How you can pray

India is where our work began over 150 years ago. Across Tamil Nadu today a network of Tamil Baptist Churches are growing fast under Indian leadership. Churches rapidly outgrow their buildings as the Lord reaps a harvest among the Tamil people. After all the years of service there by many remarkable and faithful missionaries, nothing could make us rejoice more!

We make regular trips to visit our Indian friends, to help them train their pastors, many of whom work in situations where there is opposition and where there are few resources to support their work. Training the rising generation to serve their churches well as pastors is a vital work at the present time.

We continue to be involved in a small way financially, helping to fund some church-planters, to fund a small amount of literature work, and to support some work among widows and orphans. All our financial support for India goes to the Tamil Baptist Trust. (We are unable to provide any grant funding to other ministries in India.)
