Raymond interviews Mariamma Thampy who, with her husband, Thampy, founded New India Church of God nearly 40 years ago. They currently have well over 1,500 churches in 22 states of India.

They focus on equipping indigenous leaders from the different states of India, training them (in English) in their Training Centre in Goa, them sending them on to one of their 15 other training schools, where they continue to learn in their own language.

Every week seven mobile teams (equipped with a jeep/mini-bus, generator, projector, the 'Jesus' film and PA equipment), bring the gospel to a new unreached village - planting a new church every day or two among the 400,000 unreached villages of India!

All four of their children and their partners are also involved in running orphanages and schools, feeding street children and men, and planting churches in the mega-cities of Calcutta and Mumbai (with 60 million people in each). I interviewed her when she came to minister in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland.
