Pray that the Muslims of India will accept the chief cornerstone. Pray for their hearts and minds to be transformed by the Holy Spirit.

Work Among Afghans in New Delhi

by JS

How do you reach Afghans with the gospel? You go to them! But what could be a more dangerous place to reach them than their homeland in Afghanistan? In that case you must go to them in other places where they seek safety. When you find them, you love them. Didn’t Jesus say, “Love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another?”
There are about 30,000 Afghan refugees seeking asylum living in Delhi, India. Even more Afghans travel there on one of the daily flights out of Kabul, Afghanistan, often seeking medical care.
Christian workers are now reaching out to the Afghan community in Delhi. Their foremost strategy is through acts of love and the words of the gospel. Christ’s love is manifested toward them from their first initial contact and is followed up by everyone who ministers to their needs. A small community center teaches classes to help these Afghans acclimate to their new environment. Most of these Afghans are very open to the gospel. They know that they are needy, so telling them of Jesus who loves them and wants them to cast all their cares upon him is really good news; it’s the gospel!
