BMS World Mission

As the home of William Carey’s mission and ministry, India holds a special place in BMS history. That legacy continues in the form of a time in the nation’s journey that presents us with opportunities to bring the gospel of Christ to this vast and diverse country. Join BMS as we pray for India.

- Praise God for the provision of a grant made possible in 2023 through the generosity of BMS supporters, which enables Christians to act as a shining light in their communities.

- Pray that the persecution of Christians will stop, and that followers of Christ across the most populous country on earth will continue to be resilient and demonstrate God’s love to those who oppose them.

- The BMS boat has been transporting church planters to preach the gospel in the Sundarbans. Give thanks that 150 villages were reached and more than 6,000 people transported safely.
