Introduction / History

There are a small number of South Asians in Finland. Most are Indians. There are some Pakistanis, some Tamil Sri Lankans and some Bangladeshis too.

The number of Indians in Finland early this century was less than a thousand but now there are more than that. They have restaurants and retail businesses. Indian computer and telecommunication professionals have begun working for Finnish companies.

There are also Indian engineers in Finland who have come as they like life here. Some work for Nokia. A lot of the engineers have come to live in Finland with their wives and families.

There are Indian students in Finland studying technology in particular. They are well educated in what they are doing and are looking for professional work with what they are studying. They generally speak good English.

Most Indians live in or near the capital Helsinki. They speak Indian languages such as Hindi and also Finnish and English. They are mainly Hindus by religion but among them there are some Christians and Muslims. The Muslims have mosques.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God will give the Indians in Finland dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that the Indian Christians among them will give them the gospel message leading to Salvation too.
