FAQ

Applications to join Operation India or Operation Monsoon will open in a few months. Sign up to our emails or follow us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter to make sure you’re kept up to date with HistoryMakers teams.

During our time in New Delhi we’ll be staying in a hotel close to our partners. During our time in the rural south-east of the country, we will be hosted by locals.

When it comes to food in India, don’t expect a korma as you’d get from your local takeaway! Expect spice and lots of rice along with lots you’ve never seen before. Even if you’re nervous about trying new things, there’s plenty on offer for everyone.

FAQ

Yes and no. Yes, in the sense that an element of risk is involved in overseas travel of this kind. But no, the risk is not really about getting caught – if discovered the most likely result will be the confiscation of Bibles before being refused entry to the country. No HistoryMakers team has been caught before and our trip will be covered in prayer for protection from our Father in heaven.

Team members who have gone to carry Bibles into South-East Asia always talk about the believers they met and time spent with the local underground church, discovering what life as a Christian is like in a closed country.

Absolutely. You’ll need to make an appointment with your doctor or travel clinic to get sorted out with injections before you travel. Your doctor may also recommend bringing malaria tablets. While away in both India and South-East Asia you’ll never be far from a hospital or doctor in case of emergency.

What previous team members said

“I have been in such awe of the Christians in this part of the world: the strength of their faith, the work they do and how they live out Matthew 28:18-20. Their dependence on the Lord and the way they seek him so consistently is humbling and challenging. I for one am definitely challenged to take an honest and thorough look at my life and how I live it and make some changes for the better, for God.”

Marie-Louise

“God has challenged me a lot throughout these two weeks. I feel like my eyes are open to what global mission really is. Being out here on a small team and doing only a small bit and seeing all the work that still has to be done made me wonder why we all don’t consider it. God tells us that the gospel should be spread throughout the world, and that we should be true servants of that challenged me and made me really think about it.”
