Audiomission World Tour: Asia – January 2017

We’re embarking on a world tour around the regions where our people in mission are at work today. Month by month we’ll be travelling to Asia, Africa, Europe and Latin America.

We start with Asia: November saw a huge celebration take place in India. In the southern state of Kerala, Christians gathered in their tens of thousands to mark 200 years since the arrival of the first CMS missionaries there.

Raj Patel, regional manager for Asia, was representing CMS, along with the Reverend Shemil Mathew who is part of our Asia Forum and himself a modern day missionary sent by the Church of South India to the UK.

Raj talks about the celebrations and their deeper meaning.

Then we talk to Bishop Irfan Jamil of Lahore in Pakistan about the legacy of Sadhu Sundar Singh and CMS's Asia: Prayer and Aware campaign.

Finally we talk to Joel Hafvenstein, who has recently taken on the role of executive director of the United Mission to Nepal, of which Church Mission Society is a founder member. He gives us the lowdown on one of he world's highest countries.
