Gospel Spreads through Indonesia

Open Doors with Brother Andrew is helping Christian pastors, leaders and other believers through their "Standing Strong Through the Storm" seminars in India. The seminars allow the participants to get the tools necessary to stand against persecution; the anti conversion law passed by India's High Court prohibits proselytizing.

Gospel for Asia celebrates their first year anniversary in leper ministry to the children in Haryana, India. Throughout the short time, GFA missionaries touched the untouchables with the love and compassion of Christ. Over the last year, teams started work in 36 leper colonies in 19 Indian states and planted five churches. GFA hopes to expand their new ministry and eventually set up a Bible school later this year to equip future missionaries for leper ministries.
