WHAT WE DO
This projects aims to help supply funds to provide the correspondence courses. A number have come to the Lord through this means. Some progress into fulltime leadership training for the Kashmiri church. Understanding the nature of the work in Kashmir, this is a not a project where regular detailed updates are able to be given. In recent decades evangelists from other parts of India have attempted to reach the Kashmiris. Many returned to their homes after being beaten. In some cases they were killed and were returned in a coffin. Because of the opposition many have endured, the Kashmiris gained a reputation for being strongly resistant to the Gospel.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Cost: £1 for a full set of correspondence course material. £30 a month provides for costs for a full time team member to continue working. £200 covers the cost of providing a full week of follow-up seminars and travel in Delhi. Give to Kashmir ministries here.
PRAY FOR

The four million Muslims living in Kashmir are among the most unreached and unevangelised people groups on earth. Pray for those who have been saved. This is a huge step for them to take. Pray for grace to persevere.

Missions Quote

"I believe that in each generation God has called enough men and women to evangelize all the yet unreached tribes of the earth. It is not God who does not call. It is man who will not respond!" - Isobel Kuhn, missionary to China and Thailand
