Pastors learn from the church in India and Nepal

On Sunday, November 6, a group of six BIC pastors and missionaries departed for Delhi, India to join in fellowship with believers there. Despite social and political pressure, and in some cases great poverty, the Indian and Nepali churches are growing and multiplying at a dizzying rate.

Led by Ken Hoke, regional administrator for the BIC Church in Asia, this “vision trip” provides an opportunity for North American church leaders to both celebrate with and learn from our brothers and sisters in Asia. Accompanying Hoke are his wife, Carol; Ken Abell, senior pastor, Morrison (IL) BIC Church; Mary Lister, associate pastor, CrossRoads Church of Salina, KS; Jonathan Lloyd, missionary to Malawi; and Chris Sharp, associate pastor, Pequea BIC Church (Lancaster, PA).

Please pray for . . .

  1. the churches in India and Nepal as they continue to share Jesus despite persecution and political obstacles
  2. the vision trip team’s ability to communicate across the cultures as they speak
  3. the health of the team as they eat a wide variety of food
  4. the ongoing impact of the team—that they will be a great encouragement to all they touch
  5. the participants’ safety as they travel back to the U.S. and Malawi on Monday
