India is the second most populous nation in the world. With 1.3 billion people, it is more populous than North America and South America combined. And 95% of India’s people have little or no access to the Gospel of Christ.
For this reason, North Side has chosen to help spread the good news of our Savior to this nation in need. At the beginning of 2014, we will begin to serve the people of India on several different fronts.
The most direct and immediate impact we can make is by helping provide water to Indian villages that do not have year-round access to clean drinking water. This year we are partnering with Sower of Seeds International Ministries to raise at least $4800 to build a well in an Indian village.
Our children are also involved in our ministry to India. In January 2014, they will start their own adventure in India during their Sunday school classes. In addition to learning about India, they will have the opportunity to give money to help Indian children learn about the Bible.
