Asia News: Christians in India Arrested While Helping the Poor

According to an article by the Christian Post, Christians in India were recently arrested while trying to help the poor in a slum area. Several younger age Christians in India’s Nadu state were out helping the poor in an area close to the church when a member of the Hindu Munnani extremist group showed up and started persecuting them. The church had been actively ministering in this poor area for about three years. The extremist group member started yelling at and beating the Christians and then turned them over to the police falsely accusing them of forcibly converting people to Christianity. The police also harassed the Christians before finally releasing them.

Persecution in India is on the rise. More and more Hindu extremists in India are becoming violent against Christians. Would you pray for God to help these believers in India. Would you pray for God to help them grow in their faith and continue serving the Lord despite persecution.

About 80% of the people in India practice Hinduism. The majority of them have never heard a clear presentation of the Gospel. Would you pray for God to send laborers to India. Would you consider if God would have you give your life to take the Gospel to India?
