    Hinduppara Colony is situated on the border of two states in India. More than 300 Hindu consisting of approximately 60 families live in this colony.
    It is not a slum; but almost the same.

    All are very, very poor. They earn daily for their life. Usually, they are jobless or without income for more than 15 days of a month. Most are illiterate. The living conditions are not hygienic. There is no electricity, no telephone and not even purified water to drink - their drinking water comes from a local well. They use tin bottle lamps and lanterns with Kerosene oil for their lighting.

    There is not even a single Christian within 20 kilometers of the colony. Transporting facilities are very rare to travel. By the grace of God, the Salem Voice reached that interior remote area about three years ago. We started a Bible class as well as adult education. Many were interested and
    are attending the classes. We provide medicine, clothes, and children's education.

    When Pastor Paul Ciniraj and family were tortured by terrorists (read his testimony of conversion into Christianity from Islamic background along with the experiences of torturing because of our Lord's ministry in the website of: http://www.salem-voice.com), they were hidden in this colony for few days. During those days we conducted a fasting prayer. Almost everybody participated and accepted Jesus as their Saviour.
    We prayed together for a Gospel Assembly Hall. Praise the Lord! One handicapped poor Hindu woman of the same colony named Indira contributed a plot to build an assembly hall. A few children of God contributed small amounts, so we were able to start building an assembly hall. By God's grace, we have almost finished the basement.
    God willing, we'd like to build a Bible School and a residence wing for the local minister in addition to the Assembly Hall. It will be an Independant Baptist Assembly with an interdenominational vision. We expect that it will cost approximately $65,000 (US Dollars) to finish this task. We don't know where the funds will come from. But we are quiet sure that our Lord is faithful. Please pray that God may enable us to finish this project.

    [As solicitation of funds in a violation of the Baptist Board rules, I have edited the above testimony. Please pray for this dear brother and his people that the Lord will provide for their every need.]
