ICC Provides Aid for a Pastor’s Family in India
08/16/2021 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Following three months of threats from Hindu extremists, a house church in India was issued a notice from local authorities ordering them to stop conducting services. The extremists claimed that the pastor was running the church without prior permission and conducting fraudulent conversions.
When the church closed its doors, the pastor and his family were also cut off from financial support from the congregation that kept their family afloat.
In order to encourage this family and assist them during this season of transition, ICC stepped in to alleviate the financial burden on their shoulders. First, we provided a month’s supply of food aid in the form of local staples, such as rice, lentils, oil, and more. Additionally, we covered the cost of the school fees for the pastor’s children.
The pastor shared, “God has proven again that he is faithful… I want to take this opportunity to thank ICC, for the hand of help and hope is very crucial during these difficult times that we are facing now than before. A very big thank for all your help and prayers for us as [a] family and the Church.”
