Missionaries face strong opposition as they see more and more come to Christ
“Now, it seems it’s going to be hard to continue the prayer meetings because of the threats,”
11/05/2009 India (MNN)-As more and more individuals and families turn to Christ throughout India , Gospel for Asia missionaries face strong opposition in Maharashtra .
Missionaries Hardik and Prakash have served in the area since graduating from Bible college, sharing Christ’s love with anyone and everyone in the village.
However, according to GFA, “It didn’t take long for a group of staunch anti-Christians to discover what they were doing–and the extremists were furious.”
While the two missionaries were sharing the Gospel and were away from their home, extremists approached their landlord and demanded to know why he was renting a house to the missionaries.
The police, instead of preventing the group and helping the missionaries, told the two to leave the village for safety as soon as possible.
“Now, it seems it’s going to be hard to continue the prayer meetings because of the threats,” the GFA correspondent also said.
