(India)–Next, tensions continue to be high along the India-Pakistan border. Mission India’s John DeVries says he’s concerned about the conflict having an impact on their work. “We have work in all three of the border states.

DeVries would like prayer for their 35-million-dollar initiative over five years to expand this program. “This is the thing the Indian government is very much interested in. They realize they can’t face the future with a nation that’s over 50-percent illiterate. And, it’s probably the most effective way to bring the Gospel to adults in India.”
