India’s COVID crisis – one year on

One year ago, during the peak of the COVID-19’s second wave, India was recording around 400,000 new cases and over 4,000 deaths per day.

Bangalore – where our ministry partners at Bangalore City Mission (BCM) live and serve – was dubbed the “epicentre of the epicentre” after recording the highest daily numbers of anywhere in the world.

But thankfully, God had a plan for Mirembe… a plan that not even COVID could interrupt.

The meaning of Easter – reflections from our ministry partners overseas
