The need for the gospel in India is great. With around 1.2 billion people in an area 1/3 the size of the U.S., it is literally teeming with people who need Christ. There are hundreds of different unreached people groups, each with some unique customs and, in many cases, its own language. In fact, India has more unreached people groups than any nation on earth.
A group from Faith Journey travelled to India in 2012 to share the Gospel. Our team of four shared the gospel in rural villages daily, including a mountain hike to villages that could only be reached on foot.
We also had the opportunity to conduct a two-day Pastors’ Conference. Training for the pastors is a desperate need for many reasons. This was a great opportunity to help strengthen the existing churches in South India. Two of our Elders were able to return to conduct another longer Pastor’s Conference in 2014.
Honduras and Ecuador
Led by Al McElheran, mission trips are taken several times a year to Honduras and Ecuador. They are able to provide medical and dental care to people in need, as well as share the gospel.
In 2015 Marco and Estelle Reyes will start working partially in Spain with Nexus International Missionary Agency to support missionaries who are already working in the 10/40 window, as well as Spain, and in the Vision 2020 project. Marco will also be working as a project manager of the construction of the”UNIBET” (Universidad Iberoamericana de EstudiosTransculturales).
It is their hope and prayer to move to Spain permanently within a year. In the meantime, they are raising funds for their ministry by operating “LA CRÊPERIE” is which is located in Bentonville on 8th St. near the Walmart home office.
Faith Journey also supports the Toombs family, who are missionaries in Mbour. Their primary means of reaching out is the Beer-Sheba Project. The Beer-Sheba Project is a working farm that seeks to combine a sustainable agriculture-forestry program together with teaching and training young men in the Word of God. Young Senegalese men come to the Beer-Sheba Project to work as interns. After graduating from the program they return to their own rural villages to run their own small farms more effectively, sharing their new skills to improve life in the entire village. In hand with this, they also return to their own local churches, equipped with a better understanding of Biblical truth and the ability to become leaders. Hayden spent most of his time at the farm, working with the local Senegalese interns. For more information about the Beer-Sheba project, go to www.beershebaproject.org.
