INDIA: Story Update – Christian Women Released on Bail

Sep 7, 2022 | VoM

Two weeks ago we shared a story about six Christian women in Uttar Pradesh, India, who were arrested for allegedly participating in forcible conversion activities.

The allegations and resulting detainment took place after these women had gathered for a birthday party and prayed before they cut the cake.

We are happy to report that bail was granted for all six women at a court hearing on 24 August. Although the case against the women is still pending, they have at least been reunited with their families in the interim.

Despite the intimidation and violence that has taken place in many of India’s states, many Christians continue to unashamedly preach the gospel.

Please Pray

Praise God that these six women have been able to return home as they await a final verdict.

Pray that the case against them will be completely dismissed, and that those responsible for making the accusations will be convicted and experience the love of Christ.

Pray for India’s leaders, that they may reign with justice and righteousness.
