Andaman Islands

Andaman Islands

Although they are south of Myanmar in the Bay of Bengal, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands are a union territory of India. They are are home to what is sometimes referred to as the most isolated place on earth – North Sentinel Island. With a population of only roughly 430,000 throughout the islands, the local pastors and missionaries we come alongside of have the opportunity to make a large impact on the culture of the entire main island, Great Andaman.  

Our 20 local partners reach out to people unreached with the Gospel, help children escape poverty through education programs, and more. In 2022, our support enabled these local partners to distribute 680 Bibles in six languages, as well as several thousand gospel tracts. 30 church leaders attended a monthly church planting training program, while 20 believers received training in taking on church leadership roles and discipling others. 20 pastors and their families also attended a one-day conference to be encouraged by and learn from one another. Through the efforts of our partners, 15 house churches were planted and 81 new believers were baptized in 2022.
