March Focus: Lutherans in India, Part II

I am looking into the history of Lutheranism in India. It is going to take some more digging.  So far, I have only found the history of American Lutheran missionary work there.  One would think that earlier Lutherans also did work in India.

For now, here are the Youth Boys of Adaikalanathar Lutheran Church with a medley Tamil carols.


  1. Bartholomäus Ziegenbalg was a member of the Lutheran clergy and the first Pietist missionary to India.

    Pls check the link


    browse about Bartholomäus Ziegenbalg for more details and how he spread the gospel / social and lutheran churches in India.

    If needed please write to me at i will mail you the details

  2. Thanks so much, Sam! I will check it out later, and perhaps email you, too!
