Fw: CICM India Trip, September 16-30

Looks like there are some changes to the India trip.  We are now going in September of this year since the other churches have backed out and we did not want to have the missionaries spend so much effort on just two people so we will join another church that is going Sept. 16-30th.

This was a little surprising a couple weeks ago but now it is very understandable. 
We'll go in God's timing. 
Thank you for your prayers and support.      
Coram Deo!!!

L. V. Spencer and Tom Moen,


After prayerful consideration and group changes, we really feel that it is best to cancel our trip to India in March and reschedule our trip with CICM for September 15-30 to join the other group.  Since it was necessary for the other two church groups to drop out of the original March itinerary, we feel that it is would be inappropriate to request CICM to host two people alone; we would rather join a larger group later in the year.  As a result, Chris Allen and I are presently the only two members of our church that are preparing to join the team in September; Leanna is not available for either dates.  If more slots are available for other members of our church, I would be happy to begin advertising the openings; otherwise, we plan for just the two of us to join the team under the direction of Tom Moen.  I hope this meets your approval.  Thank you for your consideration and patience.


Phil Smith


P. S.  Leanna is still very interested in CICM and is beginning to pray and plan for 2010 instead.  She will be taking several business trips to Southern India this year and is looking to connect with the Christian community during her visits.
