MNN travels to tsunami zone

By July 19, 2005

Asia (MNN) — On December 26, 2004 the unthinkable happened. An earthquake off the coast of Indonesia sent shock-waves across Southeast Asia. The waves formed powerful tsunamis, hitting 12 countries. The hardest hit were Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India and others, killing thousands.

This week, Mission Network News will be in one of those areas to find out how the rebuilding is going. We also plan to find out how people are recovering and even more importantly, how God has used this to grow his church.

With increasing amount of persecution against Christians, one would think that share Christ’s love would be on the decline. However, the reality is even more Christians are being bold in their faith, according to Gospel for Asia. MNN’s Greg Yoder is traveling with Gospel for Asia this week to find out what’s happening not only in the tsunami zone, but in other areas of ministry.

Since many Dalits, the low casts of India’s society, have rejected Hinduism tensions are high, especially since Dalit Christians are will be in the Indian Supreme Court to request that equal rights be extended to those who give their hearts to Christ. Currently Dalits lose their rights to jobs, education and more when they give up Hinduism.

Reports from the field are scheduled to begin Wednesday. You can also follow our reports at
