David Garrison, IMB Regional Leader for South Asia, has said this about the region in which he serves:
South Asia is a huge gaping hole in the Great Commission. With more lost persons per square mile and more Unengaged Unreached People Groups than all the rest of the world combined, this region of the world continues to warrant the kind of attention it has only begun to receive from the IMB and other corners of the Evangelical world…In spite of South Asia being home to one out of every four non-Christians on earth, it is also home to millions of radiant born again believers…We feel that the greatest potential for reaching the 1.4 billion lost of South Asia is to mobilize and train South Asia's indigenous Christian population.As you can well imagine, I am very excited about this trip, and the possibilities for strategic ministry it represents. All told, we are supposed to have training conferences with approximately 1,200 pastors.
I hope to be able to give some more specific information once we return, and perhaps even some pictures. But for now, for security purposes, it is probably best not to be more specific. I would appreciate very much your prayers, that the Lord would use us and keep His hand upon us during this time.
Also, I hope to have internet connection, at least from time to time, while I am gone. If so, I will do my best to continue to post, including my next letter in the Yarnell-Rogers Dialogue on the Great Commission.
