Friends, As you know I come from Odisha, India.
Christian families are being persecuted and expelled from their community in Rayagada district. Christians are being beaten up and mistreated by some extremist Hindus in their village. Hindus destroyed their houses. Why have these families been expelled from their own village? The reason is simple. It's because they are Christians and follow Christ. They refused to worship the Hindu idols. As a consequence of not denying Jesus, the Christian families have been expelled to a jungle. They have lost their homes and lands for Christ. They are in need of basic necessities. They don't have clean water, they don't have light at night.
They are asking us to support them. These disciples chose to take up their cross and not deny Him. It's the time to identify with our fellow disciples and help our brothers and sisters. It's time to pray and extend our help to them.
