This is a ministry that is very near to my heart. I think the world of Biju Thomas and ask you to take a few moments to watch this video about his ministry. I have had the privilege of working with him on 3 or 4 occasions in country.
Since 2005 Transformation India Movement has grown from 10 church planters and 10 churches with around 500 believers, to 28 church planters, 223 pastors/elders, 152 churches, 84 outreach groups and over 7,000 adult believers. Simultaneously, T.I.M. in partnership with North Carolina Baptist Men (and others) have drilled over 700 clean water wells, started around 80 primary schools that educate over 3,000 children who had no access to schools, trained hundreds of women in sewing schools to help provide for their families, provided medical care, disaster relief and in several other ways have served hundreds of communities that previously had no Christian presence/witness.
This is another great example of proclaiming AND demonstrating the reign of God in a very dark place. Many great things happening in Bihar, India… however this Indian state of over 85 million people (size of the state of Tennessee) is still less than 1/2 of one percent Christian. Please pray for and support the work of T.I.M.
