If you’re going to invest money in spreading the gospel the best place to do it is in India through GHI
The people of India are the most diverse people in the world. Dr Billy Graham said, “As India goes all of Asia goes with her.” As we reach the 1.3 billion people of India they will help us to reach the 4.6 billion people of Asia.
India has the highest opportunity for the gospel with over 1 billion people who don’t yet know Jesus. In the USA there is 1 believer for every 1.5 people. In India there is only 1 believer for every 18,000 people. Each day 25,000 people die without knowing Jesus.
During 2020 we need to collect $1M as we Expand to Fulfill the Great Commission. Join us in prayer that we can SEND more people, SHARE more resources, and SEE more results in 2020. Let’s pray for more salvations, baptisms, gospel workers trained, and churches launched. Great is His Faithfulness!2-Ministry-Model
We want to pray for every person affected by COVID-19. While we pray for those who have physically been ill, we also lift up those who have been laid off, those parents who have become in-home teachers, the children who worry about their next meal, and the leaders who are guiding under fierce pressure. We rest in the assurance that nothing surprises God and He will always have the final say!
Pray for GHI during COVID-19:
- All GHI trips are currently postponed as travel is restricted during this time. Pray for clarity.
- Our partners in India cannot host medical clinics or large gatherings. Pray for healing.
- Construction on a water project in Mumbai has been put on hold. Pray for provision.
- Our partner in Mumbai relocated children from their building in the busy city to land owned by the ministry outside of the city in hopes of keeping them healthy. Pray for protection.
- Our partners in India are experiencing financial hardship as both monetary and in-kind donations (meals, volunteer doctors/teachers visits, etc) have ceased during this quarantine period. Pray for perseverance.
Pray for India:
Mumbai is the economic and cultural powerhouse of India, home of the stock exchange and the hugely influential film industry, Bollywood. It is also a city in great need of prayer.
a) Mumbai’s huge economy pulls in migrants from most of India, resulting in a massive influx of people, most of whom end up in slums. This results in great diversity, but also tension and desperation. It is host to India’s largest slum (Dharavi, with over one million people and 16,500 people per square mile population density); in fact, 60% of Mumbai’s population live in slums.
b) Human need and suffering in Mumbai are great. There are 200,000 victims of the sex trade, over 100,000 street children and nearly 300,000 AIDS cases. The slums especially are rife with crime, pollution, disease, poverty, unemployment and, too often, hopelessness.
c) Mumbai has the second-highest Christian population of India’s megacities, but the Christian percentage has actually gone down in recent years from 5% to 4%. There are many Catholics and a growing number of Protestant denominations and churches. Pray that Christians may be salt and light in their city.
