We are excited to introduce ourselves to TellAsia’s growing circle of friends and supporters! We are David and Shari, originally from New York and New Jersey, but now living in Portland, Oregon.
In 2007 we visited the cities of Lucknow and Varanasi in north India to observe TellAsia’s work firsthand. We were impressed with what we saw: New believers embracing a vision to preach the gospel and plant new churches in their own villages. Impoverished children learning to read and write in TellAsia’s rural education programs. Men and women traveling two days by train or bus with nothing but a Bible and a change of clothes in order to receive equipping at one of TellAsia’s leadership training events
In 2010 we spent time in India with TellAsia’s leaders and sharing our lives with the 32 boys and girls at Blue Haven Children’s Home. During our visit we saw clearly that TellAsia needs a full-time USA team who can raise awareness and build ministry partnerships. With more than a decade of successful work in north India, TellAsia is eager to share with American churches the amazing things God is doing in north India.
Starting March 15, 2012, we’ll be working as TellAsia’s first full-time Development Team. Our new role will include meeting with church leaders, writing grants, contacting donors, developing media, and speaking publicly about the passion in our hearts: God’s love for north India, one of the neediest places on earth.
Please correspond with us! Tell us why you’re interested in India, and how TellAsia can help you take a step closer to fulfilling the desires God has placed in your heart.
