Home to one-sixth of the world’s population, India has more than 1 billion people within its borders. At first glance, this is a nation rich in culture, with a colorful atmosphere and a bright future: grand history, delicious food, rare textiles, booming economic and technological sectors. India is on its way to becoming a competitive force in the global marketplace.
Beneath this colorful façade, however, is a dark and gloomy reality. India is at the center of the Hindu world. It is a nation plagued with an inescapable caste system, sexual slavery, illness, poverty, homelessness, and persecution of Christians.
All of these demonstrate India’s need for fundamental change. This change can only be brought through the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ.
