A visitation was carried out to India by seminarian Todd Ohlmann and Pastors Walter Schaller and David Koenig. The new field of the BELC at Nellore was visited and meetings held with the preachers who want to affiliate. Many recommendations were made to the BoM, especially in the area of training of preachers in India. It was observed that the CLCI was expanding into a new tribal area and doing repeated evangelistic efforts at Kakinada. The BELC was centered in three areas: Uthukottai, Nellore and at its beginning area in Kerala.
