In India, Hindu extremists have promised to eradicate Christianity by the end of 2021. Children – the next generation – are most vulnerable. 

Many children are persecuted for their family’s faith. Violent beatings and pressure at school can be regular occurrences.

“With the rise of constant persecution in India... we see a great need for children,” said Sandeep*, our local partner.

“We are trying to establish Sunday schools in churches and to train Sunday school teachers to teach these children the Christian faith story... Because those simple biblical faith stories help children stand strong in times of persecution and difficulty.”

Families Facing Persecution

“The most difficult situation is also for families of the pastors,” said Sandeep.  “We are ministering to them to have a more close, intimate relationship within the family and to keep their family Christ-centred so they grow together in the faith, are able to face all those struggles of persecution and stand with each other.”
