Evangelist from High-Caste Family Beaten for Visiting Low-Caste Villagers

[190] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Shanti.

While living with her high-caste Hindu aunt and cousin, seventeen-year-old Shanti, a Christian, developed a passion for leading others into a deeper walk with Christ. She led youth groups and women’s groups and regularly visited believers at their homes. During these visits, she spent time with Dalit believers, who are from the lowest Hindu caste. After her cousin, a respected teacher in the village, learned of her visits to the “untouchables” in late 2021, he repeatedly beat her and eventually forced her out of the home. Shanti’s aunt never defended her. Since then, Shanti’s pastor has let her live at the church. Pray that Shanti continues to grow in her faith and that she is able to continue leading her small groups while finding housing. Pray that Shanti’s cousin and aunt repent for how they treated her and come to know Christ.

  • Our father, help Shanti's aunt and cousin and guide them to the light. They still live in darkness. It's hard to live in anger and see only One Way as the right way to react to all the things and people around them. In their view, they have no right to choose otherwise. I pity them. Help them and meet Shant's needs. In the name of Jesus Christ.Amen
