Missionary Profile: Katie and Taku Longkumer

Taku and Katie serve as country coordinators for India, providing mission coordination of International Ministries personnel and partners in the country.  They also serve as advisors and consultants to the Bengal Orissa Bihar Baptist Churches Association and to the Council of Baptist Churches in North East India (CBCNEI).  Taku works with CBCNEI and its six member conventions to strengthen mission training, supervision, caring and support, while Katie’s focus is promoting worship and providing counseling training.

They ask for our prayers in these things:

  • That believers in Bhutan would have protection and courage to share their faith.
  • For church growth and the freedom to worship within the nation of Bhutan.
  • For protection, provision, wisdom and discernment for the leaders and members of the growing house church movement related to the project on line.
  • For protection and strength, as their ministry requires extensive travel, often in challenging conditions.
  • For Taku and Katie as they return to India following our U.S./P.R. Assignment, leaving their adult children and now a grandchild behind!
