Indian tribes who were converted to Christianity by missionaries from Wales are now returning to evangelise the Welsh because they believe that the country is in a state of religious decline.. Very New Testament, eh? :-) Mizoram is right next to Nagaland, which was the focus of this recent CT story: "The Baptist soul hunters of Central Asia." Does the Catholic Church in India talk in such pointed and explicit terms about evangelization anymore? Or, both in the light of the Council, and the issues surrounding the sensitive nature of "conversion," is the picture more complex?
The Diocese of Mizoram, in the north-east of India, has already sent one missionary to south Wales. It is planning to send a second in April, to help the Welsh Presbyterian Church with its shortage of ministers.
Mr Sangkhuma said that the Church in Wales had been "decimated" and that he still advocated wayside preaching and knocking on doors as a form of evangelism in the area.

Diocese of Mizoram sends missionaries to Wales ...
That's in India and [I think] refers to the Anglican/CNI Diocese. [Via Zadok.]
