Indigenous ministries in India, helped by donations given through Christian Aid, are hard at work assisting the survivors of January's deadly earthquake. The Indian government recently approved one ministry's request to "adopt" a village.

"There are 108 houses in this village," the group's director reports. "Though we had wanted to concentrate on the section of the village where the lower caste people live, the local authorities have refused us permission to work exclusively in that area. They fear the people will become Christians! Well, we are open to helping anyone in need."

The cost to rebuild the first 50 houses is just over $22,000. The ministry director asks for prayers for the work to progress smoothly, the remaining needed finances to come in, the protection of the team, and God's favor.

"We want to complete the houses in this village first," the director says. "There are two other villages that have begged us to come and build them houses before the monsoon hits. Each of these villages is inhabited by low caste people who have been ignored by the relief teams."
