Story number 1 for 5 Feb 2003

(India)–We begin today in India as Christians continue to face opposition from radical Hindus, who are gaining political power in that nation. Words of Hope’s Lee DeYoung just returned from India where he describes the oppression facing believers there. “More and more states of India are politically passing anti conversion laws. Our partners, who are involved in working in India, are not finding that their efforts in recent months have been curtailed in any increased way because of the threat of persecution, but I would says they’re more and more careful.” DeYoung traveled to the Hindu holy city of Varanasi where Words of Hope is having an impact through radio. “At least to me there seems to be a real spiritual presence of spiritual darkness, and yet we were very thrilled to hear testimonies from a number people who were listeners to our broadcast in that area, which indicate that their lives have been radically transformed through the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
