TAKING THE GOSPEL BEYOND BARRIERS

SIM India is working to see the Kingdom of God extend beyond all barriers—religious, cultural, and social—as we partner with Indian ministries, prepare leaders through training and resources, address issues of social injustice, and guide new believers into communities of faith. As we work towards this vision, we emphasize multicultural teams, holistic outreach, and business for transformation. We are thrilled that God is creating new opportunities for diverse peoples to taste, see, and hear of Christ’s love!

Communities where He is least known

Tibetan Buddhists

With 100,000 of the world’s 6.2 million Tibetans, India is home to the largest portion of the Tibetan diaspora outside of China. India has had a friendly stance to Tibetans since the Dalai Lama left China in 1959. Known as the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), the Tibetan government-in-exile is based in Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh, India.

Significant numbers of Tibetans also live in Delhi, Dehradun, and Mussoorie. Thousands of children make the dangerous mountainous journey from Tibet into India each year to be cared for in orphanages where they will have the chance to preserve Tibetan language and culture. Pray that many Tibetans will come to embrace a destiny in Christ as God raises up more Indian and expatriate friends to show them his love and truth.
