For those of you who don’t know. Our church FBC/LP is partnered with Indian brothers who are planting churches in Northern India. Mission Himalaya is the name of this church planting network and was started by our dear brother, Emmanuel, and his family. Here is a picture of them.
Below are some stories Emmanuel sent us of what God is doing through some of the church planters in Mission Himalaya we help support.

Emmanuel asked that we specifically pray for the Gujjar people. They are a Muslim people and Emmanuel has said they are one of the least responsive tribes to the gospel he’s ever worked with. Also, pray for our church planters who are working among these people! Below are some pictures of some Gujjar people.
