It changes your life but only if you let it.  </li> <li>We are not trying to change their culture or to intervene with their tradition, we simply want to make sure the discrepancies in their lives do not affect their health, and spiritual wellbeing<p></p> </li> </ul><p>Links:</p><p><br>Youtube link for <a href="https://youtu.be/Z8uh4YhdJ9c">today's episode</a></p><p>Check out some heartwarming stories at <a href="https://generosityofgod.com/">Generosity of God</a> and share your story</p><p>Check out Pastor Kevin’s another podcast<a href="https://kevinwhite.us/kevin-white-show"> The Kevin White Show</a> and <a href="https://globalhopeindia.org/living-the-dream-podcast/">Living The Dream Podcast</a></p><p>Subscribe to a one-minute motivation series called<a href="https://kevinwhite.us/subscribe"> Generously Blessed</a></p><p><br>__________________________</p><p><br><strong>About Missions Changed My Life Podcast</strong></p><p>A weekly podcast for the missionary in all of us.

MCML Podcast E66: Hunter & Red Light District
<p>It has been a year and a half since Hunter has been to India due to the pandemic but his heart continues to beat for missions as, with the wisdom and insight given to him by our Lord, his next step is now seminary. He has all the trust in God that the knowledge he learned during his time in India will be used to further His goal and His calling in Hunter’s life for missions.</p><p><br>During his mission trips to India, Hunter has been to the red light district of India in Mumbai. For him, the people in the red light district were people engulfed in darkness, void of any hope. They sell their bodies to provide for themselves and their families. The only piece of hope they could muster was the hope that someone would take their offer and pay them. There was no love in it, simply a physical and monetary transaction. He could see that none of them wanted the life they have now. They were there because they had no other means of providing for both themselves and their families.</p><p><br>But he still believes that there is hope for everyone in the red light district: for the women, for their children and for their families. It is because Jesus didn’t shun nor shame any prostitute. Instead, he welcomed them with open arms and guided them towards God’s love. That is why Hunter urges us to go hang out with these people and show them God’s love. Even if it’s hard, even if you don’t want to see it, even if you don’t want to experience the darkness or even if you hate the fact that people go there, not the women themselves, but the people who are taking advantages of these women, come and see them, talk to them, show them that God cares and He loves them as well.</p><p><br>They feel trapped there. They didn’t ask to do this. And they deserve to have hope. They deserve to feel even just a glimmer of light in the darkness surrounding the entire district. Especially now that no one is going to the red light district because of the pandemic. We can show them that God cares and He hasn’t abandoned them. We can tell them that no matter how hard things are right now, no matter what happens, God will be there for them no matter what.</p><p><br>That is why we invite you to share the love of Jesus with vulnerable women. By giving them a month of groceries, your generosity not only blesses the women and their families but allows the church to make Christ known to them. $25 provides groceries for a whole month and each of these packets comes with the proclamation: Jesus loves you, Jesus is here for you.</p><p><br>Give now at <a href="http://globalhopeindia.org/grocery">globalhopeindia.org/grocery</a>.</p><p><br>_____</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

MCML Podcast E65: Pastor Manoj - Red Light District Update
<p>The red light district was usually very crowded and the women there would have plenty of business. But when the pandemic began to grow, their business dropped down to absolutely nothing, leaving them unable to provide for themselves and their families. More than 200 women and their families were struggling. The government tried to help by providing ration to the people under the poverty line everywhere but most of the women in the red light district did not have any legal documents which would entitle them to receive government help. Because of this, they are not able to receive anything. </p><p><br>The women in the red light district knew about their Hope Center that had a program running right there in the red light district so they began receiving calls from these desperate women and requesting for help. They started to pray for them, asking guidance on how they may be able to distribute food to the red light district. They were able to prepare the packets for the women but then Priya went into surgery and Pastor Manoj had to prioritize his wife. After her surgery, Priya asked him why he hadn't distributed the packets and told him to distribute it since she was well now, encouraging and challenging him.</p><p><br>They had a lot of challenges when they started distributing but God guided them. Now, they distribute house to house, handing four packets personally to them and they could see the joy on their faces. These women could not leave the district because they had bills to pay, they had obligations to their children, to their families, but Pastor Manoj believes the day will come when the city is ready and they will receive hundreds of women who are willing to come out of these operations to live a respectful life. They will be able to embrace them and their children in the city of Hope. But until then, what Pastor Manoj sees is these women really need support, they need church, they need everyone to love them, to be around them, to assist them in their difficult times. They continue to minister these women spiritually while, at the same time, helping them practically.</p><p><br>This Valentine's day, we invite you to share the love of Jesus with vulnerable women. By giving them a month of groceries, your generosity not only blesses the women but allows the church to make Christ known to them. $25 provides groceries for a whole month and each of these packets comes with the proclamation: Jesus loves you, Jesus is here for you.</p><p><br>Give now at <a href="http://globalhopeindia.org/grocery">globalhopeindia.org/grocery</a>.</p><p><br>Happy Valentine's Day, everyone.</p><p><br>_____</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

MCML Podcast E64: Pastor Manoj - Priya is Healed!
<p>In early 2020, Pastor Manoj and his family kept themselves busy exercising, walking, continuing with their daily life with God’s presence. Priya was also fasting for 40 days and would skip 1 meal a day as part of a diet program. She began to lose weight very rapidly and they initially thought that was a good thing until, last July, she seemed to be going into a very severe case of diarrhea. They tried the prescription the doctors gave her but nothing worked. They even tried having her drink only bottled water in case the reason why was because of the groundwater they were using but it also didn’t work.</p><p><br>She was finally checked and there was severe obstruction that had her urgently admitted and undergo surgical treatment. Even though it had been difficult to find medical treatment, they were finally able to do a CT scan and found the real reason for the problem. Priya had a tumor and she needed urgent surgery. It was later found out that it was cancer. Throughout this entire difficult time, Pastor Manoj thanked God and everyone who prayed with him for Priya. He also thanked everyone who sent money for the surgery and cancer treatment.</p><p><br>The doctors said she had stage three colon cancer and they were preparing Pastor Manoj for what was to come. They were talking about having 12 chemos over an entire year but that was when God worked to remind them of His love. From that 12 chemos, it was reduced to 4 chemos in a span of 3 months. By the second week of September, by God’s grace, Priya had completed all the 4 chemotherapy treatment cycles and all the reports became absolutely normal: no cancer cells or any symptoms. The doctors declared that she doesn’t need any more medication and they only have to follow up with the doctor every quarter to keep a check on her for about 2 years.</p><p><br>The Lord Almighty performed a miracle and healed Priya. Some of the doctors couldn’t even believe it. God reached down and touched Priya. He took her cancer away and brought complete restoration to the human flesh. For as long as we have faith and believe in Him, God will be there for us. That is why even with what is happening around us, we must not lose faith and continue to praise him. The pandemic might shut our churches down but not the good news. We can share God’s love with our neighbors and those we talk to. All of us see the glory of God, we only need to open their eyes to God’s love.</p><p><br>_____</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

MCML Podcast E63: God Answers Prayer - Interview with Pastor Pongom Part 2
<p>As of January 2021, by the grace of God, life is almost back to normal. Although there are still some restrictions in the city, churches are actually coming together like before for worship with some precautions taken however, as NCF does not have their own church building, they had been asked to not come together for the months to come. Other than that, they were allowed to travel, conduct marriages and baptism. Except for being unable to come together for SUnday worship service, life is actually back to normal.</p><p><br>Back in 2020, things were different. Historically NCF has been a church with members of a thousand young people, young people from Northeast India studying at various colleges and seminaries. Almost all of them wanted to go home during the pandemic and those left could not even meet with each other. They needed a pass to leave their home and Pastor Pongom was privileged to have one. He was able to go and see some of the people who were in need, especially those going to difficult times because of hunger. At one point, only he, one of their church members and their driver was allowed to go around because of the relief work they were doing. Their relief operation grew far greater than Pastor Pongom ever anticipated even after he thought they didn’t have enough funds, being able to help around 20,000 to 25,000 people.</p><p><br>God’s work was clearly in this. Even though many people have suffered, many have lost their jobs and had to move back, some have even lost their job, the offerings to the church only increased, not decreased. Offerings are going up for the mission of God. God really shows up during difficult times and our faith increases as we see God’s work. As a church, they have experienced God’s presence together and God’s work in all these difficult times. They manage to make the changes they needed to continue to worship and do God’s work even during this pandemic, things that have been a problem before like not having a good camera or even just a keyboard were solved. The pandemic was like a blessing in disguise. People are becoming open to the presence of God in their life in a way that they were not able to before. It opened the door for Pastor Pongom and the others to minister, to serve and to pray for these people. And these people prayed with them, raised their hands together as they opened their hearts to God. <br></p><p>_____</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

MCML Podcast E62: God Answers Prayer - Interview with Pastor Pongom Part 1
<p>2020 was a year full of challenges as Pastor Pongom attest with the challenges he and his family faced that year. His son, Theodore, was born in 2020 with his lungs not fully developed. The doctors did not see anything wrong but Pastor Pongom and his family still took all the precaution they could. His son’s condition worsened, an infection in his underdeveloped lungs was spreading and no medicine or treatment was working. The hospital the boy was in didn’t even have the right facilities to help him so they had to transfer him to another hospital. It was very hard for Pastor Pongom and his family, especially his wife who wasn’t even allowed to see their baby. All they could do was pray that their son live. He had even offered his life to God, begging that if a life is needed, let it be him and not his son.</p><p><br>His son had to be admitted for exactly one month, being born on November 2nd and coming home with them on December 2nd. God allowed this to happen in order to strengthen their faith and to remind all of us and to confirm His presence, His love and to let us know that He is able to provide. God provided all their needs and, even though many people, including the doctors, thought they were going to lose their newborn son, by God’s grace, He helped them go through that difficult time. Now, Theodore is a very healthy and happy child.</p><p><br>Pastor Pongom realized that this was a blessing in disguise, a reminder of God’s love for his people. During all this, Pastor Pongom had been worried about how they would be able to pay the medical bills that kept going up every day that their son stayed in the hospital when they had no money at all but God did not let them down. He sent men and women, friends and relatives, every day while Pastor Pongom’s church started praying and fasting, organizing a chain of prayer and the church leaders even raised funds. Before he knew it, the medical bills had been paid without him even having to borrow from anyone.</p><p><br>And throughout this all, Pastor Pongom still did God’s work. He prayed for the doctors and nurses in the hospital his son was in. They shared their family problems with him and asked him to pray for their family. He developed a relationship with them, most of them Hindus and Muslims, allowing Christ to be known to these people. God gave Theodore his life for a good purpose, to unite His people. And this challenge showed that his church is a strong church. It doesn’t depend on the pastor and it is filled with people who loved him and his family and took care of him in his time of dire need.</p><p><br>_____</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

MCML Podcast E61: Pastor B's Story Part 2 - 20 Churches in 2020
<p>Pastor B didn’t know why but he had always had this desire to plant churches. He first had the desire implanted in him while he was visiting one of the villages and he was lying on his bed after praying when, all of a sudden, the number 20 flashed twice in front of his eyes. He didn’t know what it meant so he started praying very seriously, asking God what it was about, what 2020 meant. Around 2012 - 2013 was the time he began to develop the desire to plant churches and, after praying for weeks, he realized that God was telling him to plant 20 churches by 2020. This was later confirmed when pastors prayed over him then said that he had a specific vision and that God is going to use him in a specific way. That's when Pastor B realized that God had placed in his heart the mission to plant 20 churches by the year 2020.</p><p><br>It wasn’t easy, especially when he was just starting. He didn’t know a lot of people like foreigners who could help but even in those difficult times, God provided. When he was praying for Bibles to distribute, he later received a parcel with 50 Bibles inside. Exactly what he had asked for even though he didn’t know who had sent it and he hadn’t shared his need for Bibles to many people. Foreign missionaries also helped in making his mission grow. It had been a slow process planting churches with only very few people helping but it started to move at a very great pace after foreign missionaries started to join, especially teams from Global Hope India. They got resources and people to help them, expanding their projects to things like clean water projects, clinics and other projects that benefited the community. Donations aren’t the only thing that helps India, mission trips also help them and they can have a huge impact in people’s lives. A lot of money may have been spent on travel expenses but more money were raised for projects such as clean water projects, volleyball camps, buildings for orphan cares, medical clinics, and many more. And as of 2020, with God’s guidance and blessing, Pastor B was able to plant 25 churches together with all the help he received from both God, the foreign missionaries and the community.</p><p><br>2020 was a challenging year for all of us, including for our church planter and pastor. Pastor B didn’t just need to take care of his family but also 13 pastors and their families. But even in these difficult times, God prayed for him and his family. He provided Pastor B with a miraculous way in reckless ways. People from other churches started giving to him which was very unusual. Even restaurants supported him, the 13 pastors and their families. They also received a huge amount from Global Hope India.</p><p><br>It might have been a challenge but it was a reminder that, no matter what happens, God will provide. It is a reminder that God’s church is God’s people. It is not the building but the people.</p><p><br>______</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

MCML Podcast E60: Pastor B's Story Part 1 - A Great Miracle That Changed A Life
<p>Pastor B was born in a Christian family but he has never been a Christian and never considered himself to have a personal relationship with Jesus. When he was 20 years old, he became very sick and the doctors could not find out why when his parents took him to the hospital. The doctors asked his parents to admit him to the hospital for observation but his mother said that they would take him home and just pray for him. He was taken home and was bedridden for days while his mother kept praying for him. He couldn’t walk or even move by himself.</p><p><br>Then one night, he was asking himself what was happening to him? Will he be okay or was he going to die? So many questions were forming in his mind and that was when he really prayed for the first time in his life. He had prayed before but this was the first time he had ever prayed with all his heart. In the darkness of his room, void of any light, he looked up as he prayed and asked that he be healed if Jesus is truly God. He said that if he was healed, he would serve God his entire life. Before he could even finish praying, he saw thousands of lights shining brightly in his room. It was so bright in the room that he could not open his eyes and he heard a voice saying that he was completely healed. He realized it was the voice of Jesus and he truly did feel that he was completely healed. He jumped off his bed and went to college the very next day. He knew it was a big miracle and the very first miracle he had ever experienced. Everyone was astonished and that was the time that Pastor B committed his life to God and accepted Jesus as his personal savior.</p><p><br>After his first encounter with God, he continued to live a normal worldly life as he went to college, ran around with his friends and started to study more because he wanted to earn a lot of money. A year after that fateful day, his parents sent him to Malaysia to visit his uncle’s family. In Malaysia, he was taken to a Chinese church for Sunday worship service. At the end of the service, the pastor has an altar call and starts to prophesy that someone there has committed his life to serve God but kind of backsidded now. He continued to say that God was calling him. This was his second chance.</p><p><br>Pastor B realized that the call was for him so he went forward and knelt down. He started his life to serve him and there was no turning back.</p><p><br>______</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

MCML Podcast E59: 2020-2021 GHI Update w/ Kevin, Kourtney, & Justin
<p>2020 has been a very eventful year for everyone. So many things have changed due to COVID19 and we have all been affected by it, some more than others. During this time last year, Pastor Kevin and Justin were still in India with Justin’s family but, with travel being heavily restricted, these mission trips have also changed. Yet Global Hope India continued on for it had seemed like God had been preparing us because we went virtual in 2019. We were prepared technology-wise and we continued to have communication with our Global Hope India office, partners, friends and family in India.</p><p><br>Global Hope India has always been known as a sending organization, focusing more on mission trips. With the international travel coming to a screeching halt, God used our board and our staff to pivot Global Hope India from being a sending organization to being an accessing organization. We may not be able to send anyone to India yet but we have been able to empower our Indian partners all over India and even Nepal, getting to see them work and getting to send resources and send prayers, love and encouragement.</p><p><br>We are very grateful for every donor, every gift and every prayer that we have received, no matter how small it is. We are very grateful to everyone who has supported us. We love you all and we thank you. We praise you in Jesus’ name and we hope you all have a Happy New Year!<br></p><p>______</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

MCML Podcast E58: Prayer
<p>Prayer has always been a core value of Global Hope India. We believe that we work but, when we pray, God works. The prayer in this episode is connected to the entirety of John 17. In this specific Bible chapter, Jesus prays to God before His betrayal and crucifixion. Pastor Kevin emphasizes how Jesus prayed for three things:</p><p><br>He prayed for our protection.</p><p><br>He prayed for our sanctification that we would each live for the glory of Lord for his purposes.</p><p><br>And Jesus prayed for unity by the grace of God.</p><p><br>And it is through these three things that we have been protected this year and we are still being set apart for the glory of our Lord. Even amidst all this chaos during this year, we have a lot to be grateful for but we must not take our protection, our sanctification or glory for granted.</p><p><br>So come join Pastor Kevin as he prays to our Lord for all the blessings and protection we have received this year and ask for continuous guidance as we move forward. Together, let us pray for our brothers and sisters in India and the entire world.</p><p><br>We wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!</p><p><br>We thank you for joining this episode and we’d like to invite you, wherever you may be, to come and join us for our international call to prayer which will be hosted the third Tuesday of the month.

MCML Podcast E57: Henry's Story Part 2 - No Limit
<p>Henry’s mission trips to India holds a special place in his heart. He had developed deep and long-lasting friendships during his trip and he considers it his best experience out of all his mission trips. It was a grueling trip to get there but it was also one of the most exciting for him, even all the hoops and hurdles they had to go through to get there. God kept putting on him and, when they got there, it was a totally different culture and a different way of life.</p><p><br>India had a huge impact in his life because, even though the difference between him and the people of India was huge, it was still the same. They both feelings, they both had heart and hope. They have so very little but yet so much more than himm. He realzied that it didn’t matter how much wealth he can imagine. These people have nothing and have more. Henry fell in love with that idea. So when he came home to the US, his eyes were opened. He saw his neighbors in their own community differently, without loud judgmental thoughts. He gave everyone the benefit of the doubt and jumped in with both feet.</p><p><br>He had also gone to other countries for mission trips like Haiti and British Columbia yet he can just relate himself to India. Coming back to India, revisiting families and close friends and doing whatever needed to do over there held no problem with him.</p><p><br>He came back to the US and fell on his knees in front of his beautiful home shows God’s power of making things equal for God owns all. It is a gift from God that Henry is a steward and is living his life as a steward instead of as proprietor. That is a work of freedom because now he has God’ guide to sustain the house, repair it and everything else in between. As a steward, he did not just impact people in North Carolina but his impact is also felt 8,000 miles away in India even to this day, to Haiti and up north with his family members.</p><p><br>Henry’s experience shows that there is no limit to what God can do in and through us.</p><p><br>______</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

MCML Podcast E56: Henry's Story Part 1 - Reaching Out Through Art
<p>Henry is a self-employed home improvement contractor from Raleigh, North Carolina where he is the owner and operator of his business. He and his wife attend Hope Community Church and they serve in the family ministry and the church’s Homefront outreach ministry. He is known as Mr Fix It and has built luxurious million dollar homes and God has used his hands and the skills that have been given to him on the mission field over in India. When there came a time when he and his wife were having serious marital problems and God guided him towards the church without him knowing. He accepted an invitation from a client who became a very good friend of his and, in the first service he came to, the pastor was preaching about his issues and it hit him like a break that this is how God works. The Holy Spirit worked for both him and his wife and they saw one another in the same church, hearing the same service and their hearts were both touched. After the service, their anger lifted and clarity came over him as he realized that he already had what he needed, that God is with us always, 24/7, every day of the year.</p><p><br>He built their home without any intention of it being their forever dream home and there was a part of him that wondered if it was a waste, a home with no purpose, but everything changed after his first mission trip in India. While he got a culture shock when he came home, he asked God why He blessed them with so much when other people have so little and that was when it hit him that it’s the people that have so much art to reach out and help those with so little. That was when they opened their home to all those in need.</p><p><br>They opened their home to people that were in financial difficulties, letting them stay with them for over a year so they can get back on their feet. Now, they were able to afford their own home. Henry and his wife also opened their home to church gatherings, wedding receptions, birthdays and other different occasions. He believes these people enjoy their home more than they do and they thank God because their home is not a waste. He blessed them with the stewardship of taking care of this home and, in turn, he and his wife blessed other people with the blessing they received from God.</p><p><br>______</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

MCML Podcast E55: Crystal's Story - A Wide World and Family
<p>Crystal’s a dental assistant, in Midland, Texas, and she actually works for the Midland Dentistry For Kids. She goes to Mid Cities Church and she’s a Sunday School teacher there as well. She has a twin and has been married ever since coming back from India with Global Hope India.</p><p><br>Crystal has been to five different countries on mission trips, one of which was India with Global Hope India. On her mission trip to India, her team went to a deaf school and she got to teach there. She was also able to bring toothbrushes and toothpaste, teaching the children about oral hygiene, making use of her experience as a dental assistant. Her team was also able to minister to them, through songs and the gospel. It was a very exciting experience as it was the first time her team went to a deaf ministry school and it was the school’s first time to have a team from the US as well.</p><p><br>The biggest adjustment for Crystal during her mission trip was the culture difference between the US and India. She had crisscrossed the US but it wasn’t until she flew to India that she saw a whole new world. While there’s a lot of variety all over the US, she can’t help but remember that she’s still in the US and she’s still in what she considers as normal. When she flew over to India, it was a whole new world, a place that she had very little exposure to. With a time difference of 9 to 10 hours, depending on daylight savings, it really was her flying into the future and, when she flew back to the US, she was flying back to the past.</p><p><br>But for Crystal, this mission completely changed her life as it opened her eyes to see God’s love through His people. Before coming to India, her family had been her parents, her siblings and her church. When she got to India, her family grew as she felt God’s love towards her, to His people, to the children she had met and taught. She realized that the bond between her and them was the salvation of God. Each one of her mission trips, not just the one in India, helped change her life. With each mission trip, her family grew and her eyes opened to the wide world around us and how God’s love encompasses us all.</p><p><br>______</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

MCML Podcast E54: Dylan's Story - High School Mission Trip Experience
<p>Dylan was born in Plano, Texas and is currently living in Holly Springs, North Carolina. He and his wife, Lisa, have been married for one and a half years. Dylan is a graduate from NC State University. He and Lisa attend Hope Community Church. Dylan was part of the military and is now a police officer with the city of Raleigh as part of the Community Engagement and Services Division. He and his wife are also COVID survivors. It had not been a great experience but it did help bring their marriage together. Dylan can sleep anywhere, even in the middle of the woods in a very uncomfortable sleeping position, and he has recently started baking muffins as a hobby.</p><p><br>In 2010, Dylan was still in high school when he joined Global Hope India’s high school mission trip. Dylan found the entire mission trip as great, staying in India for a week and a half, going to different churches and communities. His biggest adjustment had been the large number of people in India which was quite different from the States. He got to visit a boys and girls school and a leper colony. The leper colony was truly an eye-opener for Dylan, an entire village which he spent his time praying and communicating with them. He was also part of the worship for a big concert in the city where all the believers were coming around the city to pray and worship with them in a concert.</p><p><br>For Dylan, the whole mission trip invigorated him. It’s so easy for us to just be comfortable with our own little world but, by going to India, it invigorated him to be more involved with his community as a believer. He didn’t just want to have his own thing going on, he wanted to become part of his community and he is looking forward to the day that he could see God’s work overseas once more.</p><p><br>To those high schoolers who have never been on a mission trip or have never been to India but may be thinking about going on a mission trip to India, Dylan would like to tell them to just do it. He had plenty of anxiety when he was going there, not knowing to expect, but, when he got there, there were plenty of moments where he truly felt like he had grown mentally and spiritually. It can be scary to think about, especially to young people, just pray about it and trust God. God will be there to guide you through it. It is okay to be anxious and to be scared as long as you remember that you are not alone on a mission trip. You are there together with your group and with God. You are not alone.</p><p><br>______</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

MCML Podcast E53: Ken's Story - A Connection with the Families
<p>Ken was born and raised in Taylorsville, North Carolina. Ken has been a board member twice, serving his second term at the moment. He is married to Anita and they have been to India with Gloal Hope India. They have three daughters and six grandchildren. He holds a Bachelor’s in Business from UNC and he and his wife worship at Mount Vernon Baptist Church. He and his wife are both Youth Sunday teachers and Ken is also a deacon there. He is also a CPA and managing partner with Stancil CPA and Advisors.</p><p><br>Back in 2017, Ken and his wife did a ministry trip in a predominantly Christian village in Northeast India, working with the church in the village and helping out with various ministries. They spoke and taught at the Sunday services, working during the week with the young people, with the ladies’ ministry and with the children and youth. There was even a day when other local pastors came in for some training, focusing mostly on discipleship ministries. Each day there was an experience with different teams, different groups to work with and each day they had a great time. They even had a friend, John, who conducted a medical clinic throughout the week during that time. Their other friend, Eva, helped in the teaching ministry and she was an artist. She painted some murals on the wall and also did other paintings, beautiful artworks that the villagers appreciated and were enthralled with.</p><p><br>The highlight of their week was working with the children. His wife has a lot of experience working with children and doing kind of like a Bible school type setting. The children really responded well to the stories and she would teach them crafts they would do together. At night, they had a more informal ministry with the children, teaching them Bible stories. At the end of the week, they had a community night where the children’s parents all came to watch the children perform creative skits for different Bible stories.</p><p><br>Their ministry with the children was a huge success for both the children and the parents and they were invited to come back again, for a whole week sometimes. They had been talking about it and wanting to do it again but that was when COVID happened. But even that will not deter them. It might not be this year or the next but they plan to going to India again as soon as they can. Because the experience they had during their trip to India was wonderful and they truly felt that God is telling them to do it again, to go to India and help spread the word of God’s love and Jesus Christ to the children and their parents.</p><p><br>______</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

David's Story Part 2 - Small Miracles
<p><br>During Pastor David’s medical mission trip, one man stuck out to his memory. There was this one man who was shaking so badly that he could no longer work. He couldn’t do anything and Pastor David asked the translator to ask what he would like him to pray for this shaking man. The man asked that Pastor David prayed for his shaking so he took the man’s hands and started to pray for him. Before he could finish his prayer, God answered and the man’s hands stopped shaking. Pastor David didn’t know how long it lasted but he will never forget feeling such a blessing to him to see the man receive healing immediately. And through this small miracle, the shaking man realized that God is real. In the midst of the many other beings being worshipped in India, the one who answered his prayer had been Jesus Christ. Many similar things happened during that time, letting them know of God’s presence.</p><p><br>Pastor David also became part of the ministry in the red district together with the others and he would see the ladies who work there bring their children every day to them. Pastor Manoj, who has done an episode for this episode together with his wife Priya, had set up the ministry where he’s feeding the children and helping them get ready to go to school. Pastor David also did a medical mission team for these children and checked their weight and condition so the ministry could immediately address any issues that they found.</p><p><br>They also gave out medication and checked their blood pressure as part of their medical mission trip. A lot of them have never even been weighed before or their current age. People of different ages and religions came to their medical mission trip. No matter what religion they had, they still asked that their family and children to be prayed for. They believe in prayer and some of them become emotional during the prayer.</p><p><br>There are a lot of people who may think that they aren’t a medical doctor or they don’t have any experience with building and architecture, what would they do on a mission trip? You don’t have to do any of that part to help on a mission trip, even on a medical mission. You could do what Pastor David did and take their weight and height. You could even just pray for them. You can just be there and play with the children.</p><p><br>You don’t have to be a doctor but you can be a healer.</p><p><br>What they need and want is your time. In India or in any other country, it’s the same thing. Go to the children, go to the people. Tell them about Jesus. Talk to them. Pray for them.</p><p><br>Do whatever God guides towards you and you’ll be doing the right thing, the blessed thing.</p><p><br>______</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

David's Story Part 1 - The Cheapest Measuring Tape
<p>Pastor David is a dear friend of Pastor Kevin and he’s from North Carolina, having been married to his wife Kelly for almost 26 years. They have two daughters and have been blessed with grandchildren. He also has a large extended family including his own family of five boys and two girls. He grew up surrounded with the love of his family with cousins everywhere he looked and lots of food being prepared everyday for their large family.</p><p><br>Pastor David has had a lot of interesting experiences, some of which includes being a part of a living Christmas tree with Santa’s house underneath and being part of the filming industry in North Carolina which included being an accidental extra in Forrest Gump. He is also a certified history fan, participating in civil war reenactment and sharing historical facts whenever he preaches or teaches.</p><p><br>Pastor David has been in India twice, with his first visit to India being in 2018. His second trip to India was during the end of 2019, welcoming  the new year in India. During his mission trip, he was partnered up with a team of engineers that he got to be very good friends with and considers them brothers. They spent the trip helping different towns and people with their engineering issues like designing buildings and other structures including a school and abus park where the buses would stop in their town and spend some money. He even helped a pastor and his wife by creating some cabinets and shelves. He has also participated in a medical mission trip and he helped by measuring the people who went to get a check up using a $1 measuring tape. For every person he measured, he offered a prayer. No matter how bad their personal situation was, they mostly always say “Pray for my children, that they will get education and that they will have good health”. No matter how dire their own situation may be, these kind people were prioritizing their children. Some days, about hundreds of people were lining up so Pastor David realized that God was allowing him to use the world’s cheapest tape measurement to pray with hundreds and hundreds of people in India.</p><p><br>This is just the first part of Pastor David’s interesting stories. We invite you to come back next week for part two and we hope that you enjoyed part one!</p><p><br>______</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

She doesn’t just have a bachelor’s degree but a Master’s and a PhD as well! She and her husband attend <a href="https://gethope.net">Hope Community Church</a> and she is currently employed with the US office of personnel management where she is a performance manager. She’s a very active person with her love for soccer and participating marathons. When she was in high school, she carried the Olympics torch as an escort runner for the torch bearers, carrying the Olympics torch from time to time so it would never drop.</p><p><br>While she had been on a trip to six of the seven continents, her first trip to India was in March of 2011 and she had been to India multiple times since then. Each trip to India has been unique for her with different experiences and people to interact with even when she was visiting the same places.</p><p><br>Rebecca has always had a passion for missions and ever since her first mission trip when she was 14, she had always felt like God called to her for short term missions. Her first mission trip was to the Dominican Republic and, as she grew older, it became harder to find the time to do any mission trips. She prayed to God to give her and her husband a chance to serve God and God answered during the time they had been planning their vacation trip to Australia. The opportunity popped up for a mission trip to India led by our very own Pastor Kevin and they had gotten to know Pastor Kevin throuh the small group ministry which they had gotten involved with because of their trip to the Ukraine. The dates worked out, almost like the same dates they had planned to go to Australia. They prayed on it and decided to go to India and it was there where they found their calling. She hadn’t intended to make India one of the primary locations or countries to visit multiple times. For her and her husband, India was the place where they felt God called them. It wasn’t because it was necessarily a plan to go to India or they ended up falling in love with India and the people there, but God was truly sending them there for a reason.</p><p><br>______</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Pastor Manoj and Priya Talk Health & Missions
<p>Priya had been recently diagnosed with cancer and had to get a surgery. She had been suffering for many months and they were very concerned for both Priya’s cancer and the treatment needed. Our community rallied behind them and supported them with prayers and financial aid. The cancer may not be cured yet but, due to the support of the community, Priya’s suffering was eased and her current treatments and necessary fees are now brief now. They are so grateful to the community that supported them in their time of need. Not only that but Priya has seen the pain and side effects of the other patients for their continued treatment but Priya herself is doing well, feeling no pain or side effects. She knows that God is with her, giving her strength and helping her. She is thankful to the Lord and Jesus Christ. She and Pastor Manoj are also grateful from the depths of their heart for the community and how they stood with them, supported them, prayed with them and became a source of hope and light together with God during one of the darkest moments of their lives.</p><p><br>And it is because of the strength she got from God and the community that she sent her husband back out onto the mission field for there are families in need and they could help them with meal kits, food kits and so much more. Priya had always encouraged and supported her husband in the ministry and became his rock during the hard times. Even when they had not a single dollar in their name, she heard the voice of God and they decided to trust the Lord and serve Him by faith. He had been with her the entire way when she was diagnosed with cancer. She told him that she was okay now, the surgery was done, and he needed to get back out there for there were people who needed help. Even after the pain and tribulation, the mission stayed in her heart. With her support and pushing, he was able to prepare a lot and have completed the distribution for the first area, distributing even during heavy rain. Even during such terrible weather, he could see the happy faces of the people who received a packet, receiving it tightly. They were so grateful and shining with hope. But Pastor Manoj is not stopping there. They have been talking about it and praying for guidance for the last three to four weeks. They want to do something that can reach the patients, particularly the children who are cancer patients and outstation patients. They want to be able to reach out and feed them, maybe create a temporary program where they can come and stay while they’re pursuing treatments. They are still thinking about how to proceed but they know that God’s Will will be their guiding force behind any programs or plans they make.</p><p><br>Even in the midst of COVID, Pastor Manoj and Priya truly exemplified what it meant to have faith in the Lord. They found strength to face the situation and never lost hope. They trusted the Lord and God sent the community to them to pray and support them. For even in the darkest of nights, in the most terrible of storms, as long as we have faith and trust in our Lord, He shall provide.</p><p><br>____________</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Kevin's Story - The Beginning of Global Hope India
<p>Pastor Kevin went on his first trip to India in the year 1998 and it was a momentous time for him as it had been his first trip out of the USA, having not owned a passport before then. Before his trip to India, he did a mission trip to Louisiana. The chance to go to India came when he had been in church one Sunday morning and he sensed God was whispering to his spirit to join the upcoming pastors conference in India as a prayer partner that had just been announced in his church. He encountered a lot of problems then. He had never had a chance to travel out of the country, he had no resources or money, his children were still so young and he was unemployed at the moment.</p><p><br>That was when God showed him that where He guides, He provides. Pastor Kevin went and got a passport and a visa. Before he knew it, some of his friends from church had handed him an airplane ticket, saying that God would have us pay for his ticket so that he could go so they did. He ended going to India on a life-changing trip.</p><p><br>God radically changed his life with this trip. He might not have been part of those who preached during this time but he surrendered himself to that desire to preach. He made some friends and, along the way, he was able to speak truth into people’s lives and pray with them, building relationships between them and God as well as with him as well. One of the relationships he had been able to build was the elder of their church that he went with, Tom, the first Indian Partner that became one of the foundations of Global Hope India. Pastor Kevin spent most of their time out with him and his ministry, his orphanage and his group of pastors just really ministering out there. It was during that time that Pastor Kevin met Raja. As of today, Pastor Kevin and Raja have been friends for over 20 years and partners in ministry. They were like families living across the world, writing letters to one another, sending Christmas cards and, when the internet became a common thing, they emailed each other regularly, sending greetings and happy birthdays for their children.</p><p><br>Pastor Kevin wanted to share his experience with his children, show them how the children in India lived so they could know the true peace and joy found only in Christ. He prayed to God that his three children be able to see His work in India and God answered. From that, his mission grew to show everyone God’s love and guidance in India, to create Global Hope India the way it is now. It was because of God’s love and the support of everyone around him that we are now here with you, spreading God’s love and guidance, spreading our mission and we will continue to do so for this is our mission. This is where God has guided Pastor Kevin and everyone here in Global Hope India.</p><p><br>____________</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

GHI 2020 Update
<p>This year reminded us that God is in control and whatever plans we may have had for this year were not necessarily what God had in mind for us. But that does not mean that we don’t know our mission. Global Hope India has always had the mission to make Christ known among people that have limited access to learn and know about Jesus. We’ve been focused on the country of India but, while our mission has stayed the same, part of the mission has definitely changed completely so that we can complete this mission.</p><p><br>One of the high values that we have when discipling people who wish to go on a mission trip is flexibility. This is even written into our trip preparation manual. When you apply to go on a trip with Global Hope India, you’ll go through a six to eight month discipleship process where you prepare not only your luggage but your heart as well. Our plans for 2020 may have changed and we may not be in control but God is very much in control. Our plan for 2020 was to be full of teams going on missionary trips - lots of teams with lots of new faces. Over 15 teams were planned and we were super excited to meet new people but these trips had to be canceled.</p><p><br>We might not be able to go physically but every single day we are hearing of how God is at work. India shut down because of COVID19, closing everything down quickly without notice while most of the workers in India were migrant workers. These people were left to walk on the hottest month of May with public transportation shut down. It was an eye opening experience and a heartbreaking moment, seeing so much suffering. But listening to the missionaries and pastors we have there working on a mission field, God's really using the church to empower the people during these trying times.</p><p><br>Even through it all, there is still hope. It is a testimony to God’s will and love that the church is still able to step up and continue to stay strong. Facilitating short term mission trips is a very high priority to us but God made it clear years ago that we must have a strategy: PRAY, GIVE, GO. We might not be able to GO but the two other very valuable things that we have been called to do we can still do and we would like to share them with you on this episode.</p><p><br>In other news, I have also started to write a book last January and, even before the word COVID had entered our mind, God has pressed me that I needed to spend the first quarter of 2020 writing. With the help of such awesome people, the book <a href="https://audaciousgenerosity.com">Audacious Generosity</a> was completed in May and will be released on Amazon on November 17. Go to <a href="http://kevinwhite.us">kevinwhite.us</a> and get the links there for the book, including a free pre-release version you can download.</p><p><br>____________</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Zach's Story - A Witness to Change
<p>Pastor K's son, Zach, has been in India five times. His first trip was when he was 11 years old in 2001 and he has watched many places in India thrive and change in the past 15 years. He still remembers his first trip in India using AOL, going to this thing called the Internet cafe that he had to pay to get online and being in the only hotel with an A/C. The one thing that shocked him most during that time was how they didn’t have most of the conveniences we had, not even a refrigerator.</p><p><br>He remembers playing crickets with the kids and having fun with them. He couldn’t speak their language but that didn’t stop them from relating interculturally, teaching words and everything else. Those days were filled with laughter and all the kids loved it the whole time. Zach knows they may not have a lot compared to us but he was surprised at how generous they were even when each meal was just the basic to survive and the room the entire family slept in was just the size of most people’s closets. Still, they made Zach feel like he was welcomed and treated him with kindness and a smile.</p><p><br>Zach was also fortunate to see a leper colony grow with the help and support of the missionary team. When he first visited the colony, this group of people in India was given a piece of land by their government and was cast aside because of their leprosy. The government sent them to live in a few concrete buildings, complete with bathrooms, but without any roof. So they had to make roofs out of bags and trash and other things they could get their hands on. They were surviving but they were not surviving well and their needs were not even being really met. We gave them bags of rice and prayed over them but that was all we could offer them then. Zach had even asked if he could give some of the kids the shirt off his back.</p><p><br>God had bigger plans in store for this leper colony and Zach was there to witness it. Every time he was around the area, they would ask for him because they remembered him from his first visit. He has led worship services and prayovers. They talk to him and he prays with them. During these trying times, God had done some amazing things that Zach was blessed to witness - mango trees being planted, roofs being placed on those buildings, and a church being built.</p><p><br>Zach could feel God’s love for a population that was condemned unlovable in India. For even Jesus has been an outcast in the Bible and yet He did not let that hinder Him nor did He turn anyone away. Our Lord has guided Zach to look past what fear he may have held during those first few moments, letting an eleven year-old boy see His creation for what they are. God’s love is boundless and endless. No matter how different it may be, God’s love can be seen as long as your eyes remain open.</p><p>____________</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Kali's Story: An Eye Opening Experience
<p>Kali has an early education degree and is in college pursuing higher education. She’s also a full time nanny and attends <a href="https://gethope.net">Hope Community Church</a> in Morrisville, NC. It has always been Pastor Kevin's dream to take all three of his children to India and Kourtney (Kali's older sister) went to India when she was 11. Growing up, Kali saw Kevin going to India so much that, while she didn’t hate the idea of going there, India reminded her how Kevin was going away from their family. Because of this, she had no desire to go. When she finally went to India, it was because her sister, Kourtney, had moved there. When she left, she was heartbroken a bit but she remembered getting off the plane saying she will never go back to India. She had fun and loved being in India but the traveling and everything else had her disinterested in returning.</p><p>But she did return to India later on when she became a leader with Hope Community Church’s Student Ministries. She has been leading a group of girls since they were in 6th grade (and they actually just graduated this past spring). Some of these girls have also been interviewed here as well (<a href="https://globalhopeindia.org/mcml_podcast/emmas-story-of-fulfillment/">Emma</a>, <a href="https://globalhopeindia.org/mcml_podcast/unconditional-love/">Marta</a>, and <a href="https://globalhopeindia.org/mcml_podcast/hayden-shares/">Hayden</a> to name a few). When she returned to India, together with these girls, it was eye opening and the kids remembered her. They were still the happiest kids that she has ever seen in her life: they had so much joy and their faith was so strong. They were being taught about Jesus and relied so much on prayer throughout their day. These kids were six to seven years old and it felt like they truly understood who Jesus was and what He represents. It was very eye opening because even without the possessions that we take for granted, they were still more fortunate than these kids yet here they are, happy and faithful.</p><p><br>Kali advises that you should take your kids on a mission trip before they turn 18 because it will change them. It was so cool to watch high schoolers go because sometimes high schoolers can be stuck in their own world and not understand everything else. They are still at that age where they have questions and they can still be molded, can still be guided. When they visit India, it will open their eyes and they will come home as different people for the better.</p><p><br>____________<br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Julia's Story - A Missionary In These Times
<p>Julia is a single college student pursuing a bachelor in Science and Nursing in the <a href="http://www.ufl.edu">University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida</a>. She is currently living in Florida with her sister and is involved in <a href="https://www.olathecc.org">Olathe Church</a> where she is grateful to be part of a small group. She hopes to help serve in the children’s ministry when they open back up this fall.</p><p><br>At the moment, she has been scribing for a psychiatrist in downtown Orlando at a clinic that serves the uninsured, taking focus on the mental health aspect that has been brought by COVID-19 and realizing how much we were built for community and how much we especially were built to fully trust the Lord.</p><p><br>Julia has never been to India before nor has she done any missionary trips and had been planning to go there this summer with Emma. However, she is still a missionary for God has brought her into nursing school to be a missionary there, for both her peers and patients. He has guided her eyes to see the needs of those around her. Even when her trip to India has been canceled, this only brought clarity to her on what God was doing to the church globally. Because he is bringing the missionaries there who were supposed to go to India here, back to their hometowns, which are often the hardest place but most accessible place for missionaries like Jesus Christ. She is hoping and praying that our Lord could be redefining what a mission trip is supposed to be.</p><p><br>Wherever we are, whether it be in the field, at school or with our own family, we are missionaries that spread the Gospel of our Lord. We might not be able to reach those faraway for now but we can still nurture and grow our community here.</p><p><br>Our hearts and prayers are with Julia and the rest of our healthcare workers and those serving on the front lines.</p><p><br>____________</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Mary's Story - Touched by Mission
<p>Mary was originally born in Ghana, West Africa and is now living in North Carolina. She’s a widower with two children and two grandchildren. She has a degree from <a href="https://www.faytechcc.edu">Fayetteville Technical Community College</a> and is involved at <a href="https://cliffdalealive.com">Cliffdale Church</a>. Growing up in Ghana, there were long term missionaries who came and lived in her city. They taught her the Bible, the word of God at their school when she was just an elementary student. It was truly a selfless dedication and she learned a lot from them. Even now, she could still say the scriptures they taught her and the other children. It was their missionary that had a great impact in her life and influenced her walk with God. She feels that now it is her turn to impact someone’s life.</p><p><br>Her first trip to India, she visited an orphanage and an elderly home for many hours a day. It was during that time that memories from back home came to her and she knew that God was really working in her heart, initiating a call to save. She retired from her job in the banking industry so that she could go on mission trips whenever she had the chance and became a full time missionary, to be ready at all times. She wasn’t even scared about quitting nor was it a difficult decision to make for she knew that God was blessing her.</p><p><br>And last fall, she was on a mission with restoration girls, girls who have been rescued out of some form of trafficking within India. She fell in love with the girls and she loved every second of her time with them. In spite of poverty and the circumstances of their situation, the people still reach for faith and love. Just as the missionaries have touched her heart and she hoped she had touched the hearts of those she had met and been with on her own missionary trips, these girls also touched her heart. There is even one girl in her group that she would like to pray for because her life has changed so much and she is trying to know Christ. This girl would like to go to the Police Academy and change her life. She also wanted to change the life of other people for the better, just like Mary all those years ago as a young girl in Ghana.</p><p><br>____________</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Hannah's Story: Overwhelming Need for Jesus
<p>Hannah is married to her husband, Brandon, and they have a 20-month old daughter, Mia. They are actually expecting their second daughter in just a few weeks. Hannah holds a master's in Molecular Diagnostic Science from UNC Chapel Hill and a bachelor's in Biochemistry from Campbell University, both of which are located in North Carolina. She and her husband attend the Summit Church with pastor J D Greear. Hannah has spent several years in the choir and they have obviously participated in several small groups. Hannah is employed at Roche Pharmaceutical Company where she is a Senior Clinical Research Associate. She loves coffee and reading almost as much as she loves Jesus and going to India.</p><p><br>She grew up in a Christian household so she was exposed to Jesus her entire life. But when she went to college, she went through a period where she almost became an atheist. It was a very dark period in her life where she was very depressed and was wrestling with faith because of a number of reasons. One day while she was in her college apartment, she just broke down and found herself crying out to God. Afterwards, she felt a huge calm come over her heart and she asked God to be her savior and to guide her life. Her faith became her own from that moment forward.</p><p><br>Hannah has gone on two mission trips to India. She went to Orissa in 2013 where they took the children and staff of New Life Children’s home on a five-day excursion to the Capitol. She spent the week just loving on the children, getting to know them, and celebrating who they were. Her second trip to India was in 2015 where she led a team. The focus on that trip was to have a five-day discipleship program where they taught the older kids what it meant to be a disciple. They also went to a local village where they did two days worth of vocation Bible school with the kids there.</p><p><br>When asked to describe her missions trip experience in one word, Hannah said “overwhelming”. The mission trips were mostly positive but in itself the sights, smells, sounds, and the number of people in one place just assaulted her senses when she landed there. What were also overwhelming were the color and heart of the people. There is a joy in India that Hannah has never seen anywhere else. She definitely felt the people’s overwhelming sense of need for Jesus.</p><p><br>____________</p><p><br><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Scout's Story: On Fire for God
<p>Scout lives in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and works for the<a href="https://www.packers.com"> Green Bay Packers </a>as a sales executive. He goes to <a href="https://www.gbcommunitychurch.com">Green Bay Community Church</a>. Scott is originally from Birmingham, Alabama but after going on a mission trip to India, he decided to move to Green Bay. He grew up going to a Church of God church for about ten years. Eventually, their pastor left to start his own non-denominational church called <a href="https://acts2church.us">Acts 2 Church</a> and this is where Scout’s family still goes and this is what Scout calls as his home church. He went to the University of Alabama with a degree in Marketing. </p><p><br>Scout grew up in a Christian home where missing church on a Sunday was not an option. There was no doubt in his mind that God existed, but it was during his college years when his relationship with God became stronger. Whenever he was going through a difficult time, he found himself praying and just felt the weight being lifted off his shoulders. This was when he realized that he cannot go through life without having a strong relationship with God. </p><p><br>A co-worker who goes to <a href="https://gethope.net">Hope Community Church</a> invited him to go on a mission trip to India, and this is where he met Kevin and the rest of the GHI team. Scout shares that going on the mission trip to India in July 2018 were one of the best decisions that he has ever made in his entire life. He went to Mumbai where he was able to go to the red light district and also met some awesome kids at an orphanage. It was a humbling experience for Scout to see the people in India so on fire for God. He even feels that he got more out of the trip than those who they interacted with while on the trip. Seeing people worship God even when they feel like everything is against them was so humbling for Scout. Coming back to the US, he felt really blessed to have everything and everyone that he has. It was moving for him to see people be on fire for God. </p><p><br>Scout shares the story of how he came to live in Green Bay. His grandfather lived in Green Bay. Towards the end of his grandfather’s life, he lived with Alzheimer’s and dementia where he could not remember a lot of things - even their family members’ names. Through all that, Scout and his grandfather always had a connection with watching Green Bay Packers games. This was an amazing way for them to still have their grandfather as he can still remember and talk about the details of the Green Bay Packers games. Scout wrote a letter to Bart Starr and asked if he and his grandfather can swing by their place as his grandfather is a huge fan. Bart Starr invited them and it was amazing to see Scout’s grandfather talking to Bart. Scout also shares the story of how Bart Starr became instrumental in his employment with the Green Bay Packers. </p><p><br>When asked how missions have changed his life, Scout shares that it definitely humbled him and put things in perspective. It started making him question his plans for his life and if they are aligned with what God had planned for him. It made him think about what he can do to be more on fire for God and made him want to continue God’s plan for his life. Going to India on a mission trip just reignited the fire within him to want to do more with his life and for others. </p><p><br></p><p><br>____________<br><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Amber's Story: A Heart that Trusts God
<p>This episode is special as I get to co-host the show with my daughter, Kourtney, who is also the Teams and Operations Manager for Global Hope India. Amber is from Fayetteville, North Carolina. She is a pastor’s wife and her husband, Joshua, pastors <a href="https://cliffdalealive.com">Cliffdale Church</a> in Fayetteville. They have been married for 25 years, have six children, and two grandkids. In the midst of being busy with the church, Amber still finds time to be a fourth-grade teacher at the<a href="http://rccaonline.com"> Renaissance Classical Christian Academy</a> in Fayetteville. </p><p><br>Amber is no stranger to mission trips, she and her husband were actually missionaries for a while but prior to going to India with GHI, she has not been to India. India was in fact on her list of places that she never wanted to go. But in 2019, a lady from her church asked Amber if she wanted to go to India with her. Amber thought back then that someone else can go, but she felt God tell her that she needed to go. So she did. </p><p><br>She went to Hyderabad with a strictly women’s team and worked with the John Foundation. Some of the activities they did included Bible school for the children, job skills interview clinics, women’s ministry, and did BIble studies for their staff. But what really captured Amber’s heart was their ministry and the children’s homes of the orphans. It was a joyful experience to see how happy the kids were with what we would think is the bare minimum of survival. They were just so happy to show the little things that they have. It made her realize that things that we easily take for granted. </p><p><br>When asked to describe her mission trip to India in one word, Amber says the word for her is “trust”. She had to trust that the Lord was going to keep her safe. She also had to trust that the Lord was going to use her in ways that she may not even see all the effects. There is so much trust involved in that beyond the supernatural. And in light of what everyone is experiencing right now with the Covid19 pandemic, Amber says that Christians should be trusting the Lord that no matter what, we're going to follow Him, no matter what and where we are going to be, and trust in Him that He will get us through this difficult time. </p><p><br>____________<br><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Brad's Story: Testing and Growing Faith
<p><br>Brad is a graduate of <a href="https://www.appstate.edu">Appalachian State University</a> in North Carolina with a degree in Electronic Media and Broadcasting. He attends <a href="http://gethope.net">Hope Community Church</a> with pastor Mike Lee. And he is a professional videographer and photographer. He is actually serving at <a href="https://sitmeanssit.com/dog-training-mu/raleigh-dog-training/">Sit Means Sit Dog Training</a> where he enjoys combining his love for dogs with his love for photography. This means lots of photos for families and their pets. </p><p><br>Brad is a one trip alumni of <a href="http://globalhopeindia.org">Global Hope India</a>. He shares his mission trip experience where he went to Orissa and stayed at an orphanage with over two hundred children. Before going on the trip, he shares that he was really on the fence about it. He was thinking that a mission trip might not be for him so he started to pray about it. When he did, it became very clear that God was telling him to go. Despite resisting for the longest time and waiting past the deadline to sign up, he still felt like God was pushing him to go. And so he did. </p><p><br>He further realized that going was the right thing to do the moment he got to the orphanage. The children greeted them and he received a sweet handwritten note from one of the kids. He has kept that note and still has it up to this day. Brad shares how he was able to establish a connection with some of the kids there. He was amazed at how smart and strong the kids were. He believes that they taught him a lot more than he taught them through the way they live their lives. </p><p><br>When asked how missions have changed Brad’s life, he says that it has given him a different perspective. He shares that this different perspective is multifaceted and not just one particular thing. Going on a mission trip affirmed a lot of things for Brad. He realized that living a life of faith is not easy. He believes that God grows our faith by testing it. </p><p>____________<br><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Alita's Story: Jumping in Feet First
<p>Alita just graduated from Senior High School at <a href="https://www.wcpss.net/caryhs">Cary High School</a> and will be heading into college at North Ridge University for a Nursing degree with the <a href="https://www.navy.com/start?activity=1228855">US Navy</a>. She is employed at <a href="https://www.chick-fil-a.com">Chik-fil-A</a> as well as the Taylor Family YMCA. She attends<a href="https://gethope.net"> Hope Community Church</a> and just returned from India. </p><p><br>Alita shares her experiences from her first mission trip to Hyderabad, India. She talks about jumping into the culture with two feet first and immersing herself in the culture. She got to connect with the young minds of the children at the orphanage, and also got the chance to connect with women who were learning how to get jobs. For Alita, it was such a dynamic experience that she never knew was possible. She also talks about a memorable experience where she had to be taken to a hospital in India where she met an Indian national who had the Galatians 2:20 verse tattooed on his arm. She found out later on that her mom has the same tattoo with the same bible verse. When Alita got back to the US, she got the same bible verse tattooed on her wrist. This has become another way for her to share the gospel even more. For when people ask her about her tattoo, she gets to tell them the amazing story behind it. </p><p>Alita knew that she had wanted to go into the healthcare profession. She has always loved medicine and wanted to help people. But when she went to India and saw how other medical systems work, it made her yearn to help them. Her experience at the hospital in India just cemented her decision to be in the medical field and become a nurse. It made her realize that not everyone can get the same kind of healthcare. </p><p>When asked to describe her mission trip experience in one word, Alita says the word for her is “faith”. She believes that she could not have gone through that hospital experience if she did not have faith that God would take her through the other side. When she called her parents from the hospital, they showed faith. When she called Hunter, he pointed Alita to faith. It was God’s way of telling Alida to just have faith.</p><p>____________<br><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Caitlyn's Story: A Breathtaking Mission
<p>Caitlyn is a soon to be senior at <a href="https://www.wcpss.net/greenhopehs">Green Hope High School</a> in Cary, North Carolina. She is currently a Sunday school teacher at <a href="https://www.crosspointe.org">Crosspointe Church</a>, and she works at the <a href="http://www.triangleaquatics.org">Triangle Aquatic Center</a> where she is a Site Manager. As a Site Manager, she oversees the daily maintenance and the staff. </p><p><br>Caitlyn has gone on a 10-day mission trip to Hyderabad with Global Hope India. She was able to serve with our church partner and connect with the kids there at the orphanage by teaching classes and performing with the children. Caitlyn also shares the story of her connection to Hayden and Emma (both have also shared their stories on the MCML podcast). Hayden was Caitlyn’s very first friend when she moved to Cary. In fact, it was Hayden who convinced her to go on a mission trip to India. </p><p><br>Caitlyn shares a funny story from her mission trip experience where she and Hayden had to sleep in the “swamp room” of a three-star hotel. You need to listen to her story to find out why it’s called the “swamp room”. She also shares some of the adjustments that she needed to make while in India which includes getting used to wearing pants every day. India’s modesty level is a lot higher than the US and so all the females were encouraged to not wear shorts outside their hotel room to avoid being stared at. </p><p><br>When asked how missions have changed her life, Caitlyn says that she started praying more than she did before. Where she used to pray for a meal, before going to sleep, and maybe once or twice a week during her day; she now talks to God every day - when going to work, coming home from work, and even while working she tries to talk to God as much as she can. If she will describe her mission trip in one word, the word would be “breathtaking”. Everything that she saw in India was mind-blowingly beautiful and their culture was something to be admired. </p><p><br> ____________<br><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

David's Story - Being a Light in the World of Darkness
<p>David is from Durham, North Carolina. His dad, Chris, is a Global Hope India trip alumni and board member. As a kid, he grew up going to church with his dad who made sure that they always went to church. But it just felt like going through the motions for David, and it was not so much about faith and really trusting and believing in God. Later on in life, he turned away from God due to things that happened to him. So he turned to drugs and spent over a decade addicted to drugs. About a year and a half ago, he went to live with his mom and just had the feeling that he needed to get some help. So he told his dad that he needed to go to rehab and he went to <a href="http://www.convertinghearts.org">Converting Hearts</a> which is a Christian faith-based rehab center. </p><p>Converting Hearts is where he met Pastor Doug who has an amazing, no holds barred teacher. And it was incredible for David as he learned more and more about the Bible through Pastor Doug. He started to really feel God’s presence in his life and that’s when he actually actually felt the Holy Spirit coming into his life. He had already cleaned up his act and was sober for some time when his dad asked him if he wanted to go to India with Kevin and Justin. David agreed to go and shares that it was probably one of the best experiences of his entire life. That mission trip became a part of his healing. <br></p><p>The mission trip to India was indescribable for David. He used to be so incredibly selfish and always loved helping people, but helping people for the wrong reasons. And to really just put himself with God and to walk His path for your life and to do something unto Him for others was just the most amazing feeling. From then on, David knew that if he returned to doing drugs, he could not be a light in the world of darkness. He knew that if he goes back to drugs, he cannot do the things that God wanted him to do. He knows that God has a lot in store for him and He is making sure that David has some more patience. This is one of the things that he’s learning right now. He knows that God's future plans for him are just going to be great. And he will trust in Him and His plans fully - 100%. </p><p>David talks about how sharing his story with high school students in India became a pivotal moment for him. After the mission trip to India was over, he came back full of vision. And not only was he focused on what God had just done, but he was already seeing a vision of what He was going to do in the future. David wants to be able to spread the word of God and be able to provide physical help at the same time. And this is the reason why he took a class in phlebotomy. He knew that he could be very useful for the <a href="https://www.icrc.org/en">International Red Cross</a> because they don't have doctors and nurses that want to travel. When asked to describe the mission trip in one word, David said, “indescribable”. Everything that he experienced and learned so far through God’s grace has been indescribable. <br></p><p>____________<br><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Rebekah's Story - The Spirit of Excitement
<p>Rebekah is from Fort Worth, Texas. She is a nurse and she graduated from <a href="https://www.tcu.edu">Texas Christian University</a>. She attends the <a href="https://www.ccbcfamily.org">Christ Chapel Bible Church</a> where she is involved in the young adult ministry. She volunteers there as a small group leader for the high school ministry. Rebekah is an ER nurse in the in-patient psychiatric care unit for adults and adolescents at the <a href="https://mesasprings.com">Mesa Springs Hospital</a> in Fort Worth, Texas. Rebekah lost her mom when she was 11 years old. When she was in fifth grade, her mom was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. This was an intense period as she remembers seeing her mom going through a lot of treatment. Her mom passed away in just less than a year after her diagnosis. Rebekah remembers having such peace from the Lord and just remembering that her mom would be in heaven and she would see her there. God gave her faith at that moment. </p><p><br>Rebekah shares her experiences while on a mission trip to India. They set up medical clinics and went door to door to share the gospel with the women in the red light district. It was sobering for her to meet with the women and hear some of their stories. She talks about how open the women were to prayer. It was an amazing experience for her to go to the red light district where it is spiritually dark, but when she’s going in the presence of Christ, she feels protected and also appointed to be there. And that makes all the difference in the world. </p><p><br>For Rebekah, her life has been changed by missions by opening her eyes and by God showing her how to have a heart for the world. It is such a privilege and joy to use her gifts as a nurse to serve and bless those who need to hear about Him. We can be in prayer, help financially, and just be part of what He's doing all over the world. Rebekah feels that God specifically continues to give her a heart for India. </p><p><br>When asked to describe her mission trip experience in one word, Rebekah says, “exciting”. She has had the heart and desire to go for several years and it was definitely exciting for her when she finally got to go to India. It was also exciting for her to just be on the mission field and share the gospel, serve at the clinics, and touch lives at the same time. Rebekah also encourages those who are thinking about going on a mission trip when the opportunity to go returns. She says to just prepare for God and to be able to touch lives through His spirit in ways that they would never expect.</p><p> ____________<br><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Josh's Story: Miracles and Appreciating Differences
<p><br>Josh is from Los Angeles, California. His parents were born in Korea, which makes Josh a second-generation Korean American. Josh just graduated from <a href="https://ncsu.edu">NC State University</a> in Raleigh, North Carolina. He attends the <a href="https://summitchurch.com">Summit Church</a> and he works in a Korean barbecue cafe as well as owns a Korean barbecue food truck. In 2016, Josh was involved in a terrorist attack during an international layover. He was going on his second trip to Uzbekistan for a short term mission trip. The layover was in Istanbul, Turkey, and they were just supposed to be there for eight hours or so but near the end of that eight-hour layover, as they were going to the terminal gate, a group of ISIS terrorists barged into the security lobby and started shooting off AK-47s then blew themselves up. This happened right down the hallway from where they were. Thankfully, everybody in their team was safe. Looking back on that incident, Josh realized that he is just a very small piece in a larger machine of life. </p><p><br>In the summer of 2018, Josh went to Mumbai, India with <a href="https://globalhopeindia.org">Global Hope India</a>. Their purpose there was to partner with the local Indian church in Mumbai and partner with them in hosting free medical clinics, working with neighborhoods there in some of their community outreach programs. Aside from India, Josh has been blessed with the opportunity to also go to Pakistan, The United Arab Emirates, and Turkey on mission trips. He recognizes that not everyone has been given the opportunity to do this. He shares that he has been fortunate to have so many people around him who were willing to invest in his growth and his vision for reaching the nations. He counts himself as fortunate to have God that provides everything he needs and to have a community that supports him. </p><p><br>When asked about the adjustments that he had to make during his trip to India, Josh shares about a moment when he was wrestling with himself and the guilt that he was feeling for coming from a very well off place, and coming and experiencing a place where poverty and suffering are very real. He found himself taking a step back and asking God to clear his mind and heart. And in that moment, Josh felt God’s presence fill him and he felt God’s heart for the nation of India. His heart was purified and he was overcome with emotion. He was blessed as God has been preparing his heart for the miracles that He was about to do. </p><p><br>Josh believes that missions have changed his life by broadening his perspective. Going on missions has made him realize how similar everybody is and it has also made him appreciate the cultural differences. These differences should complement us instead of dividing us. God did a beautiful thing by creating different countries and different cultures. And we should appreciate those differences instead of trying to get rid of them. </p><p><br> ____________<br><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Melody's Story - Rejoicing Over Generosity
<p>Melody was born in Texas and moved to North Carolina in 1998 when she was four years old. She is a graduate of <a href="https://www.regent.edu">Regent University</a> in Virginia Beach. She worships at <a href="https://gethope.net">Hope Community Church</a> in Raleigh and she works at <a href="https://meadhunt.com">Mead &amp; Hunt Engineering Firm</a> in downtown Raleigh. Melody has been to India multiple times through <a href="https://globalhopeindia.org/go">Global Hope India</a>. She currently lives in Holly Springs, North Carolina. Despite going through some struggles while she was growing up, she enjoyed her childhood and is blessed to have supportive parents who made sure that Melody and her siblings grew up hearing about Jesus. She grew up going to church and knowing that there was a God, but she did not really know Jesus. When she was in high school, she became more confused about what she believed and where she stood with her faith. She started becoming a heavy partier and a people pleaser. <br></p><p>By the end of her high school years, she started realizing that she had an emptiness inside her that needed to be filled. One weekend while she was driving, she heard this song called <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6n-47GYicg">“Forever Rain”</a> on the radio. It's a really simple song about somebody who is running to God's arms and it really resonated with Melody. She started crying out to God for the first time in her life and telling Him, “God, if you're real, whoever you are, please reveal yourself to me. I don't know who you are, but I want to know the real God.” And from there, He started showing up in little ways and although it was not obvious at that time,  Melody could feel a strong pull on her heart to read the Bible. About a year later when she was going through a rough patch, she became desperate and went to the Hope Community Church to find Jesus. During the worship, she started recognizing the melody of “Forever Rain” and it started to overwhelm her. It started to bring back the memory and it was the same song that was playing on the radio when she asked God to reveal Himself to her. She started worshiping, crying out, and from that day on, she has never experienced that kind of depression and thoughts about harming herself. God had rescued Melody that day. <br></p><p>Melody has a friend who went to India and came back with a glow in her eyes. This made her want to go to India to share the gospel and she was presented with the opportunity through Hope Community Church. She shares some fond memories from her trip to India such as doing fun activities with kids from the orphanage and sharing the gospel with a local village. They wanted the gospel to be known through loving them. It was really just looking into their eyes, loving them, giving them resources, their time, and praying for them. Many of them might not even know Jesus but they are going to ask for prayer and this is a wonderful opportunity to be able to speak the light of Christ. She remembers an instance where they went to a well's dedication and saw an elderly lady who was so desperately happy for the clean water that she started bathing in it. It was amazing for Melody to see the rejoicing that goes on over generosity that it just melted her heart. This water project became an incredible witness of Christ in action because it's the Christian Church really lovingly caring and giving the clean water to the village freely and unconditionally. <br></p><p>Melody’s life has been truly changed through missions. She realized that there were things that she has been taking for granted. She believes that God has opened her eyes to see everything that she has and to be grateful for them. The missions also taught her to appreciate another culture for it opens a lot of doors and definitely opens her heart. Spending time with the people in India made her realize that their needs are real and recognizing that made her also understand why it is important for her to act when there is a time of crisis. </p><p>___________</p><p><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Translating Christ's Love Through Missions - Alex’s Story
<p>Alex was born in El Salvador but he is currently in the US studying at Campbell University. He is scheduled to graduate in the spring of 2020 right in the middle of the pandemic. He will be graduating with a double major in Journalism/Digital Media Communication and Christian Studies. He was born in El Salvador and lived there until he was 18 years old. He came to believe in Christ at an early age but he realized that he did not have faith in Him. Alex knew who He was from hearing about Him, but he only started to experience and know Jesus during his first church camp. One night when they were singing worship songs, he remembers standing on a chair and feeling the overwhelming need to get on his knees. When he did, he felt how his heart was completely transformed from the inside out, and his whole being was going through this transformation. </p><p><br>When he was a senior in high school, they had people from the US coming over to El Salvador to do mission work. These were usually some sort of medical mission work where they would have doctors, nurses, and anybody else that would want to participate in those missions. They would go out to El Salvador and they would partner with Alex’s church. Since Alex knew the English language, he was one of those selected to help with the mission trip by serving as a translator. He developed a friendship with one of the doctors who encouraged him to go to the US for his studies. A week after the mission trip ended, Alex received an email from him saying that after he left, he definitely felt from the Lord that he needed to help Alex to come to the US in some form or way. A month after that, Alex got a ticket to come and visit him in the US and they started looking for schools. The doctor helped him get settled and this started his journey of faith in the US. </p><p>Alex talks about his mission trip experience in Mumbai. This was a medical mission trip where he also got to preach and share the gospel of the Lord. Their team went to the red light district as well as the Hope Center. It was his first time to be on the side of the missionaries that were going to a different country. For Alex, it was an incredible experience to feel what it was like to be on the other side of a mission trip. He also talks about language as one of the biggest challenges that he had while in Mumbai. Despite the language barrier, he believes that showing love and good acts of generosity helped establish a connection between them and the people in Mumbai.</p><p><br>Alex shares that missions changed his life by helping him get rid of a lot of pride and ego that he did not know he had. He felt so confident in himself that he was not going to be impressed anymore. So he was already going through some feelings that because he had seen so much in his home country, there was nothing that could surprise him. But through missions, his perspective changed and he was able to see the fullness of God’s character. Through missions, he was able to experience God in different cultures and different countries. </p><p> ___________</p><p><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Ben's Story - Debt and Stewardship
<p>Ben has traveled to India with Global Hope India. He is a graduate of <a href="https://www.ncsu.edu">NC State University</a> and he has a bachelor's in Science and Secondary Mathematics Education. Ben attends the <a href="https://summitchurch.com">Summit Church</a> with pastor JD Greear. He's involved there in the financial coaching ministry as well as their First Impressions. His mom’s philosophy was, “if I force you to do this, it's not going to be authentic and real” and so Ben was never forced to go to church. It was always a choice and Ben’s choice then was to not go to church most of the time. It was not until he was in high school that things started to change for him. He accepted Christ and started going to church on a regular basis. </p><p>Ben has left his teaching job and is a company owner of CMC solutions, a medical supply company. He shares that this turning point felt like the Lord gave him a really hard tug which made him decide to start CMC solutions. He has gone on so many medical mission trips that he really felt the need to provide medical equipment for patients. A percentage of each product sale goes towards supporting an organization. These organizations can then send someone on a mission trip or they provide a product to those who need them. Ben wants his company to be able to give back for what God was so good for. </p><p>He shares how he discovered his financial coach path when he was 26 through his mentor, Blair Graham. Blair showed him how powerful finances were in the Bible and that awoke a discipleship type of heart in him when it came to really trying to lead people. Ben had always loved finances and Blair just really sat down with him and made him digest everything that the Bible had to say about money. What most people don’t realize is that finances, learning to leverage your treasure, your talent, and your time are all intertwined. He then realized how important it was to get that mentality down in people’s hearts. Ben talks about debt and stewardship and how debts can hold people back when they commit before the Lord, in the sense that they will prioritize getting out of debt. He stresses that one can still keep giving and pay off their debts quicker at the same time. It’s a matter of putting God first in everything and giving Him your time. He always tells people that sometimes it looks like God's not showing up and He shows up in a way that you didn't expect or it was a lot later than you thought. It is just one of those things that God is going to show up, but God's not going to show up if you don't put Him first. </p><p>When asked to describe his mission experience in one word, Ben says the word “powerful” comes to mind. He saw so many things that just had to be in God's power. There was no other explanation, but the Lord was there and He's all-powerful. The team saw miracles through the healings that took place in the medical clinics. It was one of those things that he had never seen in his whole life. And when he got home, he was just never the same. Because he felt like his prayer life was so shallow and he has this power inside of him that he could tap into. Ben also offered advice to those who want to go on a mission trip and this was to go outside of their comfort zones. For sometimes, it's not always a verbal calling or a calling from somebody else. It can be completely dark and you won’t know whether you should do it. But you just need to take that step. And then God is going to shine a light on it because He is the light. And He is going to show up. </p><p>___________</p><p><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Savanah's Story - A Breakthrough From Missions
<p><strong>Savanah's Story - A Breakthrough From Missions</strong></p><p><br>Savanah is a barista from Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina.  She went on her first-ever mission trip to India with Global Hope India when she was in high school. And after graduating, Savanah did a gap year experience doing four countries in nine months with the <a href="https://www.worldrace.org">World Race Through Adventures in Missions</a>. Currently, she is a part of the <a href="https://www.verticallife.church">Vertical Life Church</a> in Holly Springs. She is a barista at <a href="https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&amp;rls=en&amp;q=Thanks+A+Latte+Coffee+Shop&amp;ie=UTF-8&amp;oe=UTF-8">Thanks A Latte Coffee Shop</a> in Holly Springs. Savanah dreams of running her own coffee shop one day that will focus on bringing the local community and globe together. She grew up in a Christian home and the challenges she encountered with her family were what pushed Savannah to surrender her life to the Lord. This was right before she decided to go on her first mission trip which ended up being India. </p><p><br>Going to India in 2017 was a big turning point for her faith and her walk with the Lord. She believes that her heart would not have grown so much for missions if she had not gone to India. After leaving India, Savanah knew that she wanted to go back there as well as continue to travel the world. India definitely gave her the perspective of just how much more there was in the world and the needs that there are and just how blessed she was. It opened her eyes and made her realize that her relationship with the Lord was just craving that different perspective. She loved learning about other cultures and knowing that despite the differences and language barriers, we all serve the same God and build relationships from that. </p><p><br>When Savanah was planning on going to college, she came across a race post on social media and felt very clearly that the Lord was telling her to go. So she signed up for the race where she went to four countries in nine months. The four countries she went to were Cambodia, Ethiopia, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. She fondly talks about the great opportunity to spend a lot of time diving into relationships and being intentional with each country's locals. This allowed her to develop a deeper relationship with them to be able to plant those seeds and really share Jesus's love with them and get them to that point of wanting to surrender their life to the Lord. </p><p><br>If she would sum up her mission trip experiences in one word, Savanah says it would be “breakthrough”. Spending time with the Lord while on the mission trip has changed her heart, her priorities, and what matters most to her. The missions enabled her to see how other countries live, how they have almost nothing, yet they have way more joy than a lot of people in the US. She also learned to be more intentional with people since she only had limited time with the kids in India and might not ever see them again, so being intentional with each person that she came in contact with and loving them the way that Jesus would.  Despite the heat and challenging circumstances in India, these would not keep her from going the extra mile and continuing to pour out love and allow the Lord to use her to overflow His love into someone else's life. Savanah believes in taking that back to the US too. Because it's not just the orphans in India that need love. It’s your neighbor or the person you see at the grocery store. It’s everybody. It’s all about taking your eyes off of your own life and looking at the needs of other people. </p><p><br></p><p>___________</p><p><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Katie’s Story - Faithfulness and Relying on God's Power
<p>A few weeks ago, Josh shared his story with us, and in this episode, we talk to his wife, Katie. Katie and Josh are from New Bern, North Carolina. They started dating when they were only 16 years old, and Katie finally convinced Josh into proposing when they were 19 years old. They were engaged, but it took them three years to finally marry when they were 22 years old. They have now been married 12 years and they have three children. A daughter that is eight, a son that is six, and a son that is three years old. Katie has a bachelor's in Exercise Sports Science from <a href="https://www.elon.edu">Elon University</a> and a bachelor's in Nursing from <a href="https://nursing.duke.edu">Duke University Nursing School</a>. Katie is still a registered nurse, even though she is currently a stay at home mom. Katie and Josh are heavily involved in the <a href="https://summitchurch.com">Summit Church</a>, the Apex campus, and she leads a women's Bible study at Summit and also a high school girls' small group. She and Josh are involved in an adult small group and with Global Hope India and <a href="https://www.yourchoicepregnancyclinic.com">Your Choice Pregnancy Center</a> in Raleigh. Katie is also a lead singer in a local band named <a href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/Musician-Band/Secret-Drive-546050768828141/">Secret Drive</a>. </p><p>Katie shared some stories from her mission trips. The first time she went to India was in January 2015. She went with GHI where her husband, Josh, was the lead. It’s a great example that a young newlywed couple with young children at home can actually still go on missions. To date, Katie has been to India twice where she got to lead a team on her second trip. In 2018, she signed up to go on a women's trip to Haiti with the Summit Church. Her most recent trip was to Johannesburg in South Africa where they went to places that tourists would not normally go to. They did street evangelism and did not have a hard time talking to people since most of them knew the English language. They would tell them about Christmas and ask them about their traditions. Then they would go straight to the gospel and tell them that Christmas was actually the celebration of the birth of our savior and that it is for everyone, not just Americans. They would then invite them to Bible studies, which is what the missionaries who live in Johannesburg do. They continue that relationship with them throughout the year, and that turns into a discipleship relationship.</p><p>She talks about some of the challenges that she faced as a result of going to an orphanage of special needs children in India. She found that the most challenging part of the trip was changing her and her team’s mindset. They wanted to make an impact on the lives of the children in a matter of five short days. They realized that they just needed to change their mindset and focus more on loving and impacting. They were moms that ended up really pouring their lives out into other moms and people that were in motherly positions within the ministry. This is a reflection of how even if you plan everything out for a trip,  mid-trip God will do a paradigm shift and say, “you know, you're here for the children, but you're also here for the staff and your greatest impact maybe even left in the staff and then it is going to be left in the children”.</p><p>Katie shares that going on missions have changed her life so much. She has not seen more growth in her walk with Christ than she has when she has been going on mission trips. She has seen this growth through the evidence of how much she now sees her need for a savior, just how good God is and His kindness through everything that she has walked through. Katie talks about how it’s amazing to also see other people grow through going on missions by leaving their comfort zone and putting their faith in God. She also shares about the costs involved in following Christ. There are rewards, but the costs are also just as real. Benefits do outweigh the cost, but that doesn't mean that there wasn't a cost involved. Despite all the costs, it all comes down to the great commission and the urgent need that everyone has to be reconciled to God through his Son, Jesus Christ. </p><p>___________</p><p><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Emily’s Story - Finding Her Calling
<p>Emily is currently a sophomore at <a href="https://www.appstate.edu">Appalachian State University</a> in Boone, North Carolina. She is pursuing a bachelor's degree in Public Health with a minor in Nutrition. She attends <a href="https://hhcboone.org">Harvest House Church</a> in Boone, North Carolina. She is deeply involved in the college ministry there at Harvest House. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Emily has been taking her courses online and she shares that it has been a big transition for her and her teachers. She has been going to church since she was born. But it was in fifth grade when she worked at Hope Community Church when she decided to accept Jesus into her heart. She got baptized when she was in seventh grade and really started to pursue Jesus. But that was more of reading the Bible and she did not really understand what it meant to have a relationship with Jesus. But when she was a sophomore in high school, something just clicked. And she realized that she was missing something in her life and she could not figure out what it was. </p><p>And when Emily heard that there were these mission trips going on in her high school ministry, she immediately knew that she had to go. She knew in her heart that it was the next step. So she told her mom that she was going to India, but ended up going to Haiti that summer. That was the first time that she had been taken out of the distractions of America and was really able to just feel God's peace and presence. And it was the first time that she had ever heard His voice, and it was incredible. In her junior year in high school, she decided to follow her heart and go on a mission trip to India. Emily feels like that trip was the answer to her prayer of trying to figure out who she was. </p><p>She shares how when she was having lunch with Justin, he shared his story of how his mom died of cancer because they did not have enough money to give her the life-saving care that she needed. When Emily heard that story, it was like a flame of ignited in her heart and she finally knew what her calling was. Emily talks about her trip to India and how she helped show the kids from the Orissa orphanage that there is a God there for them and that He loves them and that He can provide for their needs. She shares some highlights of that trip including seeing all the joy on the children’s faces. Although most of them have almost nothing, yet they are so full of joy, so full of excitement. And it felt like nothing could knock them down. She also talks about one of the challenges that she encountered. She talks about the village’s problem with water supply, where they do not have water and indoor plumbing. This really gave Emily a sense of perspective and made her grateful for the things that they have in America. </p><p>Emily shares how missions have changed her life in terms of her prayer life is drastically changed. Many people in India have such a huge faith and trust in God and they're constantly praying about anything and everything in their life. She feels like in America they have lost the power of prayer and just the gift that God has given them to be able to talk to Him through prayer. It is so easy to just put off reading the Bible because of the things that they need to do and blame it on busyness or distractions in this world. But coming back from India and just witnessing their faith in God and their trust in the power of prayer just reminded Emily of the fact that prayer can move mountains.</p><p>___________</p><p><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Hayden's Story - Reward in the Midst of Discomfort
<p>Hayden was born in North Carolina. She is 17 years old, attends <a href="https://www.wcpss.net/greenhopehs">Green Hope High School</a> where she is a junior, and she worships at <a href="https://gethope.net">Hope Community Church</a>. Hayden also loves horror movies. She was on staff at <a href="http://www.caryncgymnastics.com">Cary School of Gymnastics</a> where she worked once a week. Working there was probably her favorite thing in the world because she got to hang out with kids and she loves kids. Hayden also has two brothers with whom she loves to play sports with. </p><p>In this episode, Hayden shares some memorable stories of her experience during her first mission trip to India. She remembers their group’s air conditioning and power challenges at their hotel. She also talks about the other members of the team who made the trip very enjoyable and memorable for her. Hayden discusses the time zone change which was the biggest adjustment that she had to make while on the trip. </p><p>Hayden also talks about how the missions made her feel full. Her favorite part of all was doing the songs and the dances for the kids. They looked so happy the whole time and they were getting the words and jumping up and down dancing. Just seeing how happy their team could make the kids just made Hayden very happy. Before going on missions, she was already grateful for what she had. But she realized now, that she was not feeling blessed and was not as grateful as she should have been. After going on the mission trip, she realized that there are so many things that she took for granted. And sometimes true joy doesn't come from the things you have, but it comes from God and the people around you.  </p><p>Seeing the people in India not only changed her heart, but it also changed her mindset and made her closer to God. Because it made her want to appreciate the things that she had more. And she felt almost guilty for having the things that she had. For when she saw the people that didn't have the things that she had, it just made her try to be more grateful. When asked to explain her mission trip in one word, Hayden says “rewarding”. As it was an experience that not a lot of people get to have, it really gave her a different feeling and it was very beneficial to her as a person. </p><p><br></p><p>___________</p><p><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Jayden’s Story: Joyful Through Jesus
<p>Jayden is the only American to ever be baptized in India on any Global Hope India’s teams. She is still in high school at <a href="https://www.wcpss.net/greenhopehs">Green Hope High School</a> and she is not yet married. She attends <a href="https://gethope.net">Hope Community Church</a> with Pastor Mike Lee. Jayden may not like to brush her hair, but she loves to hike. Prior to the Covid19 pandemic, she had a part-time job where she worked as a babysitter after school. </p><p>In her podcast interview, Jayden talks about her first trip to India where she went to one city a week for three weeks: Hyderabad, Chennai, and Mumbai. She remembers the welcoming atmosphere in Hyderabad where she got to spend time with kids. She shares her experience in Chennai where they got to minister to adults which were definitely a different experience. She fondly talks about the kids in Mumbai who made a huge impact on her. She sees this as a divine appointment of the almighty God for she just found herself to be in the right place at the right time. </p><p>Jayden also talks about how missions have changed her life. Before going on missions she was not necessarily open, did not necessarily encourage people with their relationship with Jesus, and she was not the type of person that people would come to ask for guidance. But after the missions, she found herself being that person for a few people who have come to her and asked for her guidance on a way to have a relationship with God. Aside from this, she has also started treating people differently because she has seen the way the kids in India treated her. She realized that it was a privilege for her to be able to go there and for her to be able to experience the missions. </p><p>She shares how the mission trip experience has changed her everyday life. Jayden says that she now has a sense of gratitude for what God has given her. She finds that it has increased exponentially since she has been to India. When asked why she decided to get baptized while in India, Jayden explains that one of the most uncomfortable things she experienced was ministering to people even when she was unable to fully understand God's power. She did not feel that it was right for her to be administering to them. And for her to be preaching the gospel, which she believed, but having not accepted that yet, it did not feel right to her. So she decided to be baptized right there in India, and this baptism is just the beginning of her joyful journey with Christ. </p><p><br>___________</p><p><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Emma’s Story- God’s Gift of Fulfillment
<p>Emma is a senior at <a href="https://www.wcpss.net/greenhopehs">Green Hope High School </a>in Cary, North Carolina. She has already been to India two times with Global Hope India. She is involved in student ministries at <a href="https://www.gethope.net">Hope Community Church</a>. Emma has already done more for the Lord than most people do in their whole life. She leads to small groups of middle school girls and has reached over a hundred students from her school. She helps them grow their understanding of God and scriptures. Emma was a missionary of the gospel long before she set her feet on the soil of India. She talks about how God has used that to be transformational for her. </p><p><br>Emma’s first trip to India was in the summer of 2018 where she went to Hyderabad, India, and stayed there for nine days along with other high schoolers. It was a great way for her to be introduced to missions and for her to really see how God could work in her life. She shares some of the biggest adjustments that she had to make while on mission trips. As a “go with the flow” person, she did not have a hard time adjusting to the culture but what she found most challenging was being away from her family. She has a strong relationship with her family and she was able to cope by talking to them every night.</p><p><br></p><p>She shares how she thinks God has definitely used missions to grow her faith into what it is now because she has grown up in a church her whole life. She was practically born there, and was in the nursery and then in elementary school ministry, all the way through high school ministry. And she feels that she never truly had a strong relationship with God until she participated in the mission trips and she was just able to see God's raw love on the mission field. Emma also believes that missions helped grow her faith by showing her that the purpose of being a follower of God is not to just be able to pray and to receive from God. Her purpose was to fulfill the Great Commission. </p><p><br>When asked to describe her mission trip experience in one word, Emma says, “fulfilling”. She says that when she was in India, she had the feeling of being filled with everything she needed through God in order to live a bountiful life and she wanted to show others that as well. Being stripped of all the comforts and security of homemade her realize that she was already fulfilled through Christ. Missions have changed her everyday life by making her more appreciative of everything she has. She has seen how people in India are able to live so happily and freely without all the unnecessary things. Missions have sparked in her heart a freeness of being able to not judge people and just love them for who they are.</p><p><br></p><p>____________</p><p><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Josh’s Story - A Life of Purpose
<p>Josh is the current President of the Board of Directors of Global Hope India. He and his wife, Katie, have been married for 12 years. They have three children and they currently live in Apex, North Carolina. Josh holds a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering from <a href="https://www.ncsu.edu">North Carolina State University</a>. He is employed at Tethis as an Engineering and Capital Projects Manager. Josh and Katie attend <a href="https://summitchurch.com">Summit Church</a> with <a href="https://jdgreear.com">Pastor J.D. Greear</a>. Josh is involved there on the prayer team, first Impressions, and he is a small group leader.</p><p><br></p><p>Josh talks about how he was baptized when he was seven or eight years old. He says he was lucky to have been born into a family that loves the Lord. His father led him to faith and he remembers being able to walk through it. He sees this as the beginning of a long process of sanctification. He feels like he’s not any further along than when he was eight. But he knows that's not true because he has markers in his life that he can look back to where God has awakened him to new truths about who He is, about the personal work of Jesus Christ, about the totality of His rule and reign in the world and in Josh’s life: specifically in what submission to that looks like.</p><p>These spiritual markers were evident in Josh’s life through the Global Hope India missions that he got involved in. His first international trip was in Indonesia where he went with his wife, Katie, eight years ago. That trip was awakening and very solidifying for Josh and Katie because this is where they understood that Indonesia was not where God was calling them to go right in the end. But instead, He was calling them to a heart and a passion for mobilization and to see people engage with the global church. They see this as a need since  God is the God of the nations and not just the God of the US. Around that same year, they partnered with Global Hope India and went on their first mission trip to India where they took a team of engineers, teachers, and nurses, with them. </p><p>Josh shares how missions have changed his life by giving him purpose. That trip really helped form and show Josh the value of a diverse group of people going to India. They're seeing their hearts transform and their eyes opened to the fact that the world is bigger than where they live. That the people in India, in Asia, need Jesus just like they need Jesus, and they struggle with the same problems that they do with family dysfunction, poverty, fear about job loss, or difficulty in relationships. The part that he loved about God and the thing that really set him off was seeing those people's hearts transformed coming back to the States, even if they don't go back overseas again, they're coming back transformed and ready to see God move and they're expecting God to move and they're believing God for big things.</p><p><br></p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Matthew’s Story - From Running to Submitting
<p>Matthew is from Porterville, New York which is a small town in western New York, just south of Buffalo. He attended <a href="https://www.alfredstate.edu">Alfred State College</a> and works at <a href="https://www.greatlakescheese.com">Great Lakes Cheese</a> as an Engineering technician where he integrates robotics into the manufacturing equipment. Although he did not have a church family, his faith started with reading the Bible and finding comfort in it. He found that as he read on and on, he began praying and his life just started to change. His biggest prayer when he started praying was for him to have a wife and a family. He felt that God answered that he was not ready to become a spiritual leader of a family, so he dove into Jesus instead and focused on nurturing his faith. But a couple of years later, he met his wife Natalie. It was like God said, “seek me first, Matthew, and then all these other things will be added”. And he fulfilled that promise and all these other things were added.</p><p><br></p><p>It was Natalie’s stepfather who convinced Matthew to go to India on his first mission trip. Matthew saw this as God’s step of obedience for him to go so he went to India, two months after they got married. Upon arriving in India, he felt a sense of purpose. He felt like God was telling him, “This is where you shed all the fear of trying new things, all the fear of the giants and the obstacles in front of you, and you focus on me.” He remembered thinking that he did not even know why he was there but there was nowhere else he’d rather be. It was as if all of a sudden the light bulb began to go off as to God's sovereignty. And he said, here's your purpose.</p><p><br></p><p>After going on his mission trip to India, he had the urge to tell everyone about ministries overseas and about the struggles overseas. And he wanted everyone to hear that it's a love like fire. While fire needs oxygen, ignition source and fuel to spread, God is all of that and the people are the fuel. This was what pushed him to put up a website called lovelikefireindia.com as a means to get out to the world what God has done and what God is doing. For Matthew, this was God’s idea and ministry. </p><p><br></p><p>Matthew also shared the story of how he inherited an orphanage in India. One of the things that became crucial for him was to ensure that all 20 children in that orphanage were given beds to sleep on. He felt like this was an act of obedience and he was going to reach out. Through faith and God’s sovereignty, they were able to raise funds and achieve this goal. Matthew shares how God has shown him this as his purpose. Just like in <a href="https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genesis+12%3A2&amp;version=NIV">Genesis 12:2</a>, “Where God speaks to Abraham and he says, I will bless you and I will make you a blessing”, Matthew has been blessed and has also become a blessing to others. </p><p><br>____________</p><p><strong><br>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Justin’s Story - Prayer and Miracles
<p>Justin was born in Manipur and grew up in Northeast India. When he was just four years old, his dad passed away and his mother had no choice but to move him and his siblings to a rural area. Without any stable source of income, his mother was able to raise and send Justin and his 4 siblings to school. His mother was able to fulfill their needs through prayer and just keeping almighty God on the throne of being the provider for their family. </p><p><br></p><p>He talks about his spiritual development and how he came to faith in Christ and was baptized. He was invited by a classmate to become an usher for the <a href="https://www.upci.org">UPC church</a>. It was a big church and he had to help with decorating and cleaning the church. He shares that although the work was tiring, he felt full of joy and happiness while working in the church. In 2014, Justin’s mother passed away due to breast cancer. This was a dark period for Justin because he had prayed to the same God that his mom had prayed to his whole life and he saw miracles growing up. But this time he did not get a miracle. </p><p><br></p><p>In January 2015, Justin was introduced to Kevin. He became the International Travel Manager of Global Hope India and this paved the way for his renewed faith in Christ. As a support person for GHI, he shared the mission trip alongside the team of Americans that have come over from the US. Their team went on this mission wanting to make an impact for God. And yet it was Justin who was impacted because, in one of the darkest hours of his life, God sent a refreshing blow of grace, beauty, love, and compassion through an American team and the leper colony in India. </p><p><br></p><p>If Justin had to sum up how God has used missions to change his life, that word would be “prayer”. Prayer is not just for the answers that we're going to see before we pass, but we are praying to a God that is eternal, the Alpha and the Omega. And if we do go to heaven before the earth is over, we need to be praying for eternity. Because what matters is the work of God. It's not what we can do. God is so good and he allows us to do a lot of great things in spite of our sin and our mistakes. He is always faithful.  </p><p><br></p><p>____________</p><p><br></p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Pastor Jay - God’s Exponential Impact
<p>Pastor Jay is the middle school pastor at <a href="http://gethope.net/">Hope Community Church</a> in Raleigh, North Carolina. He is a part of their central services team, which leads the middle school staff for all of Hope's campuses. Jay was involved in one of the first mission teams sent to India through Global Hope India. He is also a <a href="http://goarmy.com/">US Army</a> war veteran and Jay talked about how being in a war zone led to him carrying a weight of emotional tension. A friend of his invited him to come to North Carolina so he can restart his life. And that move was a pivotal moment for him. </p><p>Pastor Jay talked about how his personal experiences have made him realize that God is a father to the fatherless. And how he continues to do this with the orphanages in India and even to people with leprosy who have been cast outside of their communities. He remembered how one trip became a catalyst to pave a way for the church to grow in that colony and for God to bless them immensely. He also shared a story on how helping a woman by pouring oil on her open wound allowed him to see her faithfulness. And how God used that moment to teach Pastor Jay about faithfulness. </p><p>He also shared how he answered God's call for full-time ministry. He saw how multiple lives were radically changed as a result of that trip and it set a foundation for him to go full time with Global Hope India. Pastor Jay talked about how missions have taught him about hospitality and to just love your neighbor and your brother and their members. He knew without a doubt that God was calling him to full-time vocational ministry and when paired with those instances of faithfulness that he experienced in India, he believed that if you know what God's called you to, then your response is either faithfulness and obedience or it's disobedience. </p><p><br></p><p>Pastor Jay shares how missions have changed his life in terms of seeing that what God does is exponential. He saw this in the influence that God had in the different individuals that he interacted with and on the improvement of the children’s way of living in the orphanage. His vocation as a student pastor along with his experiences when he went on mission trips to India has allowed him to stay faithful. </p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Pauline’s Story - We Cannot Outgive God
<p>Pauline is retired from medical practice and also medical equipment support. She lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, and attends <a href="https://summitchurch.com">The Summit Church</a> with pastor <a href="https://jdgreear.com">J.D. Greear</a>. She has been on two mission trips with Global Hope India. She grew up in a Christian family and didn't really have her own faith until some years later. She believes that Jesus is the reason that she can move, breathe, and have life. The sacrifice that Jesus has made and the grace that has been poured on her has made her want to reach out and give that to others as well. </p><p>She saw missions as an opportunity to use her skills as a nurse. It was an avenue that she saw where she could tangibly give back and become involved in people's lives. She saw that as a gift from God and it seemed like a glaring opportunity to just say yes. Pauline talked about her experience the first time she went on a mission trip to India. She remembered feeling very overwhelmed when God was calling her to focus on India. She saw so much need, so much opportunity, and they can only do so much. But God was very good and showed them that experience as a catalyst for life change and transformation. </p><p>Pauline shared her favorite story from a mission trip where they established a connection with the families that came to the orphanage. This relationship led to the families accepting Christ and being baptized. Aside from helping people with their illness, it was the long-term impact they had in these families' lives that resonated with her most. This is a reflection of how one plants seeds and harvests seeds for the gospel. </p><p><br></p><p>One of the takeaways that she had from a mission trip was the power of prayer. Pauline shared why she is now a prayer warrior for missions. For she has seen how giving some pills and other medications can help with physical healing, but there is still that greater need for more than just physical healing. And this only comes about when they realize their need for Christ, and that can only be exposed through prayer. The reason that we're so passionate about prayer, the reason that they lay hands on everyone and pray with them before the clinic is because salvation belongs to the Lord.</p><p><br></p><p>Pauline talked about how working with Global Hope India has made her realize that she cannot outgive God. She continues to be amazed at what God can do with what little she gives. There is nothing that returns void when the gospel is involved. She hopes that when she gets to heaven, she can look around and see that people that are there as a result of some of the work that she has done or enabled. And she is just grateful that God has put her in this place and in this season.</p><p><br></p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Pricilla’s Story - From Tragedy to Triumph
<p>Pricilla works as an Emergency Room nurse at the University Medical Center of El Paso’s Level 1 Trauma Center. She grew up in Sacramento, California and has very strong ties to her Mexican heritage. She is a solo traveler, an adventurer, and an adrenaline junkie, and she loves the Dallas Cowboys. As a child, she remembered not knowing God at all and not having any kind of relationship with Him. She went through tumultuous and traumatizing experiences not just as a child but as an adult as well. </p><p>She was recently exposed to extreme hatred when the El Paso mass shooting occurred on August 3rd 2019, where a gunman shot and killed 22 people and injured 24 others at a Walmart store in El Paso. Pricilla talked about how her church’s pastor, Pastor Terry Gray of the Cavalry Chapel Sun City, went to the ER and prayed for the victims. That was God’s way of shining His light on a dark day in El Paso. That experience made her realize that God was the alpha and the omega. Everything was in God’s hands and He was always watching over His children. </p><p>Pricilla remembered how God was really calling her to become a nurse. She talked about a vision that she had while she was in her car and she suddenly saw herself being surrounded by many children. She then promised God that she gets accepted and finish her nursing program, she will go on medical missions. She firmly believed that if He puts something in your heart so strong, you can run away from it or you can run towards it with all of your heart. And when you trust God, you can really do anything. </p><p>Going on missions with Global Hope India gave Pricilla the sense of that vision being fulfilled. She saw children in need of a safe place and hope, and it was an honor to pray with them. She also interacted with women from red-light districts and prayed with them. She firmly believes that when God plants things in your life, He gives you a sense of direction. You can open doors for others to make them see what they would not have seen if you did not go on missions. Missions change your future. Trees are sprouting and it’s like a little garden is growing in her heart. And she can’t wait to see what grows because all these different seeds are planted by the different things that she has seen in the missions. </p><p><strong>Meet Pricilla: </strong>She lives in El Paso, TX. She is an ER Nurse and was there in El Paso On August 3, 2019 when mass shooting occurred at a Walmart store in El Paso. A gunman shot and killed 22 people and injured 24 others. The FBI determined the shooting to be an act of domestic terrorism and hate crime. A few month’s later Pricilla is on a mission trip with Global Hope India. She has Mexican heritage. She was born in California. She is a nurse at University Medical Center of El Paso - a level 1 trauma center. As a follower of Christ she worships at Calvary Chapel in Sun City.

Friends from Manipur - Answering God’s Global Call
<p>I am so excited for today’s episode. Before we welcome today’s guests to the show, let me share some additional context why I was incredibly honored when they agreed to be on the show. That’s right we aren’t going to have 1 guest or 2 or 3. Today we are welcoming 7 guests to today’s show!</p><p>As you know, the question, “will you go with me to India” has always been foundational for Global Hope India. We believe GOING is one of the most radical steps of obedience we will ever take to the great commission. The call to go is not an American calling but is global. Every healthy New Testament Church is faithfully sending out people to advance the gospel. This is true for The Church in India too! Over the last 10 years we’ve seen God transform thousands of Americans AND Indian Nationals through missions. </p><p>In this episode, we hear from seven (7) Indian nationals from Northeast India who recently joined one of Global Hope India’s teams from America on a short-term mission to Mumbai, India. These Americans and Indian nationals formed one (1) team to serve the church in Mumbai. This further stresses the point that the call to go is a global calling and not just an American calling.</p><p>We first talked to Abi, Apem, Apom, Iyam, Nao, and Rinthar who were in charge of various medical tasks such as temperature and blood pressure checks, pharmacy management, and eyeglasses consultation. They shared their individual stories on what they loved most about the trip and how even a short-term mission had transformed their lives. Our friends from Manipur had a wonderful time playing with the children and teaching them action songs. But what resonated most to everyone was the eye-opening encounter they had with the women from the red light district and their children. They talked about how when mothers from the area were asked how the team could pray for them, they answered: “Please pray for my children”. To pray for God to spring into action, rescue the children, and take them away from that environment. </p><p>We then talked to Justin from Global Hope India, whose leadership made the mission trip a success. He shared the importance of having Global Hope India partners who provide scholarships for Indian nationals and how this selfless act provides the youth with a great opportunity to serve the people of India. Justin talked about how God continues to use missions to change his life. He believed that God has plans for everyone and everything. He had seen how powerful prayers are and how God works when we pray.  </p><p>We closed the episode with a prayer for the women of the red light district and their children. We prayed for God to reveal Himself to those women and that area. We thanked God for the team from the US and the team from Mumbai that came together to provide the Gospel in action to all the people that they have been able to share and demonstrate the love of God with. We prayed for God to continue to provide a way for Americans, foreigners, and Indian nationals to come together in missions for the sake of the Gospel. </p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Andrew’s Story - Taking a Leap of Faith
<p>Andrew Jarman grew up in a small rural town in eastern North Carolina. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Engineering. He currently works in North Carolina’s Department of Environmental Quality where he regulates drinking water systems in the state and helps make sure that the water quality being sold to people falls in the federal and state requirements. As a child, his parents regularly took him to a small Baptist church where he got used to hearing about God and Jesus Christ. It was not until he was 9 years old that he got a better understanding of his faith and understood God’s message for the first time. This happened while he was at church listening to the pastor say, “no one’s good, no one can approach God, no one’s perfect”. He realized that he had to be honest with himself that he had fallen short. But it is Jesus who made the way for us. He is the way and we can’t be good enough to get into Heaven. And Jesus is the only way. This was how he came to know Christ at a young age. </p><p>Andrew admitted that he had a lot of growing to do with his relationship with God. And being on mission trips to India was a big part of that. He was a believer but there were things that he did not have control over. God opened Andrew’s eyes during his 4 years in college. He had career and relationship plans and had his whole life planned out. But he did not realize that God had plans for him too which were far better than Andrew’s plans. His first mission trip to India was his first trip out of the country.  He knew about India and its culture but never really thought about taking a trip there. When he was asked by his friend, Paul, if he would be willing to go to India, he felt God saying “yes”. He felt like that opportunity was one of God’s plans for him. So he just said yes and it was the scariest “yes” that he had ever given. It was a big leap of faith. </p><p>That first mission trip stuck with him and as soon as he left India he knew that he was going back. God got bigger and the urgency to go just increased. His call got clearer. The Holy Spirit prompted him with an urgency to return. And he went on to go on more trips where he also acted as a trip leader and saw God in the call to invite others to join. Being on missions gave Andrew a great opportunity to pray with people and share his testimony. He saw that God can use him just because he can give his heart and just go love the people in India with the heart that God has given him to love them with. </p><p>Andrew talked about how when he was in India, he came to realize the value of the ministry of encouragement. Of just holding another brother’s or sister’s hand in faith and praying for strength over them. That they will be bold and their needs will be met. God is great and can meet every need. So the call then is just to pray. If you can’t meet it yourself, you can lean on the Holy Spirit to meet any need. This is one of the ways where he sees that God is always working to save his people in India through His church. </p><p>The missions have changed not just Andrew and the people he had taken to India, but the people in India as well. God had called him to go and take a step of faith; to trust Him to provide what he promises. With the missions, he saw how God provided even more than he asked or imagined. As a result, God’s faithfulness has increased Andrew’s faith. If he hears the call from God to do it, he can trust Him to provide.</p><p><strong>Meet Andrew!</strong> He lives in Raleigh, NC. He is originally from Snow Hill, NC. Andrew was a saxophone player in the <a href="https://music.arts.ncsu.edu/tag/marching-band/">Marching Band at NCSU</a>. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering from North Carolina State University (Go Pack!) in Raleigh, NC. He works for the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (NC DEQ). He is an Engineer III who leads their Capacity Development Program. Generally what this means is that he help regulate all the public drinking water systems in NC, ensuring it is safe for people to use and consume. Andrew has attended <a href="https://summitchurch.com/">The Summit Church</a> for 11 years, currently at the Apex Campus. He is a small group leader and serves in the kids ministry where he gets to share about Jesus with preschoolers on Sundays. He has been to India four times, but has never been to New York City, Chicago, or Los Angeles. Andrew has ran a mile in under 6 minutes!

Jim and Mary’s Story - Going Where God Leads You
<p>Jim and Mary have been married for 52 years. Jim is a retired meat manager from Winn-Dixie, while Mary is a retired teacher from Rutherfordton Elementary school. Jim is now a beekeeper and a great gardener, and Mary is an excellent cook. They may debate that they have slowed down a little bit. But I’ve got videos showing Mary dancing through the village with little children in India.</p><p>They have been to India several times where they did evangelistic services and worked with children in orphanages. Every trip has been life-changing for Jim and Mary. One challenge they experienced was the language barrier. How can they talk to them when they can’t speak their language? Mary realized that the problem was she was trying to do everything herself. And she realized that she just needed God to tell her what to do and to show her what to do. And He did. And as she did these things, she started to feel at peace. She felt that God was there by her side giving her the words to say. </p><p>On one of their trips, they went to a red light district which was an eye-opening experience for them. It showed them what God expects from us. He says to go to the end of the world and preach the gospel, and that’s exactly what they did. They saw so much need there, and so much to be done but so little time to do them. Jim was in one of the banquets one night where Saji John got up and said, “God knows every name of every person in India. Very few of those people in India know Jesus.” And that stuck with Jim because it was so true. </p><p>Whenever Jim and Mary worked with the children in orphanages, they saw the love between them and the children, and even the adults and girls. They believe that what the children and adults need is another body and not just money. They need another body there to show them that you care about them and to let them know that God cares about them. That way, you’re making a connection with them. </p><p>When asked about what they can say to our brothers and sisters around the world on how God can use missions to change their lives, Jim advised them to talk to God and to let God control them. If He’s leading them to go, don’t put it off and just go. For those that want to go but can’t go, they can pray. And they can help other people to go through Global Hope India. Mary also said that a mission trip is one of the greatest opportunities that they will have in their lifetime. Pray to God, and if it’s not meant for them to go, they can pray and they can give. But if there’s any way for them to go on a mission trip to India, she knows that they will be blessed. </p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Lyn’s Story - Living Sent with Urgency
<p>Lyn is a recently retired career advisor from Fayetteville Tech Community College and an ordained chaplain. She has 3 adult children and 2 grandchildren and is a die-hard Atlanta Falcons fan. She is currently a mission director of Cliffdale Christian Center in Fayetteville NC with a bachelor’s degree in Social Work from South Carolina University and a master’s degree in Adult Education from George Mason. Lyn is a die hard Atlanta Falcons fan!</p><p>For many years now, Lyn has been going on mission trips around the world, from the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Ghana, and India. India holds a special place in her heart as this country managed to tug on her heartstrings and she has met so many amazing people there.</p><p>Her last trip was a 10-day trip where she got to work with young girls on campus. Four of her team members were even members of her church. She advocates, “Everyone can’t go but everyone can pray, some people can send and there are some people that can’t go”, and she advocates this to her church as well as emulate it in real life.</p><p>She also believes that one person can really change the world. When God puts you in a certain place, you have the ability to change that place and the people in it. This change is what will change the world. It might not be noticeable, not many people may know about it but God knows, the people whose lives have been influenced and changed would know. God is awesome as He guides us to places where we can use our skills and experience to help the people around us, just like how Lyn was able to use her skills and experience as an educator to help the people prepare for interviews and such during her mission.</p><p>Lyn believes that missions is her true calling and she loves it. She is even already starting to prepare for her 2020 trip. She believes that mission trips are great and designed to give a taste of what it would be like so people would know if it is their calling. That is why she wants to do more of it. Because to be really connected to the people and to be able to do the best we can, Lyn believes that staying longer is necessary as that would help become part of both the community and the culture.  </p><p>Lyn’s story shows us how missions is everyone’s duty. We are all here to teach about God and guide our fellow brothers and sisters to God’s love. All of us have the heart of a servant just like Jesus Christ. We must not be disheartened if our efforts do not bear fruit immediately. What is important is that we have sown the seeds that will later bear fruit for God to pick.</p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Rose's Story - Overcoming Spiritual Warfare
<p>Rose is a freshman at the Liberty University in Lynchburg Virginia where she is pursuing a bachelor's degree in Zoology and Wildlife Biology with a focus on Marine Biology. She loves to scuba dive and go on mission trips and wants to be known as a woman who stands strong in every trial and tribulation.</p><p><br></p><p>Her most recent mission trip to Hyderabad in India taught her the true meaning and importance of Faith. This past trip had her going through a difficulty in accepting that she is a child of God. Rose has struggled with anxiety her whole life and it has been a problem that she tends to turn away from the Lord. Instead of reaching out to the Lord first, she used to reach out to her own ways of coping with trials and that was to hurt herself. </p><p><br></p><p>There was a point in her trip when she believed that she was not good enough and did not know why God had led her there. One night the devil was whispering in her ear telling her that she was not good enough. It was not until her team came and found her that she realized that what was happening was actually spiritual warfare. Her team members became her life support. The Holy Spirit flowed through them and into Rose, and that night she learned that she does not need to hurt herself anymore. Because she has Jesus Christ in her life and she has faith that He can protect her from the lies that the devil had been whispering in her ears. </p><p><br></p><p>With this breakthrough came the realization that it’s not just other people’s lives that are changed when going on a mission. Her own life has also been changed and some things have been revealed to her. These are things about herself and how God’s raw love can radically change your love for yourself and other people. </p><p><br></p><p>Rose’s story helps us understand how one’s life can change on an international mission trip and how our faith in Jesus Christ can become the ultimate weapon for overcoming spiritual warfare. </p><p><br></p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Jenn - We're all Called to be Missionaries
<p>Jenn and her husband Kyle committed to go on a mission trip and shortly after, Kyle found himself unemployed. Instead of abandoning the trip they pressed in and found community with their team, and the generosity of others as they raised funds.</p><p>"When we were living in Colorado, one of our pastors, he gave a sermon about human trafficking, and one of the things that really struck me was when one of the girls was finally rescued. She said, if your God is so great, then why did it take so long?" - Jenn</p><p>It was that quote that caused her to think about what her personally calling to missions looked like. Through a series of events, she felt called to go to India, and through her "yes" a team of six people and four others from her church joined her and Kyle on the trip. </p><p>"We all go on missions hoping that we can have an impact that people that we will serve will be changed in some way. That they'll know that they're loved. They'll know that they have a friend. They'll know that they're not alone. But that we also realize along the way that God is loving us. He's caring for us. There are things within us that he wants to change." - Kevin</p><p>Jenn has visited India before and backpacked through the Himilayas. She was immersed in the mountains but not in the culture. She knew if she ever had the opportunity to go back she would like to spend time with the people of India. Although she never felt like God was calling her to be a "missionary" she realized after the trip that she was in fact, a missionary and considered what that meant for their family. They prayed about it and asked for God to put an opportunity before them. </p><p>When the moved to Utah, for Kyle's new position, they didn't know that they were moving into a mission field, with only about 1% of people in their area being Christian.</p><p>Jenn's story helps us understand that although we all may not move to a foreign country we all are called to be missionaries. God has provided each of us with a calling and is waiting for our "yes."</p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Daniel from Guatemala to India
<p>Daniel shares his story of moving to the US at 16 from Guatemala with his family. After a short while in LA they moved to Raleigh and Daniel found a church where he got connected. It took a couple of years for him to learn the language and even longer to gain citizenship, but in that time he had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to India.</p><p>After seeing the way that a mission trip changed his brother he knew he wanted to go. Although he didn't know much about India or what to expect, when they landed he discovered it was an orphanage and he loves kids! </p><p>There are many orphans who call India home. There are 43 million orphans on planet earth and 26 million of those are in India. So you really can't be an expression of the gospel. Of the church of Jesus Christ in India, not be touching the lives of orphans. </p><p>Daniel's trip was with one of Global Hope's partners in the state of Orissa.</p><p>Sharing his experience of his first trip, Daniel talks about some cultural misunderstandings of India in Guatemala and what he learned about making assumptions about people based on their ethnicity. He felt his first trip was challenging. On his second trip, he came to understand how much he loved the people of India and how much they loved him.</p><p>Daniel says that missions has changed his day to life, in that, it opened his eyes to what we have around us. He hadn't noticed the large Indian population in his community before going on the trip. God has allowed him to serve away from home but at home as well. </p><p>Also mentioned in this episode:</p><ul><li><a href="https://globalhopeindia.org/podcast/im-seeing-red-cars-everywhere/">The Red Car episode of the Living the Dream Podcast</a></li></ul><p><br>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Be a Part of His story in Order to Make History - Jennifer's Story
<p>Jennifer, who was born and raised in the Dominican Republic, moved to the US at age 10 and felt a calling to go to India years later while at University. When she got to go on her first trip to India she felt loved by the people there and decided that she was going to be a non-resident missionary and has returned two other times since. </p><p>She shares the importance of just saying "yes" when called. You can waste a lot of time wondering why, what's the point, how will you pay, etc. </p><p>It's very natural for people to go on a short-term mission trip to serve the people of the country they but it's not uncommon for trip participants to grow in their personal relationship with Jesus.</p><p>Looking back on her mission experience she feels every trip has been different and shaped her into the person she is today.</p><p>Jennifer shares about her teenage years. She wanted to be popular out of selfish ambition and was willing to do anything wrong to get people's attention. Even in big crowds, she felt lonely and thought what's the point? It wasn't until high school where her brother accepted Jesus and invited her to YoungLife and she felt like the leaders were authentic and genuinely interested in her. It was at a camp she heard the Gospel and she realized her life had a purpose and was not meaningless. The speaker said "If you want to be a part of history you have to be a part of His Story." and she accepted Jesus and began her journey.</p><p>Kevin shares a devotional from the mission field on boldness. What does it take to distract you from the mission? If you want to be bold you need to eliminate distraction. </p><p>"The mission never ends. The trip might be over, but the mission never ends." - Kevin</p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

From Selfish Ambition to Holy Ambition - Hunter's Story
<p>Hunter shares that his motives for missions work were initially for a "millennial-experience that would look good on Instagram," after his trips he experienced a life-changing encounter and now he understands his role in God's plan is more than just travel, but it's his life.</p><p>Hunter shared that although he is not on the mission field right now he understands that his current mission field is in Raleigh, NC. He shared a quote he heard from some missionaries at a conference: "God worked on them for nine years before they did any serious ministry abroad." and he believes that where God has him right now.</p><p>We discussed some of the differences between US culture and Christianity and what many countries, like India, have to deal with. They may risk losing family, friends, and more by publically following Christ. </p><p>Hunter shares a story of being invited to have tea with a family while on the mission field in India. Upon arriving to meet with the man, he was not there. He was invited in and set down with their daughter. It didn't take him long to find out that he was not there just for tea. They were trying to arrange him with their daughter! </p><p>Kevin shares a devotional about understanding the call. He remembers a poster from his youth that said "God's plan, my call." Kevin unpacks how to hear and understand God's voice when it comes to your calling. Jesus said follow me, not follow my plan. It's about a person. We are Christ-followers. Remember that you have been called.</p><p>Hunter described the awe he felt seeing healings as a result of prayer while on a short-term mission trip to India. He shared his experience of seeing a blind eye healed and a person with scoliosis who saw their spine actually straighten up and instantly see a correction of one leg being shorter than the other instantly healed as a result of prayer.</p><p>One of the main ways that Hunter believes his life is forever changed because of missions is his quiet time spent with God is now not an academic exercise but a desire to know God and how to apply his Word to his life. </p><p>Hunter prays for young people who are just identifying a call to missions in their hearts. They may be six months or six years from going on a mission trip, but Hunter prays that they would understand their identity in Christ. </p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Prayer is No Small Thing - Lisa's Story
<p>Lisa describes how an internship at her Church's missions department set her life on a new course. She found herself doing ministry in Nepal where Christianity is illegal. She likes to say that she didn't know what darkness was until that trip.</p><p>Now as a staff member at Global Hope India she has the experience of working with their donations and marketing as a missionary. She shares her story of her calling into missions work through an internship in high school. Her experience raising funds to go on trips and how she experienced God's provision.</p><p>Many people are intimidated to go on a mission trip because they fear they don't know enough or cannot present an "altar call". Kevin and Lisa talk about what it's really like on a Global Hope India mission trip and the focus they put on "creative entry." On the trip Lisa went on, they were using the entry point of teaching English as a second language to build relationships with the students and doing a nightly worship service with a simple time of prayer and how God used that to change the lives of many India students.</p><p>"99.9% of the people walking on planet earth today are not waking up this morning with what must I do to be saved?<br>But they do feel lonely and they do have a boatload of needs. And if we can just show them how much we genuinely care... One of our examples is our clean water projects. I love our clean water projects because you do not have to prove anything. Zero. And you get water. You can be Hindu and you get water, Muslim and you get water, Jesus follower and you get water.  It is an opportunity for the body of Christ to be beautiful in the community, to be resourceful in the community, to be caring in the community and to build relationships of trust whereby people are then attracted to the Jesus that has changed our lives. " - Kevin</p><p>Lisa shared that one of her greatest fears is public speaking and the idea of a trip where she has to preach or stand in front of people with a microphone and present the gospel would not be in her gift set, but despite what the stereotype of missions work has been that has not been her experience.</p><p>Kevin shared his experience with attending a Billy Graham school for evangelism where he discovered the methodology of Billy Graham's ministry before he ever stepped on the platform and preached. He would look for a movement of prayer in a country before even going. He felt that if God was not moving it would be a waste of resources. There would be pastors and partners praying in advance to prepare the way of the outreach.</p><p>"When we work, we work, but when we pray, God works and we all want to be a part of changing the world, but that's a very daunting task. But if we will learn the value and the power of prayer, we can see how life-changing it can be, how world-changing it can be, and never underestimate the power of prayer." - Kevin</p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Bethany- I am Intentional About Seeing Needs Now
<p>Bethany shares about her experience on a medical trip to India, and what she learned working in a country that doesn't have access to the same resources in medical care as we do in the US yet they are resourceful and able to treat hundreds of patients at the medical clinics. </p><p>She shared a story about how when ministering at a leper colony they met a woman who was obviously in a lot of pain. They found out that she had broken her leg and was not able to get it properly cast. They had made a cast from scarves and sticks but wasn't able to get the x-rays and treatment that would have been somewhat routine in the US. Thankfully they were able to get her the treatment she needed and fit into a hard cast for only $50. </p><p>A special shout out to the regular donors at GHI for their monthly commitment to give. This is an example of how a $50 gift made a huge impact that day in the life of a woman who received critical medical care that she likely would have gone without your generous support.</p><p>Bethany has learned that God is the hero of the story and he doesn't really ask much of us to participate in his story. He provides everything and just asks for our obedience and willingness to go and say "yes" to him.</p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Missions is a Lifestyle - Not Just a Trip
<p>Kyle and his wife went on a trip with Global Hope India even though Kyle had recently lost his job. They felt called and didn't let their current circumstances stop them from that calling.</p><p>In that situation, they learned that if it's God's will it's God's bill, and He provided. This set this stage for the next phase in their life as God planted them in Salt Lake City with a Christian population of less than 2% and now they live in a mission field.</p><p>Kyle believes that this was God preparing them for this phase of their ministry in their hometown.</p><p>If there was one word that Kyle feels like it describes his mission experience in India it would be "trust."</p><p>Kyle's story is a great example that mission is a lifestyle and far more than a 10-day trip.</p><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

The Pointy End of the Stick - Beverly's Story
<p>Beverly shares her story about feeling led to help plant a Church in Raleigh with Elevation. They sent her a manual to read through and she felt like she was not a campus pastor or worship leader but she could pray and she could start a small group. That small group grew to two small groups, then a host, which lead to an Elevation Campus, and now two Campuses with thousands worshipping together in only four years. She is an incredible example of simple obedience.</p><p>"God can do so much with the tiniest move of faith." -Beverly.</p><p>She is a successful corporate leader, a mother, and a wife on top of helping grow a thriving church. You would think she would consider herself too busy for missions work, but when presented with the opportunity to go and serve in India she jumped at the opportunity.</p><p>"God can use anybody anytime, anywhere anyway. He wants." - Beverly</p><p>Beverly shared that one of the biggest changes to her life after a foreign mission trip was she came back as a person with a very small capacity to complain. </p><p>From being scared of public speaking as a 13-year-old to giving a talk to over 400 young women in India about her struggle with alcoholism and sexual abuse she felt like God used this trip as a full-circle moment to knock off the rough edges of her heart.</p><p>"One of the things we say over and over on this show is that we go on a mission trip really, trusting God to use us to impact the lives of others. And he absolutely does that. Yeah. But it's. Not uncommon at all to get on that trip and realize God's really ulterior motive is to change us." - Kevin</p><p>Beverly sums up what she learned as God has taught her that surrender is the best posture to have with Him. Surrender and then get out of His way.</p><p>"I'm just more attuned to understanding what God's priority is with every person, and that's to bring them into a knowledge of him. I'm more likely to look for his agenda with a person and listen for his voice." - Beverly</p><p>It's easy for us to think that mission trip is something for a teenager, not a professional... Beverly breaks through this mold and models the impact that a trip could make in your life.</p><p><br>Also mentioned in this episode:</p><ul><li>A Devotional by Mary Geegh called<a href="https://god-guides.com"> God Guides</a> </li></ul><p>____________</p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

Richard from Watoto in Africa
<p>The <a href="https://www.watotochurch.com/index.php">Watoto Church</a> went from humble beginnings in a hotel suite in downtown Kampala, Watoto Church is now, on average, a 27000-strong congregation with 30-weekend celebration services in Kampala and Gulu, Uganda; and Juba, South Sudan.</p><p>The church is vibrant, youthful, energetic and life-giving and Richard works as the guest relations coordinator. He shares about going on a mission trip to India and ministering to children and learning that giving is better than receiving.</p><p>This helped him understand that he worries too much and allowed him to see his salvation through the lens of the children he was serving. That changed his perspective on ministry and allowed him to get out of his shell and not be concerned with his insecurities in ministry.</p><p>Halfway through the episode, Pastor Kevin shares a real devotional from the mission field about focus. </p><p>Richard prays for the church in the US that we would never lose the wonder of what God can accomplish in their life if they will be obedient to the call of a short term mission trip.</p>

Called to Orphan Care - Kourtney's Story
<p>After going to India one Summer and South Africa the next, Kourtney knew without a doubt that she was called to orphan care ministry overseas. She was 12 years old when she felt this burden on her heart.</p><p>Kourtney shares her story of how God placed this call of orphan care ministry on her heart and what life looked like after. It may be odd to hear that a middle schooler was so sure that God was leading her to do something, but the "call" was really just God breaking Kourtney's heart for those who He would later use her to minister to. Life didn't dramatically change after those mission trips, and Kourtney faced many disappointments that eventually led her to have an incredible testimony. Hear how God fulfilled His promise to Kourtney in ways that she never dreamed possible!</p><p>There are no right or wrong answers that we can give to God. He knows each of our hearts and simply saying "Here I am Lord, send me" is an attitude God will honor. God can and will use heartbreak and disappointments to bring Glory to Himself and to reveal His heart for the fatherless. As you'll hear in this episode, Kourtney's story was not the one she wrote for herself, but looking back, she wouldn't change a thing about it.</p><p>Now, Kourtney, an <a href="https://www.ncsu.edu/">NCSU</a> Graduate, thrives in her role as Trip &amp; Teams Manager and is honored to get to send individuals to India to experience the same heart transformation that she experienced. Apply for a <a href="http://globalhopeindia.org/go">GHI trip</a> and you'll hear from her!</p><p>____________</p><p> </p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

From Tragedy to Comfort - Tadhg's Story
<p><strong>From Tragedy to Comfort: 3 Trips Changed Tadhg's Life:<br></strong><br></p><p>"So the general concept of a mission trip is that it's actually poorly looked on by a lot of people as you're flexing how much money you have and you're just showing off with all these pictures of all these cute little kids. It is so much more than that. It's nothing to do with that. You know what God has done in your own life, and you know what he can do in the lives of these kids who just are underprivileged." - Tadhg</p><p>Tadhg shares about the impact of his first mission trip on changing his perspective. He says it's something you can't learn in school, it's something that has to be experienced.</p><p>Tadhg shared a tragedy that he and his family went through and how God used that situation on a trip to India where a father had lost his son to help bring some comfort in a difficult situation.</p><p>After the mission trip ends Tadhg shares advice on how to avoid the trap of coming off the "high" of a trip to return to everyday life. Now you have an opportunity to minister to people that you see every day.</p><p>In one week on a short term mission trip to India Tadhg was able to share the gospel with thousands of kids using the simple tool of a <a href="https://www.letthelittlechildrencome.com/child-evangelism-tools/wordless-bracelet-kit">gospel bracelet</a>. It has five colors on it and is a tool to explain the gospel to children.</p><p>Learn more about short-term mission trip opportunities with Global Hope India at <a href="http://globalhopeindia.org/go">globalhopeindia.org/go</a>!</p><p>____________</p><p> </p><p><strong>Global Hope India:</strong> For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans &amp; Indian Nationals through missions.

From Exotic Dancing to Red Light District Missionary
<p><strong>From Exotic Dancing to Red Light District Missionary:<br></strong><br></p><p>Becky has been on staff at <a href="http://gethope.net/">Hope Community Church</a> for 17 years. She currently is their medical and safety coordinator. She loves reading and jogging. She is recently newlywed and has been a long-time supporter of Global Hope India.</p><p>Becky shares that one of the ways missions has changed her life is now she views being joyful as a command and not only a feeling. Seeing the joy of a people with seemingly less than American culture who possess so much joy had an impact on her outlook.</p><p>Becky tells her story of going from a rebellious teen to exotic dancing to working on a church staff to missionary. She has also gone to India multiple times and saw God take her story full circle as she ministered to women in the Red Light District of Mumbai. There is a local ministry partner that helps sex workers by providing a safe place for their children while they are working. Becky describes the trip as "Extraordinary, poinent and personal to have it come full circle."</p><p>We discuss what a day of ministry in the field really looks like, what it feels like, what you spend your time doing? Is it dangerous? Scary? Heartbreaking?</p><p>Becky encourages anyone who has been on a short term mission trip to keep in contact with the organizations so that you can get updates. The work God has started does not stop when we leave and you will want to hear what God is doing!</p><p>Each episode will have a short devotional from the field that has been shared with thousands of people on trips and internationals.
