We have arrived in London! We have a short wait until we board our next flight to Bangalore. The first flight went well and everything went smoothly, but we are all anxious about this next one lasting even longer. We were happy to have a larger plane and to each have our own personal screen to watch movies, and are hoping we get the same experience in Our next 10 hour flight! Please keep us in your prayers as we complete the final half of our trip to India.
The last few days of training before departing were great, and allowed our team to grow closer and stronger! We shared meals, excitements and fears for the trip, and our personal faith journeys. The team is looking forward to strenghting our team unity further with our time in India, and we cannot wait to see what God has in store for us!
Meet our team heading to India to serve with Audio Scripture Ministries and World Cassette Outreach!

We’re excited to send our first SEED team to India on Saturday, May 13 to serve with Audio Scripture Ministries. View the team calendar for a glimpse of how Hope College student-athletes will utilize their passion for sport to share the love of Christ with individuals around the world over the next two weeks!
It is our mission to equip Hope College student-athletes to serve as disciples who share the Good News of Jesus Christ through sport.
We recognize that sport provides an opportunity for athletes to have a significant platform from which to influence others. In traveling with the SEED program, Hope College student-athletes will utilize their passion for sport to share the love of Christ with individuals around the world.
Through participating in the SEED program, student-athletes will be intentionally challenged to use their experiences to sow the seed and water the harvest so that the Good News of Jesus Christ takes root in their own lives as it is shared around the world.
