Families Forced into Jungle as Homes Are Looted

[153] prayers in [10] nations have been posted for Evicted Christian families.

In December 2022, seven Christian families in Chhattisgarh State, India, were twice summoned by the village council and warned to reconvert to Hinduism. Both times, the families refused to turn away from Christ. After the second meeting, villagers visited each family’s home, first taking their household goods and then physically removing the believers from the village, warning them not to return. For about a month, these families lived in the jungle, where they prayed and fasted together for their persecutors and found encouragement and comfort in Romans 8:31 — “If God is for us, who can be against us?” In January 2023, the families were permitted to return to their homes, but their household goods were not returned. Pray that these brothers and sisters in Christ will remain faithful and continue to be a witness for Christ in their village.
