MADURAI, INDIA: The Indian government has requested ten American missionaries, now staying on Rameswaram Island at the tip of South India, to leave the country by November 19. The ministry said they had not renewed their visas as they are required to do every six months. The American evangelists were working for the Meyyampul church in Rameswaram. India has not issued visas for foreign missionaries for quite some time, but allowed those in the country--some for 40 years or more--to stay on. However, those who stay must be diligent in renewals.
