Our Upcoming Mission – India

January 6, 2009

India is a country that up til now we mostly knew about from the movie “Gandhi” and from the recent terrorist attacks on the city of Mumbai (Bombay). In January 2009 Laurie and I have the privilege of teaching in India, as Rolling Stone Ministries expands into Asia for the first time.

India is home to more than a billion people, and the predominant religion is Hinduism, a pantheistic (“God is everything”) and polytheistic (“belief in many gods”) cluster of religious traditions. Currently there is severe persecution of Christians by Hindus in the Indian state of Orissa. Laurie and I will be teaching much further south, in the state of Tamil Nadu, in the city of Chennai (Madras), home to some eight million people.

We will be teaching and conducting leadership seminars for graduate-level students and others attending Hindustan College and Hindustan Bible Institute in Chennai. It is our prayer that we encourage and inspire our brothers and sisters in India as they seek to reach their own country with the Good News of Jesus.
