Light for the World

Children participate in a Christmas program that proclaims Christ in northern India, where Hindu extremists increasingly targets such events. Opposition is not limited to Hindu extremists; one young woman who was recently baptized came to the wife of the married couple that leads the ministry that put on the Christmas program, saying in tears that her father had commanded that she marry a Hindu man. After praying, the ministry leader told her she had no choice but to marry him, and that perhaps through her he would come to Christ. Months later, the ministry leader saw the young couple joyfully approaching. “We both are coming from the church,” the young woman said; her husband had put his faith in Jesus and was attending worship with her.
