However, there are concerns that western believers won't help. "We don't know how long this responsiveness will last. There are workers in place ready to go. They're passionate, they're willing to suffer, they know it's dangerous, but the still want to do it. They just need a little help. They need our materials and they need a little bit of training."The funding you provide goes a long way to fueling the outreach, says Stravers. "It costs us about $30 for each literacy people and only a $1 for each child that's in a Bible club. Our staff is saying we could easily double what we're doing in Orissa if we only had the ability to do so."To put the need in perspective-Mission India currently provides literacy training to 130,000 Hindus, with 270,000 on a waiting list. That means only one-third are able to hear the Gospel.
