Athem and Indu have been serving with IGM since 2005, working through Vision2020Asia. Pastor Chothe is currently working in the northern part of India as a church-planter. He set a goal of planting 30 new churches between 2006 and 2010. He is rejoicing in the Lord that many of these new churches have been planted. Land has now been purchased in Siliguri, Manipur region. As soon as funds are available, they will begin the construction of the “Siliguri Gateway Project.” Athem and Indu have permanently relocated from their original area of Sikkim to this very strategic area. From Siliguri, they will oversee the ongoing church planting ministries, Linguistics Center, Baptist School of Evangelism, and Bible College. The Linguistics school has already been started.
The Chothes’ ministries also include personal evangelism and church planting, translation work for the Truth and Freedom Bible Postal course, Baptist School of Evangelism, an orphan children’s home: the Home of Hope, GenNext children’s and youth summer camps, and Bible Seminars for church leaders.
