India (Mission Network News) — It was an alarming week for Mission India last week. They learned that over the course of four days, three separate ministry partners were arrested.
Mission India’s local partners share the Gospel in their communities through Adult Literacy Classes, Children’s Bible Clubs, and Church Planter Training.
Erik Morsehead with Mission India points out that while their ministry partners are no strangers to persecution, this series of arrests was unusual.
“To have three partners arrested like that in quick succession was somewhat rare for us to see. Basically, each one of them [was] arrested for, as people would say, forcing those who aren’t Christians to be converted into Christians. It’s typically a line that we see from time to time being extended to our partners and it’s just an easy way to kind of rile up everyone.”
