The 'Goa Team'
We took the 'India Team' to LHR4 to fly off to Goa for a 3 week summer project.
They are part of Graceworks and their summer misison projects. They will be working with Martin and Beena who run Bethesda Life centre ministres. I visited earlier in the year as you may have read on a previous blog.
My daughter Jo is part of the team, returning for a 2nd year running. She was really looking forward to working in the boys home again. Pictures of the kids adorn her bedroom wall.
They seem to have spend the past I-don't-know-how-many-months fundraising and completed the task on Wednesday with a pub-quiz style event at church which raised £600.
The connection with CMS is that all the leaders have done the orientation and training module that CMS runs for short term teams. I was also involved in the oprientation weekend running the Bafa Bafa cross cultural experience simulation game. Lots of fun.
Go Goa go !
