Our Trip to India

Jay and Cokie Westfall, long time members of Winter Park Baptist Church in Wilmington NC also have deep and meaningful roots within First Baptist Church, Mt Olive as well. Cokie grew up attending First Baptist during High School and college and her parents continue to be long time members.

Since 2007, Jay and Cokie have been serving in Bangalore, India providing medical advocacy and health education to impoverished peoples marginalized from society with the overall purpose of encouraging preventative health and wellness such that the persons they serve become their own best advocates for a healthy life.

In 2013, they co-founded an Indian NGO (Non-Government Organization), The Kshema Foundation, which continues the purposes of their original medical outreach as well as partnering with other Indian NGO’S, churches, children’s homes and Indian medical government sponsored programs to bring holistic medical care to those in need.
