MOST RECENT PAST TOUR:  2016 Mission Tour to India: Delhi, Agra, Ludhiana, Amritsar
(February 26 – March 8, 2016)

Join us for the 2016 mission 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 Christian 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 tour group will arrive in Delhi, the capital of India. In Delhi you will experience urban India, shop, attend church and see some of the sites like the Qutb Minar, Humayun’s Tomb, the Gandhi Samadhi and India Gate. A day trip from Delhi will include a visit to the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort.

The team leader is Max Marble who 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 $3,500. To register for the trip fill out the registration form and submit it.  Then send a check for $200 to US Ludhiana CMC, PO Box 1327, Columbia, MO  65205.  A payment of $1500 will be due on June 25 with a final payment of $1800 due on September 1. Applicants will need to apply for a visa and will need to consult their physician about health precautions for traveling in India.   June 20 will be the deadline for applying.   All funds sent in are refundable until the nonrefundable airplane tickets are purchased sometime this summer.
