (15-19) how to have healthy babies through a Biblical perspective of nutrition, home gardening, hygiene & bonding!
We are so excited about God’s call to India as a couple! This summer comes with a lot of responsibility, expense & time apart & we cannot do this on our own. Please pray with us as we prepare for this summer & what God has planned!
Love Jessica & Chris
