Dear Partners in Missions – India,
Greetings from India, I know that you all love missions India and you are praying for the same for which we will remain grateful for ever.
I would like to share an important prayer Request with you.
Our everyday prayer is that we would like to conquer India for Christ, extent His kingdom as much as possible,
Northern part of India is almost unreached, there is less than 1% Christians, many villages do not have a witness to say about Christ, when the Christian world is speaking about the second coming of Christ, many of the North Indian people have not heard the first coming of Christ, hence our desire and prayer is somewhat penetrate into the northern part of India with the glorious gospel of Christ, for which we keep Bihar our Mission base in India as our spring board.
