J.C. and Betty Choate moved to Pakistan to begin the Lord’s church in Karachi in 1962. Following five years of work, with six congregations established, they moved to Colombo, Sri Lanka to plant the church in that city. In 1968 they moved to New Delhi, the capital of India.
In 1974 it became possible to begin airing the Gospel over Radio Sri Lanka, “the Giant of Asia”, with India as the target of programs in five of her major languages. J.C. did broadcasts in English, Sunny David spoke in Hindi, Joshua Gootam was the Telugu speaker, P.R. Swamy preached in Tamil, and P.K. Varghese was the Malayalam speaker. The printing of literature — monthly magazines, Bible correspondence courses, study books, and tracts — put follow-up tools in the hands of local preachers and Christians. The result has been widespread teaching of the Truth and a great harvest of souls.
Television has replaced much of the radio coverage. Preacher training schools have been established, as well as a program for training local Christians to evangelize [JC School of Evangelism].
J.C. went to his eternal reward in 2008, but the work that he began continues through the efforts of the World Evangelism team.
Because the work we do is a team effort — Churches and Christians in the United States reaching out through us to the Christians in other nations — we feel that it is vital that reports be made on a regular basis. In this way, supporters can know of the work being done and can share in the joy of souls being saved and edified through their contributions and prayers.
It is our practice to send these updates every two months. If, at any time, there are questions or suggestions concerning the work, we would be happy to hear from you. Please pray for our wisdom in the teaching of God’s word and in the use of His funds.
