Praise and Prayer

Praise: From small beginnings around Ludhiana in Punjab in 1989 has grown one of India's largest church-planting movements. The missionary initiative "Operation Agape" was started by a small number of Christian doctors. It now has grown to 5,900 churches, of which 5,208 are house churches. The organization also has two Bible training centers, video Bible schools, social projects for slum children, and initiatives for education and self-help through small business programs. The movement's aim is to plant a Christian church in every postal code area in northern India. Source: Operation Agape, e-mail agapeldh@usa.net
