Day of prayer & fasting May 15 to focus on peoples of India

RICHMOND, Va. (BP)–One-sixth of the world’s population lives in India — 1,109 distinct people groups who are 79.8 percent Hindu and 12.5 percent Muslim.

That’s why the International Mission Board is asking Southern Baptists to set aside a meal or an entire day of meals May 15 to intercede on behalf of the 1,065,070,607 people of India.

A video with a variety of short features and spots on India, including a music video and a feature on response to the tsunami in southern Asia, is available free. Other planning ideas, information and resources also are available on the Web at http://ime.imb.org/dayofprayer. The deadline for Web orders is May 11.
