                                                                                              are increasingly

       For a new believer here, gaining ultimate freedom in Christ often means losing other freedoms—like drawing water from
       the community well or walking down the street without fear of being beaten. Amazingly—churches are growing in this place
       where many of the 400 million people living here are in desperate poverty, Hindu is the predominant religion, and most have
       never heard of Jesus.

       To Langham Scholar Finny Philip, it is a vast mission field.
       “God is on the move in the northern part of India, particularly in the rural communities of the north,” he shares. “There is
       a tremendous growth that is happening.”
