At present BOAM has nineteen teams working in many states in India. India is a diverse country with each state having its own language. All of our teams ministering there are from the state in which they are working. Therefore, they are fluent in the language and very much a part of the culture of that state. Our Indian teams are often evangelizing villages that have never heard the Gospel before. Because India is primarily a virgin mission field, when they do win people to Christ in those villages we begin a Bible study and eventually turn that Bible study into a church. At present there are well over 100 churches planted through BOAM in India and many Bible studies that are being conducted which we hope in time to convert into churches. Our teams have been trained how to do effective open air meetings with all classes and ages of people. Their ministry at this time is directed by Timothy Burga, (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) .
Although God has greatly blessed the ministry of BOAM in India, we have only “scratched the surface”. There are now well over a billion people in India, and the vast majority has never heard the Gospel even once. We found working through the nationals to be the most effective way to reach India with the Gospel and then, where necessary, plant Bible studies and churches with the Indian people. The harvest there is great! The laborers are few! Since India is now a well established field with BOAM, we would like to reach out into Nepal, a country to the north, and to Cambodia, Sri Lanka and other countries in that area. We are convinced that India, as well as many countries in the third-world, can be reached effectively with the Gospel using this methodology; training nationals to work as teams preaching to the local people village by village. Then, once people are saved, planting a Bible study and finally converting that Bible study into a church.
Our motto in BOAM is “Committed to the Great Commission”, and the model of outreach God has given to us explained above, we believe is a very, very effective way of reaching the unreached with the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
If God has burdened your heart with this part of the world please let us know. Truly the fields are white, but the laborers are few.
