In 1981 TCWM began taking the gospel to Southern Asia. Since that time, TCWM mission teams have seen more than 200 thousand professions of faith, and assisted in the planting of hundreds of churches. One of the primary strategies for transforming the culture with the gospel is orphanages/boarding schools. TCWM currently has three such facilities in Southern Asia, providing education, room and board, a safe environment, and spiritual discipleship for more than 400 students. These students are graduating and becoming Christian parents, business persons, community leaders, doctors, dentists, educators, and pastors.
TCWM mobilizes 30 to 60 mission volunteers per year to conduct medical, dental and optometry clinics, kids’ Bible clubs, direct evangelism in tribal villages, and theological education. These activities serve as catalysts and venues for evangelism, church planting, and equipping indigenous leadership.
Ongoing evangelism and church planting efforts also include significant community development projects, health education, and senior assisted living facilities.
