2022 World Watch List: Coronavirus, Persecution Won’t Stop Gospel Proclamation in India

For the fourth year in a row, India is in the 2022 World Watch List’s top 10 countries with the worst Christian persecution.

The pandemic made life even harder for Indian Christians. Many were denied aid and struggled to provide for their families.

But God is using these same believers to be His agents of love and compassion to their non-believing neighbors. Mission India equips native Christians to carry out Gospel outreach, and Erik with Mission India says they’re excited for 2022!

“In spite of all these crazy things that are happening in the world, from pandemics to cyclones to persecution, we just strongly believe that God is going to proclaim His love and grace throughout that entire nation,” Erik says.

That word “proclaim” is Mission India’s focus this year. Among India’s 1.3 billion people, 95% are unreached with the Gospel — they have never heard the saving message of Jesus Christ.

As Romans 10:14b says, “…how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” (NIV)
