India Children's Choir Coming to Lubbock

Posted:

Bibles For The World (BFTW) proudly announces the India Children's Choir will be performing at Hope Lutheran Church at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, February 6.

The famous India Children's Choir is on a 10-month tour of the United States. The Choir performs in churches, chapel services for ministries, schools, retirement homes and civic events, to name just a few.  They come from the hills of Manipur on the India-Burma-China border and tell the story of their people's transformation from fierce headhunters, only two generations ago, to ambassadors for Christ. A Gospel of John was given to the tribal leaders in the early 1900's which set things into motion. Since that time, Dr. Rochunga Pudaite translated the Bible into the Hmar language for his people, and today 98% of the tribe claim Jesus Christ as their Lord. The 22 children, ranging in age from 8 to 12 years old, are direct descendants of these former headhunters who live in the remote areas in Northeast India.

Dr. Rochunga Pudaite, along with his wife, Mawii, founded Bibles For The World in 1972, a mission dedicated to sharing the Bible with people in their native languages on a global scale. Since its inception BFTW has sent over 16 million New Testaments to more than 100 countries around the world. The India Children's Choir is a ministry of Bibles For The World.

Bibles For The World also currently runs 30 village schools, five high schools, a junior college, a seminary and 8 schools for the untouchable, outcaste Dalits near Delhi. The total enrollment of the schools is around 7,000 students; about 15 percent of whom are sponsored by individuals in America. In addition, a hospital has been established by Bibles For The World in Northeast India ministering to the people's physical and spiritual needs.

Hope Lutheran Church is located at 5700 98th Street, at Frankford Avenue.
