    Dear Friends in Christ,

    I can’t overstate the importance and urgency of this email regarding the probability of a revival that could begin in India on November 4, 2001. Three hundred million Dalits (low-caste "untouchables") are on the verge of leaving the caste system. This is a gateway for us to present the Gospel to these millions and more!

    Over the past few months, high-level leaders representing no less than 300 million Dalits have been in dialogue with the All India Christian Council. (The AICC is the largest Evangelical network in India with membership of over 2,000 mission organizations, denominations and other Christian entities.) Their simple request was: "The only way for our people to find freedom from 3,000 years of slavery is to quit the caste system and embrace another faith. Christianity offers hope for us. We are happy for our people to become Christians... Can you help us?"

    This request culminated in a historic meeting on September 7, 2001 in Hyderabad, India where over 740 of the top evangelical leaders from across India met with 26 top Dalit leaders to discuss how this movement should be handled. Dr. Joseph D'Souza and Dr. K.P. Yohannan (president of Gospel for Asia) give leadership to the AICC which is committed to mobilize the Church body to respond to this most urgent challenge. Gospel for Asia is one of the largest church planting movements in the subcontinent and has been busy taking concrete steps to respond to this move of God.

    This mass exodus begins on November 4, 2001. One this date, one million low-caste Dalits are expected to meet in New Delhi, India for a mass conversion event to Buddhism. Now, by God's grace, the option of finding freedom through Christ will also be presented.
