“I have known Manohar James as a co-laborer for the Gospel and as a friend since 2003. He has distinguished himself in the service of the Gospel in many ways that lead me to trust him personally and recommend him to you. Over the last few years, I have been Serving Alongside International (SAI) Ministries Board Member. SAI has a specific vision for bringing Gospel effectiveness to pastors in the South Asian subcontinent and beyond. As the religious climate becomes more complex legally and more volatile socially, pastors require shrewder and more contextualized ministry training than they have ever received before. It is the goal of SAI to bring that training directly to the untrained pastors of India – those who have no academic training, and those for whom their training did not cover how to deal with the social, religious, legal, and cultural context of India – especially in its more remote villages. I have been with Manohar and SAI in three different states in India recently. This ministry has the ability to unleash effective Gospel ministry in thousands of churches very quickly – which is what Indian pastors tell us everywhere we go to serve them. I encourage you to support SAI in any way you can. It is a ministry that has the right strategy at the appointed time, and is being led by a leader with character, experience and the right strategic training for this work.”
