Operation Mobilization, India
For the last 11 years, teams from PBC have served with Operation Mobilization of India in the areas of medical mission, pastoral teaching, and Vacation Bible School. The teams work with Dalits, also known as untouchables.
PBC’s 12th trip hosted by OM India is in January 2019, and will focus on medical screening and pastoral teaching. The team will serve in Hyderabad and Belgaum, both located in southern India.
The medical team will spend most of their time in Belgaum, serving the Devdasi people who are recovering teenage prostitutes from the Hindu temples, treating those with HIV, and providing medical and dental screening for the elementary school children and their parents. The team will also lead village ministry, empowering women and teaching healthy living.
