Feast on a Leaf

Far from Western ways, Christmas dinner takes on a uniquely sub-tropical look for a young girl in Chhattisgarh state, India enjoying a yuletide outreach by an indigenous ministry last year. The ministry has helped to transform rural communities through evangelism, vocational training, publishing, youth outreach and caring for children's basic needs. More than 260 churches have formed as a result of these efforts. "We do preaching, teaching, and prayer," the ministry director said. "In the village areas, a lot of persecution is going on, but we can do a lot of wonderful work through prayer, especially for sick people among non-Christians."
