Lady B. is a pastor's wife, a mother of two, and helps lead churches and a development center. She loves doing village outreach and working with short term mission teams from Global Hope India. She shares with us about the diversity of the country of India.

Show Notes

India is a land of diversity. Different culture. Different languages. It's a very large country. There are 400 common languages with over 1500 dialects in India. The government recognizes 22 official languages, India has a large diversity of people and religions.

They have mountains, the Himalayas, plains and many coasts. It is a beautiful country.

Lady B. and her husband, Pastor B. have planted 20 churches. Their congregations speak three languages and are themselves very diverse for being a couple of hundred kilometers apart.

One thing people who are familiar with traveling between states in the US may not be familiar with is how, in India, it is often the case when traveling between states in India that the language changes and you may not be able to communicate.
