This ministry (name withheld for security reasons) is headquartered in Punjab, which is home to 16 million Sikhs, the largest community of Sikhs in the world.  A missions training center was under construction, but the second story was unfinished due to lack of funds.

The following is additional background information supplied by Christian Aid Mission:

The ministry's evangelistic outreach methods include gospel films, house-to-house visits, mini crusades, literature distribution, hospital visitation, children's Bible club and counseling, with a main emphasis on training native workers.  In addition, the ministry has established tailoring centers as an effective method for reaching needy women, along with a primary school for children.

Although it is well off economically, Punjab is one of India's most unreached states.  With more than 2000 people groups residing in India, close to 400 of them have never heard the gospel in the state of Punjab alone.  The ministry's mission is to reach these unreached areas.  Today, 43 native missionaries are serving in this ministry.
