Jesus - the gift of a dying man

Economic deprivation and spiritual vitality seem to go hand in hand in north east India. Faith2Share has for some time partnered with churches in the state of Mizoram who are sending mission workers to many places around the world. The states of Assam and Nagaland also have strong churches but in neighbouring Manipur there are large communities without any visible Christian witness. Faith2Share partner Phijam Singh, from Manipur, grew up in a Hindu family but was introduced to Jesus by a cousin who stayed with him the whole night of 5 December 1990 and then died the following day. What a parting gift! Phijam now leads Adonai Harvest Mission (AHAM) reaching out to the majority Hindu population of Manipur. Last week he ran a leadership seminar attended by 35 local Christian leaders. The AHAM vision is large - a theological seminary, mission schools, orphanages, a widows' training school, a school for the blind and deaf-mute, and much more. In one of the poorest states in India this is a big big challenge but with our prayer support Phijam believes AHAM can achieve great things for God.
