INDIA PASTOR SUPPORT
After retiring from 9 years of service as the Scoutmaster of Troop 256, Dan and his son John personally traveled to India and worked with the pastors in the slums and other areas. They saw first hand the incredible needs in that country. Through support of poor Indian pastors, he has assisted with orphanages, started micro-industries for widows, developed medical emergency funds, and provided general support of the poor people in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, and Karnataka.
Dan says there is a wonderful balance between assisting your home community and reaching out to other countries. According to Dan, “You are blessed for your deeds in your community, but no one is helping pastors in India. They are so grateful for support and they cannot believe someone they have never met would support them. They pray for your family unceasingly and this is truly beneficial.” Click here to know more: India.
