Mission Venturers in India

Under the auspices of the Virginia Baptist Mission Board, a Venturer serves Christ and Columbia in Vijayawada, India, by assisting in the two development centers sponsored by Spend Yourself®.    The Pearly Gates Center ministers to 100 children, and the Pindralavari Center ministers to 50 children, providing tutoring, Bible stories, games, songs, meals, and vitamins.  Both centers also have programs for expecting and nursing mothers. 
Presently, Columbia member Kristin Clifton is completing a two years-plus ministry there, and will return to the U.S. in November.  Columbia is seeking God's choice for our next two Venturers, who would serve together.  One female member has committed to serve, beginning this fall.  Who will be her team mate?   The service commitment is one to two years.  Columbia will provide necessary funding to cover air travel, apartment rent, utilities, food, transportation.
