Dangerous species of saturation church planters

- A church planting strategist from Uttar Pradesh told me his province has 180 million inhabitants (12 times the Netherlands and a quarter of Europe). He provides leadership to a 'small' network of 'only' 934 house churches.
- A guy from the south runs a prayer network of 300,000 intercessors who pray for the church planters.
- The Indians are also very precise with their research, which is impressive. In the past five years they planted 62,698 new churches. In 2006 they envision to train 25,000 men, 6,000 women and 30,000 children in order to reach 20,000 villages. But hey, this is just one network in the north-west. In central India they will plant 200,000 new churches by the year 2010, and in Mumbai 100,000.
