Weaving helps spread the Gospel in Northern India.

By June 21, 2006

India (MNN)–FARMS International reports continued growth from their projects in Nagaland, India. The region is a border state, and one of the most Christian in India.

However, it is on the border with Myanmar, south of Arunachal Pradesh and east of Assam, all areas that have shown some hostility to the work of the Great Commission.

That’s what also makes it a strategic area to reach neighboring areas with the hope of Christ. FARMS hopes that as their loan programs grow, the churches will be better suited to support cross-cultural missions programs.

One of their micro-credit recipients, Mrs. Asoile, is a case in point. She has been able to put her weaving skills to work.

Since setting up her business, she has been able to hire four others, and they weave shawls for sale. What typically takes her team two weeks to weave brings in between $22.00 and $39.00.

With the money they earn from their work, she can help support her family (not only basic living, but also tuition fees), her evangelist husband and her church.
