New Believer Persecuted over Rumors of Paid Conversions

[219] prayers in [11] nations have been posted for Aarav.

Aarav came to faith in Christ after being healed from a long illness when a local minister prayed for him. When Aarav invited the minister and his family to his home, about 50 members of a militant Hindu group gathered at Aarav’s house and began shouting and banging on the doors. The pastor called the police, who came and told the mob that nothing improper was happening in the house. But the Hindus were not satisfied, and police finally took Aarav and the pastor to the police station for questioning. The situation was apparently resolved, until local news media reported false allegations of Christians being paid to convert. As a result of those rumors, Aarav and his family have been evicted from their home, lenders are demanding immediate repayment of loans and Aarav’s long-time client has said he will no longer purchase milk from him. “The family is very sad and worried,” a VOM partner said. “We need to stand urgently in prayers with them.”

  • Dear Lord in heaven, please send Your wisdom and faith to these believers. We know You will provide for their needs. Their faith in the face of persecution is an example to everyone else. May they be reminded of 1 Peter 4:14--"If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you."
