Revival in north east India makes waves among the unreached

In the 1950s the Indian army went through Nagaland burning towns and villages forcing the people to flee to the jungle.

Largely monsoon climate with high humidity levels
90% of Nagalese are considered to be Christian

In these harsh conditions the Lord provided for the people in amazing and often miraculous ways. There was huge conversion. This revival continued for years. Prayer carried on for a long time and in 1976 another major revival broke out and the effects of this are still continuing today.

The second revival inspired missions as never before. Naga eyes were opened – really for the first time - to see the neighbouring States and countries where the Gospel had not yet taken root. So 1976 saw a huge expansion of the work and the launch into missionary endeavour. This was felt at home too where many common sins like bitterness and unforgiveness within Churches were also dealt with.


The Asia Workers' Fund helps equip Naga evangelists to minister across other Himalayan regions, including Nepal and Bhutan. Why: For many years Nagaland has enjoyed rich spiritual revival. It has one of the strongest evangelical populations in the world. It’s believers are now beginning to catch the missions vision for other people groups in NE India and the Himalayan region. AsiaLink is able to help with missions training for Nagas as well as with the high cost of travel to distant locations for ministry to the unreached.

Cost: Suggested amount: £20. Give to Asia Workers ministry here.


That the vibrancy and depth of the Naga Church would translate itself into a passionate and sacrificial missionary vision for those in neighbouring regions.
