One can only stand in awe at how God works:

INDIAN TRIBE SENDS MISSIONARY TO WELSH PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

Indian tribes once converted to Christianity by missionaries from Wales
are returning to evangelize the Welsh because of their believe that the
country is in a state of religious decline.

The Diocese of Mizoram, in the north-east of India, has sent one
missionary to south Wales and is planning to send another in April, to
help the Welsh Presbyterian Church with its shortage of ministers.

Many of the Mizos, as they call themselves, were converted to
Christianity by the Welsh between 1840 and 1960, with more than 80
percent of the population becoming Christian.

Mizos refer to the Presbyterian Church of Wales as the "Mother Church,"
and the ties are very strong.
