Early morning seekers come to the Sipra River in India for a “spiritual cleansing.” During the Kumbh Mela, an ancient Hindu festival, the river is busy 24 hours a day. The more devoted make it to the river at sunrise. Millions of people stream into the holy city of Ujjain in search of spiritual cleansing. They believe a holy dip in the waters will wash away their sins. As believers, we know that cleansing of sins isn’t found in a river in India but in the blood of Jesus Christ. This truth we have access to is why we send a missionary presence to the nations. IMB Photo
