Kolkata is the capital of the West Bengal state and the former capital of British India. Once formed by the colonial British into a grand European capital, it is now one of India’s poorest and most overpopulated regions.

Kolkata is the oldest port city in India and is most famous for its grand colonial architecture.

The city is also the home to Mother House, the headquarters of the Missionaries of Charity founded by Mother Teresa, whose tomb is on site.

The Holy Spirit at Work…

“While I was studying at university, I became friends with two sons from the potter tribe. They followed an offshoot of the Sikh religion—Nirankari (which means ‘God is shapeless’).”

“I started sharing the good news with them, but they were very staunch followers of their religion. They didn’t want to listen to what I said about the good news. Then their father suddenly fell ill and became paralyzed. Another believer and I prayed for him continuously for a week, and he was completely healed.”

“After the healing, the father said, ‘Every Monday we will meet here and pray.’ The prayer group turned into a worshiping community among that tribe. As the message spread and people got trained, they started more worshiping communities. They now have 20 fellowships among that group.”
