Mission Trip to Ludhiana Christian Medical College & Hospital

2015 Ludhiana Christian Medical College & Hospital Mission Study Tour
February 25 – March 9, 2015

 Consider joining Max Marble, Executive Director of the Ludhiana Christian Medical College USA Board on a tour to experience India and visit the Ludhiana Christian Medical College and Hospital.  Founded by missionary doctor Edith Brown in the 1890s to provide medical care for women, the institution has grown to providing an education to men and women through colleges of medicine, dentistry, nursing, physical therapy and allied health.  Operating out of a large urban city the college provides community health services to rural areas through four rural clinics, frequent mobile clinics and home health visits by nursing students.  The college and hospital is affiliated with almost every church denomination serving in India.  Upon return it is our hope that your experience of visiting Ludhiana will be shared with family, friends and congregations.  Video clips and photos from the mission trip and other resources will be provided for this sharing.

The mission team will arrive in Delhi, the capital of India.  In Delhi the team will experience urban India, shop, attend church and see some of the sites like the Qutab Minar, Humayan’s Tomb, the Gandhi Samadhi and Akshardham.  The mission trip will also include a visit to Fatehpur Sikri and the Taj Mahal in Agra.

Max Marble was born and raised in India and is fluent in everyday Hindi.  Max has visited Ludhiana 7 times in the past four years as a member of the Ludhiana Christian Medical College and Hospital US Board.  The total cost including travel to India, travel within India, lodging and food will be $3,200.  To register for the trip fill out the registration form and return it to the Ludhiana CMC US Office with a check for $200.  A payment of $1800 will be due on May 1 with a final payment of $1200 due on July 15.  Applicants will need to apply for a visa and will need to consult their physician about health precautions for traveling in India.  May 1 will be the deadline for applying.
