(India)–Elsewhere, an American evangelist is heading to India for evangelistic meetings despite lack of funds and threats against Christians. Adrian Jones of Mission Evangelism is traveling to Kerala State at the request of believers there. Even though an American was asked to leave Kerala for preaching the Gospel on a tourist visa, Jones is determined. “I didn’t have a bit of trouble getting my visa. I did not spell out in the visa everything I’m going to be doing, but in India, of course. But, I did let them know I was a speaker and that I would be going to do that and do that very thing and that didn’t seem to be a concern to them at all.” Jones says he’s traveling to India by faith. “At this moment in time, we’re 16-thousand dollars short. That’s 16-thousand dollars of 27-thousand, so you can see we have not even reached the half-way point. There have been a lot of people who have responded, but not enough yet to cover the 27-thousand dollar goal that we anticipate we would need over there.” Financial help is needed before February 1st.
