My India Support Letter

As you may recall, I have been talking about my India missions trip for a little while now but I have (finally) finished my support letter and wish to share it. I put it out there because heck, you never know who might be looking at my blog and might want to help in my fundraising. If you are interested in me sending you this letter my mail, please let me know! Drum roll please:

Hi friends and family,

I have the exciting opportunity to share with you about my returning to India on another mission’s trip with ROCKHARBOR church! As you may remember, I went to India in March; and I have the chance to help lead a team of 33 ROCKHARBOR members going to Andhra Pradesh, India this December. The first trip to India was truly memorable and we were able to accomplish great things. It was such a blessing to be able to interact with the people on staff at Harvest India as well as help build relationships with people in remote villagesl we were able to supply them with food, clean water and share our faith with them and that we want to give because we have been given so much. It was also eye opening because I saw first hand the cast system as well as the poverty and great need in the country, which Harvest India is trying to make strives to improve. Now I have the unique privilege of helping lead a trip.
Our team will be traveling from December 26th to January 9th. During our trip we will be: helping provide villages with wells for pure drinking water, giving food and medical aid to the poor and those considered untouchable, aiding the pastors in evangelist events to reach many villages with the hope of the Gospel and also giving support and hope for a better life to a local orphanage Rockharbor sponsors.

Our first and most important support needed is prayer. We are asking for prayer:
• For our team safety while traveling, and during our time in India
• That we are spiritually prepared for any spiritual battles that may be encountered
• That we may share the Gospel boldly & with the love that Our Savior Jesus has shown us
• For unity, support, flexibility and compassion within our team
• That people we meet will have hearts prepared to receive Jesus as their Lord & Savior, and One True God
• That all the team members will be able to raise the financial support necessary to go
• That the pastors, church planters and people of India will be encouraged and strengthened as followers of Christ.

Secondly, there is a need for financial support if you feel called to also participate financially. I have committed to raise $3,500. If you would like to make a donation to my trip or know of others who would, please make donations payable to ROCKHARBOR Church. Please do not write my name or the country anywhere on the check. You may use the included return envelope, which is already addressed and indicates that the donation is for my trip. If you use your own envelope, please mail it to:
Attn: India/Brittani Ehrhorn
3080 Airway Ave. Suite A
Costa Mesa, CA 92626
Please note that donations are tax deductible and are non refundable. All donations will go towards the overall cost of the trip, and any excess funds will first help to cover the team’s costs and secondly will be gifted to the ministry we are going to serve.
Thank you all very much for your support of this ministry; I am so blessed for you to be apart of it alongside me.
