The evangelists near Sagar area, which is close to the mission’s base in Damoh, are experiencing an increase in persecution. They are being beaten, put into jail under false charges and continually harassed.  These extremists groups who are planning, organizing and executing persecution, receive a lot of support from the local Hindu community. This persecution comes because of the work progressing in this area. Mission centers at Makronia, Badkuan, and Deori in the Dagar area were forced to close due to this severe persecution. The extremists come in large groups at the time of service and begin beating and harassing the evangelists and those gathered to worship. To avoid this persecution, the congregations are now meeting in small groups at different locations for prayer. False cases were filed for 8 different evangelists in less than a month’s time. Please join us in praying for the evangelists, their congregations and for the word to continue to be spread despite the persecution.
