Shampa grew up in the slums of Kolkata, India. Though she is not even 5 feet tall, she has a huge heart of love. Shampa and her husband oversee the operations of Iris Ministries in India. They are reaching children in India who have been exploited and enslaved, or in some cases, simply forgotten and left behind by society. They are powerfully touching the nation of India as they rescue orphans and widows. They are imparting hope to the ones who are broken and hopeless, and they also are reaching persecuted believers in ways no one else can. Find more information at http://irisindia1040.com.
