Join the Generosity Movement
When Manoj* donated the plot of land adjacent to his home for the building of a prayer hall, he never imagined the nightmarish ordeal he and his family would endure. Excited about the construction of the prayer hall, Christian Believers in a town in India gathered to dedicate the building. The dedication was interrupted by a mob of eighty anti-Christian troublemakers, who accused the pastor of forceful conversion–an “offense” that carries quite a high penalty.
Manoj immediately knew that he would be targeted for donating the plot of land for Christian activity. Fearing for his life, he fled the town. The following day, nearly fifty anti-Christian miscreants stormed into his home. They searched the house. Unable to find Manoj, they turned their fury on his family who were there. They mercilessly beat them and left. Even though complaints were lodged against the culprits, the police have not yet filed charges against them.
Political parties that promote Hindu nationalism and social conservatism rule certain states in India. They have put in place stringent anti-conversion laws to restrict the free practice of other religions, particularly Christianity. Believers constantly face the threat of violence and imprisonment. Notwithstanding the danger to life and property, Believers in this region continue to courageously worship God and bravely share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those around them.
