Three weeks later, Christians are cautiously hopeful.

India (MNN) — It’s been almost three weeks since the train bombings in Mumbai, India.

Words of Hope’s Lee DeYoung says their national partners showed a steely determination to persevere and find a way to help. “India is rather used to Islamic terror attacks. There have also been some Hindu terror attacks, but you get the impression that the Islamic attacks are considered the norm.”

DeYoung says that ministry workers are still assessing the long-term impact. “I don’t think it’s going to have an adverse impact that we can see, and may even have a positive impact in that Christians can be part of the solution.”

Pray together with Words of Hope that God will continue opening doors for the spread of the Gospel in India. “In talking with some of our people that we work with in Words of Hope, we’re cautiously hopeful that ministry will not be impeded, and may even have new opportunities in the future.”
