Director’s Message

Dear Friend,

After his resurrection, and just before His ascension, Jesus gave us one final command: go into the entire world and preach the gospel. God wants all mankind to know of His love for them and His was – the only way – to salvation and eternal life.

This final command should be a priority of Christians today. Tragically, for many Christians, it is not. The issues of our earthly life often consume us and take precedence over what God calls us to put first. While multitudes of people enter eternity without ever having heard the name of Jesus, believers are caught up in the cares of this life (and friend, this life is not the one that counts.)

Jesus talked about this in the parable of the seed (Luke 8:4-15). Of the four seeds in the parable, one in particular seems to represent many Christians in the West today. This seed fell among the thorns. The seed germinated and produced a plant, but the plant never matured and produced fruit. Jesus revealed the meaning of this seed to his disciples this way: “the seed (the word of God) that fell among the thorns represents the people who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked and suffocated with the anxieties and cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not ripen – come to maturity and perfection.” (Amplified)

God used this parable to speak to my heart, convicting me to rearrange my priorities and leading me to establish Vision India. With the greatest concentration of unreached people groups in the world in India, it is a mission field ripe for harvest.

Even though most of us in the West are not prepared or called to go to a foreign mission field, that does not mean we are not able to fulfill the Great Commission. We can be a part of reaching the lost in India by providing prayer and financial support to indigenous pastors, workers and missionaries.

My prayer is that as you browse through this web site, God will touch your heart with the great need that exists in India and give you a burden to help.

For those who have never heard,

Rev. Randy R. Johnson
