GFA World-supported missionary Mihir and several teenagers from his church wanted to tell the people in a village near their home about the love of Jesus.
They knew this would be particularly challenging because there were no Christians in the village, which has a large population of Dalits (“Untouchables”).
While Mihir and his team were distributing Gospel tracts house-to-house, a group of men gathered and started shouting insults at them. The group grabbed the tracts and tore them up, threatening the Christians and telling them to leave.
Even though all of the tracts were destroyed, God gave the young team courage to continue their outreach despite the opposition. They visited a Dalit family and told them the story of Jesus. The entire family chose to follow Christ that day.
The family faces strong opposition from their relatives and other villagers for their decision. Pastor Mihir continues to disciple them and encourages them to stand strong.
Pastor Mihir asks for prayer for this family to stand firm in the midst of opposition. He also asks for prayer for the other villagers to open their hearts to the Lord, and that his ministry will continue to bear fruit in many areas.
