MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A Marshall County district attorney who fights to put bad guys away is now on a mission of salvation. He's heading off on a spiritual journey to India.

Not in the sense of building homes or providing medical assistance, but rather he's going to minister Christianity to those in a largely Hindu culture.

Steve Marshall is a prosecutor who spends most of his time in a courtroom seeking justice for crime victims. But for the next couple of weeks he's trading the comforts of home for nights on a concrete floor with no heat or running water.

He's going to a remote part of Northwest India near the Himalayan Mountains.

Marshall and a half-dozen other people from Albertville's Lifepoint Church will be working under the radar as missionaries to preach Christianity.

It's something he feels called to do and expects it to be a life-changing experience.

"Appreciate the nature of my faith and what I've had an opportunity to do, but probably gives me a greater appreciation of what God has given me here, the opportunity he's giving me in the position that I hold to be able to demonstrate my faith and hopefully makes me a better father, better husband, and a better person that lives with Christ," he said.

Marshall said they will be visiting a Leper community as well as a children's orphanage.

They leave for their trip on Wednesday morning.
