From Create International's May 2008 e-News
The Banjara (of India) are an Unreached People Group of about 40 million who have recently seen significant response to the gospel. The growth of the church among Banjaras is due in large part to the work of Banjara evangelists using media tools like the Jesus Film and Create International's film, “Transformation”. Calvin and Carol Conkey traveled to Hyderabad, India to attend the 21st “Jathra” gathering of the Banjara people. They were invited to participate in this celebration to mark the fifth year since Create International produced an evangelistic film in the Banjara language and culture. It was so wonderful to meet some of the actors in the film, who told us they are “proudly” using the film all throughout the area to share the gospel. It was exciting to actually be in the midst of nearly 12,000 who had gathered to watch this film. At the conclusion of the three days of ministry, the Banjara leaders dedicated a newly built Banjara Bible School building in Calvin and Carol's name. What an honor to play our part in many Banjara coming to know and worship Jesus forever and ever.
Indigitech.net, our evangelistic resource distribution website, continues to improve and expand. More than four thousands evangelistic resources have been added along with a new "graphical" interface. Visitors to this website are now able to select the region of the world they are targeting and then zoom in on the country and people group of their choice, accessing the evangelistic tools available in those languages.
Covered Language Blocks
Another addition is our "Mega Language Block Map" which demonstrates the coverage of all of Create International's evangelistic and contextual fellowship films. Each language area is hot-linked to where our visitors can freely download these resources. Create International is partnering with major initiatives such as the "Call2All" in providing these free resources and film downloads to serve the worldwide Body of Christ.
