Why Hindi Belt Mission? BECAUSE WE HAVE BURDEN FOR THE LOST SOULS

 

`

Approximately 70% of the mission work of India is concentrated in south and north east India

Only 30% mission work is going on in the rest of India, including Hindi Belt

Some of the Hindi belt region was once known as the “graveyard of missionaries”

This Hindi Belt also known as “Resistant Belt for mission” is thus neglected
WE ACCEPTED THE CHALLENGE

 

Our Aim

Our Instruments

  • 50 missionaries (6 missionaries are on leave for higher studies)

Our Strength

  • The Lord Jesus Christ

  • Rev P. I. Mathai (Plavumkal Achen) initiated the idea of missionary work in Hindi speaking regions in the first Bahya Kerala Conference in Bhopal in 1964
