A Critical Dilemma for Church Planters in India

Five years ago Pastor Chauhan* and his wife, Monica, moved to a village in North India to plant a church. People in this area had no knowledge of the gospel, and the Chauhans met with strong resistance. But they started a Sunday School and faithfully and persistently shared the gospel with children.

The classes had such a positive impact on the children, that some of the adults in the community became interested in what the church was doing. Today they pastor a growing congregation of believers who are an essential part of the work God is doing to reach the people of India for Christ.

However, the Chauhans face a dilemma. It’s not the constant resistance they face, their meager income, or their lack of possessions—they remain undaunted by these things. Their struggle is that their children have no access to an education. They are living in isolated, rural areas. Government education is inadequate, private school is too expensive, and homeschool materials are unavailable.

So they are left with a tough decision: Do they continue to minister in isolated areas, or do they move to a place where their children can get an adequate education?

The Chauhans are not the only ones facing this predicament. Currently, 100 children of church planters in India are in need of help to attend school.

Read the rest of the story, and how you can help these church planters continue the work to which God has called them over at Faces of Eurasia.

Thanks in advance for your generosity in giving to the kingdom of God. And thanks, as always, for being a part of the Eurasia community. We couldn’t do this without you.
