Recently we went to a Mission India event. It was very rewarding to meet so many prayer warriors who join us in prayer through the India Intercessor and to hear what God is doing in their lives. Many people told us that they pray, following this prayer guide, every day. What a thrill to know that the India Intercessor means so much. Thank you! Thank you! God is answering your prayers.
We remember when we both told God we would go to any place in the world but India! Little did we know how God would work through Mission India. He gave John a vision of a map of India with a few twinkling spots of light, representing believers. The light is growing and growing every year! But it is not without opposition. Our partners report that there is an increase in persecution, but just like in New Testament times, persecution is such a mixed blessing. It reminds us of a story we heard once about Gandhi. He was adamant about freedom of religion for he said that history shows that the more you persecute Christians, the faster Christianity spreads. The persecution our brothers and sisters in India are enduring is never easy. Some lose their livelihoods, homes, families … even their very lives. But they are not suffering and dying in vain; God is using these hardships and tragedies to strengthen the body of believers and to spread the Good News to even more people who so desperately need to hear it.
God is wonderfully and miraculously answering our daily prayers. Whether or not we’re able to meet you at one of our future events, we want you to know that we are so grateful for the prayers you offer every day for the people of India.
Until India is transformed,
John and Atts
