As Manhan gathered with village leaders to celebrate the start of the newest literacy class in their village in India, anti-Christian activists showed up and began threatening him. They hurled accusations, and warned him of dire consequences if worship services and classes continued.

Manhan did not despair: he moved his worship services online and notified the literacy teachers that for their safety, he would only connect with them online for a time. These men are now watching his every move, hoping to find a reason to arrest him. Manhan refuses to be discouraged, knowing God is in control. And this confidence spills over to encourage everyone he meets.

Please pray for God’s continued grace and protection for Manhan, and all the new believers that he serves!
