Now Entering Filth and Fertile Ground

Gospel for Asia Reports and Stories

Imagine living in a town where the air is full of stench, everything is covered in filth, violence is rampant, and there is no electricity or running water. Now imagine choosing to live in this town in order to share the Gospel with the people there. Could you do it? Would you be able to stick it out?

This is what Prisha, a Gospel for Asia-supported Sister of Compassion experienced.

Sisters of Compassion are specially trained women missionaries who have a deep burden for showing Christ’s love by serving the needy, underprivileged and poor. While serving, they wear traditional white saris that mirror the clothing that were once worn by the lowliest servants in Asia. These saris show others that they are there to love and serve without any hidden agenda, therefore opening doors to reach people that would normally be resistant to the Good News.

She and her fellow Sisters of Compassion chose to live with and minister to the people of the Punya Basti village even though the conditions were far from ideal. Violence was rampant and almost everything and everyone was filthy and unwashed – yet they lived with, loved on, and served these people.
