Missionaries arrived in Hyderabad, a major city in central India, in January of 2005 as part of a Community of the Crucified One Christian mission trip. The team traveled throughout the area, performed some Vacation Bible Schools and fellowshipped with another ministry. Since that trip, the Christian mission has spread all over India through Vacation Bible Schools, preaching, prayer and praise services, and other Christian ministries. Beginning in October of 2007, a group of Franciscan sisters will join the Christian mission team and spend much time ministering and preaching to the Indian women.
