Over 121 Million Scriptures Placed In India
Since opening India’s first Gideon camp in 1961, more than 121 million Scriptures have been distributed there by The Gideons International. With over 18,000 members now in India, the gospel is being shared there at an ever-increasing rate. Our members placed more than 11 million copies of God’s Word in India during the past year.
This incredible growth comes in spite of great challenges. Persecution of Christians in India is rampant and many have deemed Christianity a religion of the underclass. However, God is greater than these challenges. Doors are opening as conflicts between the major religions there have created opportunities for spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and sharing the hope found in Jesus Christ.
Going forward, please pray for God’s protection on the churches, pastors, and the association’s members in India as they continue to share the gospel. Also pray that as Scriptures continue to go out, millions in India would come to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior.
