India (MNN) — Mission Cry desires to carry the hope of Jesus to Odisha State in Japanese India. This area has typically been recognized for Hindu extremism. As an example, Odisha was the location of the notorious homicide of Australian missionary Graham Staines and his sons by Hindu extremists in 1999. Learn extra here.
Bringing change to Odisha State
However Jason Woolford says that’s why Mission Cry is making such an effort to work there. He desires to ascertain seminaries on this area. And seminaries want books. “We’re sending almost $1 million in donated Bibles, Christian books, and seminary supplies. We are going to set up three seminaries in that space. And it’s so essential, particularly if you have a look at the inhabitants of almost 45 million folks. A majority of these are Hindu and Muslim. Simply two and a half % are Christians.”
Woolford hopes to see a giant change within the area because of these seminaries coaching Christian leaders to evangelise the risen Jesus. But it surely’s not going to be straightforward. “A 12 months in the past, a 14-year-old boy who was a Christian was crushed to dying with stones, and so they chopped his physique into items as a result of he was a believer. The one means that that is going to alter is for the Phrase of God to get to this place and for strongholds to be damaged.”
You may assist ship the seminary supplies by overlaying the price of the delivery containers. Donate at Mission Cry’s website.
And preserve praying for Christians in Odisha State. Ask God to guard them. Woolford says, “A majority of them are being martyred for a God that they will’t even examine, as a result of they will’t afford a Bible. I ask for continued prayer and a continued understanding of the significance of evangelism. God mandates us to enter all of the world and proclaim the Gospel.”
