Missionary couple receives threats after prayer meeting
Gospel for Asia-supported missionaries Rahul and Deepika Bhambri are facing a time of intense trial stemming from a prayer meeting they had at their home. The couple, who are both third-year students in a local Bible college, were assigned to work in this village as part of their field internship. Most of the villagers are openly hostile to the Gospel, and Rahul and Deepika have been under harsh physical and spiritual attack since their very first days there.
In September, the missionary couple held a special meeting with three days of fasting and prayer. In the last hours of the event, villager Girija Loswami disrupted the meeting and began shouting at the couple. She accused the missionaries of forcing people-including her own daughter-to convert to Christianity. Girija's daughter, Priya, was at the prayer meeting....
One really has to wonder about the supposed tolerance of Hinduism? There just isn't that much, and one can also wonder why India isn't protecting religious freedom, as a supposed democracy?
These missionaries should keep in mind,
John 15 19 "If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20 "Remember the word that I said to you, 'A slave is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 "But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me.---[URL=http://www.lockman.org/nasb/nasbcmp.php]]]NASB[/URL]
