Dear Friends,

Half a million Indian communities still lack any witnessing body of believers, meaning four out of five Indians will go their entire lives without knowing a single Christian. And yet, people’s hearts are open to the “Good News” like never before! God loves India. He has called us to bring hope, to bring freedom from fear, to shine His Light in dark places.

Pray for the 400+ Vacation Bible Schools that will be conducted in the South Indian States of Tamil Nadu and Kerala during April and May. Many of these schools will be utilizing the Kids for Christ materials and training that equips the children to witness by using hand motions, dramas, crafts, songs and other techniques. The artist who had the privilege of designing these materials wrote, “By doing this work I came to know the materials well. I attended and helped at the Kids for Christ workshops.  After learning the Outline, I started to share gospel with my customers in the shop and friends. I was prompted to start a Sunday class for children in the premises of a shop.  By God’s grace the Sunday class became a Sunday worship service. Presently 28 persons are attending this church. Now evangelism has become a life style for me!”

Pray for $35,000 in funds needed to conduct 150 workshops in Northeast India this year, equipping 6,500 believers as life-time witnesses. Northeast India is extremely important and influential in reaching the least evangelized people. It shares a porous border  of 3,220 miles with several difficult to evangelize neighbouring countries including Tibet in the north (867 miles), Myanmar in the east (1,020 miles), Bangladesh in the south-west (992 miles), Nepal in the west (60 miles) and Bhutan in the north-west (283 miles).

The Lord continues to open doors to areas never touched with the Gospel. The support you have provided is building the foundation from which Equip India has reached thousands of villages and millions of people. Thank you for your faithfulness.
