Story number 1 for 28 Jan 2002

(India)–Topping the news, talk of peace is in the air between Myanmar and Nagaland. However, the atmosphere remains volatile. Gospel Revival Ministries’ Reverend Doctor Tsanso (SAHN-so) says their workers are careful not to draw unwanted attention. However, a recent episode showed him how unfriendly some are to the message of peace. “We were surrounded and then we were nearly killed. Later on, we came to know that these people had the intention to chop us into pieces and burn us into ashes. But, God prevented it, and none of those people put their hands on us.” Refugees fleeing Myanmar have poured over the borders into India. Dr. Tsanso says this is where practical action translates to the love of Christ. “The churches in Nagaland have come out with a relief committee. We are contributing rice and clothes for those refugees. Persecution is very severe over there because it is what is dominant in that area.”
