The pioneering ministry of Reformed Baptist Church in Salem, Tamil nadu, South India was started in the year 1995. Since that time David and Naomi with their children travelled every week from Kolli Hills to Salem. The travel was of 100 kms through 72 hair pin bends of the mountain in an old rugged van. For an year nobody came for the meeting but they were steadfast in pursuing. After so many struggles the church was constituted in the year 2002. The church grew steadily and there are around 100 people now attending the church regularly.
