But all was not easy for them. In 1953, the Indian Government began to restrict visas for missionaries, so the Wilhelmsens had to move on. God called them to the island of Trinidad in the West Indies where many South Asian Hindu and Muslims were working in the cane fields. The Wilhelmsens hoped to use the Indian languages they learned to evangelize these people. For seven years they worked in Trinidad, seeing God deliver many from demons and building a church and Bible school to disciple new believers.
Then they returned to Asia, leaving young “Timothys” to carry on. Several times Kaare had to be hospitalized because of a heart condition, but the couple never faltered in their endeavors. They became pilgrims on the high roads of Asia, seeking out the lost sheep, especially among Muslim peoples. Traveling through Afghanistan to Iran, they spent several years among the ancient churches. In Tehran the young people they won and discipled became the nucleus of a new outreach through correspondence courses and letters.
