Stephen Cozens from Wiltshire visited India in 2014 and saw for himself the work on the ground being led by Mission India.
"Despite the reality of daily persecution, the Christian Gospel is spreading across India. Signs and wonders of Christ in and through the lives of men and women and children are now common place.
"My name is Stephen Cozens, 57 years old, father of three and a grandfather too. During 2014 I became interested in Mission India through a friendship with Pradip (an evangelist) and his family who live in my home town in Wiltshire. God nudged me to accept an invitation to travel with Pradip to India in December 2014.
"Nothing prepared me for the absolute poverty and overwhelming generosity of those I lived with for a short time as I crossed India.
"The people I was encouraged to meet were all of the lower casts slum or village dwellers or in the Nilgiris Hills mountain peoples who are discouraged from communicating with foreigners, against their own will.
"The various field workers who took me to these places risk their lives every day to share the words of our living loving God.
"The results of selecting and training local men and women as evangelists are simply inspiring. In 2013 Mission India records almost 8,000 new worship centres established and more through 3,000 church plants, as well as 3,300 childrens Bible clubs and 1,500 adult literacy classes.
"Let us pray for more signs and wonders across India; blessings upon those who meet the living God in Jesus and the joy of dreams and visions of Jesus upon those who seek to persecute His church."
