Stateside Team


The Send Hope Now Team is a small, but deeply committed, group who connect people, businesses, and churches to all that God is doing in India. By giving to this need you are helping cover the cost of running an office—everything from salaries, to travel for fundraising, to office supplies, to equipment, and bank and government fees. Your prayers and financial support are what make it possible for the Send Hope Now Team to carry out their work together… which in turn, brings HOPE to the beautiful people of India.

"My wife, Joy, and I are privileged to have grown up in Papua New Guinea and to have served in many places (OH, MO, WI, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, PNG… ) and made some amazing friends along the way. Now we're in beautiful North Idaho, where we try to keep up with our three adventurous sons and a drooling boxer dog. We love being part of bringing the hope of Jesus to the beautiful people of India!"

"The thing that brings me the most joy is hanging out with my 3 boys and my husband Dave. Hiking, meeting up with friends, or a trip with my family to the hot springs are all things that rejuvenate me. I love working in the Send Hope office doing whatever is needed to serve India. I will be happy to assist you with correspondence for your beneficiary, submitting donations, and questions about any current projects or fundraisers. It’s a blessing to serve you!"

Volunteer Coordinator

Alissa Lauer

Having grown up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I followed God’s call to serve in Latin America for a number of years before returning to the Northwest to marry my husband of now nearly 14 years. Bob and I have been busy raising our 2 kids and enjoying our family time together exploring Idaho and beyond ever since. Our favorite adventures include visiting our country’s beautiful national parks as well as skiing. I am so grateful that God has a place for me to serve in this ministry that is reaching the poorest 10% of India’s population. It’s exciting to be part of what God is doing there.

"I absolutely love punny jokes and laughing, traveling, outdoor adventures, and spending time with my husband and family. I truly love Jesus and want to live a life for Him, which is why I believe I was brought to Send Hope Now. I first heard about the mission in India about 16 years ago and ever since then I had always wanted to be a part of it somehow. It is a privilege to be a part of this beautiful mission and to be used by Lord in this capacity. I am here to serve you, our compassionate sponsors, with any of your sponsorship needs; in addition to serving our children, pastors, and staff in India. God is on the move!"
