Genocide in India

Recently, there has been a mass persecution against Christians throughout India. It started out in the state of Orissa but has quickly spread throughout the country because of authority apathy. Christians have been falsely accused of many crimes, and have been burned, maimed or suffered other atrocities. Churches, schools, orphanages and homes of Christians have been burned. Parents have been ripped from their children and thousands of families are now displaced and have been forced to live in refuge.

The most important thing for us in America to do is to raise awareness about this horrific situation. You may feel as though you have nothing to offer, but you CAN DO SOMETHING. We have the opportunity to give these victims a voice when their voices are being silenced.

Matthew 5:10
"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for their's is the kingdom of heaven."
