Bold Witness Draws Opposition

[198] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Anuradha.

In July, Anuradha shared the gospel with three families in her Sri Lankan village and invited the pastor of her church to pray for them. When word of this reached the local temple, the monk and 50 other people came to Anuradha’s house and threatened her to stop these Christian activities. She boldly answered them that she would not stop. A few days later, nearly 80 people came to her home and demanded that she be investigated by the police. Anuradha has agreed to a police investigation. Pray for her to receive divine wisdom and boldness to share the truth of the gospel before the police and her community.
