Fundie missionary work or vacation? Collect money travel across the world and back to present it and the gospel in a whirlwinds tour of 9 days? Wouldn't Western Union be more effective?

""Mission India Oct. 29th - Nov. 7th
A woman stands aside a street in Tenali, India begging for alms as she holds a child not her own. He is merely a tool and will eventually die from neglect at which time she will discard the child and find a new baby to use. While this scenario stirs up sympathy for the child and hostility toward the woman, we must understand that these people are held in slavery to gods who cannot save them and to governments who do not care.
Their only hope is also ours: Jesus Christ!
Although the Christian Churches exists here the state religion is Hinduism and in many areas preaching the Gospel is illegal. Most of the pastors have willing hearts, but they lack Bibles and teachings of the basic orthodox doctrines. Many Hindus will readily accept Christ only to add Him to their other 300 million Gods. The burden of easing the spiritual and physical suffering of the Hindu is great indeed, but our God is even greater!
Beginning October 29th, my oldest son Shanon and I will minister to them for 10 days. We will bring comfort to over 250 orphans, many of them rescued from this life of neglect and abuse. The Bishop simply goes to these women and begs them, "Please let me have your child… I will give him life."
Will you help us give them life?
We will also hold a pastoral training conference for over 200 local pastors where we will disciple them in the basic biblical doctrines such as the Trinity, Creation, Baptism, and others which will help them disciple Hindus in the orthodoxy of the faith. Disease and danger are abundant, but in the words of William Carey "If you will hold the rope then (we) will go
Will you hold the rope?
One of our goals is to go and serve without being a burden to the local church, so in addition to the costs of airfare, food and supplies, we intend to carry with us an offering that we will present to them to help them in their ministry. This brings the total cost for our mission to $7000.00. As you can see, this is no small burden, but we believe that God has called us to this and that He will make provision for us.
