Hello friends! I would greatly appreciate your prayers for my friend, Joseph Thomas, and his family. Joseph was one of our hosts on our trip to India back in 2000. He works with orphans and lepers in/around Delhi, India. His life and his ministry are in danger. I have attached his email he just sent me, however, I will not include a couple of the pictures he sent me. The persecution they face is very real. The pictures of the suffering is horrific. There are some very wonderful Christians standing strong and doing the work of the Gospel. It brings the early church (Acts) to mind as I read Joseph’s email. Pray that he remains strong (like Paul).
Dear BROTHER BRIAN AND SISTER ELIZABEHpray for us in India we are facing lots of problem, the churches were burned by the Hindu people they are trying to kill all the Christan and they are mainly targeting the leaders and missionary in India, we need your prayers , last night we got warning from one group also they asked us to close all our schools which we run for under privilege children in 3 slums, we don’t want to close that schools , and also we are praying for our leper ministry, and our Sunday school ministry , pray for GODS revival in India ,hold us in your prayersin HIM YOUR BROTHERJOSEPH FOR LEPER MINISTRY IN DELHI
WARNING: I did include a couple pictures, which are not nearly as graphic as some of the others I received. There is one picture of a young lady who received burns, and others of some kids together after their families were killed.
Please pray for the persecuted church in India!
Lord Jesus, brings others to yourself as a result of this persecution. Jesus, come quickly.
