Siliguri, India

the gateway of North East India,
Pleasant Hill will be taking a group to Siliguri, India from June 20th through the 29th. We have been praying, as a church, on a way to start and expand a mission ministry through our church. We believe that God has given us the perfect opportunity to do that. The group going needs all the prayers they can get. After the mission trip, Allison House will be staying and teaching at a local school in Siliguri! If God leads you to give to this ministry please see Kenny or Amy Windsor, Jennifer Kelley, or Rene House.

We had 85 at VBS here they are with their new Bible printed in Hindi.

from sweating in the humidity. They did an amazing job at the VBS
and fell in love with the kids.”
