Indigenous Ministries at Work in South Asia

India, though part of Asia, is a sub-continent with over 1600 “nations” contained within its borders. No greater convergence of diverse peoples, religions and languages exists on this planet than this great homeland of more than 1.2 billion people. While about 80% are Hindus, over 175 million Muslims live there as well, more than in any other country except Indonesia. Many indigenous Christian ministries are focusing their evangelistic efforts on reaching unreached people. There are more unreached people groups in India than in any other country on earth, and with several hundreds of thousands of villages that have no church, the task is great.

Today thousands of native missionaries still have no sponsors. Those who send $50 monthly to Christian Aid will be given the name, photo and a biographical sketch of a missionary for whom they can pray, plus information about the ministry with which he serves. Christian Aid will collect the support funds and send them to the respective indigenous missions overseas, who will apportion support to each worker according to his need.
