The Republic of India is the most ethnically diverse country on earth. It is made up of 2,500 distinct people groups living over 28 states and 7 union territories.
Christians are believed to make up around 5.5% of the total population of over 1.2 billion, with Hinduism being the majority religion.

- Pray for our partners who oversee our Sowing Seeds and other projects which continue to bring encouragement and hope to those who are being given assistance.
