Story number 4 for 5 Oct 2000

By October 5, 2000

Meanwhile, because of the increasing number of people coming to Christ in India, evangelicals are doing all they can to build churches in that country. India Evangelical Mission is one such group. President of the organization G-V Matthai explains the need. “There are people who can not meet in their home. Their houses are small. They can not conduct a worship service. We have the need to build five churches this year. It will take about four-thousand dollars to buy a piece of property and build a church.” According to Matthai those churches will help meet some of the need, but not all of it. “Every week, 35 new churches are being established in India. So, the Christian population is now about 4.4 percent out of one-billion people. So, God is doing a great work.”
