The Brief

In February 2007, a mission team from St Stephen’s Church, Twickenham, will travel to New Delhi, India, to spend nine days serving the poor in the slums of this vast city. Working with the Indian NGO ‘Asha’, the aim of the mission is to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ to just some of the three million people who struggle daily to live in one of the worst environments in the world.

As a group, we will undertake some manual work to help improve the community clinic at the centre of the Zakhira slum colonies in West Delhi. We will also spend time each day with individuals and groups of slum dwellers, listening to their stories, encouraging them in all they do, performing workshops with the children and generally working with the Asha team to bring hope into a seemingly hopeless situation.
