India (GFA/MNN) — The persecution of Christians continues in India, according to national workers supported by Gospel for Asia.

In November, extremists used weapons and threats to force a GFA Bridge of Hope center to close. Locals threatened the center’s staff with death, and the landlord was forced to kick them out.

Today, extremists have taken persecution a step further. Four believers were forced to perform rituals of the area’s main religion, reports GFA. Unable to continue working under the group’s oppression, the GFA-supported pastor left the village to work with another congregation.

Pray that the pastor is able to return soon. Pray for believers in this village to remain strong in the face of opposition.
