Hindus should be aware that Christians regard such disasters as opportunities for getting new converts. This message just arrived from "Gospel of Asia," a Christian missionary-sending organization based in Texas: "Please do remember our leaders and native missionaries as they seek to meet the physical and spiritual needs of these earthquake victims. We are particularly asking the Lord to use this tragedy for His glory, to soften hearts and open doors for the Gospel." See http://www.gfa.org/
