Pray for Five Christian Families Expelled from Their Village

[472] prayers in [25] nations have been posted for Five Christian Families.

Five Christian families were expelled from their village recently for refusing to participate in a festival honoring Hindu gods. In March, several members of a Hindu radical group entered the predominantly Hindu village to collect money for the festival. Twenty families that had become Christian in the past two years refused to contribute because they were not going to attend the festival. The radicals shouted insults at them and later returned to further intimidate the Christians. After harassing the families for several days, the radicals announced to the entire village that the Christians should be denied access to public services. When the Christian families complained to police, they were told to comply with the Hindus’ demands. Under heavy pressure from the radicals and village leaders, 15 families agreed to pay a fine to remain in the village. A church has taken in the other five Christian families. Pray that these believers will be encouraged in their faith and will find work enabling them to support their families.
