Despite the afflictions of Christians in India, souls are still coming to the Lord!
Matthew 5:11 (KJV)
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Romans 8:28 (KJV)
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
James 1:2-4 (KJV)
2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
Despite the persecution of Christians in India, the head of an international ministry states, that the country is flourishing in souls that wish to convert.
Don Shenk, the director of The Tide global radio ministry, says that villages are the ones experiencing the most persecution.
He shared a letter that was written by a young woman that converted through a Christian radio program, with One News Now.
The letter reads, “My village people strongly oppose us and started to torture us. Even one night they came and beat us badly and drove us out from that village. Now we’re living outside nearby the village.”
“They’ve also filed a police case against us and issued a false warrant in our name. But we trust in our Lord Jesus Christ and hope he will surely help and protect us in this situation. Please pray for my father, my sister and myself.”
Shenk conveyed his amazement in the courageous way that these Christians are taking on the authorities.
“Christians are not just sitting back enduring persecution,” he shared. “In a sense, they’re pushing back with their own ministry and they’re reaching out. Where they’re being persecuted, they’re showing love.”
Shenk explained that through The Tide, they are able to plant seeds for people to seek God.
Praise God for men like Don Shenk that have a radio ministry to reach out to souls that are in need of salvation! We pray that God continues to bless his work and the lives of those that are transformed with God’s grace!
