Health isn’t everything, but quality of life is significantly lacking without proper health. The World Health Organization estimates a global shortage of 7.2 million health professionals, with India listed as having one of the greatest shortages. Millions of people living in rural India have no access to healthcare. Needless to say, the huge shortage of…

    This is a very special year for our ministry: we’re celebrating 70 years of IGL’s witness and outreach in India! I praise God that in all these years, evangelism and effective discipleship has remained at the very top of our ministry priorities. We never have and never will drift from this commitment, and I believe…

      “I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” Matthew 16:18 The Church has centuries of human history, tradition and culture behind it. Thus, in regions of the world where for the first time the Christian faith is breaking in and local churches are being born, we must ask: On…

        We are living in a decisive moment in history. It is critical for God’s children to understand both the significance of this time and how to redeem it for the kingdom. Simply engaging in a lot of ministry activity does not necessarily bear kingdom fruit. Quite often Christian ministries fail to distinguish the difference between…

          While my country is focused on economic progress and industrial growth, in my view, millions of India’s children are lagging farther and farther behind. This is the heart-rending reality of human prejudice, intolerance, and indifference! Sadly, even as I write this article, a well-established Christian organization has been forced to withdraw its outreach to children…

            Another year has gone by rapidly, but not without much excitement and a great deal of accomplishments. All this stands as an amazing testimony to what God can do with simple, but willing, human vessels. He blessed our efforts in 2016 as we stepped out in faith following the vision he placed on our hearts. Thank…

              Love One Hundred More

              In God’s household there is never a sign that says, “Sorry, no more space here.” There is always a way to bring in, accept, embrace and extend generous love one more time, in one more direction. When Prati and I had our first child, we thought we could never love another in the same way.…

                Dear Friends, We envision a day when a Bible-centered, life-giving church has been established in every village, all across India, and even in the other nations of South Asia, leading to the fulfillment of the Great Commission and the extension of God’s Kingdom. The strategy for this, however, is predicated on two core convictions: First,…

                  God is working in amazing ways in this part of the world, changing the lives of thousands of people every day. It is simply thrilling to be a part of His great work and to be instrumental in the process of God drawing people to Himself. While the work of winning individual souls to Jesus…

                    Have you ever heard of the Third Wave? I like describing our work with that term, because it really has been the key to the growth of the churches in South Asia. Here is what I mean when discussing “waves” of mission activity: Wave 1: Cross-cultural or foreign mission efforts introduce people to the gospel.…
