"I am blessed with a team of committed people...
it is a joy working with them"
Team members from Oregon sharing the
Good News tape with pictures to the Hill Miri people
By Lok Gurung
Global Recordings Network began a work in northeast India four years ago when I moved here from Nepal. As part of Project India I saw tremendous potential to record the good news in peoples' heart language. The Lord has been gracious in leading me from adventure to adventure ever since.

Shertukpen people of Arunachal Pradesh
During this period God has enabled our North India team to record in 50 heart languages of the northeast. Each recording has its own story. In Arunachal Pradesh, we tackled a priority language for a language group made up primarily of Buddhists. There are only a handful of Christians who are looked down on and often persecuted.
We recently made a breakthrough into this language and a recording work is going on. As has often been our experience, there was strong spiritual opposition from the forces of darkness even when the langauge helper was getting ready to come down to Siliguri to record this language. Our contact recounts, "I had a serious misunderstanding with my wife the night before leaving for Siliguri. I called brother Lok in Siliguri and asked him to pray. My wife was on the bus to go to her parents, but God spoke to her and she returned home. If she had gone I would not be able to come."
Earlier this year we worked with a team from Oregon. Together we distributed materials in several areas that are hostile to the gospel. During seven days of trekking and driving we distributed several hundred evangelism tapes and 25 hand wind players to local pastors, evangelists and villagers. In one place, a Christian policeman purchased some tapes from us. He is posted at a checkpoint that allows him to speak to villagers coming down to the town to get supplies. He hands out tapes in their languages and is happy that this has become a ministry for him.
To help meet the challenge of Project India we are being joined by three more recordist candidates. When they get training early next year the team will have increased to five recordists. Another four candidates will work out of our Bangalore office.
Project India is an initiative to record 1200 heart languages of India. GRN has already made recordings in over 400 of the nation's 1600 languages.
Most of India's unrecorded languages are spoken in the northern region. The added volume of work required a new office and a recording studio. The new place is under construction already and we are trusting God for His ongoing provision so that the new facility will soon be ready for use.
