Pray for the Family of "Jeejo," Who Was Killed Because of Missionary Work

[304] prayers in [21] nations have been posted for Family of Jeejo.

In August, Maoists brutally murdered a missionary serving in Odisha state. The leader of the Maoist group came to Jeejo’s home one evening, set his house on fire and took Jeejo into the forest. The next day, villagers found Jeejo’s body, along with a note forbidding future evangelism in the area. Jeejo had been shot multiple times. “The main reason he was killed,” a VOM contact said, “is that through his ministry 44 Maoists have received Christ as personal savior and turned away from their Maoist activities.” Maoists are active in several eastern Indian states, including Odisha, where they are waging a guerrilla war in favor of communist rule.

  • Father, we know the truth. The truth is JESUS. Please comfort Jeejo's loved ones that he is fully alive with YOU and sees the face of our Savior. The "Maoists" will one-day soon find themselves in the same place their leader now cowers when they come before the Judge of all judges unless they repent. YOU are the One to be feared. All glory to GOD.
