The Pearsons – India

God has put 3 fields before us:

1)     Love Mumbai, and Marathi villages – (a) with Ganesh and family, planting churches in the slums, and going out into villages just outside the city where Jesus name is not known yet. By grace we have 3 churches in the slums of Nalasopara, north Mumbai. (b) teaching Bible college in Mumbai to see God raise up more native church planters; Bethany disciples the ladies and Doug disciples the men, pray for strength and wisdom

2)     Love Nepal/Bhutan – (a) training Nepali pastors in the Word of God and helping them rescue orphans – (the Hope Family) with Pastor Rajan and the church in Katmandu, (b) investing in Ratan, a bible college student here in Mumbai, from Bhutan. By grace, he will graduate next year and we will send him to plant churches in Bhutan, along the Nepali/Indian border near Bhutan; (c) praying for inner-city Kansas City, Kansas, and the Nepali refugees being reached by David Pierce and team with Shiloh Bible Fellowship.

3)     Love Orissa – Pastor Pradeep Limma, my disciple. We sent him from Mumbai to plant a church in his native land. It has grown to over 80 new believers. And over 8 village pastors have come to him to be trained in Bible college discipleship. Teams from churches in Kansas City have also brought rich discipleship teaching there. I have gone there 8 times. Pastor Pradeep takes me into the villages and I see why they say Orissa is the most undeveloped part of India. Regions with no healthcare, no education, and no church/ gospel witness; children naked and dirty. I want to reach them all.
