Because of the recent rise of Covid-19 in India, we decided to push the IDF out one month to give our in-country partners a chance to assess the situation in their communities, protect themselves and their families, and rest and recover before preparing for the India Discovery Fair. What does this mean for you?
It means you still have one month to register for the India Discovery Fair! We are starting the program at 6:30pm on June 1st. We’re trying something new this year. We’ve shortened the program from what we did last year. On June 1st, we’ll be focusing on just three stories of how lives are being directly impacted and transformed by our work in India.
We are going to be using Zoom’s breakout room feature. Using breakout rooms, the event will mirror our live events where each “booth” is now represented by a virtual room. Each virtual room will focus on one of the three highlighted ministries and you will get a chance to be a part of a smaller group to ask questions of our international partners about a specific ministry. When breakout rooms are enabled, Zoom allows you to choose which room you would like to join with a simple click. All the rooms will be clearly labeled. If you’re interested in the Clean Water Project for example, you would be able to choose that room and hear specific details from our staff and partners in India.
We’re really excited to test out this new feature, but there’s more!
Not only will you get the chance to interact live with our partners in India, but you will also have the chance to participate in an online auction and help support the ministry in India. The sign up for the auction is below along with the registration for the live Zoom event. Please go to both links and fill out the form so that we have an idea of who will be attending and so that you don’t miss out on all the cool merchandise up for bid!
Through the action alone last year, we were able to raise several thousand for Clean Water, Education and Literacy for Children and Adults, Computer Skill Training Courses, and Tailoring Schools in rural India. Please sign up and help us transform lives and bring the Gospel to a people in need! See you June 1st!
