The first Presentation Mission in India began in 1842 when four pioneering sisters came from Ireland to Madras (Chennai).  The mission spread to many other states in the Indian sub-continent including Rawalpindi (which was later to become part of Pakistan).

Sisters from India also established Mission foundations in England (Matlock) Zimbabwe and Zambia. More recently Sisters from India are also serving people in Thailand, Slovakia, Ireland, and the Holy Land.
