Assam

Assam is a state in Northeast India. Located south of the eastern Himalayas, Assam comprises the Brahmaputra Valley and the Barak Valley along with the Karbi Anglong andDima Hasao districts with an area of 30,285 square miles (78,440 km2). Assam is surrounded by Seven States: Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, Meghalaya and West Bangal. Geographically Assam and these states are connected to the rest of India via a 22 kilometres (14 mi) strip of land in West Bengal called the Siliguri Corridor or “Chicken’s Neck”. Assam shares international border with Bhutan and Bangladesh; and culture, people and climate is similar to that of South-East Asia – bringing the elements in India’s Look East policy. Assam became a part of British India after the British East India Company occupied the region following the First Anglo-Burmese War of 1824–1826.

This field was opened in 2012 Missionaries Anish Joseph and wife Shiby Ajeesh along with Bhageerath serves here. More than 40 people come together in the name of God. The service is now spread into 15 villages. The people here are poor factory workers. The children are getting only a very little food to eat since their parents spend a lot of money on liquor and other drugs. Today we are giving breakfast to more than 30 students here before they go to school. Please remember these ministries in your prayers.
