It was an eye-opening as well as challenging visit by which we could learnt and listen the simple and humble faith of ordinary people and received excellent hospitality and warm welcome out of their sincere heart. Though they are suffering from many lacking and backwardness, they are extra ordinary in their strong conviction and faith in Lord Jesus Christ.
We have realized that it is the need of the hour to encourage and support the people of those mission fields in their faith journey. We need to be with them in their pains and agonies. They are really abled and talented and they could able to be the subjects of Mission in the days to come!
