Andhra Pradesh & Telangana: Many Indian mission agencies work in these states, and many people come to Christ! Every district now has churches. But 16 people groups remain unreached and unengaged. Millions of Hindus come to Andhra Pradesh every year to worship at Tirupathi. 200 Christian organizations have bases in Hyderabad (the state capital), a key centre for Christian ministry. 40% of Hyderabad are Muslim, and it is also a key centre for Islam in South India. Very little is done to reach out to Muslims - pray for effective outreach to them.
Andhra Pradesh: The Church has grown dramatically, from 0.8% of the population in 1971 to 19% today. Indian missionaries from Nagaland and northeast India did much of the pioneer work. Baptists are the largest Christian group here; they, as well as others, continue to increase. There are numerous churches among the Nissi, Wancho, Adi, Nocte and Tangsa. Praise God for this, but pray for greater cooperation among them.
