The Need: The latest statistics show that 98 percent of Londoners in their 20’s and 30’s have never even met a Christian. The need is great for the gospel to spread in London.  

 

Additional Trip Facts:

-We will stay at a budget hotel to keep our costs as low as they are…not fancy, but clean

-We will get approximately 1.5 days for tourism.  You can go wherever you want.

-We may never step foot in a vehicle the entire time we are there…all “tube” travel

 

The Kind Of Person Who Should Attend This Trip:

-Feels led by God to come…not coming because it’s London (cool place)

-Bold in initiating conversation with people they don’t know

-Can handle being blown off or rejected

-Can roll with the flow and handle last minute changes by missionary

-Someone who feels comfortable transitioning a topic of conversation towards God

-Can walk a LOT

-Someone who can feel content with obedience and not necessary visible result from evangelism
