[376] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Grieving Indian Family.

A family that recently converted from Hinduism to Christianity has faced protests and threats from the community for burying their 7-year-old daughter, who died from an illness on Feb. 26, on their own land. Hindus in the community, who traditionally burn their dead, have protested the burial and threatened the local pastor. With help from police, the family was finally able to bury their daughter. VOM supported the grieving family and their pastor. Pray that this family of new believers will grow in faith and be a shining light for Christ in their village as they continue to mourn their daughter’s death.
