Hey guys! My name is Sean and ill be heading to india soon. Can't wait to see how God moves through everyone involved in this mission to our friends in India. I'm really excited to see and meet everyone, as well as develop relationships with friends who share the same faith, but have different cultures. I'm sure I'll be encouraged and this experience will deepen my relationships with God, and through that process, all of you as well!

"Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing" - John 15:4-5

I picked this passage to take with me on this mission because I feel a need for authenticity at this point in my life. I want to make sure that I am a friend of God and his spirit has filled me to the point that it can overflow onto those around me. I want my life's journey to be what God has planned for me, not just what I can deem as a good life for myself and those around me. This to me is true sacrifice as well as service to God, and I pray that he will reveal his plans for myself as well as all of you. Love you guys and aloha!

Pure Love

Excited to see my family in a couple of months.  Excited that we get to partner with Impact Fellowship (TJ) and Brother Joe.  Excited for the team that God is putting together and how we will grow closer to God and one another.  My heart is expectant of what God will unfold to touch the nation of India with His pure love.  

Love must be sincere.  Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.  Be devoted to one another in love.  Honor one another above yourselves.  Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.  Share with the Lord's people who are in need.  Practice hospitality.  
(Romans 12:9-13)

Aloha Mussoorie!

Aloha my future India family! My name is Jon Fujii and I am the father of Juliana Fujii. This will be our first trip to India and our first mission trip together. My wife Karyl and 14-year-old son Koa will be our prayer warriors at home in Hawaii. This is a picture of our family.
God has called us to India in 2017 to go on mission, to share life and love with each other, and to serve the people of India with the gifts that God has given us. We look forward to meeting each and every one of you, and to see and hear the great work God is doing in your lives. 

My scripture rudder for this mission is from Matthew 20:26-28:
But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave. 28 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many."

Aloha India

Aloha everyone!

My name is Max Mukai, and I am very excited and privileged to be attending the mission to India this upcoming Spring.

I am born and raised here in Honolulu, Oahu and I cannot wait to be able to share the aloha that I have learned with India.

The verse that will guide me through this journey is, " We love because He first loved us." 1 John 4:19. This speaks to me on many levels, one of which is that I have been given much and I see it as a duty and honor to be able to give back.

Mahalo ke Akua.
