Story number 3 for 18 Jul 2003

By July 18, 2003

(India)–Believers in India’s Gujarat State lost their appeal against a highly controversial anti-conversion law. Media reports indicate the High Court dismissed petitions filed by the All India Christian Council challenging provisions of the bill. The law forces an individual or organization wanting to convert to another religion to seek prior approval from a district magistrate. It also imposes heavy fines and prison sentences on those involved. Please pray for mission teams and church leaders as they plan for their next step.
