You might never know their names. But you need to hear their stories. Two more pastors have been killed for their faith in India, yet the work they started continues.
It is very true that persecution is intensifying in India.
But the Gospel cannot be stopped.
Not by mob violence. Not by government opposition. Not by intimidation. Not by bloodshed.
In the midst of many deadly challenges, the name of Jesus is being proclaimed.
Let me tell you the story.
I am just now returning from my 27th trip to India, a country I love dearly and a country I visit annually to spend time with dear friends there.
I heard the report about these two martyrs from another pastor who worked with them closely.
Not only so, but I was directly connected to both of them, having laid hands on them and commissioned them some years back. They had graduated from a colleague’s ministry school, and I spoke at their graduation ceremony.
And when we prayed over them, we sent them out to share the good news of Jesus with the lost, whatever the cost or consequences.
All of the graduates pledged themselves for the Gospel, whether by life or by death.
